In December 2010, the chef and owners here put a non-bar-food item on the venerable and much-loved Dallas institution's menu: a 10-ounce steak with fries, a far cry from Monday night's dollar fish and steak tacos. Other items officially added about that time were the shrimp basket and a tortilla soup. On Friday nights, the fireside picnic tables are packed sardine-can tight with more than just in-the-know hipsters. Above all, though, folks come to Lee Harvey's for the cheap drinks and lack of pretense. Lee Harvey's is a popular bar with a neighborhood feel – the wood-paneled walls and neon beer signs help – and prices to match. Next time you go, ask Bacon, the bar's cat, how the cookbook is coming along.
