Rick Fairless owns Stroker's Ice House, but it's his 71-year-old, profanity-spewing mother that manages the self-proclaimed "biggest, baddest biker bar in Dallas." Featured on the reality show Ma's Roadhouse, the stuffed critter-head and biker-babe covered walls enclose a venue born for classic rock, poker tournaments and wet T-shirt contests. This all fueled by the only beer on draft, Miller Lite. Though other beer and liquor selections are available, the bar's "when it rains we pour" policy makes dollar drafts hard to turn down in gloomy weather. Also available: a tattoo parlor and bike shop complete with bikini bike-wash girls.
