Patio Drunk: Ten Of Dallas' Best Patios

Springtime in Dallas is a wonderful time, in between the ice of the winter and the oppressive heat of the summer, so grab every possible chance you can to get outside. While you're there, get drunk. It's what every responsible person does on a Friday in the sunshine. We've gathered together a few of Dallas' nicer patio establishments for you, so you don't have to think for yourself on a Friday after work.

Goodfriend (pictured above) OK, so the view is not so good, but the cedar pergola and patio here is great. A great crowd of neighborhood locals doesn't hurt things either. Goodfriend serves one of the best burgers in Dallas and swimsuit season isn't here quite yet, so grab a beer with one hand and your burger bun with the other and kick off patio season right.
