The NFL Lockout Is Over – Get Ready For Some Football!
Posted July 28th, 2011 | by The Update
Dallasites are known for being devoted sports fans, so you can imagine the celebration that ensued when the NFL lockout finally ended on Monday.
The Dallas Morning News reports:
NFL players voted to OK a final deal Monday, days after the owners approved a tentative agreement, and the sides finally managed to put an end to the 4 1/2 -month lockout, the longest work stoppage in league history.
“This is a long time coming, and football’s back,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said, “and that’s the great news for everybody.”
So, thankfully, your game-watching parties will not be lacking this season. Wondering where the best spots are for watching the season unfold? Here are some of the top places in Dallas for catching the big game:
Frankie’s Sports Bar (Uptown)
While Frankie’s is considered to be on the more upscale end of sports bars, there is no shortage of the classic hot wings, beers, and other sports bar staples. D Magazine gave it the reputable title of “Best Place To Watch The Superbowl In Dallas.” Boasting over 30 HD plasma TVs, there’s not a bad seat in the house.
Hully & Mo Restaurant and Tap Room (Uptown)
There’s no better place to watch a game than at a restaurant owned by 2 all-star athletes.

Televisions and drop-down big screens are strategically positioned throughout the restaurant for optimum viewing ability.
The Pour House (Lakewood)
Plenty of seating and a large patio make this a regular for Sunday afternoon sports action, where you can feast on nachos, burgers, and all sorts of fried treats. Several large, well-positioned flatscreens guarantee a good view from throughout the restaurant.
Christie’s Sports Bar (Uptown)
Claiming to be “the Cheers of Uptown,” Christie’s does not disappoint. With a warm, comfortable restaurant and expansive patio, there’s plenty of space to relax and eat some pizza or a nice steak while you watch the game on one of their 14 big screen plasmas and 3 projector screens.
