We love to eat and we love great beers. Let us share with you our views on what Dallas has to offer in fine (and not so fine) dining and fine beers.
Dallas has few diversions other than eating, drinking and shopping.....and shopping does not interest us.
So we spend our time hopping from restaurant to restaurant and to every pub that we can find in search of the perfect meal and the perfect beer.
We randomly review restaurants and bars, dishes and beers at whim and give our brutally honest opinions of our findings. And while we concentrate on Dallas, we travel far and wide to sample cuisine from all regions of the country and beyond.

Martin House BOOery tour for Halloween
The BOO-ery Tour FAQ
This Saturday - Seven Ghostly Guest Breweries,
big name bands and freaky-fabulous food vendors -
we know you were already planning on being here,
but thought you might have some questions.
So here goes:
What are the extended hours? We’re open from noon until 5:00 – get here early to beat the crowds
What if it rains? The show will go on regardless of weather, the descent of eternal darkness or zombie apocalypse
Can I bring the kids? Yes! They get in for free, they can trick or treat at our guest brewers, and we’ve got goodie bags for first 60 little gremlins through the door
Costume Contest Rules? Just wear your best and be on the stage between 3:30 and 4:00 for judging – prize #1 - 2 cases of beer, #2 - T-Shirt, Hat and 5 Tour passes,and #3 - 5 tour passes
And the Music? The stage will be outside against the backdrop of our lovely city - bands are MHBC faves Ole G, Shotgun Friday, and Quaker City Nighthawks
Special beers? A mega tour needs mega-beers – you’ll get 4 pints as well as samples from seven guest breweries (Dirty Job, Collective, The Fort, Division, Chimera, Hop Fusion and Braindead) – plus the debut of Martin House’s “Gruesome Graph”
Food? Included in your admission is 5 samples from a sweet and savory selection of food trucks (Chez Flo, Tail Feathers, Hook and Ladder, Hummingbird Sweet Shoppe, and Steel City Pops) – just cash in your tickets that we’ll give you at the door - full-size options are also for sale
Lines were sorta bad last year. That’s not really a question, but… this year we’ll have more pouring stations, more guest brewers, a full 16oz glass, and we’ll be using the field behind the brewery so lines should not be too intense. Also: if you want to skip the admission line, buy your ticket ahead of time here
See You There!
