Brought to Dallas by the same owners as La Popular Tamale House, Peak & Elm Cocina Y Bar offers fresh, authentic Mexican fare made from locally sourced ingredients. The casual BYOB eatery is situated, naturally, at the corner of Peak and Elm, and represents what Thrillist’s Aaron Miller calls “an homage to old East Dallas.” The writer notes the bar's collection of local artwork, wooden fixtures straight from area houses, and knob-adorned bar as proof to his claim. Old Dallas or not, Peak & Elm’s food is a twist on classic Mexican cuisine, thanks to items such as tamale pies, fresh ceviche, and tacos tapatios—taquitos filled with Prime beef and served with sides of pickled cabbage-and-carrot slaw. One thing diners will not find at Peak & Elm, however, is chips and salsa; D Magazine reports that the owner, Jesse Moreno, prefers his customers don’t fill up before they taste his home-run dishes.
Since 1977, The San Francisco Rose's neon flower has cut a bright profile in the dark night, serving as a beacon that attracts diners in search of laid-back pub grub and a place to watch big games or belt out weekend karaoke. Each day, the kitchen churns out burgers slathered in barbecue sauce and cheesy pizzas, complemented by shareable starters such as nachos and cheese fries or baskets of wings doused in one of five sauces. 30 flat-screen TVs stream HD broadcasts of NBA, MLB, NFL, and NCAA contests for viewing while at the bar, on the pet-friendly outdoor patio, or from across the street with binoculars. In addition to reasonably sized screens, the restaurant also fills its Thorn Room’s 10-foot screen with larger-than-life flickers emanating from an HD projector.
