Whether you’ll be flying the crimson and cream or sporting burnt orange this October 8, Trinity Groves has all your big game needs covered. No other single location in Dallas has as much to offer visitors from either side of the Red River.
Trinity Groves is home to fine dining, D Magazine’s “Best Brewery” (Four Corners), art galleries and plenty of spacious patios and outdoor seating options where you can lounge, catch up with classmates — and heckle your rivals. And, with the Cotton Bowl just 5 miles away, we’re more than conveniently located. We’re also five minutes from one of Dallas’ signature boutique hotels, the Belmont, and downtown is just a quick trip over the stunning Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge.
Get your tailgating on early by cutting into some prime rib-eye at The Hall, one of Zagat’s “Hottest New Steakhouses” in the United States. Beyond the roasted green chili hummus and the Creole strudel, one of the main attractions at The Hall is “The Wall.” Decorated with photographs of legendary North Texas collegiate football stars, The Wall at The Hall is a destination for any true fan.
If you can’t score tickets to the game, check out all the HD-viewing options at Trinity Groves. Cheer on your team and get even more fired-up with a shishito pepper-infused margarita at Resto Gastro Bistro. Or bring your watching party over to LUCK. You’ll find no better — or tastier — introduction to the craft beers of North Texas, and, regardless of whether your tastes run sweet or savory, the kitchen specializes in dishes that pair perfectly with what’s on tap.
Finally, UT and OU fans can agree on one thing: the superiority of genuine Texas barbecue. Babb Brothers BBQ & Blues is about as traditional as it gets. Red-and-white checkered tablecloths? Check. Brisket you can order by the pound? Check. Great blues music every Saturday night, including after the Red River Showdown? Check.
And speaking of your post-game options, don’t forget about Sunday brunch. Extend the thrill of victory or salve the agony of defeat by sampling the unique fusion of Latin and Chinese cuisines at Chino Chinatown. The State Fair’s parade of deep-fried goodies has got nothing on Chino’s fries: wedges of yucca cooked to a crisp golden brown in duck fat and served with cotija cheese and sriracha ketchup. Chino Chinatown also serves a variety of Bloody Marys, including one made with chorizo-infused vodka and rimmed with Chinese bacon salt.
If you missed Resto Gastro Bistro on Saturday, Sunday is a great day to discover Chef DJ Quintanilla’s take on chicken and waffles, French toast (crème brûlée!) or to simply relax with a classic mimosa.
This TX-OU weekend, Trinity Groves is your winning pick for dining, hanging out and making lasting memories, win or lose.
