Hooters, Dallas, Texas

While in Dallas, we also stopped for drinks at the Hooters in Addison. Like Outback, I think I’ve only ever been to a Hooters once in my life.

Mix: Unknown

Chaser: No (spoiler alert—none of the Dallas bars offered a chaser)

Fixin’s: One lime

Price:$unknown

This was by far the worst Bloody Mary I’ve had in some time. Even though I was asked if I wanted it spicy, I found the overall flavor to be quite bland and I was extremely underwhelmed with the fixin’s. I guess that’s why they are known for their wings, not their Bloodies… anyway, I don’t need to go back here any time soon.

While in Dallas, I had dinner at Outback Steakhouse. I’ve only been to Outback once in my life (the Milwaukee location) and I never had a Bloody Mary there, so I gave it a go.

Mix: Homemade, I believe

Chaser: No (spoiler alert—none of the Dallas bars offered a chaser)

Fixin’s: Three olives, bacon

Price: $?

I can’t speak for all Outbacks, but the Bloody at the Addison location was pretty tasty. The bacon and the mason jar were nice touches and the drink had the slightest hint of sweetness.

From experience, I know that the Bloody Marys in Australia aren’t great, but the ones at the Australian-themed steakhouse aren’t half bad. 

You know the saying, “Everything’s bigger in Texas?” Well, not EVERYTHING is bigger in Texas… the Bloody Marys in Milwaukee definitely have those in the Lone Star state beat!

My first stop was The Quarter Bar & Grill in Addison.

Mix: Zing Zang, with some extra kick thrown in.

Chaser: No (spoiler alert—none of the Dallas bars offered a chaser)

Fixin’s: Two olives, two beans

Price:$?

From the looks of the establishment alone (and the fact that they don’t have a smoking ban in Texas), I wasn’t expecting much, but my friend and I each ordered a Bloody Mary, requesting it spicy and that’s what we got. We were pleasantly surprised at just how tasty these Bloody Marys were–so tasty, in fact, that we ordered a second round.

I wouldn’t go out of my way to get to The Quarter, but if you find yourself nearby and thirsty, definitely give it a go.
