HORRIBLE!!!!!! – I actually liked this place when I was about 15, but that's when I was oblivious to what decent food tasted like, didn't notice how crappy the service was, too young to drink alcohol and know that the drinks have maybe a SPLASH of alcohol and a waste of money. The ONLY thing I can give DLR is that it's entertaining.... but so is people watching at the MALL!
DLR needs some MAJOR overhauling!!!!!
not for everyone, but i liked it – the food was crap, but the people were great. too many kids. bartender was a fool.
Overrated Rip-off – Stood outside for an hour waiting for seating while groups who arrived after us got sat before us (and they all happened to be hot 'party girls'). Once finally inside, they sat us at a table that didn't have enough seats for everyone, so we had to stand even longer inside while a manager bumbled around trying to figure it all out, having to dodge staff and customers as we stood around the table.
After all of this, the experience was better. The prices on the other hand, are absolutely OUTRAGEOUS for what you get. A tiny TINY TINY plate of shrimp and steak, HALF of what you would get at a Chili's: $15. Total robbery. And it's not like it tasted any different.
Overall conclusion: this place is completely overrated. Overpriced, bad planning, decent atmosphere. You're better off finding a cheap dive bar or a chain restaurant. Unless you feel like paying more for no reason to eat close to downtown with all the "cool" people.
Suuuuucks to the high heaven!!!! – This restaurant really is a fast food, dirty and unprofessional trash hole that hides behind the theme of being sarcastic and fun. My daughter wanted to have her birthday get together here. She saw pictures on the restaurant site with funny hats and read about the sarcastic waiters and thought it would be fun. I went to the restaurant myself to check the place out a few days in advance. Spoke with the manager, explained to her that I'll be coming in Saturday with 15 girls and three chaperons. She told me that they do not take reservations but if I call ahead they will move our party up on the list. She also assured me that this place will be fun for kids until 9 PM. At no time she mentioned to me that there must be a minimum order from the menu. Nothing to this regard is mentioned on their website.
I called Saturday afternoon to get my name on the list, when we arrived at 7 PM they did not have us on the books. Nobody moved us anywhere. After over an hour wait (which I'm not complaining about, they do not have any control over that) we were seated in the outside patio, which is OK too. Girls decided that they wanted large combos with wings, shrimp, cheese sticks and chicken fingers. Menu states that it feeds 4 to 6. I ordered 5 for 15 girls plus 1 for chaperons in addition to several orders of grand nachos and FF. I was constantly checking with the table to see if they wanted anything else, but they even could not finish what I ordered. The manager (a Head of Dicks or simply a Dickhead) told me that we need to order more food in order to get paper hats, WAW!!!! With almost $300 check I felt like crap.
The food - Sam's (or Sysco) frozen stuff deep fried or canned. Prices in the restaurant are higher then stated on the web site (may be they did it to me to up the ticket). The only sarcasm I heard from waiters was when they told my girls how cheap they were and told me that the crap on my table (before we were seated) was my appetizer. They themselves look like rejects from McDonalds, no character, no professionalism, dirty random outfits.
The only thing that kept me there that night were 15 girls in downtown on Saturday. Otherwise would have left right away. This place sucks; do not recommend it to anyone who wants a descent food or good time. They definitely will not see another dollar from me or my friends. Do not let them fool you too; it is not fun, it is not good, it is not clean.
Dick's Last Resort should be on your list as a Go-To place – First time visit to Dick's and was very enjoyable. We had a group of 7 people. Didn' t know what to expect. The waiter was great. Awesomely sarcasticly fun and great. The service was excellent. I had the Bufffalo Ranch Chicken Sandwich. It was wonderful. I would definitely recommend for others to try this place. Very enjoyable.
GREAT BIRTHDAY FUN – THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME TO DALLAS AND I ACCIDENTLY FOUND D'S LAST RESORT WHILE I WAS LOOKING FOR TGI FRIDAYS. MY FRIEND HAD TOLD ME ABOUT IT BUT I DIDNT KNOW IF I WAS GOING TO BE ABLE TO FIND IT ON MY OWN. BUT I DID AND I'M GLAD. ME AND MY TWO BEST FRIENDS CAME TO DALLAS FOR A GIRLS BIRTHDAY GETAWAY WEEKEND. THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT IT WAS A CASUAL FUN ATMOSPHERE. OUR WAITRESS WAS GREAT SHE ASKED WHERE WE WERE FROM AND EVEN INTRODUCED US TO ANOTHER GROUP THAT WAS VISITING FROM THE SAME STATE WE'RE FROM. SHE ALSO HELPED US SEARCH FOR NIGHT CLUBS IN THE AREA SINCE WE WEREN'T FROM THERE. WE ORDERED DRINKS AND THEY ARRIVED WITHIN MINUTES OF US ORDERING THEM. THE MENU DIDNT HAVE MANY SELECTIONS BUT WHAT DID CATCH MY EYE WAS ON THE APPITIZER MENU. IT WAS THE CRAB SPHERES. OH MY GOSH THEY WERE SO DELICIOUS. AFTER ORDERING OUR MEAL IT TOOK APPROX. 10 MINUTES FROM THE TIME WE ORDER FOR US TO GET OUR MEAL. EVERYTHING WE ORDERED WAS HOT AND DELICIOUS. WHEN IT WAS TIME FOR US TO GO WE ASKED FOR OUR CHECK AND OUR WAITRESS TOLD US SHE WOULD BE RIGHT OUT WITH IT AFTER WAITING 10 MINS FOR HER TO BRING IT TO US WE GOT UP AND WENT LOOKING FOR HER. WE FOUND HER IN THE FRONT AT THE REGISTER TENDING TO OTHER PATRONS SO WE HAD TO WAIT IN LINE WHEN WE GOT TO THE COUNTER SHE HANDED US OUR CHECKS AND WE PAID BUT HAD TO WAIT FOR CHANGE BECAUSE THEY DONT KEEP CASH IN THE FRONT REGISTER SO SHE HAD TO GO TO THE BAR TO GET OUR CHANGE WHICH DIDN'T TAKE VERY LONG AT ALL. OUR WAITRESS TOLD US GOOD NIGHT AND WISHED US A GOOD TIME WHEN WE WERE TO GO OUT THAT NIGHT. OVERALL OUR EXPERIENCE WAS GREAT, LOVED IT, LOOKING FORWARD TO VISITING AGAIN.
great b.day experience – We took my daughter here with a group of friends for her 17th bday. We had a GREAT experience!! The food was good (we had ribs, the kids mostly had chicken tenders). They had a great band playing and our waitress was fun and very nice. Overall the kids had a blast wearing goofy hats and getting messed with by the waiters. I highly recommend it for older teens and up....
worst food, worst service, worst atmosphere – my friends and I are new to texas and thought that this would be a great place to try since the website gives you the impression that it is a fun place with good food type of place with a great sense of humor. Instead it goes down in history as the worst place to even think of going to. I realize that this place is supposed to be funny and sarcastic.... ok i get it.... but the waiters were straight up cocky as hell, not even in a funny way. they didnt even laugh along with their supposed jokes. i was stunned that this place is still open. THE DRINKS ABSOLUTELY SUCKED! the waiter was not a "d*ck" he was a COK. and then we thought well... lets stick around for the food..... I WOULDNT FEED THAT FOOD TO STARVING KIDS IN SOMALIA.
the service was ridiculous. our waiter spent more time talking to random women and trying on their hats !! i really dont know what those workers get paid for.
ive been all over the world and have had experinces at many different restaurants. but this place is straight up trash. allow me to repeat ,myself... WORST FOOD , WORST SERVICE, HORRIBLE ATMOSPHERE
my group left in a nasty mood. the experience got us so upset that we went straight home and still get angry if ever the restaurant is brought up. dont waste your money.
calling this place "trailer park trash" would be a compliment.
Trailer Park – I made the mistake of hosting a bachlorette dinner here. My friends and I are not really the "trashy" kind and this place was really meant for that atmosphere. We showed up looking very nice (as we usually do) heels and all and had reservations...ending up waiting about 45 minutes, upon walking in we felt wayy overdressed.
The guys that were there were drooling over us and we couldn't eat without them wanting to take a picture with us...at least we got a beer out of the deal.
The food wasn't anything great to speak of and some items were overpriced. I don't mind paying $15 for a meal, i've definitely paid more...but i would like for it to taste good. AND everything pretty much is fried and greasy...imagine that.
So, if you're feeling grungy, trashy, and dirty...definitely go...other than that: it would be your worst nightmare.
Chain restaurant and bar that's popular with sports fans. – In Short
Wooden floors, picnic table-style seating, very loud music and servers are what greet patrons at this two-story West End destination spot. Downstairs, chicken, fish, ribs and seafood are served in steel buckets. Much of the menu is comprised of foods you can eat with your fingers--and many people do. A variety of international beers also are offered. Upstairs, it's the big projection TV that draws hoards of sports fans on game day.
