The Bearded Lady
Originally beloved for its stunning beer selection, the Lady commands as much attention today for its addictive pub grub and creative cocktails. A Near Southside staple, it’s also become a beacon for brunchers. Order this to go: Why dip once when you can dip twice? The dill queso, made with local Martin House Best Maid Sour Pickle beer, is a smart rethinking of warm, creamy cheese. Likewise, the blue cheese dip, made with Mosaic IPA from Dallas’s Community Beer Co., wins with its house-made kettle chips as a delivery vehicle. Pick up extra beer to go with the Spicy AF Burger, topped with pepper jack, fried fresno chiles, and grilled jalapeños and teased with habanero mayo. A nod to virtuous choices is the satisfying Texas Smoke Salad, a bowl of romaine garnished with honeyed pecans, roasted corn, smoked Gouda, a hardboiled egg, and dill ranch. Pro tip: Beer, wine, and cocktails are available for to-go orders. Call ahead for curbside pickup requests.
