Athletes go to Nick & Sam’s when they’re hungry.They flitter over to Dragonfly at Hotel ZaZa when they want to get their drink on. But when rich and famous athletes want to hunker down and watch sports over a cold beer in a hot spot, they congregate at Ten. At the corner of Main and Field, the downtown sports bar has hosted such celebs as Steve Nash (who stopped by to watch some English soccer), Charles Barkley (who stopped by to watch some NBA playoffs) and Shaquille O’Neal (who stopped by because he knew he’d be recognized, but not mobbed). Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki, Josh Howard, Eduardo Najera and even the band Puddle of Mudd have been known to pop in. SMU hoops coach Matt Doherty is a regular. With nine hi-def plasma televisions, a prime location adjacent to Hotel Adolphus and just the right dash of ambiance and anonymity, Ten has become the Bo Derek of Dallas sports scenes.
This is my favorite place to be on Sundays.
This is by far the best hole in the wall sports bar when it comes time for NFL season to start.
This place has every single game because they carry the NFL network. You could pretty much watch all the games at once.
The environment and the crowd is great as well. You can always count on finding fans of your own favorite home team.
My team is the Detroit lions! We’re few and far between; but, surprisingly there’s always a friendly fan that you’ll meet and more as you sit through 16 or 18 (if you watch preseason) weeks of just pure awesomeness.
As for the food. I’ve had the food here. It’s mediocre. I wouldn’t recommend anything except the salad. It’s near edible. It’s pretty bland. I think the hamburgers are decent too.
The server here on Sunday is great. she always knows how to take care of us. She’s pretty attentive and friendly.
As for parking. It sucks its downtown. I would recommend bringing 5/6 dollars in quarters if you’re here on Sunday. I just park outside of the bar. You could park farther away and get free metered parking but i usually show up late for the game because i live in far north Dallas.
Hands down one the best sports bars in Dallas, with tv’s galore and sound boxes you are covered. Also the food here is always good, espically the cheese fries which are amazing..and really good specials everyday. – Steve J.
