Food & Spirits: Get the Alligator at Gator’s Downtown (Dallas, TX)

Restaurant: Gator’s Downtown

Date: July 25, 2015

Address: 1714 North Market Street, Dallas, Texas

We were lucky that many good restaurants were within walking distance of the hotel. While Gator’s does come with some baggage, overall it proved to be a decent dining experience. As soon as you walk inside you are met with a quirky alligator-themed decor. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed and people seem to be enjoying themselves. There was a smiling, laughing gentleman out front hawking drinks and specials. As we were walking in and customers were exiting, they told us all shots on the menu started at $8 and to be warned. How nice of them. Who knows what mixed drinks would be? The drink menu, which actually contained more items than the food side, bears no prices. Not wanting to take a chance after hearing such remarks, I decided to go with a “tall” Shiner’s Texas draught beer. It was good, although I am not crazy over the fact that this $8 beer was served in a plastic cup. I’m no snob, but a real glass would have been better.
