West Village, Dallas Dining and Nightlife

Moving day is never fun. But you can make it more fun by rewarding yourself with a night out in West Village, Dallas.

West Village has tons of diverse dining options and you don’t have to go far from your apartment to enjoy them. Here are some of our top picks for dining experiences to try near Lennox at West Village to get the most out of living in Dallas.

Casual Dining, Serious Burgers: Village Burger Bar
Sometimes you need a well-crafted burger. Village Burger Bar has you covered. Choose from their menu of hand-crafted “Cheffed Up” burgers – including specialties like the Champagne & Cheddar Burger or the Southwest Turkey Burger – or create your own with tons of toppings and sauces to choose from. Add fries and a shake or a rootbeer float, and you’re good to go.

Locally-sourced food, Texas brews on tap, live music events and outdoor “backyard” seating: this is what you’ll get at The Rustic. The outdoor patio is a top choice for happy hour and you can catch live music most nights throughout the week. Their food menu covers everything from fried Texas goat cheese to an entree of free-range quail, plus tempting desserts like Chocolate Silk.
