Found this place after going through 90% of all the other pizza places in Dallas and finding out that their wait times were over 90mins. Got 2 large one cheese one pepperoni Sicilian style (thicker crusted pizza). Went to go pick it up and the restaurant/bar's location was kind of shady. However the bar tender was nice and the pizza... More

Had a few visits to the Elbow Room for drinks with my daughter and a couple of her friends. We had pizza which was very good. Nice thick crust not over done with toppings. Just done right. Chicken wing were flying out of the kitchen at a steady speed, they looked and smelled fantastic as they were being carried by.... More

We were 10 people who arrived in the late night, hyper and hungry. You would think that the waiters would want to get us out... More

We love this place, now that it has reopened. Ask for the Pretzel burger. Rosie does a great job and word has it that the new chef is hot in more ways than one. The place had won awards for the coolest bar, as well as world renouned pizza. Definitely eat here and linger. Everyone is welcome. We will return... More

Surrounded by Deep Ellum, Uptown on the west and Baylor Hospital medical district, Old East Dallas has a 'few" bars that provide a simple off-the-cuff venue that includes good food and drink when you've finished working a long week. This is a drink-at-five sort of place, friendly and amusing. You'll strike up a conversation with just about anyone, or be... More
