There is nothing better than heading to a football game, whether it is a college contest or an NFL game. However, almost every Dallas Cowboys football game is sold out and the biggest colleges in Texas are miles away from the DFW area. That doesn’t mean that football fans are out of luck, however, as there are plenty of sports bars to enjoy games around the Dallas and Fort Worth area. With the 2017 NFL and college football season about to begin, here is a look at the best football bars in the DFW area.
Henderson Tap House
2323 N. Henderson Ave., Suite 101-102
Dallas, TX 75206
Henderson’s Tap House was named the Best Sports Bar in the Dallas area in 2015 and they still remain a can’t miss destination for anyone looking to enjoy good food and drinks and the best football action. The bar has over 35 televisions, all in HD, and all tuned into the best football games all season long. They have the NFL Sunday Ticket, so every single game is available to watch on Sundays, and they have the Longhorn Network, for UT football fans. They are also the home of the OU Club of Dallas Sooners for misplaced Oklahoma fans and also remain home for the Dallas Cowboys, Duke Blue Devils, Arizona State Sun Devils, and Arkansas Razorbacks fans as well.
No Frills Grill & Sports Bar

Arlington, TX 76017
There are four different No Frills Grill & Sports Bar locations and all are located around the DFW area. All four locations have 100 HD televisions and 35 satellites to offer all the best football action from across the nation. They also have subscriptions to the NFL Sunday Ticket, ESPN Game Plan, as well as other sports offerings as well including the NBA League Pass, NHL Center Ice, and MLB Extra Innings. This sports bar is also good for families to come in and enjoy the football games, with kids meals and large game rooms. They also offer smoking and non-smoking rooms for football fans.

While heading to Uptown is not always a fun trek, heading there on the weekends to watch football games is actually a good trip. The Rustic has a huge restaurant, a large bar, and a nice backyard concert venue. When it comes to football in the DFW area, they have large televisions both indoors and outdoors so football fans can watch all the action in the nice air conditioned bar or out in the comfortable fall Texas weather. There is also live music every night, so football fans can catch a nice concert after the game as well.

Located on the bottom floor of the Omni Hotel, the Owner’s Box Sports Bar & Grill offers not only hotel patrons a great chance to see football action on big screen televisions but is also a hot spot for people looking to catch the weekend football games away from home as well. For people enjoying the Saturday college football action, there is also live music after the games on Saturday nights. For those looking for some good food during the games, The Owner’s Box has that covered as well with jumbo chicken wings, wraps, salads, gourmet burgers, and more. One last special feature is a frost-covered icy strip that runs the length of the bar to keep everyone’s beer ice cold no matter how long you sip it.
