HORRIBLE!!!!!!

I actually liked this place when I was about 15, but that's when I was oblivious to what decent food tasted like, didn't notice how crappy the service was, too young to drink alcohol and know that the drinks have maybe a SPLASH of alcohol and a waste of money. The ONLY thing I can give DLR is that it's entertaining.... but so is people watching at the MALL!

DLR needs some MAJOR overhauling!!!!!

My party and I arrived for a dinner party. Our names were placed on the waiting list. One hour went by, and I asked the host how long was the wait. He replied "O, I cant get you a time as of now." A lady walked up and asked the same question. The host gave her a exact time, I asked why did he give her a answer and not me. He answered, "because she is white."

Overrated Rip-off

Stood outside for an hour waiting for seating while groups who arrived after us got sat before us (and they all happened to be hot 'party girls'). Once finally inside, they sat us at a table that didn't have enough seats for everyone, so we had to stand even longer inside while a manager bumbled around trying to figure it all out, having to dodge staff and customers as we stood around the table.

After all of this, the experience was better. The prices on the other hand, are absolutely OUTRAGEOUS for what you get. A tiny TINY TINY plate of shrimp and steak, HALF of what you would get at a Chili's: $15. Total robbery. And it's not like it tasted any different.

Overall conclusion: this place is completely overrated. Overpriced, bad planning, decent atmosphere. You're better off finding a cheap dive bar or a chain restaurant. Unless you feel like paying more for no reason to eat close to downtown with all the ""cool"" people.

Dick's Last Resort should be on your list as a Go-To place

First time visit to Dick's and was very enjoyable. We had a group of 7 people. Didn' t know what to expect. The waiter was great. Awesomely sarcasticly fun and great. The service was excellent. I had the Bufffalo Ranch Chicken Sandwich. It was wonderful. I would definitely recommend for others to try this place. Very enjoyable.

GREAT BIRTHDAY FUN

THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME TO DALLAS AND I ACCIDENTLY FOUND D'S LAST RESORT WHILE I WAS LOOKING FOR TGI FRIDAYS. MY FRIEND HAD TOLD ME ABOUT IT BUT I DIDNT KNOW IF I WAS GOING TO BE ABLE TO FIND IT ON MY OWN. BUT I DID AND I'M GLAD. ME AND MY TWO BEST FRIENDS CAME TO DALLAS FOR A GIRLS BIRTHDAY GETAWAY WEEKEND. THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT IT WAS A CASUAL FUN ATMOSPHERE. OUR WAITRESS WAS GREAT SHE ASKED WHERE WE WERE FROM AND EVEN INTRODUCED US TO ANOTHER GROUP THAT WAS VISITING FROM THE SAME STATE WE'RE FROM. SHE ALSO HELPED US SEARCH FOR NIGHT CLUBS IN THE AREA SINCE WE WEREN'T FROM THERE. WE ORDERED DRINKS AND THEY ARRIVED WITHIN MINUTES OF US ORDERING THEM. THE MENU DIDNT HAVE MANY SELECTIONS BUT WHAT DID CATCH MY EYE WAS ON THE APPITIZER MENU. IT WAS THE CRAB SPHERES. OH MY GOSH THEY WERE SO DELICIOUS. AFTER ORDERING OUR MEAL IT TOOK APPROX. 10 MINUTES FROM THE TIME WE ORDER FOR US TO GET OUR MEAL. EVERYTHING WE ORDERED WAS HOT AND DELICIOUS. WHEN IT WAS TIME FOR US TO GO WE ASKED FOR OUR CHECK AND OUR WAITRESS TOLD US SHE WOULD BE RIGHT OUT WITH IT AFTER WAITING 10 MINS FOR HER TO BRING IT TO US WE GOT UP AND WENT LOOKING FOR HER. WE FOUND HER IN THE FRONT AT THE REGISTER TENDING TO OTHER PATRONS SO WE HAD TO WAIT IN LINE WHEN WE GOT TO THE COUNTER SHE HANDED US OUR CHECKS AND WE PAID BUT HAD TO WAIT FOR CHANGE BECAUSE THEY DONT KEEP CASH IN THE FRONT REGISTER SO SHE HAD TO GO TO THE BAR TO GET OUR CHANGE WHICH DIDN'T TAKE VERY LONG AT ALL. OUR WAITRESS TOLD US GOOD NIGHT AND WISHED US A GOOD TIME WHEN WE WERE TO GO OUT THAT NIGHT. OVERALL OUR EXPERIENCE WAS GREAT, LOVED IT, LOOKING FORWARD TO VISITING AGAIN.

great b.day experience

We took my daughter here with a group of friends for her 17th bday. We had a GREAT experience!! The food was good (we had ribs, the kids mostly had chicken tenders). They had a great band playing and our waitress was fun and very nice. Overall the kids had a blast wearing goofy hats and getting messed with by the waiters. I highly recommend it for older teens and up....

worst food, worst service, worst atmosphere

my friends and I are new to texas and thought that this would be a great place to try since the website gives you the impression that it is a fun place with good food type of place with a great sense of humor. Instead it goes down in history as the worst place to even think of going to. I realize that this place is supposed to be funny and sarcastic.... ok i get it.... but the waiters were straight up cocky as hell, not even in a funny way. they didnt even laugh along with their supposed jokes. i was stunned that this place is still open. THE DRINKS ABSOLUTELY SUCKED! the waiter was not a ""d*ck"" he was a COK. and then we thought well... lets stick around for the food..... I WOULDNT FEED THAT FOOD TO STARVING KIDS IN SOMALIA.
the service was ridiculous. our waiter spent more time talking to random women and trying on their hats !! i really dont know what those workers get paid for.

ive been all over the world and have had experinces at many different restaurants. but this place is straight up trash. allow me to repeat ,myself... WORST FOOD , WORST SERVICE, HORRIBLE ATMOSPHERE
.
my group left in a nasty mood. the experience got us so upset that we went straight home and still get angry if ever the restaurant is brought up. dont waste your money.

calling this place ""trailer park trash"" would be a compliment.

It is what it is. Noisy, sometimes the waitstaff can be a little crude but the food and service was okay. It was entertaining.

Trailer Park

I made the mistake of hosting a bachlorette dinner here. My friends and I are not really the ""trashy"" kind and this place was really meant for that atmosphere. We showed up looking very nice (as we usually do) heels and all and had reservations...ending up waiting about 45 minutes, upon walking in we felt wayy overdressed.

The guys that were there were drooling over us and we couldn't eat without them wanting to take a picture with us...at least we got a beer out of the deal.
The food wasn't anything great to speak of and some items were overpriced. I don't mind paying $15 for a meal, i've definitely paid more...but i would like for it to taste good. AND everything pretty much is fried and greasy...imagine that.

So, if you're feeling grungy, trashy, and dirty...definitely go...other than that: it would be your worst nightmare.
