Best Late Night Eats2011 Finalist See 2011’s Winner »
5818 Live Oak St., Dallas, TX 75214
The place's slogan, "An Upscale Dive," presents two problems. First, many would make the argument that it's a contradiction in terms. And second, there's the matter of self-identification: A dive can't know it's a dive. Yet it still qualifies as one of “Dallas’ Most Authentic Dive Bars.” In the Landing's defense, the food and drinks are cheap, and the place welcomes all to come and slump into one of its booths dimly lit by a vintage Bud lamp. Decoration is mostly of the sentimental variety, with photos of beloved regulars and a shrine to the late beehived waitress Lucille. The CD jukebox is heavy on local bands, indie-rock and classic country, and the menu offers up everything from burgers to tacos. And, every night, from 11 p.m. to last call, magical sticked and battered dogs become fair game for the hungry. And they're not your basic corn dogs. No, come midnight these pups can drag a man from his couch and bring a carload from Oak Cliff, with their hearty center care of Rudolph's and a homemade jalapeño batter that isn't too spicy but holds just enough kick to make things interesting.
