One of the essential dive bars in Dallas, The Goat won't be winning any beauty contests, but its heart is in the right place. The staff is friendly to a fault, and everyone is here because they want to be, not because it's the place to see and be seen. Come here enough, and you'll build relationships with your fellow bar mates. The live music keeps us coming back. If you're feeling courageous, Wednesday is karaoke, but be warned: There's some serious talent in the house.
