Large place. House beers range from undrinkable (Light) to not bad (Butt Face), but on the whole were not worth seeking out. Food was OK. Best thing about the experience was the server who steered us in the right direction regarding both the beers and the food.
Visited November 2003: Big Horns is a Big Business, not much different than a Bennigans or Chilis, with some halfway passable "house-brewed" beers to offer. Better than going to McDonalds, but don’t know if the surroundings are better than any other big chain eatery.
this is a place that you can skip unless you are a ticker like me and need some time to kill before a Rangers game... huge place, sports bar inside, d-bag crowd... the beers suck, 6 regulars and 4 beers that I think they actually brew there, bottle list of 10 beers, all easily accessible... didn’t have any of the food but it looked so generic and disgusting I would advise against it
In town for football game. Busy place game day. Average beers at best. Service OK. Food OK. A bit pricey. Nothing bad, nothing outstanding. Tried the sampler, nothing going on there. Guest beers looked decent.
Lord forgive me for being a beer geek and so jaded that I find little redeeming qualities in this place. Also, let it be noted that a Californian added this and not a Texan. Lame beers, bad/corny/stupid names and ugly logos - what more could anyone want?
I went in November when the 6 flags park was closed, so no crown. WE got very fast service. Nice big clean place with plenty of TVs. I got the flight of beers I wanted at a discount. The food was also discounted very well. (offseason and happy hour) We went after taking the tour of Dallas Cowboys stadium.
Went on a Tuesday night for dinner before a Rangers game. The place looked like a very nice sports bar, with several TVs all around the place. They had a window on the side where you could see the brewing tanks. The beers were okay. Nothing outstanding, yet all were drinkable. Food was good, as I had the fish tacos. All in all, a nice place to go to when going to a Rangers game, but nothing to search out for.
Upscale brewpub in Arlington. Bar area is big and always busy. Very impressive selection of liquors behind the bar, more visual than anything. Tried most of their beers they had to offer. Bartender was a guy I went to high school with, and he knew what qualities to look for in each style. He was always around when we needed him but didn’t chat much more beyond that. I did appreciate his honesty when he told us the stout and porter taps were funky - he said something was off about it and didn’t want us to try it when it was less than what it could be. Had a few bottled import and domestics available. Food is good yet expensive. Also have buzztime trivia available at this location.
The beer isn’t great here but they have a decent amount of beers that they do brew or get from their sister company. The IPA was the first one I had and was the best...I suggest sticking with that. The food was pretty good but this place is really all about coming to watch the game. They have TVs everywhere with every sporting event you can imagine on! It was great before the Texas Rangers game.
Went here on two different nights while in town on business only because I had limited transportation and it was right across the street from my hotel. Large bar area that was not very busy either evening I was there. 5 taps running including the seasonals. The beer was ok but nothing to run back for. The waitress knew some about their beers but was not overly confidant and keep going to ask the barkeep for answers. The food was decent.
