Stuff to Do in Dallas Team Pick: Kally

Standard Service Sandwich-Dallas-Thingstodoindallas

Standard Service is one of my favorite spots in Lower Greenville. The service here is anything but standard and the servers are always so nice and make you feel at home. They have delicious food and drinks and it’s one of my go to spots to grab dinner or drinks with my friends. My favorite thing on the menu is the patty melt with Waygu beef. If you haven’t been this is your sign to go!

Cheer on our Dallas Teams!
