Near the Granada Theater - Dallas

My husband and I are going to rock out to the Black Keys tonight at the Granada Theater.

QUICK! Does anyone know of a good place to eat that is nearby and not too expensive? Suggestions please!!!

        Corner Market is right across the street. They make good sandwiches. It's like a cafe more than a restaurant, very casual. Granada also makes some food, but I don't know anything about it.

        but seriously, where do I pick up my ticket?

        1. re: kindofabigdeal

          I would love to give you a ticket!!! But unfortunately it's sold out and we bought our tickets months ago... you could try ticketstub or whatever those websites are if you are really interested in going.

          Thanks for the tips :)

            You really would suggest Corner Market? I am just curious on this one...come on!

              I've had three sandwiches there, two were very good, one was a strike out. I would go there again for sure for food. All the coffee I've had has been miserable. Plus, to me it's the perfect food and the perfect location for something right before a show.

              1. re: LewisvilleHounder

                The cafe's ambiance and the beautifully enticing display of salads and pre-made entrees - none of which I had, but probably should have - are probably the winner here.

                What I did have was 1/2 grilled cheese on grilled sourdough bread alongside a cup of "cream" of roasted red pepper soup.

                First, I wasn't given a bread selection and I'd never choose sourdough for grilling. If not doctored with just the perfect amount of butter, grilling can remove all sourdough flavor, not to mention creating a medium akin to a slab of slate. That was the exact result here.

                This rather dry sandwich was served, totally unadorned (in, on or around), alongside a half filled, overly large plastic container of bell pepper soup.

                The roasted pepper flavor was outstanding - but there's the rub. I wasn't looking for or expecting "outstanding". The sign said "cream", but there was none. So rather than an underlying flavor of roasted pepper smoothed over by cream, I had a bright red soup with a big bold flavor of roasted pepper. BIG disappointment.

                That's all.

          2. Corner market is on the same side of the street but down about a block. Cafe Brazil is almost next door to the theater. You're right about it being sold out - has been for a while. My husband is in charge of artist management there.

            1. In addition to what's been mentioned, there's Izmir Deli and Snuffer's....all w/in walking distance.

              1. Snuffer's is next door to the Granada. By next door, I mean honestly next door!

                Across the street there are several restaurants:

                There is a Mexican place I can't remember the name of (although I used to go for happy hour) - the food is OK but I'd go to Gloria's which is a block up the street. Cafe Izmir is there and also they have a "deli" next to Aw Shucks.

                I remember Cafe Brazil as being next door to Stan's Blue Note which is several blocks south - about two blocks past corner market. They may have moved in the last few weeks, though.

                  I ended up eating at Snuffer's and enjoyed a delicious Bleu Cheese Bacon Burger and two pints of Shiner... happy hour! Yay for that!
