The Madness has begun. You’ve already sweated over making your bracket, why sweat over where you’re going to watch the Madness play out. If you’re in search of the maddest sports bar in Dallas to see how your bracket unfolds, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve made a list of the best places in the Metroplex to watch March Madness.
The Box Seats
If you want the exciting feeling of being in the stadium and eat your ahi Tuna at the same time, go to Frankie’s. Just like sitting in a box seat, Frankie’s treats you like an MVP. With no booths -- and being able to accommodate large groups -- Frankie’s not only feels like being in the crowd at the stadium but more like a box seat owner when you can order more than just the average chicken wings from the menu. Each location of Frankie's (in Uptown or Lewisville
) has a couple 10 to 12 ft screens, 35 to 40 flat screens, and wireless channel receivers so you can hear your specific game right at your table. Basically every seat is a box seat in Frankie’s.
Visit Frankie’s in Lewisville at 2516 S. Stemmons Frwy and contact them at (214) 488-1100.
The Frankie’s in Uptown is located on 3227 McKinney Dallas, TX 75204. Give them a call at (214) 999-8932.
