    Stephan Pyles captured Texas in a restaurant! Lots of options from beef to pork to fish. Skirt steak and tacos are winners. If you eat pork, you'll be in pig heaven since it's somehow incorporated in 75% of the menu items in the form of ears, skins, bellies. You can even find the Canyon Ranch frozen margarita on the cocktail offering. It made a great dessert option.

    Dined on 10/9/2014
    We have dined at Stampede 66 several times and have never been disappointed. The décor is so Texas-centric and manages to be fun and elegant at the same time. Romantic booths line one wall with "windows" above where movies of outdoor ranch scenes play, the quirky names of small Texas towns painted on wooden plaques adorn another, it is simply a great place to be. They make a killer tableside margarita and a perfect dry martini. The menu has something for everyone. I had delicious quail and hubby had fish tacos, also wonderful. The service is attentive but not bothersome. The biscuits are a meal in themselves. Can't say enough nice things about Stampede 66. We'll be back there soon!

    Maybe we went into Stampede 66 with too high of expectations. The comfort food was good but not great. Maybe that's the food's fault or maybe that's the restaurant's fault. We enjoyed our meal but it just didn't feel like $200 worth of food when we walked out. We are huge Stephen Pyle fans and have enjoyed superior meals at Stephen Pyles as well as Star Canyon back in the day. We ordered all of the taco options for appetizers and really enjoyed all of them but again I have had some really good innovative tacos out of a food truck that I paid $3 for. We all ordered different entrees and all pretty much felt that the food was good but certainly not a dish I would be talking about the next day. Our server did do a nice job at our table.

    We were in town for a conference and selected the restaurant based on the reviews on Open Table. It was so much fun! We had a great meal in a vibrant restaurant. Our server was very good, too. They had just released their new cocktail list. My friend loved the sangria and I loved the "Lasso".

    This was a great choice restaurant for a group of us to say goodbye to someone leaving Dallas! It was memorable, it was out of the box as far as so many amazing food choices! Every bite was shared with the group. Highly recommend the honey fried chicken and the butterscotch pudding. Our server was amazing and took care of every detail at the table. This was my 4th time to stampede 66 and I always recommended it as a favorite. Thanks for making Dallas proud!

He let us enjoy the experience and when things went a bit awry he absolutely made it up to us. Really great place to take out of town guests.

    Dined on 10/3/2014
    The food is absolutely heavenly, great spins on southern cuisine that bring the sophisticated and down-home aesthetic together in wonderful ways. The breads (cornbread, Shiner Bock), jams, pickles are all elegantly homey. The appetizers are individual stand-outs, especially crawfish beignets. Love the spin on chicken-fried steak. I visit once or twice a year when traveling from NYC and it's one of my "must hit" places! The surroundings, the ambiance, the decor, the music, the decor all evoke a childhood in the south with a sophisticated twist. Could not rave more about it! But I'd try! :)

    I chose this restaurant to celebrate my five year anniversary with our company. We walked in the door and was greeted by a sour hostess, who looked at her watch causing us to look at ours. Our reservation was for noon and we entered at 11:50 am. Our server was confrontational (kept asking "what") when being spoken to. Our server was not helpful regarding the menu and she hovered over us, which did not give us the opportunity to simply talk amongst ourselves or to try and make the most of the eating the experience. Needless to say, this will be a memorable lunch for the wrong reasons. As the Administrative Professional for our office, I maintain a list of restaurants that are within walking to our downtown office. So disappointed.

    This place looked like it was trying to duplicate a true Texas honky tonk. Tourists probably think this would be great as the restaurant tries to entertain with "Texas-looking stuff." Being from Texas, our expectations of the food were what we can eat elsewhere locally and at home. The fancy margarita was made strickly for show and not for taste. The potato salad was not only awful, it was warm. The brisket was good, but I can make better. The service on a Sunday night was slow. The best part of the restaurant was the live music.

    We picked Stampede 66 because we had heard of it'd legendary owner, Chef Stephan Pyles. Once we arrived our group of 9 was seated and we enjoyed the music of Dave Alexander. We then ordered dinner, "Sunday Supper" was available that evening. What a great combination of foods. It ALL was very tasty and the service was excellent. Then desert came, and surprise it said "Happy Anniversary!". Our meal and celebration were complete. We highly reccomend Stampede 66 to anyone. Celebrating Anything! It Was A Treat!

    Dined on 9/25/2014
    REALLY not worth the time or the money!! Between 4 of us we had; 3 entrees, 4 apps, and 2 desserts. The only good thing we ate was the seasonal berry cobbler. The other dessert, peach pie was uneatable. The crust was so hard you need a steak knife to cut into the darn thing and on top of the the peaches were hard as rocks. The main courses were bland & were not even on a par with diner food. My fried chicken was ok but I have had better fried chicken off of catering trucks. The Hells eggs were indeed hellish. If you have money to burn by all means eat here. Choices for excellent food in this city abound & for an out-of-towner to eat here thinking this is prime example of Dallas at its best? Lord have mercy, we are in big culinary trouble.

    Went for a lunch with a special friend. Ordered the Caesar salad plus shrimp and my guest ordered ceasar with chicken. Both salads were extremely average, yet very expensive. $19.00 and $18.00 respectively. There was no toast, crackers or anything extra provided. The server was difficult to understand and a back up person kept putting oversized plates on our table. We shared the butterscotch pudding and it was fabulous yet they insisted on putting two large plates in front us to use. Very strange. Also very confused over this tiny pot of water that was added to my iced tea. This has historically been one of my favorite spots due to the sheer look and vibe of the place. I probably won't go back.

    I love recommending Stampede 66 to friends, family and strangers. Out-of-towners are my favorite types to take here as it's over-the-top Texan but still so damn good nobody could possibly complain about all the kitch. Best part is you can do a cheap lunch made up of incredible $4 tacos or a blow-out dinner with clients or friends. Either way it'll be a great experience.

    After receiving a gift card to Stampede 66 we were finally able to make reservations 2 weeks in advance. Constantly changing wall images and quotes of famous Texans in the dark, warm tasteful atmosphere kept us entertained while being served by very attentive staff. We were surprised at the menu which appeared unusual and limited, however, upon closer study and some questions to our waiter, we discovered many options to include with our entree. We chose small plates of specialty tacos (other appetizers available) plus the option to split a field greens salad w/figs, to make our dining experience varied and fun! The redfish, fried pickled okra, and chicken-fried buffalo steak were all fantastic. We loved the inclusion of TX wines. Thumbs up!

    I was in the F&B industry for 25 years. I love good food. I dined with a fellow foodie. We were both very unimpressed. Food was bland and over-priced. Flavor combinations were odd. Peaches in dessert were hard and flavorless. BBQ sauce was overwhelmingly smoky. Restaurant was incredibly loud. Potato salad flavors were overwhelming and odd combination. Biscuits were hard. Chicken was incredibly moist but bland.

We had crawfish beignets with dipping sauce, chicken fried steak with chorizo gravy, mashed potatoes, and fresh pea salad, Texas hamburger with made-in-house bun, a carnitas and a beef brisket tacos, the best flavored iced tea, and butterscotch pudding with salted caramel. All were delicious. Wait staff was superb and manager Sean delightful. Everyone enjoyed the décor and comfortable Texas ambiance. This is my second visit in 2 weeks. I'll be back!

    Stampede 66 was a fun dining experience! First, the look of the place is pretty cool, kind of modern Texas cowboy. Second, the service and the food were also great! I would agree with other people that the food is a bit on the pricey side, but for a special occasion (my sister's 30th birthday), I believe it's worth it. We enjoyed our meal and our time here!
