The Cowboys didn’t make the playoffs, but you can watch the postseason and commiserate with friends at an old Lower Greenville favorite now open in Lake Highlands.
“At the old place, we had 3,400 square feet, and people sometimes had to wait to get in,” Barbara said. “Here, we have 5,600 feet and capacity for 235 people.”
Barbara said he hopes to bring loyal customers from the East Dallas location and attract new followers from Lake Highlands.
Yogi’s has 36 TVs viewable from every spot in the house, including all 45 seats at the bar. He wants to recreate 504’s community hangout feel with shuffleboard, darts, pool, poker, live music, trivia night, movie night and more.
Of course, with so many things to do, you’ll get hungry.
“Oh man, our food is excellent,” Barbara said. “Head chef Abraham Mendoza is pumping out top-of-the-line appetizers, and our Buffalo wings are the best in Dallas. We’ve added some new entrees like enchiladas and flautas, and we have our signature street tacos. No one has better Mexican food than we do. Plus, we have fish, vegan and gluten-free for people eating healthy. Our menu will be attractive whether you’re bringing your girlfriend or wife, or you’re coming for hours to watch all the games.”

In addition to tables and the bar, patio seating accommodates 24 people for mild weather days and Sundays when you just can’t bear to watch the Patriots win again.
Yogi’s is family friendly and welcomes an after-church crowd and postgame youth teams, but the vibe changes to adults only about 7 p.m. each night. The sports bar opens at 10 a.m. seven days a week and closes at midnight on weekdays and 2 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.
