If You Dare: McSwiggan's is the Place to Eat with Pats Fans Sunday. As for the Other Guys ...

If you are a human and you live in Dallas, chances are relatively high that you don't give a fuck about the Super Bowl. If you do, you're either a Pats fan with an affinity for Jameson and clams or a Coughlin apologist with pizza-flavored blood. Either way, you can get drunk for cheap and eat food with your east coast brethren this week in Jerryland.

Hardcore Patriots fans have found each other in DFW and have been known to convene and probably say "wicked" and "beans" a bunch of times at McSwiggan's Irish Pub in The Colony, which appears to be the Metroplex's biggest Belichick backer bar. We've begged Scott to go there and are secretly hoping he gets beat up by a guy in a Julian Edelman jersey.

Based on their Facebook page, you can also hang out with people in that photo above. Dudebros!

Irish pubs closer to Dallas' core are also a safe bet should you be seeking other chowdaheads. Black Friar and The Idle Rich Pub have buckets of Sam Adams ready but also will be serving Brooklyn IPA, so there's that.

Transplant Giants fans around Dallas are invading Buffalo Joe's (3636 Frankford Rd) to watch the big game and bask in the glow of each other's New Yorkness. Local group Big Blue DFW has marked their territory here, which may or may not include actual urine. Buffalo Joe's is a New York-friendly place and offers straight up bar food.

Anyway, you will likely be hard-pressed to find a true Giants-friendly destination due to the palpable hatred between Cowboys and Giants fans in Big D. Frankie's Sports Bar and Grill (3227 McKinney) is serving up huge hot dogs with and $4 Manhattans for Giants fans, but also catering to Pats fans with Clam Chowder (in a bread bowl!) and $4 Boston Tea party shots. If you just don't care, the Press Box Grill (1623 Main St.) has a 112-inch screen. So there's that.

Whatever team you choose to hate less, Dallas will surely be able to satiate your itchin' for all things East Coast. But you may have to go north of LBJ to get your fix.

Go Pats! McSwiggan's is a pretty small place so I expect it to be overcrowded this Sunday

Why the f+ck would I go to that toilet called The Colony for a watching party?  Talk about out of the way.  Amazing, when I used to walk around with my Pat's gear in the late 90''s, I was the only one within a thousand miles with said gear-NOW?  No pretenders. Boston rules!  

Patriots win 31-17; becoming a classic sports dynasty.

Thanks for breaking down that top 10 for us Kergo, for a second there i was wondering what your opinion was on the matter. I myself, being from Boston, like Swiggins, Great food, Great people (alot of the regulars are from the New England area) and its a small taste of home without driving across the country to go to your top ten spots. But thank you again for your stats, i look forward to your next statistical masterpiece about another place you've never been too.

I'm the girl in the middle of the pic, not the plastic one, that's Dirty :).  I'm from Gloucester and most of the people at McSwiggan's on Sundays are from the NE area.  A nightmare for waitstaff but they do a great job!  Definitely worth the drive up north to that "toilet" that is The Colony.  Try it sometime.  Its a lot classier than a lot of the places I've been to in Dallas. The chowder and lobster roll taste like they do at home.  No pretenders.  We give them shirley temples TO GO.
