Stackhouse Burgers has great burgers, cheap beer and a skyline view. There's nothing else you need to know.

The Blackfriar: Remember that chicken sandwich I picked on? It happens to be served on one of McKinney Avenue's best patios. The front porch of this house-turned-bar spills out onto a large deck made for drinking. Outdoor televisions keep you entertained if your date sucks.

The Mansion at Turtle Creek, Back Patio: The only thing that's missing is a perfect Dallas skyline, but two big fireplaces, a canopy of trees dotted with lanterns, and lots of space make for a polished evening session.

Nice patio at Princi Italia in Preston Royal, some of the best pizza in town.

No Rustic? Their service is impressively slow, but patio + live music is hard to beat.

Katy Trail Ice House: "Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded."

Best nachos in Dallas are the chicken nachos at Gloria's, very strong margaritas too.

Another worthy patio (with a basketball hoop even) is the Grapevine Bar.

There's never any love for the beautiful patios without alcohol for sale. We are BYOB at least. Beautiful and cost-efficient!

Lee Harvey's > Katy Trail Ice House (less douche to person ratio)

Stackhouse is my new favorite on the list, although I haven't been to all of them.

Yeah, I was going to ask for a "best patios when factoring in low douchiness factor" list.

@Mervis_Earl I'm too self-absorbed to notice the level of douchiness.

I'm just saying, but the Dallas Douchebag, tight shirt, "brah" flingin', rented Beemer, UFC, take the shirt off and fight crowd loves a patio; best to drink in the woods, where DB ratio is nearly nonexistent.
