Jack Ruby’s Saloon Opens Soon in Downtown Dallas Close to Dealey Plaza


The West End in Dallas is the new home for a John F. Kennedy-themed restaurant and saloon named Jack Ruby’s Saloon, located at 1710 N. Record Street, #110. It is a stones-throw from The Sixth Floor Museum and Dealey Plaza, so it’s convenient if these Dallas historical sites land on the schedule.

The area is a perfect place for a restaurant like this as the building and architecture is from the late 1800s-early 1900s era, so it fits well with the John F. Kennedy spirit and theme. The Sixth Floor Museum hosts more than 350,000 people per year.

The history-filled restaurant is owned by Joe Groves who also owns Ellen’s, the all-day restaurant he opened in the West End in 2012. Jack Ruby will showcase a big event on New Year’s Eve and then the brand-new place will be open for lunch and dinner, with live entertainment, primarily country music, every night. Groves wanted to create a place where people could relax and listen to country music, especially in downtown Dallas.

In addition, Jack Ruby’s will host comedy one night per week, plus an amateur night, with a house band.

Hungry guests will find Texan pub-style food like burgers, hot dogs, chicken wings, pimento cheese, Frito chili pie, loaded queso, a fried bologna sandwich, and JR’s nachos. Special items include Texas chowda, brisket bites, and lobster ravioli.

Guests can also buy a funny T-shirt with this text: I took a shot at Jack Ruby’s.
