5 Gourmet Sandwiches to Sink Your Teeth Into

State & Allen

Looking for an easy lunch? 

Maybe you want a light dinner?

No, we aren’t talking about the classic pb&j your mom sent you for lunch in 5th grade. 

 We’re talking gourmet, filling, and mouthwatering sandwiches you’ll crave long after the last bite. Here are 5 delicious Dallas sandwiches to sink your teeth into at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar:


1.   Italia Grilled Cheese Sandwich


Ooey gooey grilled cheese gets a makeover and you’re gonna love it! We start with rustic white bread, then load it with fresh mozzarella cheese, spinach, artichoke, tomato, and basil, then grill it up to golden perfection. It’s so good and pairs really well with our venison and Wagyu chili. 


2.   Crispy Pork Belly Cuban Sandwich


Our State & Allen Cuban sandwich is a spectacular twist on the original ham and cheese favorite. Our sandwich features house pickled jalapenos, ham, pickles, swiss cheese, and our house State & Allen mustard. 


3.   Baja Chicken Sandwich


We start with a challah bun, then load it up with tender chicken breast, avocado, corn pico, pepper jack, and our cholula mayo. This fresh flavor combo will have you wishing for warmer weather and days by the pool!


4.   Blackened Fish Sandwich


We could all benefit from adding a little more fish to our diet; why not do it with our blackened fish sandwich?! Flaky white fish, slaw, and a red tartar sauce, all on a challah fun makes this sandwich perfection. Also try it as tacos! 


5.   Curry Chicken Salad Pita


Our curried chicken salad is like nothing you’ve had before, loaded with grapes, toasted pistachios, red bell peppers, spinach, and of course, curry chicken. Pair it with one of our handcrafted cocktails or a craft beer straight from the tap.

Gourmet Pizza – Half Off!

 And these aren’t just your run-of-the-mill pizzas either. Each pizza is made-to-order from scratch with the highest quality ingredients. Case and point: all of the tomatoes used in our sauce and in our pizzas are local Texas tomatoes. You’ll love the unique flavor combos that mix traditional toppings with some you wouldn’t have thought of. Need a gluten free crust? We can make it! 


What Types of Pizza Can I Get at State & Allen?

Try the Sausage & Wild Arugula topped with fresh Texas tomatoes (all of our tomatoes are from Texas), shaved manchego cheese, sausage, and wild arugula. Or maybe you’d like The Tony, stacked high with chicken, spinach, goat cheese, Kalamata olives, garlic oil, and the unlikely pickled jalapenos. Order off the Dallas gourmet pizza menu – or opt to make your own with your favorite toppings. And here’s an insider tip: before ordering, always ask the server if there are any chef specials on pizza that day! He’s been known to whip up some delicious off-menu options as well.

Whether you are enjoying lunch or dinner with us or just wandered in for drinks and apps, the State & Allen appetizer menu will not disappoint. Freshly made with gourmet ingredients, there is something for everyone on the menu.


Tried & True Favorites

Not feeling adventurous? That’s okay – because State & Allen has some delicious mainstays. Our State & Allen Chicken Strips were recently named among the best chicken strips in Uptown Dallas by Best Food Feed Dallas, noted for their signature herb and spice coating and amazing dipping sauces (cilantro ranch anyone?!). Another favorite: the Triple Dip. Our Triple Dip is hummus, spinach artichoke dip, and tomato feta salsa all served with warm pitas and tortilla chips.  And of course, you can’t go wrong with Crispy Fried Calamari served with cilantro ranch and chili sauce either.



Want a variety of small bites? Go for our Cheese Board or Charcuterie Board. Both pair well with any of the wines on our extensive Dallas wine list,  and are overflowing with gourmet cheeses, artisanal cured meats, bacon onion jam, gherkins, marcona almonds, pickled berries, and more.


What’s New?

State & Allen is always coming up with new ways to prove we’re committed to being the best restaurant in Uptown, and the appetizer menu is no exception. We love adding new things, such as the brand new Brick Oven Crab Dip, served with herbed crackers and tortilla chips. YUM! Also new, the Korean Duck Shumai is a form of dumpling served with pickled veggies and gochujang orange sauce.


Ready to dig in? Our Dallas appetizers are the perfect accompaniment to Happy Hour, lunch, dinner, or late night drinks. In fact, you can even make a light meal out of the S&A Chicken Strips! Visit us this week and we’ll save you a seat on the patio!

It's No Trick - State & Allen Treats you to FREE Parking in Uptown!

State & Allen

It’s the season for tricks and treats, and State & Allen wants to remind you of one of our best treats: FREE PARKING!


How does it work?


We know it can be crazy to find a parking spot in Uptown Dallas - beyond crazy on the weekends! At State & Allen, you are in luck because we have reserved spots for our guests in the parking garage adjacent to the restaurant. To access the garage, get on State St. or Allen St. and then look for the Post Heights apartments’ garage. The entrance should be on your right. It’s completely free, it’s covered, and it’s just a short walk over to our Dallas restaurant and bar for cocktails, a farm to table dinner, or brunch on the patio.


Is it always free?


Yes, parking is ALWAYS free – weekdays, weekends, and evenings. We have 45 spots reserved in the garage and you are welcome there for as long as you like! No valeting or guesswork involved in figuring out where to park.


Is there a time limit on parking?


You are welcome to stay as long as you like! However, if you are staying longer than 3 hours, please let our staff know. It’s not an issue, but we need to make sure the management at the garage knows you are still at our restaurant and doesn’t mistakenly tow you. No matter how long you park, it’s always free.


We are proud to offer this complimentary service to our guests and would love for you to take advantage and spend Halloween weekend with us at State & Allen! Enjoy free parking, drink specials, appetizers, craft beer, gourmet entrees, and a spooktacularly good time! Be sure to make reservations, and we look forward to seeing you at our neighborhood restaurant and bar.
