When It Doesn’t Have to Be Gourmet.

State & Allen

flaky fish and chips state and allen kitchen bar

At State & Allen, we love gourmet food. We do. And our menu reflects it. Our chefs take great care in creating a menu that delights the senses and leaves you satisfied.


But what if you’re in the mood for something a little bit more basic? State & Allen has you covered there too!


Basic Doesn’t Mean Low Quality.

When we say basic, we don’t mean “low quality.” We pride ourselves on only serving the highest quality menu items, but sometimes we do it with less fuss. Simple ingredients and simple cooking methods result in delicious food you can’t get enough of.


Simple Food. Delicious Results.

So what are some of these “less gourmet” food items we speak of?! Here are a few customer favorites you are sure to love too!


Beer Battered Fish & Chips

Who doesn’t love the flaky goodness of fish and chips? Ours our made with a specialty beer batter and fried to perfection. The result? Crispy chicken on the inside and a crunchy, flaky crust on the outside. Better yet – come see us on Friday and you can get these as part of our Friday specials at a discounted price!


State & Allen Chicken Strips 

These are a favorite around here – and for good reason! Our chicken is marinated in-house, rolled in 9 different herbs and spices, then fried. The result is tender, juicy chicken strips you won’t find anywhere else. There are so good we serve them on our regular menu at The Nodding Donkey too! 


Bacon Avocado Burger

Our take on the California burger, this burger has it all! We start with a signature beef patty (made with a combination of beef, veal, and chuck), then add bacon, avocado, and cheddar cheese to the mix. Served on a soft Challah, this burger is pure greatness.


State & Allen Pizza

Sure, we’ve got tons of gourmet options, but if you’re looking for something simple and familiar, we can always whip up a delicious pepperoni or all meat pizza. Pizzas are perfect for late night dining and use only local tomatoes in our homemade sauce for a freshness you can taste.


Ready for dinner? When it doesn’t have to be gourmet, you can still come see us at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar! Serving the best food in Uptown Dallas, along with beer, wine, and handcrafted cocktails.
