Mercy Bar & Lounge

It’s not hard to find a glass of wine - it’s listed on just about every dinner menu in the city. And for that we are grateful, because wine pairs well with … well, everything!

On the days when you want to drink something good - ummm, like every day - and maybe a little interesting, you’ll want to find a place that puts time and effort

Uniquely Irving: Mr Max Izakaya Restaurant

Tuesday, February 8, 2022 2:00 PM by Kristina Rowe

Mr. Max Izakaya Restaurant at 3028 N. Belt Line Road is such a legend in Irving. It’s hard to know where to begin when describing it, except that it’s one of the top places in all of North Texas for authentic Japanese food. It’s the only Irving restaurant that was mentioned in Thrillist’s shoutout to The 18 Best Restaurants in the Dallas Suburbs. While I think they overlooked a number of Irving restaurants that deserve a place on this list, they’re definitely not wrong about Mr. Max.
