Though the sound quality isn't the greatest for live music, Mid-City is probably my favorite place to hang these days. There's never a cover and it's usually laid back.

My only complaint...karaoke on Friday nights. Okay...karaoke, period.

EDITED: By the way...based on my experiences (only a couple times), the food rocks, too!

This is my default place to go, so I have some opinions on Mid City:

Food is good & served until 3AM - super cool. I recommend the nachos, wraps & big ass salad and the appetizer combo is hella good close to 3AM.

Never a cover - also good.

The beer & drinks could be a little cheaper (couldn't they always, though?)

They lost my credit card on Saturday - that sucked - but I didn't have to pay my tab.

20 cent wings on Sunday - any number/no minimum required - AWESOME.

The cops show up often because the music is too loud and the nearby residents complain. (You think they'd know better - they moved in next to A BAR!?!)

Underagers usually get in on weeknights w/o being ID'ed (you didn't hear that from me)

Parking - kind of sucks on Saturday nights

Stage - needs to be bigger

Sam the Owner - pretty cool guy that's open-minded about booking different genres and trying new things.

The wraps = the good sh*t.

I don't think the prices are bad at all for beer. I rarely drink mixed drinks so I don't know about those...
20 cent wings on Sunday - any number/no minimum required - AWESOME.
Hmmm...now I must try the wings/Taj Maholics combo.

I'm sure the majority of residents have lived their longer than Mid-City has been around. Bill's Bistro, I'd be willing to bet, never got nearly as loud as Mid-City. Regardless...I haven't seen the police in there in ages. I haven't been in a while, either, though. Is it getting bad again?

Welcome to most bars in FW.
Parking - kind of sucks on Saturday nights
The lot is usually packed, yes. BUT...quit being lazy, Julie. Park across the street and walk!
Stage - needs to be bigger
Amen. Along with the dance floor. Fat guys like me need a bigger area to showcase the skills.
Sam the Owner - pretty cool guy that's open-minded about booking different genres and trying new things.
Sam ROCKS. Period.

Thanks for that clarification & commentary, Fleek ;)

Sunday + me + you + 20 cent wings = it's a date.

Yeah, the FWPD has not been in attendance at Mid City shows lately...as a matter of fact, they haven't showed up in a long time. Since the start of the year if I'm not mistaken. Hooray.

Ahhh...good call. All bars should offer draft beer.
