Remedy is the Cherry on Top of Lower Greenville

Dallas’ popular Lower Greenville area is known for harboring some of the city’s best restaurants and bars. Remedy, one of the area’s newest additions, is no exception. It fits in perfectly among the other eclectic eateries that line Greenville Avenue, but has a style and menu that make it completely unique. Inspired by all things classic, Remedy offers a vintage vibe from the moment you first spot it; a bright neon sign sets it apart from the neighboring restaurants and beckons hungry customers to come visit. Inside, the décor is sleek and stylish, but peppered with accents that hint at the restaurant’s old-school inspiration; cushy upholstered booths mimic diner-style seating, while a full-length soda fountain offers drinks made the old-fashioned way.

High ceilings, upholstered booths, and a soda bar blend vintage style with modern elegance.

Remedy takes pride in their drinks, and they’re definitely worth trying. Their menu features everything from wine and beer to cocktails to ice-cream-laden floats, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy. If you’re looking for something non-alcoholic, try one of their signature sodas: the Texas Grapefruit is particularly delicious, with just the right amount of tart sweetness. As far as boozy drinks go, The Better Lemon – a mix of Meyer lemon syrup, gin, and champagne – is one of their more popular cocktails thanks to its refreshing tartness. If you prefer a sweet or rich cocktail, try the RXPX, which combines the flavors of sherry, cherry, and vanilla ice cream.

The Better Lemon is a tart, refreshing, citrus-based cocktail.

The menu at Remedy boasts a variety of dishes inspired by Southern staples. The list of appetizers features comfort food favorites like Pimento cheese and Deviled Eggs, all with an updated flair. We recommend the Summer Sausage, which is served with buttered toast and tangy green tomato chow chow, a pickled relish made the Texas way.

When it comes time to choose a main course, it can be difficult picking just one dish from Remedy’s assortment of tasty offerings. If you’re in the mood for something simple, try their Fried Bologna Sandwich, an old-school treat featuring house-made fried bologna topped with American cheese, mayo, and sweet onion. If you’re a burger aficionado, their Cheeseburger is also worth trying, especially when served on their signature griddled challah bread. Or go for a classic and order their buttery Grilled Cheese with a side of Tomato Soup. Gluten-free diners, fear not: Remedy also offers gluten-free buns so that their sandwiches can be enjoyed by those with food allergies.

The Fried Bologna Sandwich may not be the healthiest choice, but it's definitely delicious. 

With the entrees at Remedy, it’s about quality, not quantity. Though their menu does change, they typically offer 5-6 entrées, and all are equally mouthwatering. We suggest you go with a Southern staple and order the Texas Shrimp and Grits. Although the dish may sound simple, the way the sautéed shrimp pairs perfectly with the flavor of Remedy’s bacon-cheddar grits and marinated tomatoes will have your mouth jumping for joy.

Remedy's version of Shrimp and Grits adds a savory update to a classic dish. 

Be sure to save room for dessert, because it’s the main attraction at Remedy. They serve a variety of rotating pies unlike anything your grandma ever baked. Because they change, it’s hard to know which are being served until you get there, but if you can catch either of the Coconut Cream or Banana Puddin’ pies in rotation, you won’t regret it. Their sundaes are just as inventive as their pies, and feature unique flavor combinations that come together in surprising ways. The Bob is one of their more popular selections, and for good reason – it brings dark chocolate ice cream, salted caramel, and potato chips together to create the perfect harmony of salty and sweet deliciousness. Although they’re not available yet, shakes and malts are on their way at Remedy, and most of their sodas can be transformed into a float using any ice cream flavor of your choosing.

The Bob is a signature sundae with an inventive twist. 

Although it hasn’t been around long, Remedy is already making a name for itself, so it’s best to call ahead for a reservation if possible. It gets busiest on weekends, so aim for a weeknight if you’re looking to beat the crowd. Or snag a seat at the bar and enjoy your meal – and treats – the old-fashioned way.
