The Beginning…

Early 80s…Two successful business-types from the airline industry, Bob and Scott, decided there weren’t any great local spots around Dallas to hang out for busy guys like themselves. All they wanted was a place they could have a nice meal, a well-made drink and be around some cool people at the same time. Being the assertive gentlemen they were, they simply decided to make one. The idea that started Blue Goose Cantina was born and one of building blocks of the Dallas restaurant scene was created.
On a business trip through Central America Bob and Scott stumbled upon a delightfully seedy “adult establishment” called El Ganso Azul (The Blue Goose in Spanish) that was selling a large bundle of chairs for dirt cheap. They happened to be in need of some chairs for their, at this time, nameless concept so they bought the chairs for their new venture and found the name of their restaurant. The Blue Goose Cantina. In December of 1984 this dream was realized when they first opened their doors on historic Lower Greenville Avenue.

Who we are…

The foundation of our company was built from day 1 on the idea that great handmade food, quality drinks, top-notch service, fun atmosphere and kick-ass attitude could all be done at the same time and you shouldn’t have to sacrifice one for the other. Since Greenville Avenue this successful tradition has carried on with locations in Addison, Plano, Highland Village, Frisco, McKinney and Grapevine.

Our food…

Our guys get to work at 7am every day to chop fresh vegetables, marinate top grade meat, craft handmade sauces and stuff our famous tamales. We only use the best local mesquite wood on our grills and search the country for the best meat and vegetables around to put on our tables.
