Best Dive Bar

1. Oak Hills Tavern
7920 Fredericksburg, (210) 614-8855

Possibly the only dive bar on the planet to offer duck confit on its in-house menu, Oak Hills surprises in other ways as well. For instance, while a scruffy cast of regulars call Oak Hills’ home, so too does DJ Mighty Iris, who hosts her Femme Fatale Friday with a mix of welcome throwback tunes from the ‘80s and ‘90s. The beer selection goes beyond Buds and Millers to include a variety of Texas brews on draft and in bottles, and among the liquors are several by Texas distillers like Cinco, Enchanted Rock, Tito’s and Source of All Happiness. But if that’s all too freaky for you, don’t worry, at its most basic, Oak Hills delivers cheap drinks and a friendly atmosphere, which is sometimes all you need.
