City of Dallas cites Katy Trail Ice House for re-opening

The city of Dallas says it cited the popular Katy Trail Ice House after it re-opened.

The city says the hangout along the Katy Trail in Uptown Dallas is considered a bar and was not allowed to reopen, even under Gov. Greg Abbott’s new guidelines.

The location is considered a bar, according to TABC guidelines, because more than 50 percent of its sales come from alcohol rather than food.

Katy Trail Ice House opened its door for dine-in customers on Friday. After getting the citation, it reverted back on Saturday to curbside to-go orders only. 

A Facebook post says it will reopen for dine-in on May 18.
