Cowboys Dancehalls in San Antonio has a TABC and DWI Problem

The Cowboys Dancehall brands of Western honky-tonk bars have been very popular in the San Antonio and Dallas areas for a long time. But, with their popularity, has come a slew of alcohol related accidents that occur either at one of their bars, or, such as a dram shop case, occur because of irresponsible alcohol service. According to a recent news article, from 2012 to present, almost 550 DWIs in the San Antonio area were the result of a night out at the Cowboy Dancehall at 3030 Loop 410 Northeast.

Simply because a Cowboys Dancehall location was investigated, it does not mean that they are a location that displays a pattern of violating TABC code. Conversely, if a location has been investigated and investigators determine that they are not in violation of TABC code, that does not mean that the alleged violation did not take place. At times, sufficient evidence required to prove that either criminal or administrative violations occurred is hard to come by. We are simply reporting the locations that were put on the TABC's radar for one reason or another by concerned citizens and law enforcement agencies.
