Thinking About Filing A Dram Shop Lawsuit Against Mustang Sally's? Here's What You Should Know

When you're the managing partner of the firm that's sued more bars for negligent alcohol service than anyone else in Texas, you can't help becoming aware just how widespread the problem of over-service is in our state. But along with that knowledge comes the corresponding awareness that the average person doesn't have anything close to the same level of understanding. To try to rectify this deficit, I occasionally look through the public records of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission and report my findings. If you believe you may have a potential dram shop case, I encourage you to give us a call at (855) 326-0000.


Mustang Sally's is a bar and billiards hall that is popular in San Antonio, TX offering good service for good prices. Unfortunately, they've also been the subject of numerous allegations of unruly patrons getting into physical altercations and allowing staff to sell alcohol while they themselves are intoxicated.

Simply because a Mustang Sally's 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.
