Our story

Once upon a time...

In August of 2008, Bryan Thompson & Evan Rupp were in Evan's office at their former employers discussing how displeased they were with their current employment situation and also, their love of football (soccer). They then began talking about how there were no places for real football fans to watch the beautiful game. They were dreaming of starting a pub that was just that. Evan knew his father had always wanted to own a restaurant, so Evan pitched the idea to his father as more of a joke than anything. Two weeks later, Evan received a call from his father asking if they were serious about the idea. They said ABSOLUTELY, and so, The Allen Wickers began.

The Allen Wickers Way

Brian and Evan began looking for spaces and the ideas were aplenty, now they just needed someone with restaurant experience. Enter, Robert Lenore. Robert was the man they needed to take this concept to the next level. They found a space they knew was "The One" and began remodeling to make it their own. In the long run, they want this to be the preeminent place to watch football in the DFW area and also a place where the patrons can feel at home, like they are a part of this too. They will never turn away a football fan wanting to watch the beautiful game and have a cold pint with friends. This is The Allen Wickers way!
