It’s one of the last “Point” bars in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Midway Point has been open since 1980, and when the original owner wanted to sell it four years ago, Jim and Ellen Latchaw bought it. “I had always been a patron of the Point,” Jim says. “I liked the area and the way it was set up. I could see its potential to be better.” Everything is made from scratch, never frozen or from a can. While the food has stayed the same — in particular the famous Point Burger, which is still the top seller — the atmosphere caters more to sports fans. “We made it into more of sports bar and added TVs,” Ellen says. “We always have sports on somewhere.” But the bar maintains its low-key vibe that attracts customers in their late 30s and older. “We like to keep it quaint.”
