The jury is still out on whether or not drinking freshly-pressed juice actually lives up to all of the health claims touted by its enthusiastic proponents, but bottles of squeezed veggies and fruits are undoubtedly a good way to get a quick infusion of nutrients when you’re hungover or have been bingeing on few too many cheeseburgers for just a little too long. While the juice trend has slowed down substantially in the past few years, there are still plenty of spots to satisfy the need for a liquid lunch. Whether you’re in need of a quick nutrient boost — or you're ready to undergo a full-on cleanse — these ten juice bars in and around Dallas are packed full of healthy (and reasonably tasty) options.Read More
Where to Get Your Juice On in Dallas Right Now
A handy guide to the many juice bars of Dallas.
The Gem Juice Bar
Should you find yourself in Highland Park or Preston/Forest in need of nutrients, stop in at The Gem for a colorful boost. The veggies are all organic, and all juice is cold-pressed to preserve as much of the nutrition possible. Here, you’ll find the usual green juice options, along with smoothies, juice shots, soups, vegan lunch options, coffee, and brightly hued beverages like the Super Sapphire and the Ruby Slipper.
Set one foot into this juice bar and you’ll immediately notice a strong smell of fresh produce. One of the pricier cleanses in town, a 6-bottle, 1-day cleanse runs $65 at Buda, but high quality, minimally processed organic ingredients are the reason why. Tired of too sweet or too green juices? Try the Buda Basilato Soup, which is sort of like a mix between a really good gazpacho and freshly-juiced V8.
Local Press + Brew
In addition to the freshly-made almond milk that they’ll kindly swirl into lattes made with locally-roasted coffee, Oak Cliff’s Local Press + Brew offers a variety of pressed juices like apple and orange, along with the traditional juice-cleanse-appropriate greens and beet juices. Try the Winnetka Heights, named for the adjacent neighborhood. It combines apple, ginger, kale, lemon, and pineapple.
The Juice Bar
Here you’ll find fresh takes on classic juices, like the aptly-named Hottie, a carrot-orange blend spiced up with cayenne and ginger. Pro tip: for a somewhat less healthy way to enjoy your fresh-pressed nutrients, mix Pink Cadillac, a grapefruit-mint juice, with a little gin for a hangover-proof take on a classic Salty Dog. The Juice Bar now has four locations in Dallas: inside Northpark Mall, Highland Park Village, Inwood Village and Inwood/Forest.
Every one of the juices bottled at Oak Lawn’s Roots Juices contains more than three pounds of vegetables, which is probably more than most consume all month put together. For a serious commitment, try Roots’ different cleanse packages — ranging from 1 to 5 days — that include six bottles of freshly-made, organic juice per day. Or for a fresh snack, pick up a bottle of Health Nut, a creamy almond milk sweetened with dates and vanilla.
Nekter Juice Bar
For those considering a cleanse, Nekter is an economical way to go full-juice. A one-day cleanse, which consists of six juices, is $45, substantially cheaper than most of the city’s other juice cleanse options. If you don't subscribe to the whole toxin-cleansing mumbojumbo and just want a tasty, healthy beverage, try the Buzz, a tangy combo of orange, carrot, lemon, and ginger.

Tribal All Day Cafe
In Bishop Arts, Tribal All Day Cafe is a cafe and juice bar with roots in the Chickasaw Indian Nation. Co-founder and creative director Hailey Nutt’s juices with names like “Medicine Man” and “Rain Dance” are made with organic fruits and veggies squeezed into every BPA-free bottle. Bonus: Folks with Chickasaw heritage get a family discount.
Austin-based hippy juicery Juiceland has three locations in town: Plano, Lovers & Inwood and Sylvan 30. Cleanses pack six 16-oz bottles into each day, which are larger than most. For a quick pick-me-up, grab a Tree of Life, which combines coconut water with carrot, beet, tumeric, ginger, lime and cayenne.
Grabbagreen Food + Juice
Small chain Grabbagreen focuses on making healthy choices easy for those on the go; perhaps reaching for a green smoothie instead of a Frappuccino, for example. A “Grabbadetox” involves 6 bottles plus 2 elixir shots per day, in “Simple” or “Super” varieties. But whether the goal is to detox or just do a bit better, all juices at Grabbagreen are freshly squeezed.
Manna Juice Bar
What happens when a pharmacist and food scientist get together? Out in Mansfield, a new small juice bar with that pedigree is serving up juices, smoothie bowls, and healthy snacks. A cleanse at Manna means a cleansing juice shot first thing in the morning, then five juices to drink throughout the day followed by the signature Almond Mylk for dinner. And don’t worry if Mansfield is too far; Manna Juice Bar ships cleanses too.
