This is a great hole in the wall BBQ place, with the best BBQ in Dallas. Sonny Bryan has multiple locations around town, but this is the best location. The rib dinner is to die for.

There are lots of Sonny's this is the best one. (On Inwood) Feels like you're being served out of an old house. BBQ is amazing, staff is fast and friendly!

Hole in the walls have THE best food. Open 24 hours we went around midnight and could smell the food and see the smoke before we got out of the car. Its a hole in the wall with classroom seating but the food makes up for its lack of aesthetics. The smoked jalapeno sausage was excellent, the ribs were excellent... More

Recommended by both our hotel van driiver and a friend who is a local. This is the original building for this place. Very unique and old Texas. In one building you order and eat in another building surrounded with garage doors contaning wooden tables. They opened a coupke of doors and the breeze was quite pleasant. Very conducive to larger... More

The original Sonny Bryan's smokehouse! Traditional place in Dallas, with great Texas BBQ and good draft beer.

It was a dark and foggy night in Dallas. Seven of us had just flown in from faraway cities; not only were we hungry, but our arms were killing us! (Ba-dump-ching!) The van driver at our hotel saw us milling around the lobby, trying to figure out where to eat, and asked if we liked barbeque…‘cause, if we did, he... More

First, there are two locations of Sonny Bryan's in Texas. This on is open 24/7, and I believe is the "original" one. The food and service are outstanding. The Brisket was amazing, so was the pulled-pork. The Apple-Cobbler dessert was also very good. The smoky flavor of the meat and the homemade BBQ sauces were perfect. You won't regret going... More

This is exactly the type of place I love. The outside looks run down, and when you walk in, it is by no means fancy. What you do get is amazing Texas BBQ. The onion rings are massive and very tasty. The brisket is cooked just right and does not even need sauce, but the hone made sauce is pretty... More

I have been going here for YEARS!!!!! Probably close to 50. I am finally done. The last 4 visits the BBQ was flavor less and dry. What happened ? On each of the last 4 visits I kept thinking they were having an off day.... I don't think thats the case.
