If you ask anybody that has lived in Dallas over 20 years where the best BBQ is they will tell you Sonny Bryans. Texas BBQ really does not get any better than this, all the traditional meats like Sausage, Brisket and Ribs......especially the Ribs! Strongly...More

Dont really have anything overwhelmingly positive or negative to say about this spot. I got a platter that had every single meat on it, and not one of them was very good. Lacking in strong flavor and somewhat dry and boring. The bread was incredible,...More

Went there under a recommendation. There was no Brisket. Instead they had sliced beef that had not been smoked. The chicken was ok but not smoked either. Sausage had no favor. Will not go back.

OK, so I was told more than once that the best barbecue is found in Fort Worth, not Dallas, but I just didn’t want to drive all the way to FW just for BBQ. I did some research and picked the next best thing, one...More

Stopped by this place after work. The food preparation area was in desperate need of cleaning not to mention the floors. Had second thought about ordering but did so anyway. Food was pretty good - didn't get sick over it. But probably will never go...More
