Good barbecue from a local chain. If you come in for a business lunch, please know that you will leave smelling like barbecue.

Vacationing from Michigan I had bbq on my 'to do list.' I contacted a friend who used to live in Dallas and she recommended several good places including Sonny Bryans. Decided to try it after reading mixed reviews. We had a GREAT experience. We got in just before a big rush. It was busy with dine in and carry out..... at 7:30 on a Monday night. Place was clean, staff friendly. Food was out to our table in a short amount of time. I got the rib plate and the ribs were delicious. Bbq beans and cole slaw yummy as well. Wonderful dinner rolls and they came by 3 times to offer more rolls. My boys had 3 meat plates and said all the meats were good. Got the Home Run Derby on the big screen tv. Bonus! I'd be going back if we lived in the southwest. Pecan Logde was highly recommended as well but never made it there.

Close to Parkland hospital and UT Southwest medical center. A wild part of town, very old, they cook at night and serve until it's gone. Cute old school desks to sit and eat or a newer building with tables for groups if you need it, BUT THE BBQ IS TO DIE FOR.

Why not drive 5 min. and experience the real Sonny Bryans on Inwood by the Salvation army. It's the smoke house where it all began? Lovers Lane franchised outlet Standard cafeteria style BBQ line, hard bench type seats, much cleaner , modern and branded outlet of the real Sonny Bryans.

Great Ribs and wings. The portions are big so an app is all you need unless you are really hungry. The Onion rings were a bit burnt but was still good. Highly recommend this restaurant. The wait staff were friendly.
