We had a family event with 15 adults to feed. Called in 4lbs of brisket, 2lbs sausage, 2lbs turkey, quarts each of coleslaw, beans and 4 orders of fried okra. Plenty of sauce, onions, pickles, peppers and a load of Texas Toast. It was ready when I got there to pick up and bring back to the house. I got... More

Great smoked Brisket, Great Ribs. Fresh Potato salad and coleslaw. Typical Texas Brisket with good flavor. Relative of Bryans BBQ in Dallas but I think the sides are better - probably the best potato salad I've ever had at a BBQ joint. Always good food at reasonable prices. The servings are huge and the chopped BBQ sandwich is the best... More

Took my 9 yo son there for Texas BBQ as he has only had California BBQ before. (Plenty of it) As we walked in, we knew we found the right place. As he ate his 3 meat plate (ribs, beef and ham), he said "Whatever I called barbecue before wasn't barbecue!" I (vegetarian) enjoyed the cole slaw, fried okra, onion... More

Eat here often. Big portions and prompt service. The beans are one of the best side dishes around. All the meat choices are good and large portions.

I would have given it 5 stars had they not run out of ribs on my first visit. Seriously--- how do you run out of ribs?It wasn't even a weekend. This is a good BBQ place----not as good as Tortuga BBQ, but still very tasty food. I suppose you should be a local--- or like me, hang with a local... More

We got the beef brisket and ribs. Ribs were dry. Brisket had a good smokey flavor.... But almost half of my portion went in the trash because it was nothing but fat. The beans were ok.... Kinda like pinto beans.... Didn't care for the coleslaw.... Tasted kinda old and limp. Wouldn't go back.

I ate BBQ 3 days this week in FortWorth, Riscky's which I love for their "all you can eat l" beef ribs, excellent... Railhead for Chicken Tuesday, excellent and David's (actually in Arlington/Pantego) for beef plate. I understand it was originally a Red Bryan's and hence, also excellent. Large amount of nicely smoked brisket on the plate, and you fill... More

Old Family business. Probably the # 1 BBq in Arlington. I know it has the best potato salad. The original BBq was called Red Byants and was located on Collins where the new Cowboy Stadium stands. Family works in the restaurant which means a very friendly place. Has a lot of regulars.

Trip advisor rated this restaurant #20 in Dallas. They were right. Throughout our party of 6 we ended up trying everything. There wasnt anything we didnt like. Close to Six Flags and the Cowboys stadium. Go!!!!
