Worthy bbq

Visiting for work and a co-worker suggested coming here for dinner mid-week. I had the baby-back ribs with cole slaw ans sweet potato tots...excellent. They have great made-to-order fried pies for dessert; had the cherry a la mode and loved it. Not fancy, but a good choice.

Service was friendly and efficient, food was good but not spectacular. We had baby back ribs to share, my wife had the BBQ and beans and I had the Hoppin John & Pulled Pork. I tried the fried cherry pie and ice cream for dessert, which was poor. All dishes were pretty average in quality. Maybe we picked the wrong... More

This place was recommended by our hotel shuttle driver and we were thrilled with the food! My husband had the baby back ribs, and they were the leanest, meatiest ribs he's ever had. I had the burnt ends, which were tender and incredible. The prices are astonishingly low for the quality and quantity.

The service was in true southern hospitality. The place looks like a little hole in the wall, kind of drab actually. But by God, the food was excellent. And very reasonable prices as well. And the fried pie was just too good.

Don't let the low key exterior fool you...go on in and enjoy OUTSTANDING BBQ! I always struggle between the brisket and the pork sandwich. Sometimes I'll come back twice to satisfy my BBQ cravings!

Located in the Park Cities across from the SMU Law School, Peggy Sue is known for its delicious and tender BBQ and awesome onion rings. I've been dining here on and off for over 30 years (I now live out of town) and enjoy returning every chance I get.

I ordered the pulled fatty beef steak and chicken combo plate. It was the first meal I have finished clean in Dallas, and I am not a big eater! The ambiance was homey, great for get togethers. Loved the food and everything about this barbeque place!

If I could, I'd add an additional 1/2 star (3 1/2). Peggy Sue BBQ is an unassuming little restaurant in the University Park area of Dallas, near the SMU campus. Walking into the restaurant on a Monday night, we were greeted and seated in a booth immediately. It seemed like the place had been there for years, and was decorated... More

Was referred to this place while in Dallas after visiting the George Bush Museum. Right off the campus of SMU, great neighborhood. Food was fantastic. Had the smoked brisket with pulled pork, beans and fried okra for the sides with a fried cherry pie for dessert. Excellent food, would eat there again if/when in the area.

Ate here when it was Howard and Peggy's and glad to see the place reopened and going strong. Was visiting from east of the Mississippi and was hungry for good brisket and Peggy Sue's delivered. A nice spicy sauce top it off. Good job!
