Home cooking done right.

I'm a BBQ snob, so my tastes are picky. Bartley's pork ribs were tender and big (not baby-backs!), but was basted in a sweet, sticky, lightly applied sauce. If you like sweet, you'll LOVE these ribs! Chicken was good, sausage was juicy and just a little spicy. Brisket was a hair on the dry side and not my favorite of... More

I loved this BBQ. I think it's the best BBQ I've ever had. Keep in mind that I'm no expert on BBQ, but I know what tastes good to me. The restaurant is kind of on the cafeteria side but once I put the chopped beef in my mouth, I didn't care. The place is clean and wasn't crowded at... More

I'm not much of a BBQ fan, but as far as BBQ goes, you can't beat Bartley's. They've been around for over 30 years that I know of. They have the best potato salad and the best barbeque around.

We really enjoyed this barbecue which was tender and had good smoky flavor. I got a pecan cobbler ("like pecan pie without the crust," the cashier told me) and my husband and I shared it. It was just as she described it, and very rich.

Drive past Bartleys every day. Ordered a meat platter to go for some friends coming over for the game. The chopped brisket was excellent, and the Mac and cheese was so creamy. Also really like the rolls provided by the bakery next door.

Bartley's came highly recommended in several TX mags and it lived up to expectations. Don't let the whole in the wall look and cafeteria style self serve sides fool you. I loved the ribs and the sausage the best. Both had great flavor and weren't overly smokey. Fried okra and maple flavored beans were delicious. Can't beat the price either.

Always on the prowl for good bbq, Bartley's showed up on a "best in Dallas" list and while it has some merit, it also had some room for improvement. We went in early evening, 5:30, and the meats were good, but all the sides looked dried up and old. The lady offered to cook up some fresh tots, but then... More

I was looking for some good BBQ on a recent business trip and Bartley's came up. It was near the route from the airport, so I thought I'd give it a try. I was not disappointed. Behind that humble strip mall store front is some very good BBQ. I was meet by the wonderful smell of smoke and spice as... More
