In a neighborhood known for great restaurants, I can't believe that this place survives. There is nothing about this restaurant that is Texas BBQ. There is no possible way that they have a smoker in that building, I ordered the brisket sandwich and was served some sort of grey processed beef that... read more

The food was ok, but we had to wait a lot to get the microwave food. Yes, microwave because you could see the food was reheated. The place is big and loud. Not impressed

During prime time, you will wait, often outside for a table. Instead, if you live in the 'hood, pick up tghe phone and place your order. Ribs are the best, chicken good tgoo.

Dallas BBQ has been around for a long time. It is dependable and the food is good. Surprising part is the friendly and attentive service. Take-out is good too; delivery containers are superior to other places.

Things I love: Famous Texas crispy wings (probably the best thing on the menu), hot wings, Hennessy wings, sticky chicken tenders, crispy shrimp, BBQ baked beans, Texas style chili, corn bread, yellow rice and the honey basted chicken Things...

I loved this location because it is not as busy as the one in time square. I love BBQ's I prefer going to this one. The service was excellent.

We went there with great expectations after reading so good things at tripadvisor and having so high score,it really was the worst meat I and my family ever had.It's not more than any less than average fast food and you should not expect more from it.

Early bird special is a great deal as is their take out chicken. Great comfort food, not fancy but generous portions. Texas sized frozen drinks are a fun thing to order. Can order non alcoholic for the kids.

Dallas BBQ ribs are always pretty good. Baked potatoes are good size. Food always arrives warm, not hot. Packaging is very good. Can easily reheat in microwave.
