Great for big groups but not high quality

Dallas BBQ is perfect for a large group celebrating an event because prices are low, drinks are big, and room is plentiful. The menu options are typical bbq options and are not special or unique. The rotisserie chicken is quite good for a healtheir option...

I ordered the bacon cheeseburger it was so very greasy and tasteless. The french fries were not hot..My friend ordered a bowl of chili.The chili... More

I've been eating at this restaurant for years. Most always get the quarter chicken white meat with either bbq sauce or honey sauce. Comes with your choice of yellow rice, french fries or baked potato. Side of cornbread that's so good it tastes like pound cake. Also they have wonderful drinks, with or without alcohol. Try the virgin pina colada... More

We sat outside in the NYC heatwave and had Texas sized drinks, then Ribs, Steak, Chicken and buckets of fries. A proper USA BBQ pig-out. Loved it. Very cheap too. Was a good experience and the staff were brilliant.

Great pinapple grilled shrimp. And my drink was wonderful. The prices a a good deal as well. There are several locations throughout the city so it's convenient for everyone. I do love meeting up with friends and family here. Even the atmosphere is fun. I love this place.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
