“Tender and juicey!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We were staying in downtown Dallas and wanted to get some real, no frills BBQ. We found it at ‘Off the Bone’ on Lamar street. The place is small, but very clean, and you eat off Styrofoam plates. Don’t expect a Chili’s atmosphere here, which we did not want anyway. The sides are good but we were more concerned with the meat, and these guys did not disappoint! I picked up a rib by the bone and the tender meat literally fell off. We tried the brisket, ribs and chicken. Great smokey flavor on everything. You’re going to need a lot of napkins because the meat is tender and juicy and you’ll be using your fingers, which is just like you are supposed to eat BBQ. The portions are enough that we couldn’t eat it all in one sitting and had some left to take home. Service was a little sporadic, we didn't get all our orders at the same time, I think because they were very busy, but again, we were there for the food, not to be waited on. There was a line the whole time we were visiting, with people waiting for open tables, which says a lot for the good BBQ. Staff was very friendly and courteous.

“Best dallas has to offer?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant came highly rated by several people. We were warned it was off the beaten path, which is an understatement. That wasn't the surprise. Anticipating deliciously smoked meat, we were presented with mediocre meat smothered in BBQ sauce. We thought the great state of Texas could do way better than that.

“Yeowza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Stopped in with some colleagues after work today and found a saucy piece of heaven! I have to say that this is extremely clean for a little bbq place, which I was pretty pleased about! We walked in and started chatting with the men behind the counter. Told them that we are all here on work and had never been before and they gave us each a whole rib to try! Needless to say, many racks were purchased!!! The portions were plentiful, every bite was amazing, and I can't wait to go back!! The sides are phenomenal, as well :) We each tried the others and came to the conclusion that everything was perfection. Carry on, men, carry on :)

“Great ribs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Let me first say that I do not like ribs. Then let me say, I loooooved these ribs. Friendly service. Delicious food. We ordered a ton of food to start with - and then reordered the same amount and ate it all. Can't say it enough - Amazing ribs.
