Just a cheap place to eat BBQ. Super slow and indifferent service, paper plates and canteen style service. But dang the ribs were good

Different atmosphere than I expected but it was nice. The ribs were a bit greasy but had a good flavor. The sandwich was very good but I prefer a white hamburger type bun rather than a wheat bun. Again...I'd go back. :)

I wouldn't go back again. The customer service quality is rude/poor, the food quality isn't fresh nor good. I would recommend going to another BBQ place. The employees treat you with disrespect. This was my first time going there and the manager of the place went beyond my comfort zone after trying to leave the place. The food isn't served... More

Come on, how can you not give this place 5 stars? Everything is great. Try the combo for lunch, everything on it is wonderful. Lots of bbq places have mushy or fatty pork and overly dry beef. Not here. That really know how.

I ordered the ribs with sides of mac'n'cheese and fried okra and a dessert peanut butter and chocolate fried pie. Heavenly!!! Every single bite was amazing, and I was soooo full for hours! Highly recommended!

We went to Baker's Ribs in downtown Dallas. We ordered Brisket and Ribs at the counter, with a giant baked potato. The food was fantastic. The Brisket melted in our mouths. The Ribs were also good. Since it was a late noon, the staff were eating as well, and they got very excited to learn that we came from the... More

Had the 3 meat combo plate with ribs, brisket and pulled pork. Had the mac and cheese and baked beans for my sides with texas toast. Everything was great. The brisket with very juicy and if I wasnt in public I would have done a dance whilst eating the stuff. Got a little cocky and ordered a fried lemon pie... More

Our last stop in Dallas and it was a great choice! Order / pay at the front counter and then find a table. Everyone was very nice and helpful, since they realized we were not from the area ( probably our lack of knowing their ordering process ). It was like the episode from Seinfeld but there were no soup... More

After dinner we wanted to try the fried pies everyone was talking about. WOW. They are delicious. Flaky crust and warm filling. The peach and blackberry were the best. Only 3.50 each so a cheap dessert.

Brisket and their veggies is what I expected to enjoy the most. But the ribs knocked me out. So smoky and delicious. The two salads were also top notch. Friendly people too. Lots of parking and even an upper deck for niece skyline views.
