Went to Sonny's the last day of my trip. It was highly recommended my locals and they were not wrong. Their Brisket and their Sausage is delicious. Their BBQ sauce is incredible. A different flavor from the BBQ I tried before. I am used to Tennessee style BBQ (which I love), but Sonny's has a different take on it and... More

Folks have been coming to Sonny Bryans for many years. The barbecue brisket and ribs are the best in Dallas! A must for your out of town visitors! Two locations get there early ...and enjoy!

Stopped here twice now and was impressed both times. Pulled Pork or Sausage is the way to go. Ribs were a little dry this last time. Good selection of Beer to accompany the smoky meat.

Sonny Bryan's is a Dallas tradition. When i am cooking for visitors i always run down and get all the meat and sides. it is also good for dine in. the meat can not be beat and the onion rings are incredible. the hot rolls are so delicious you want to throw your diet to the wind.

The chicken wings were hot and spicy. Loved the fried okra as well as the pork ribs. Very casual dining and is reasonably priced. Good local brew selections.

I like to try local places when I'm in town and looked for Texas style BBQ. Last month o tried Cousins BBQ and it was great. Went to Sonny's original location based on reviews. Its a vlassic hole in the wall place. I had pulled pork, brisket ,onion rings and baked beans. The meat had very little natural smoked flavor.... More

Pulled pork sandwich was good, but not distinguished. Portions small. Sides were very small. Was expecting more. Waitress was attentive and friendly. Atmosphere was all right, nothing special. Would eat there again but not until trying other BBQ spots in Dallas.

Today went to the location on Inwood and was very disappointed. I got the daily special which had ribs, pulled pork and sausage. My wife got sliced brisket sandwich; asked for a lean portion, and received mostly fat. My ribs and pork were mostly fat. The sausage was good. The cole slaw was poor; too much mayo. The fries were... More
