Stopped in for lunch and was a bit let down. Ordered sliced brisket and it came out with a hair. Had it re done and after the wait and redo the brisket was somewhat bland. For a bbq joint to be around this long I would think the food would be great. The other thing I wasn't happy about was... More

Love the ribs. They are mouth watering. The place is like a hometown store,but it was worth the stop.

We were looking for Texas BBQ while in the Dallas area and found this gem! Place was a little whole in the wall but so worth the stop! Great ribs, sausage and everything else. If you haven't been there yet, you must go!!!

Nostalgic old bbq joint near downtown. Nothing pretty to look at, but the food is terrific, the prices are reasonable. Staff is courteous and efficient.

It's a little hole-in-the-wall, mom-and-pops kind of place. The food was ready pretty quick and the taste was ok. Some of the meats were a bit cold, but overall it was good. The service was good as well.

This is very over priced! The portion is very small. Not my first choice for bbq in Dallas! This is just mediocre and over priced!

It's nice that they have an order online option, after driving all day we were not up for going to a crowded restaurant. This place is very crowded, there was a long line to sit down so I assumed it must be great. The BBQ was good, nothing outstanding or award winning but good and no complaints. The rest of... More

In Dallas for business and this place was recommended. Good BBQ but the fryer was broken which was a bit disappointed. Cool dive spot though.

Probably not the best idea to go to BBQ on a business lunch , because you have to eat ribs with your fingers. A knife and fork just isn't right for BBQ and fried chicken. I didn't see fried chicken on the menu, but saw a Sonnys famous fried chicken in the south part of Dallas. Next visit, I'll try... More
