We were craving fried chicken and came across Brick & Bones. Although they have had to limit their menu based on these Covid 19 times, their selection was still good one. We enjoyed their 6 pc chicken and 3 sides. The chicken was moist, very...well seasoned and perfectly crisp! Squirting on lime wedges also added to the wonderful flavor. We also ordered the habanero bacon mac n cheese, Mexican corn and the green beans. All were excellent! The beans were saltier than I normally like, but the flavor was wonderful. The place is a little hard to find, but worth the search.More

We visited early with some Family from Dallas. We were in town to visit family and have some fun. We arrived and were quickly seated on a long thin table that was fantastic for our group being a little larger and allowed us to talk,...laugh and eat as a family we all shared tastes of everything. We were a diverse group from teens to 60’s. We all loved the vibe it displaced. The menu is small, simple and to the point. Very reasonably priced. All the chicken is fantastic. Sides are wonderful. Atmosphere is radiant and perfect. Our drinks were fantastic. They have beers, wine and poured drinks. Deep Ellum is a great area of Dallas. Older buildings renovated to newer shops, restaurants and bars. I’m sure as we left, the whole area was hoping as I used to say in my 20’s. So no matter your age, go check it out! It’s worth it.More

First time in Texas and Dallas and Deep Ellum. Discovered this place while just looking for something to do. I’m here for a new position with America Airlines, and it is HOT. The room they put me in was cool (La Quinta DFW South in...Irving) and glad they did. Deep Ellum is the definite party center/bohemian center of Dallas. Lost of small eats, restaurants, bars, clubs, etc. ALL manner of people there, especially over the weekends. You’ll see the tattoos, business people, hobos, you name it. The place itself has a nice decor with a side bar area to your right as you enter. I was there early with my group, and they hesitated to go in. I love a new adventure (within reason), and the place screams, “love me, or leave me” The brick of the building brings out the mood of the place and the food. Drink is drink, but a good chicken joint is priceless. The attendant who serve me was cute, and looked after us nubes. The hot chicken is spicy but not too hot, with a bright pepper seasoning. The oil they use to smother the hot is not oily nor thick or dripping. Chicken is cooked to perfection and the added bonus is their sides. Their mashed potato is rustic yet creamy with a chive/garlic taste. My buddies ordered regular chicken and a beet salad, but they tell me it was great tasting. Crunchy but not so that you hear crackle, and the seasoning was on point, not too salty yet salty enough to warrant a beer or two. In heart, this place is a bar that just happen to have chicken. You can find a table early enough, but I figure if you go later evenings on Friday/Saturday, the place will be packed. Don’t let that ruin it though; places like that thrive on the experience and the food. Go with a friend and have a few, or share a drink with a local; this is the spot.More

Don’t let the entry fool you. If I hadn’t heard about this place in advance, I wouldn’t have gone in. Not very much curb appeal. Has the look and feel of an ordinary bar on the outside. Wouldn’t even think it was a restaurant. But...go inside. Do it!!! The chicken was fantastic! The sides were awesome. Jalapeño biscuits with gravy !!!! Habanero MAC and Cheese !!!!! Wasabi Mash Potatoes. !!!!! Mexican corn !!!!!! And did I mention the chicken! Our server Gretchen was so nice and answered all our questions and went out of her way to have some custom cocktails created for us. She was great! Go in and experience this place! You’ll be glad you did.More

My friend and I were craving some fried chicken after a night out and she suggested this place since it was close by! I'm so glad she did! The fried chicken was amazing and really hit the spot after a night out. I can't wait...to visit this place again. I'm still dreaming about that chicken...More

LOVED the habanero mac! Also, the cheesy tenders and hot tenders were super delicious. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. 10/10 recommend. We will be back!

Get your life at Brick & Bones!!!!!!! The chicken here gives Popeyes a run for their money. So juicy, so crispy, and SO much flavor. We had the sexy chicken (fried but not battered) and the 6 pc battered and fried chicken...we were pretty much...licking our fingers by the end of dinner. We also had the elote and macaroni and cheese which were quite yummy as well! Contemplated going back a second night in a row but decided it probably wasn’t the healthiest option to have fried chicken 2 nights in a row but ohhhh was it tempting! To top it off, the bartenders were so friendly and helpful with suggesting items on the menu. Loved the atmosphere of this place too! The next time I’m in Dallas, this is the FIRST place I will go to eat. For anyone visiting Dallas or living there and have yet to visit Brick & Bones, it is imperative that you make your way there ASAP. That is all :)More

Boy, has Deep Ellum changed! In many ways, this is for the best, though it still feels odd hearing Shaggy playing over the speakers of rooftop bars...in any case, Brick & Bones is the perfect blend of old and new: dark and a bit grungy...with cool and relaxed vibes, but with some creative cocktails, a decent selection of craft beers, and excellent food. We had the hot chicken, habanero bacon Mac and cheese, and the Mexican corn; every bite was better than the next. Honestly, we couldn’t decide what we liked most because everything was just that good. Brick & Bones is also in a good location in Deep Ellum with lots of other restaurants/bars/clubs in super close proximity.More

We have been regulars since Brick and Bones opened 3 years ago. We take all of our out of town friends here. It is a great dive bar with the best fried chicken you’ll ever eat.

I had not originally planned on eating at Brick & Bones, but my plans had fallen through and I still wanted to eat somewhere unique while I was visiting Dallas. I cam across Brick & Bones and I was not disappointed. The Fried Chicken was...full of flavour. The pre-brined chicken makes a huge difference that you can really taste. I also had the Mexican corn side, which was just as enjoyable to eat as the fried chicken. My server was super friendly and make some great suggestions and made sure that I tried the hot sauce! Unique, great food, and friendly people. Great combination.More
