“the BEST ribs and smoked goodness!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

This place was across the street from us, which meant I could always smell the smoke from the meat day in and day out - making me crave their food non stop!

Their portions are huge, their prices cheap, their food AMAZING! Meat and more meat done in a variety of ways and all served with their delicious smokey bbq sauce. Definitely go to this place, the staff are also very friendly!

“Great St. Louis cut ribs and fried pies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

They have multiple locations in Dallas area. I like downtown location and Greenville avenue. Ribs are great, but you must try a fried pie. If you have never had one ..indulge yourself, they are not low cal.

“Wonderful lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

I had the two meat combo for lunch, and it was terrific. I enjoyed eating outside (under cover - it was pouring!), and both the brisket and pulled pork were fork tender, smokey and delicious.

I will definitely return the next time I'm in Dallas!

“One of the Better Options in Dallas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Despite the name, the brisket here is the best item. It's got a good smoky flavor, like genuine barbeque should have. The ribs are pretty good but not standout. The sides are decent. The place isn't fancy, it's cafeteria-style service, but the staff are friendly and I find it a pretty enjoyable place to have some of the better barbeque to be found in Dallas.

“True Texas BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

While in Dallas, we wanted some true Texas Barbeque. Not overpriced like many of the bbq places, very affordable. Like most texan bbq it wasn't so much about the sauce as it is the meat. My girlfriend got the sandwich and I had the ribs/chopped beef. Some of the best barbeque i have had in my life. Anybody looking for a great place to eat, go to Baker's
