So glad you are still in business! I have such fond childhood memories of my mother and I going to garage sales early on Sat. mornings and getting lunch at Smokey's. Chopped, extra sauce and relish with fries. New Orleans tries hard on their barbq., but it is just not Tex. style. Thanks for the great food and memories.
I stumbled upon this joint during a layover. Cool building on the outside, but the food is nothing special. its good, not great, and I'd go so far as to say the sides, at least the potato salad and cole slaw are subpar. I I'm not terribly impressed for the money I dropped.
We ate at Sonny Bryans in the West End while visiting the King Tut exhibit at the DMA, this location is a convenient quick train ride from the Museum. Located in quaint area of restaurants in Dallas, the West End, Sonny Bryans has the best pork ribs I ever had. Try the big rib man plate, around 12 ribs for 18USD, but way more than enough food for 2, so you can share. It comes with 2 hearty sides, a salad, fresh rolls, and a hearty portion of pickles, sliced onions jalapenos. Sit by the window, you get to look down at all the street traffic and passersby, also has outdoor seating but it was too windy that day. Excellent onion rings, a must have and try the turkey and brisket. The smoked sausage was mediocre. Service was excellent. The lavatory is located in the basement, accessible thru a lift. Sonny's has multiple locations, and when we asked around for the best bbq, Sonny's was recommended again and again.
Best barbecue since they opened in the 40s! in Dallas... 'twas my Mom's fav too. I just LOVE them - best location is on Inwoodnear Parkland Hosp but the folks on Lovers Ln are real nice to you too. They both keep the smokers going doing their job to perfection. mmmm, good !!!
