Great spot not far from central Dallas. Delicious bbq- we had chicken and briscuit. Change of pace bbq sauce from the usual "cattleman or Texas hot" choice you get in Dallas (KC style is more to my liking and this sauce comes close). Really nice folks run the place, the price is reasonable and overall a great experience!

Tenderbabyback ribs. The beef rib was outstanding. The brisket was tender and smoky. Baked beans were tasty. The homemade pond cake very good. Corn was delicious.

The coleslaw had bacon bits, which wasn't pleasant. The only BBQ sauce available was spicy, no medium or mild to be found. Most of the available sides were also spiced up. Few options for those who don't like, or can't handle, spicy food. The potato salad was pretty good.

Everything about my meal was amazing! The chicken was smoked perfectly, fell off the bone and was not dry. The pickles/onion slices that came with the plate had a sweet and tangy taste to them and were delicious. The side order of mac and cheese was amazing with it's chile's to give it that extra oomph!!

We were looking for Slow bone bbq and landed at Off the Bone. We were pleasantly surprised. The bbq meats were well cooked and tender. Loved the brisket and ribs. Sausage was Ok. Service was good and the place is small and cozy.

My choice for barbecue Is Pecan Hill I really think you can't compare. I have tried both. No lines but sometimes there is a reason
