14 of us descended on Sonny Bryans in downtown Dallas. The young lady waiting on us, the bartender and the kitchen staff were fantastic. The facility itself could use a good cleaning which put off some of our guests but when we relaxed and the...More

Me and my wife arrived a little before 1am. We ordered our food and went to sit down and wait. While we sat there we saw a car drive around twice before parking. I heard an employee say in Spanish that he was scared. I...More

Great bbq as they have at all locations but the portion of brisket to potato was way smaller than the other stores give and this location is super small and really old and dirty. They need to bring it up to the standard of the...More

I judge BBQ places by their ribs and this place had some good ones. I also got the brisket and pulled chicken to split with my wife. The brisket could have been more moist but still a great pic. The sauce was a nice touch....More

The Original Sonny Bryan's on Inwood Rd, does not look like the picture above. It's a wood-smoked-smelling, hole- in-the-wall with a huge fan base that doesn't mind the decor as long as they can score some honest BBQ. My wife and I stopped by the...More

This place has been around forever. Food is very good. Prices average. Sauce is heated and superb. This place has been kind of a dump forever, too, but that's it's charm. They used to close early in the afternoon when they ran out of meat,...More

This BBQ joint is the real deal, with great meat choices. You'll leave smelling smokey but isn't that the point? Fine Texas meet and sides. Bring your appetite.

This is a great hole in the wall BBQ place, with the best BBQ in Dallas. Sonny Bryan has multiple locations around town, but this is the best location. The rib dinner is to die for.
