We picked up food from this restaurant. We ordered pulled pork, potato slad, cole slaw, mac and cheese and bread. The pork and potato salad were very good. The coleslaw tasted fresh. I didn't care for the taste of the mac and cheese at all. We enjoyed our meal!

We had a $5 off coupon on a $20 purchase so we headed for the local Sonny Byran's. I ordered the ribs and potato salad and my spouse ordered the pulled port sandwich with green bean casserole. The ribs were apparently pre cooked in an oven and had dried out. They were extremely tough to eat and the flavor was... More

Stopped here for lunch with some business colleagues and had a good lunch. We had a selection of dishes from the menu and all were delivered quickly and tasted great.

I have been eating at this location for over fifteen years. This is good, solid Texas BBQ with a menu typical of such restaurants. I particularly like the sausage plate (both jalapeno and regular) and the chopped beef sandwich. The onion rings are great.

I thought this; trip that the food wasn't quite up to the regular standard at Sonny's, but it's still pretty good. We love BBQ and we tried a bit of everything on the menu with several of us trading some pieces of our choice with others in return. Everything was good tasting and the various sauces used were interesting as... More

Definitely not the best barbecue place I have eaten at. Pulled Chicken was fantastic. Briscuit was average at best. Friend had ribs which were good. Mac and cheese was horrible.

I enjoyed it here, especially when spending money on a groupon. It's a lot of food for not a whole lot that way but if I didn't have a groupon, I wouldn't drive that far as often.

I always try to come by when visiting family in Dallas. This was by far the best visit yet. BBQ and sides were great. Late afternoon lunch so it was quiet and not too busy. Love the brisket and sauce. Will be back next trip.

I typically don't like barbecue, but my daughter said this place was supposed to be one of the best around so I decided I'd try it with her. I ordered a turkey sandwich plate with French fries and cole slaw, and my daughter ordered the chicken salad. We also ordered a side of their "World Famous" onion rings. Although the... More

I remember Sonny's BBQ when it was in a kind of ramshackle building on Inwood near Stemmons Freeway. Each and every I went to Dallas in those, I made it a point to go there. I remember, in those days, the place would open for lunch at around 11:30 AM and close when they ran out of food which was... More
