Irving >Sonny Bryan's Steakhouse
I am glad I asked my FB friends for some ideas while in Dallas. I had the combo plate (ribs, shoulder, & brisket) with some rings, beans, and mac N cheese. Tons of food and luckily I had some help from 'da 'rents.
The sauce is strong. Served warm in a Corona bottle. Legit! The rings are big super crispy but a bit greasy. Shredded pig shoulder is soft and pairs well with the sauce. Stick with the warm sauce instead of the "pork sauce".
Ribs were okay, but not as tender as I dreamed. The brisket was good with a nice pink ring & good flavor by itself.
Guess it is true, Texas knows how to BBQ.
For the record I think Salt Lick is still the strongest bbq show in TX. I gotta get me back down to Austin. Sonny Bryan's will certainly tied me over until I get back there!
Average bbq. Many people rave about Sonny Bryans BBQ and I was really disappointed. The meat was just Ok. Honestly it was a bit dry and flavorless. I have had far better BBQ at other places. Maybe it's because it's not the original location which is Dallas who knows. I hope the next time try it at the original location I can agree with the other people that Sonny Bryans is really the best BBQ in Texas.
good BBQ as Dallas goes. there are several locations in DFW but this and the 'Inwood' location are my two favorites because of the inhouse smoker. the downside of course is that your clothing reeks of the pervasive stench but in my mind it's worth it if you want to maximize the flavor of their brisket or pulled pork.
Good Eats. Excellent entree's, the ribs are excellent and recommend the sausage sampler. The sides aren't extraordinary.
