    I only like baby back ribs extra well done so all the fat is cooked off. I made this special request not confident they would come out as requested. When my food was delivered, the ribs were absolutely perfect and delicious. On the negative side, it was a Saturday night and the noise level made it necessary to shout to have a conversation with my friend sitting directly across the table from me.

    I was recommended to try this spot and i did. Everything was great, however the hostess was a bit rude. In addition, it was Sunday and we asked if it was possible to change the TV to the football games, but on gentlemen stated he could not due to the way the technician set the TV up. I think on that specific day NFL games should be accessible. In all, it was great and I will definitely make a trip from Philadelphia again.

    The barbecue was over cooked and then slathered with sauce that was just sticky and overly sweet. Our waiter was harried and barely attentive. The ambiance was that of a hospital cafeteria with a bar.

    Dallas BBQ was a lazy choice my girlfriend and I decided to dine at after a movie at AMC Empire 25. It turned out to be the best BBQ joint we had ever been to. The food came in sizable portions, enough to cover 2 courses of meals, and by far, it was delicious! Although I don't really hand out 5 stars often, Dallas BBQ has definitely earned it.

    The UES Dallas BBQ is a suburban dining experience in every respect, though a pretty good one: tons of food at reasonable prices, comfortable surroundings, efficient service. We went there hoping that the barbeque would justify an SDE (see above) in the middle of Manhattan, and on the average, it did. The BBQ burgers were a huge hit with the two foreign guests we brought, the Texas chili was flavorful, the Caesar salad was fresh and plentiful. The bbq beef ribs, though meaty and not too fatty, were flavorless and disappointing even with the pretty good bbq sauce to cover the flavor deficit. Still, it could have been worse. Acceptable, if you can't get all the way to Harlem and Dinosaur BBQ.

    This is a very fun place for after work get together s, birthdays & special occasions. The drinks are truly Texas size & you don't have a hang over in the morning from water down drinks. The service is great, their portions are Texas size. The corn bread is absolutely amazing. A great time will be had by all. cost is about normal for Manhattan ( it won't bust your budget for a some what home meal)

    Although we've been here on several occasions before, we chose to celebrate my mom's 81st birthday. The prices are reasonable, the food is great and their cocktails are fully loaded!! I have been to several other locations but this one is close to home and happens to also be my favorite. The staff is friendly and attentive and nobody looks at funny when you're being loud. This Dallas BBQ is definitely on my list of favorites places for casual dining with friends and family.

    With several friends we revisited after about 5 years. We had good memories of the food. Not this time. The ribs were scrawny and tasteless. To be fair the pulled pork was good as was the cole slaw. The selection of beers was pathetic. We wont be back. Too bad.

    I haven't been to BBQ's in over six years and it was the first time that i was meeting my girlfriend's seven year old daughter,so i let the ladies pick where they wanted to eat and they choose Dallas bbq's. From the moment we stepped in to the restaurant we were greeted with courtesy and smiles the service was good and the food was better.we really enjoyed ourselves and made plans to go back there really soon!

    I heard so much about the Henny & Sticky Wings so I decided to go for it. The wings were very, very good and fairly priced for what you get and the the drinks were perfect. I was glad I made a reservation because the wait was less than 20 mins to be seated. However we were seated at a cheap metal rocky table, the food came out faster than I expceted but our waiter after he took our order never once came back to the table to ask if we wanted or needed anything, I had to flag him downto come back to the table. Good customer service is not their strong point. Overall had a good time but will not visit this particular location again, but will go to antoher Dallas BBQ for the good eats.
