  • "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!"

  • "The outside wasn't open but the covered outside was and let's just say it was way too loud with babies crying, etc. I really had hoped we could have been placed outside like requested. "

  • "Been to all of them in NYC and this was a pleasant and unexpected calm dining experience. Delightful! Usually, the restaurants are noisy and chaotic. The service was impeccable. We could actually have a conversation. We will definitely return. "

  • "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."

  • "Enjoyed our meal at Dallas ban. Everything was good- would not say great or rate it as high as it was from others. I would stick to the ribs and not venture to the chicken or pulled pork. The chicken wings were very tasty."

  • "Used to frequent this restaurant when I lived on CPW & it was a great "go-to" place for good BBQ. Most products were fantastic! Went there Sun after the Museum of Natural History... what a difference. Corn bread is dry. Ribs & chicken very undercooked. My breast meat was still bleeding. Tempura vegetables undercooked and all stuck together like a ball. Our server Mohammed had to change it twice before they finally got it right. Onion was cold, at least a day old and dry. Crispy shrimp deathly overcooked and not edible. Our waiter agreed. Management is weak. Some people were screaming on their phones throughout the restaurant, annoying others seeking to enjoy already poorly prepared meals. Managers do nothing. Just a sad state of affairs :("

  • "I told host we had reservation ( i wanted open table credit) bit he didn't look us up. Our appetizers came out after about 15 min or so which is fine, but about 3 minutes after our apps came or out entrees were served. The server saw we had just started eating our apps so he suggested he bring them back to kitchen, we agreed. We finished our apps and our server showed up with complimentary cupcakes for customer appreciation , we still hadn't gotten our main course yet... The server apologized and about 6 minutes later, our food that had now been sitting under a light in the kitchen for about 30 min....i wont knock the food. The food was good, service was so bad, i would not return.also, we were never offered the cupcakes after our meal...."

  • "Great service but the noise level was horrid. Seating is too tight and I could clearly hear details of conversations all around me. The food wasn't bad but not anything I'd rush to get back to. I could see myself there if all other barbecue options were closed."
    Dined on 10/24/2013
  • "This restaurant has consistently good food, service, and drinks. The only problem with this location is the noise level in the dining room. Music was blaring (the same song over and over, actually) and the server had to bend down and we had to speak directly into his ear for him to even hear our order."
