Starting with the truffle
Starting with the truffle popcorn to the 3 way fries to the local draft beers then on to the main courses, everything we tried was very good. My son loved the chicken fried steak. The shrimp and grits were ok. The pork loin special with purple cabbage was also outstanding. We were too stuffed to try the tableside s'mores although they looked great at the next table. Next time we will save room. Parking is a little problem...valet was very busy and seemed to take a while to get our car. We will be back for more Texas comfort food!

We ate it all!
The service was fantastic as we ordered drinks, apps, entrees, and the required s'mores!! Everything was great and I highly recommend the chicken fried steak.

Brunch w/ the girls
I ate brunch there on Sunday. I made a reservation for 11:30, but from that time to I'd say as late as noon, there was no wait. I had the chile relleno, my bestie gotthe T Benny. We both thought they were great. BUT the mimosas were so weak, we thought it was juice mixed with Fresca! And our food took about 45 min to come out. But all in all I would go again.

Kitchen closes at 2 so don't accept a 1:30 brunch reservation like we did -- they let us stay in the restaurant and eat after 2 though :)

This place is pretty unique, funky enviroment, good service and excellent food. But be prepared, it is not cheap, four adults, with three pre dinner cocktails, one bottle of wine, two appetizers, four entres and one dessert was over $200.00. Service was nicely laid back and we did not feel pressure to eat and run, that made our meal that much more enjoyable!

Fantastic food and terrific service. Go before you die.

Perfect for a Birthday!!
I love bringing someone here on their birthday! The singing is great and humorous. The services is second to none. I actually commented to my boyfriend that our waiter loved his job.

A fun, worthwhile Dallas dinner
Our group of 5 enjoyed dinner at TIllman's on a very rainy Tuesday summer night. We were most blown away by the truffle butter popcorn, fried pickles and trio of french fries and prickly pear margaritas. The service was extremely attentive and efficient.

Food and Fun
Tillman's Roadhouse in the Bishop Arts District is a fun place to go with friends. They have a good space for groups with tables that encourage conversation and sharing. The menu is fun and creative, entrees have just enough twist to make them different but not too far out. Fun table sharing of s'mores - an adult version of the childhood treat. Creative cocktails and attentive service.

The food here was absolutely
The food here was absolutely delicious. The ribeye was cooked to medium exactly and was tender and one of the best steaks I have ever had. The service was decent, nothing exemplary. The décor is very eclectic and funky but in my opinion they could have turned the house lights down a bit. The restaurant is quite loud. Our server had a hard time hearing us when standing right next to us. The tables are exceedingly close together. So close you are privy to every detail of the conversations going on next to you (quite distracting). Not somewhere I would go if I were trying to create a romantic evening. This is more of a dinner with friends kinds of place.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food at Tillman's Roadhouse is outstanding. Though the servings at Dinner are small by Dallas standards for this price point. But if you love good food, don't let that stop you, it is worth it. Lunch and Brunch portions and prices are standard based on the quality of the food provided. Very cute place.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated my cousins birthdays at Tillmans! Our waiter was friendly and the food was awesome! The decor was country meets elegant and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! I will definitely recommend this place to others and be back with my hubby!

Tongue Tied and Twisted
Very delicious food and in a neat part of town. We had a party of 10 and each of us got something different. To start with the idea of popcorn to satisfy our appetizer interest was nice and light. Perfect. Then we ordered the Trio of Fries. Also great. The chili ones are the best of the three. The 3 standout meals were the Venison Chili, the Chicken Fried Steak, and the Rib Eye. The steak was by far one of the best I've eaten in a long time. Excellent. Very fresh and cooked just perfect. Loved it. Then we had the Smores for dessert and a Chocolate Chip Cookie sundae. Both were way over the top, but so enjoyable. Homemade and nice cap off to our evening. I would definitely go back and recommend a friend.

great birthday brunch
Loved their coffee, service was great. I want a huge fan of their eggs Benedict but everything else was delicious.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
A good dining experience
Good ambiance. Excellent "spin" on food. Popcorn is great; shrimp and grits excellent. S'mores are a nice touch to end the meal.

Great experience for out-of-towners
We chose TR because of the great Texas-style experience our out-of-town guests would receive. They were impressed and loved the atmosphere, decor and food. Thanks!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was the first time we had enjoyed brunch at Tillman's. Loved the $3 Mimosas and our food was fabulous. The T'Benny is a delicious version of eggs Benedict and the pancakes and chicken and biscuits were also great. We usually order an appetizer when we come for dinner so we were a little surprised at how long the wait was for our food. Next time we come for brunch, we'll know to order one.

Wine LIst Lacking
The food was amazing, however the wine list left a lot to be desired.

THE birthday spot
I had heard nothing but wonderful things about this place so I took my boyfriend for dinner as a surprise for his birthday. He's all about atmosphere and trying new things. It was awesome. Everything is so interesting and different while still very delicious. And the s'mores.... oh my goodness.... I am dreaming about them 2 days later. Our server was great and we absolutely loved the rustic chic atmosphere. We will definitely be coming here again.

Worth the Trip
We were drawn to the home made smores. Went to the Dallas location. Small and loud. It is not the kind of place to go if you're looking for romantic. But if you're looking for fun and different than it is a great place to go. They are pricey. I had the blood orange margarita (small glass servings) at $11 a piece! I had the pancetta wrapped chicken and mac and cheese. The chicken was good, not great. It borderlined dry. My husband had the chicken fried steak. It was OUTSTANDING. They make the CFS with filet. It was like cutting butter and it was divine. We also tried the trio of fries. The highlight was the table side smores. We will go again and try the Fort Worth location. Not someplace we would go a lot, but worth it once in a while.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tillman's is one of our rotation restaurants with friends and out of towners. Never have been disappointed with the chicken fried steak, post oak baby back ribs and venison frito pie. Tillman's serves large portions so leave some room for the homemade smores for desert. Casual yet upscale... still one of my favorites highlighing Texas flare.

Saturday night reservation
Wonderful ribs! Service was outstanding. Would highly recommend!

Fun twist for brunch
First time here for brunch.... had the skillet migas and the monkey bread. Just felt like we had to ask for lots of items you would normally associate with a brunch place - like olives for the Bloody Mary, maple syrup, butter for toast, no salsa served with the migas.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome home style indulgence
For my birthday, I wanted to splurge and this was the right place for comfort food indulgence! Nothing has calories on your birthday, right? Cheese filled tater tots, chicken fried steak, and homemade s'mores. It was home style cooking heaven!
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The truffle oil popcorn is outstanding. Great appetizer!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our reservation was for 8pm and we arrived a few minutes before...they seated us right away...bonus
The food is great! Here's what we had and would order again
Shrimp and grits (one of the best I've had)
Ribs and Mac n cheese (Mac was a little bland, but everything else had big bold flavor it wasn't a deal breaker)
Then the BEST....s'mores!!!! All homemade ...the graham crackers, dark chocolate and three flavors of marshmallows....orange, maple, & coffee. We told our waiter we were full, but were craving it so he recommended a half order....perfect!
Service was wonderful! I'm 9 mos pregnant and really wanted their blood orange margarita so he had a non alcoholic blood orange drink made for me...hit the spot!

'Til Next Time
My husband and I dined at Tillman's for our anniversary five years ago. I finally had the chance to return with a few girlfriends for Sunday brunch. Our waiter was very attentive and the food was excellent! (The hike down the street to retrieve my car afterward wasn't so fun in heels; but then again, it allowed me to burn a few of the calories I'd packed on after stuffing my face with sweet potato biscuits.)
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Neighborhood Spot
I went to Tillman's for my birthday and had 6:45 dinner reservations. Service was prompt and the food was great!! I loved the 80's pop hits they were playing in the background and the complementary spicy popcorn was a surprising treat... we ate the entire bowl!! The ribs were the most tender I have ever had. I have had ribs at many north Dallas restaurant and they DO NOT compare to these!! You will not be disappointed!
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant was full of energy and lots of fun all around. I had the corn gnocchi and although it was not bad, it wasn't something I would get again. It was a little too doughy for my liking. However, the flavor was delicious. My friend had the prociutto wrapped chicken, I had a bite, and it was delicious! Finally, to end the meal we had the tableside s'mores. It's a great little treat and every ingredient of the s'more is handmade by the restaurant. I would do that again in a heartbeat.
Loved the atmosphere and the neighborhood where this place is located. I would totally go again!

First time experience at Tillman's
We ordered two appetizers, the trio of fries and cheese tater tots. The trio of fries was plenty for the whole table - it seemed endless. The goat-cheese filled tater tots were awesome.
For the entree I had the Chicken Fried Steak - it was one of the best CFS's I had ever had, as they used real steak. It was outstanding. It had a jalapeno cream gravy was super yums.
We also had the Tableside Smores for desert. A little firepot right on out table with homemade graham crackers, chocolate slices, and three different flavors of marshmallows - all made from scratch.
My only issue with Tillman's was they didn't have Shiner on tap - but they did have it in bottles and our waiter brought me a fresh cold glass with every one.

I loved this place. The service was amazing and the food was even better! I loved that I could experience great tasting food and feel comfortable in what I was wearing. It was such a fun atmosphere and I didn't feel like is needed to be in a
Suit and tie. Chicken fries steak was unlike anything else I have ever eaten!

Get the smores!
If you order nothing else, get the smores. They make their own graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows and you cook them over a flame at your table. Dinner was a gourmet version of everyday things like Frito pie, chicken fried steak and baby back ribs.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, long wait!
Everything for the most part was very good. The food was outstanding! It is comfort food, with a twist. The s' mores are a must, the marshmellows and graham crackers are made from scratch. The only disappointing thing was that we ended up waiting nearly 30 mintues. We had a reservation but still had to wait and there was no place to sit and it was cold outside.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were celebrating our 14th anniversary and wanted to go somewhere special. We found a gem with Tillman. The food was fantastic. We loved the popcorn pre-appetizer and the tator tots appetizer. Our main courses were amazing. i have already recommend Tillmans to several of my friends.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had been here before but went to celebrate our 5th anniversary. It was a perfect evening and we couldn't have asked for better food, service and ambiance!

Great Date Night Spot
We had a wonderful experience at Tillman's. We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and were seated within 5 minutes. The service was friendly and prompt. Our glasses never got past half empty before being refilled and our food was prepared quickly. This was our first time dining here and we will be returning in the near future.

Go for the S'Mores
I had read numerous reviews before heading to Tillman's and I have to tell you that we went because I wanted the tableside S'Mores. I had the Beef Short Rib with Sweet Potato Grits and braised Rainbow Chard. It was amazing...the short rib was incredibly tender and the grits delicious. My partner had the chicken fried "steak". It was just okay....not as good as it had been written up to be. For the S"Mores the homemade marshmallows we mint, maple and root beer. The mint marshmallow with the homemade graham cracker and chocolate ended up tasting like an amazing thin mint girl scout cookie.....only so much better. The maple were good too, but the root beer came off tasting medicinal. Over all the ambiance is wonderful...if not a bit loud.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
S'mores cannot be missed!
Our dinner was amazing. Our waiter was spectacular and knew all the answers to everything - down to who made their steak knives. The fabulous evening was topped off with Tableside S'mores which cannot be passed up! Be sure to save room for dessert! As we were leaving I noticed everyone else felt the same as several of the tables had the order as well.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went with 5 women total. 3 of the women ordered the migas. they were really bad. they came out in skillet which is odd and eggs were hard. One should not have to use a knife to cut migas. Migas were very dry so asked for hot sauce and waiter never brough it. Ended up sending back two of the orders back (which i absolutely hate to do) and got something different The other food was a bit pricey for what it was but relatively good. I probably will not go back for brunch but will give it another try for regular menu.

We didn't know what to expect from the Roadhouse - we had heard it was good, but the menu was a little different and often restaurants don't live up to their hype. Tillman's Roadhouse did not fail us! We sampled the charred ribs, chicken fried steak and halibut and have nothing but good things to say about each dish. The chicken fried steak is not like any other you've had and it was delicious. The s'mores dessert is their signature dessert and I can't wait to go back just for that. It was so yummy - the marshmallows melted in your mouth as the chocolate melted right along with it giving it that "campfire goodness". I highly recommend this restaurant.
