Sissy's Southern Kitchen & Bar
Grandma, Your Fried Chicken LostGreat Cocktails (Try the Cucumber Cooler) Delicious Fried Chicken and Southern Twists such as Deviled Eggs with Creme Fraiche topped with caviar. Sides are served family style; So grab a group, order a bucket of chicken along with some sides and have a good time!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food I have had this year!I stumbled upon Sissy's because I had an hour wait at the restaurant across the street. Was killing time to window shop at the antique market 2 doors down and walked into Sissy's. There were two seats at the bar and we had dinner. LOVED it so much i went back 2 days later.
This is a classy-casual atmosphere. Food portions are actually normal size instead of huge. Which I enjoy because I can actually have an appetizer, small salad, then entree. More the traditional dining experience of 20 years ago. I can see why the chef was featured on a cooking show. All of the spices and flavors are obviously well planned and mixed.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-Graduation DinnerWe were in a hurry and wanted to have a nice dinner with extended family before my son's graduation at 7:30 that evening. Everyone we encountered at Sissy's was helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The food was very good and everyone in our party from teenagers to seniors enjoyed the experience and the meal. The atmosphere was charming. The only slight negative was lack of parking and slow fetching of our car from the valet when we left.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely a Southen GemThe most adorable yet chic dining experience!! Great job on the decor and ambience. Reminds me of my Auntie's place. Food is divine6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHome-cooked with a twist and loveSometimes the things from home are the comforts that you need and Sissy's has plenty of that. Staff members are personable and delightful, the ambience is thoroughly warm and Southern (think New Orleans patio dining) and portions just right. Loved all the old standbys: deviled eggs, beet salad, the BEST fried chicken, non-soggy coleslaw and apple cobbler. Other than the whisky sour, the drinks were a little underwhelming given the flavor tipped generally in favor of bourbon without any counterbalance but certainly "efficient" as our waitress put it. That said, I did enjoy it and think it might be particularly charming for a late supper. Will certainly be back!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is amazing!!Sissy's was recommended to us by a friend that lives in Dallas and on our most recent trip we made it a "must stop" spot. Did not disappoint. Ambience was perfect and food was even better. Service was exceptional!! What a great, new favorite spot!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Country FoodIt is worth checking out! Good food and different country fried chicken! Good price on food, but drinks were way to expensive! Still recommend trying out!!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA real southern treat!!Just loved it!!

Got over having to pay for the cornbread after I tasted it...really great!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSouthern with a TwistSissy's offers the best of Southern cooking with class and refinement. The "parlor" is lovely, and available for private events. The food is superb. The menu includes the classics and offers some surprises. highly recommended!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my second time to eatIt was my second time to eat at Sissy's. I live in Southern California and miss good Southern cooking and charm. The first time we sat at the bar had dinner & drinks there and made friends. We had a great time. Last night was equally good and I enjoyed it as much as the first time. Great menu, great drinks, great food. Fun atmosphere.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening! Terrific foodGreat evening! Terrific food and great service, perfect Saturday night!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great food!I've been to Sissy's about 6-7 times and they never cease to deliver on great food with exceptional service. I'm never disappointed there. The drink menu is fun, and the food menu is just the right size with perfect southern cuisine dishes. I would highly recommend this place to couples or friends going out for a great dining experience with a vibrant atmosphere. (One of you has to get the bucket of fried chicken....I mean come on!)5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHoly fried chicken!Wow, I absolutely loved Sissy's! That was the fanciest and most delicious bucket of fried chicken I have every had. Add some mac'n'cheese and fried okra and it is perfection! I have seriously been thinking about this meal for days after the fact. The jalapeno margaritas are also incredible!!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place!Every time I dine at sissy's it's amazing! I would recommend it to everyone!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMIt exceeded our high expectations!We loved stepping into a different time and space. The Southern ambiance and fare was a great escape for my wife and I. The pimento cheese and ham salad with tea bread and the biscuits and cornbread basket with the divine honey butter were fun starters. I had the fried chicken and mashed potatoes and felt like I was eating in a Southern kitchen from 50 years ago. My wife had a sampling of the different sides (mac and cheese, squash casserole, and the best fried okra we've ever experienced) for her entree and she is eager to sample the rest next time. Sissy's did not disappoint with the attention to details in its design, staff attire, and culinary offerings. Thanks Sissy!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's all about the chickenAppetizers and sides are all great, the whole menu has many intriguing and tasty options, but the star of the show is the chicken. Cut into smallish pieces, the crisp home-made taste of the chicken and delicious crust is balanced perfectly. The genteel mod-Southern decor belies a vibrant and fun crowd dining here, and if conversation is on the menu, best to choose lunchtime. Dinner service can be crazy loud.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as usual!In love with the redfish, biscuits, and always the bread pudding, till next time!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Fried ChickenBest fried chicken in Dallas!

I will be back, have already made reservations for a birthday lunch!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFab Food..Fair ServiceHave been to Sissy's in the past. Food was fabulous as usual. However, we had a waiter that must have lost our order. We waited over an hour to just get our appetizers. Other than fair service, I would recommend Sissys. Looks like their popularity has impacted their service. Tables around us looked a bit frustated also. Hopefully, the service issue will be addressed soon.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMtasty as usual-crab cakestasty as usual-crab cakes and fried green tomatoes were yummy. fried chicken and spare ribs were very good.

I really couldn't say anything negative about the experience. It was all wonderful.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI HAD MET 2 WONDERFUL FRIENDSI HAD MET 2 WONDERFUL FRIENDS THAT MOVED HERE FROM CHICAGO.

Ha!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSouthern StyleWe had friends from the upper Midwest come to visit so we wanted to take them to a Southern style restaurnat. Sissy's couldnt have been more perfect. It is classic southern, right down to the china and mint julips. The food was excellent, the best fried chicken I have ever had, and the service was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I can't wait to go back.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time at Sissy's. BothSecond time at Sissy's. Both were memorable in terms of food, service and ambiance.

Our waiter was very accommodating. We will be back!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful as usual, but stungWonderful as usual, but stung by the $16 for four slices of fried green tomatoes, wouldn't have ordered if we'd known how expensive they were! Also asked to split slaw and potato with the chicken, and were charged extra.
Confused as to why this was so expensive when everything else is reasonable...3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLove The ChickenStill love the chicken and it is fantastic for leftovers the next day. Tried the fried pickles this time and enjoyed those. The greens are some of the best I've had, great side dish with the chicken. If you can get a seat at the bar, nice place to have a drink before dinner. If you are looking for a quiet romantic place for dinner, this is not the place. Good vibe - people laughing and enjoying themselves. Service is good and you never feel rushed. Maybe next time I'll try something other than the chicken.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMReally great restaurant! FoodReally great restaurant! Food was wonderful and their specialty cocktails were even better. Service was slightly off- the person who helped us wasn't actually our assigned waiter, which seemed slightly confusing for him. Very nice and not bad wait times, regardless.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the concept and the food,Love the concept and the food, but please let your waitresses wear something less homely!!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSissy's is consistently delicious.Sissy's is consistently delicious. I dined here one week after their opening and it keeps getting better and better. Easily one of my favorite spots in Dallas.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy first visit and I'll beMy first visit and I'll be back.

We were pleasantly surprised by the food, service and the ambiance. I recommend going to Sissy's again. Not a lot of space for a party of more than 5 indoors, however, we made it work. The chicken was divine and so were the potatoes. Good southern cooking with class.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
