Grandson was in town. Before moving, it was one of his favorites.
I know there are wide and varying opinions when it comes to barbecue but I have to give this place an “F”. The Texas Barbecue Association, if there is such a thing, should pull their license. First off, the burnt ends appetizer is a joke. It’s 7 or 8 pieces of what appear to be just brisket soaked in not so good sauce. Not a burnt end. Second, the pit beans reminded me of the can of pork and beans my mother used to server when I was growing up in LA - discussing. And the sausage - really, what is this. It’s nothing like sausage I’ve ever tasted. The texture isn’t even reminiscent of sausage. I would rate the brisket maybe a B+. And for the value, I would say this place rates a “D”. Serving size and cost don’t seem to be on the same playing field. I would recommend almost any other barbecue place in Dallas, and there are a tone of them, before I would visit 18&Vine.
Upscale BBQ at its best! The turkey salad was so unique and the portion was huge. The brisket was extremely juicy!
The food and drinks were quite good and the prices were excellent. The dining room is pretty ordinary, though and the A/C was set too low.
We celebrated my daughter’s high school graduation here. Morgan, our host, was wonderful! She was able to accommodate our party of 15. The food was delicious. The music was right. Overall great experience!
Quite disappointing, actually. We have been to 18th & Vine many times and had considered it a family favorite. So much so, that we brought family visiting from out of town to our “favorite BBQ spot.” Unfortunately, the experience did not live up to our expectations. Even though we were only 1 of 3 parties dining in the restaurant, the service was painfully slow. It took more than 10 minutes for them to bring us an empty water glass to drink water that was placed in the table. When ordering drinks it was discovered that they were out of stock on 5 of the 8 beers listed on their menu. When ordering food, they were out of stock on multiple appetizer, side dish and dessert options—at least they had BBQ. All in all it was a disappointing experience.
Great location and atmosphere!!! The fried okra is amazing!!!
The food was good, service started off great until the restaurant got busy. Overall it was great, I'd go back
Good food very nice server. The outside tables are nice.
Morgan was great. Great service and great food.
We had reservations on a Wednesday at 6:30 and were seated promptly but waited almost 20 minutes for anyone to take our drink order and then waited an additional 30 minutes before we received our drinks. Our waitress was very nice but this was not a good experience. I"ll give it another try in hopes this was just an off night.
I had high expectations for our visit to 18th & Vine BBQ, and was disappointed multiple ways. Maybe I should have been concerned when I was able to make a Saturday night reservation at 7:30 p.m. with no problem, and walked in to see half of the tables empty. We ended up being seated upstairs on a small table for 2, in what is normally a bar area (now vacated because of Covid precautions).
We started with an appetizer order of the well-known Kansas City burnt ends, except these burnt ends bore no resemblance to what i've enjoyed in KC on multiple visits there. Sauce was good. That's all I can say. The dish was loaded with fat, hardly crisp (as I would expect burnt ends), and wholly unsatisfactory. I should have sent it back.
My entrée was two meats with one side dish --- slow cooked brisket and sausage. The brisket also contained much too much fat, and the brisket didn't seem to have any consistency. The sausage was, in my opinion, inedible. Not at all like Texas sausage I've had in many other locations. Yich!!
My partner's chopped salad was just okay. Too much weird lettuce items. We both enjoyed a decent tasting order of fried okra.
Service by Jacoby was excellent, which rescued one star. There's no sense giving this restaurant a second chance. This was a really bad experience but for the service and the BBQ sauce itself.
Met my cousin visiting from Ohio. We had a pleasant experience, the food was just ok, the service was good, not crowded had reservations sat right down with no wait.
Great food. Fantastic service. Perfect atmosphere.
Only answered lower on service this time because it took longer than usual to get our food. They had a couple of larger parties in at same time which backed up the kitchen a bit.
Great food, service and all. What a great way to wrap up a busy week.
Last night’s bartender was great! We loved her
Great BBQ awesome atmosphere and our waiter/bartender (Blake)was outstanding.
Bbq wasn’t very hot/fresh, some of it better than others but service was good.
The food was just OK. Since we were sitting outside, the street noise from cars was a bit loud but otherwise the porch is nice for an early dinner on Saturday afternoon.
Brisket was ok but not Kansas City BBQ. Also, ribs were almost meatless and the meat was tough and chewy. The side of Jalepeno grits was really good so not a total loss of dining experience.
Drive from Frisco for our favorite bbq
We arrived to the Restaruant, and wait for 20 minutes to be seated.
They didn’t check on the app for the reservation.
Then seated we wait another 15 minutes to be attended for the first time by the waiter and it didn’t arrived to the table, so we preferred to leave the restaurant.
Unfortunately the were short in personnel of waiters.
Really nice staff - lunch is also a great value - gorgeous inside
1st time to visit. Brisket was tough, too salty and not very good. Sausage was soft and chewy inside...not very good either.
Great to find KC style barbecue in Dallas.
We booked here for a large party last minute and it turned out great. Our waiter was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and interested in our having a good experience. The food itself was to die for and they had a neat special that lets you combine a vast majority of their menu items family style. What a great experience!
Sergio and Blake made the experience. It was Friday night and you could tell they were extremely short staffed. But they were working their butts off and were still so kind and friendly.
GREAT BBQ BUT I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE SIDES AND DESSERTS!
Really enjoyed the layout of the restaurant and the menu had options and nice portions sizes. I order the collard greens which taste liked Apple Cider they were horrible. They were sent back and replaced with Mac & Cheese which taste better but not great. The half chicken lacked flavor and the brisket was dry. Good thing the BBQ sauce was delicious. The Okra was alright, we will not visit again
burnt ends are a must for an app!! like meat candy! Best okra i have ever had, whole breaded, crunchy and nicely spiced. Grilled cheese brisc sand amazing. FFries spicy crisp.
other items our table had Brisc tacos, Meat platter Turkey and Bris. Smoked chicken sand - i had a bite of every one of these and everything was amazing... cheesy grits were very different, thicker tasty delicious... cant go wrong with anything on the menu!
Service was really outstanding. My wife and I have been here many times and brought some new friends this visit. Overall everyone enjoyed the meal although there was inconsistency from plate to plate. Some ribs were significantly better than others & brisket was very tasty but again very inconsistent. We’ll all be back for sure
Nice flow and restaurant design. Awesome service and food. My server Jason was great and made my first experience one for the books. I’ll be back again.
Have been back here 4 times now. Service is always stellar and food is delicious
Service was slow, restaurant was not busy at all. Brisket was good but sliced wrong way. Definitely not Texas BBQ no pickles or onions served or any rolls
As a KC girl, I love this place. The food is amazing. They serve Boulevard Brewing products and they have burnt ends!
Ordered the competition ribs, Mac and cheese and collard greens. Ribs were cold and over sauced. Mac and cheese was dry and greens had no flavor. Ribs were comped due to temperature.

Went there for lunch. Sat in the bar area as we wanted to also watch the big screens. The food was very tasty. The server was attentive. I ordered the "Dizzy" sandwich with beans on the side. Yummy!!
Chicken and brussel sprouts were amazing. Cheddar grits were A++!
