Wish a manager would have come out to ask the group enjoying the basketball game to please quiet down. I love games as well but it is a restaurant not a dive bar or bar for that matter. I could not hear our waiter and it was just beyond ridiculous with the yells from the group and trying to have a conversation. I had a 7:15 reservation and when I inquired about moving our seats we could not be accommodated.

During a previous visit I received free drink refills on diet coke. This time I was charged $3.50 each time it was refilled. Although the food was pretty good I feel like I was taken advantage of and will not be returning in the near future. Bill was over $50 for 2 sandwiches, and drinks. A poor value by most measures.

Always loved this place and have been missing it since moving to.Jersey. Came to the city to treat my mom on her bday for lunch. The restaurant wasn't too busy at all but we had to wait a long time to even order our food. Sticky wings did not disappoint but my favorite blue Hawaii drink didn't live up to what I remember.

Reservations mean absolutely nothing at this venue. We waited over 30 minutes for a 6pm table, and parties that walked in after us, were seated-and they didn’t have reservations.
If it weren’t for the fact that I kept complaining about not being seated, they would have disregarded us.
We were celebrating a bit, and running on metered time. NEVER AGAIN! Go someplace else for this type of food. Go to Clinton Hall, which I wish I would’ve thought of!

The food is always great I never had complaints but the atmosphere is too much, table to close to eachother. I could enjoy the next table conversation, or them in mine.

They said they only took reservations for groups of 20 and I explained to them I had reservations on Opentable when the girl proceeded to tell me that it didn’t make a difference. Until I said I wanted to speak to the manager they were planning to have us wait until our name was called from a waiting list. This restaurant definitely should not be on Opentable. The bathroom was filthy! Will NOT be visiting again!!

Our group from a former job get togther monthly to catch up on things. I ordeted the beef ribs and shrimps and it was so good! We had crabcakes for appetizers and shrimp that to was delicious. It was on the noisy side so it was hard to hear our conversations. All in all it was a good night!

Good waiter who didn’t hover but took care of our requests. The food was very tasty. Had the sticky wings which we always order and they were perfect and juicy. My chicken Caesar was excellent. Best chicken ever on a Caesar! My friend had her favorite beef ribs and loved her meal. As I write my review, I’m thinking how much I did enjoy my visit.

I went to Dallas BBQ two years ago and it was good but I came back this year and I have to say I’m pretty disappointed. Food was greasy, portions are big but not worth it, service is ok.....

This place is gross. Food was horrible and almost inedible. The kitchen, as seen as I was walking into the restroom, was filthy. Servers just hang around and are not attentive and managers are nowhere to be found. Surprised this place is still in operation.

Dallas BBQ is a chain, nothing fancy, and my ribs were smothered in sauce presumably from a jar, but this was the only place we could find open past 11 on the Upper East Side. I thought NY was the city that never sleeps. Dallas BBQ, at least, has a very late bedtime.

Very convenient location. Been here before and thought it was good. This time though I was disappointed. My ribs were very chewy not as tender as I would have liked. Very difficult to pull apart and even cut apart

This place has been one of my favorite restaurant for almost 25 years. I used to go there when I was young resident for internal medicine at Cornell. The concept and foods and service all are very stable.

La comida la trajeron rápido. Pedimos doble rack de ribs y eran malísimas. Casi no tenían carne. Lo poco que tenian de carne era chiclosa, fea y plagada de salsa barbacoa en exceso. Las papas eran pésimas. No lo recomiendo en absoluto. La margarita aprobada. Encima salió carísimo. Haganse un favor y no vayan.

Great food, reasonable prices but the noise level is loud depending on the day, time and crowd. Therefore trying to talk, you will need to raise up your voice. Overall, it’s a good place to chill with family and friends.

Excellent food. Outstanding customer service by server Chantal. My family just moved to the area from South Carolina and she was extremely personable, thoroughly explaining the menu, offering recommendations for appetizers and dinner and checking in frequently to ensure we are enjoying the food and experience. Chantal gave my family a great first experience. Thank you!
