This place has been around forever. Food is very good. Prices average. Sauce is heated and superb. This place has been kind of a dump forever, too, but that's it's charm. They used to close early in the afternoon when they ran out of meat,...More

This is a great hole in the wall BBQ place, with the best BBQ in Dallas. Sonny Bryan has multiple locations around town, but this is the best location. The rib dinner is to die for.

There are lots of Sonny's this is the best one. (On Inwood) Feels like you're being served out of an old house. BBQ is amazing, staff is fast and friendly!

Recommended by both our hotel van driiver and a friend who is a local. This is the original building for this place. Very unique and old Texas. In one building you order and eat in another building surrounded with garage doors contaning wooden tables. They...More

The original Sonny Bryan's smokehouse! Traditional place in Dallas, with great Texas BBQ and good draft beer.
