At one time in North Texas the name Sonny Bryan's name dished out a pretty decent spread of Texas BBQ. It seems of late, at least for this location the food had been surpassed by other smokehouses in the area. While the pulled pork is still pretty decent and the fresh hot buns are wonderful, the rest of the menu... More

I try and stay away from BBQ places that are chain restaurants but Sonny's is really good. Everything I get there is good and they have lots of sides to choose from. If you get delivery with them (uber) you can order a gallon of tea and a dozen rolls. They also have cobbler. Love BBQ places that don't forget... More

I was very impressed with this barbecue chain on Campbell Road in Richardson,Texas. I'll start off by telling you that I'm very picky with my BBQ. I got the three meat combination plate, three-quarter pound. Brisket, pulled pork and ham. It comes with two sides so I got macaroni and cheese and coleslaw. The sides were honestly awesome. Between the... More

We visited after reading reviews on another site...will not visit again. We were excited about tasting Texas BBQ but was disappointed. The side dishes tasted like prepackaged food. We thought it would've been home cooked. I guess we should have known better since it's a local chain restaurant. BBQ bone in chicken was under cooked with soft pink flesh; pulled... More

For the past 22 years, every time I visit Dallas, Sonny Bryan's is good for at least one meal. After being in Austin and San Antonio, it was time for some good BBQ. Sonny Bryan's delivered. The brisket was lean, melted in my mouth. The sauce is "oh so good". Looking forward to my next visit.

Monday and Wednesday lunch specials are great deals, with meat, a side, and a drink, as well as their great rolls. I like their turkey and their green bean casserole. This is a "fast casual" bbq place, where you order and then pick up your food at a window when they call your name. But, if you're a regular, they'll... More

I go to Sonny Bryans at least once a week every week for lunch. I get the sausage and my wife gets the turkey. Both are really good. The sauce is kept on a warmer and it is also very good. They have the best rolls ever. A few years ago Spring Creek Barbecue had the best rolls and people... More

Their side dishes are better than the main items - it used to be both were really good but not any more. The "dirty pickle self serve bar" needs to be investigated by the health department. The new people running this restaurant do not have the same ability to provide the great bar-b-q experience that was once the hallmark of... More
