    Sonny Bryan's Smokehouse: Macy's Galleria

    When in Texas, you must have barbeque. Though the original Sonny Bryan’s is located in Inwood, there are seven locations throughout Dallas including one right inside the Macy’s at the Galleria. At this location, I had a brisket sandwich. Sonny Bryan’s makes it easy to order. Just decide if you want your meat on a plate or in a sandwich, pick your meat, pick your veggies, and order at the counter. You get your food before you pay. Bottles of barbeque sauce are kept warm on a hot plate next to the soda fountain. The tables are covered in red and white checkers and there is a roll of paper towels in the middle. The food was incredible! The brisket was fabulous! I’m very picky when it comes to macaroni and cheese and theirs was delicious! The green bean casserole was also great! During the meal, an employee came around with free dinner rolls and they were absolutely to die for! Lunch for two was less than $20.

    Sonny Bryan's Smokehouse: Great Barbecue at Sonny Bryans

    Sonny Bryan's has been serving Barbecue since the early 1900's. They offer a wide variety of barbecue served quickly with a friendly smile.

    With the exception of the Brisket (mentioned below) everything was fantastic. Maybe it was an off day for the brisket too.

    The restaurant is clean but they share a bathroom with the building they are in. You'll need to take a quick elevator ride to get to it. The Bathroom wasn't too clean.

    Favorite Dish: I opted for a three meat combo:

    Brisket - Hard to get in Georgia. I thought it was a little tough and lacking in flavor. I wouldn't recommend it.

    Pulled Pork - Excellent! Juicy and full of flavor. I could have had a plate of this by itself.

    Smoked Sausage with Jalapeno's - Also Awesome! They make the sausage with or without Jalapeno's so you can get them either way.

    My side was a double order of Fried Okra. That's good stuff!

    Sonny Bryan's: BBQ Ribs

    by Bwana_Brown Updated Jul 15, 2003

    The restaurant has a friendly pub atmosphere with a laid back American style - serving steak and ribs since 1910. The service was fast and very good, with a great choice of main courses and side-dishes.

    Favorite Dish: This was our first serious meal of the trip (4th night on the road) so my wife and I both had the BBQ Pork Ribs - talk about good! For a side dish I had beans and potato salad while my wife had a more interesting looking onion and cucumber dish. Sonny's was able to supply my wife with a nice red house wine while I tried the local beer, a Shiner Bock.

    Sonny Bryan's Smokehouse: "Melt-in your mouth" BBQ

    by BLewJay Updated May 3, 2004

    Sonny Bryan's has roots established in Dallas since 1910 when the first restaurant was opened. Friendly service and "melt-in your mouth" BBQ is what Sonny Bryan's is all about...and it has served it's fair share of famous people (from presidents, to movie stars, to everyday people like you and I).

    Favorite Dish: We had dinner with Kodi01 and her friend Chris...lots of fun and entertaining conversation :-) For dinner, LJ selected the Chopped Brisket Sandwich (hand carved lean portion of smokehouse meat with a side of macaroni & cheese and fried okra) while I had the Sliced Brisket Plated Meal (1/2 lb. lean portion hand carved smokehouse meat with a side of macaroni & cheese and potato salad).

    Delicious Texas BBQ

    This restraunt started in 1910 in Oak Cliff and now the legend has spread nationwide.

    They have bbq beef and chicken and veggie plates. The sauce is fabulous, the best bbq in TX.

    Favorite Dish: BBQ, beans, potatoe salad, coleslaw, mac n cheese.

    The family pack cost $23.99 and feed up to 4.
