10/15/2014Sonny Bryan's Smokehouse - West End
We ate at Sonny Bryans in the West End while visiting the King Tut exhibit at the DMA, this location is a convenient quick train ride from the Museum. Located in quaint area of restaurants in Dallas, the West End, Sonny Bryans has the best pork ribs I ever had. Try the big rib man plate, around 12 ribs for 18USD, but way more than enough food for 2, so you can share. It comes with 2 hearty sides, a salad, fresh rolls, and a hearty portion of pickles, sliced onions jalapenos. Sit by the window, you get to look down at all the street traffic and passersby, also has outdoor seating but it was too windy that day. Excellent onion rings, a must have and try the turkey and brisket. The smoked sausage was mediocre. Service was excellent. The lavatory is located in the basement, accessible thru a lift. Sonny's has multiple locations, and when we asked around for the best bbq, Sonny's was recommended again and again.
Beautiful and Cozy... This is not a place that will rush to make incredible food... You can tell that everything is scratch made... Yes, everything... If you are looking for quality service, incredible food and an intimate time with friends and family, then I highly recommend this place. My wife is still talking about how great my entree was... Southern Style Shrimp En Croute (shrimp in Herb butter wrapped in scratch made pastry). If I was in Death Row, this would be one if the items on my platter. Yes, I'm a Foodie!I saw the previous review and I wanted to say that on the menus it stats... That if you leave the tip section open on the credit card receipt, it will add 20%... Why write a bad review, because you didn't see it posted and/or didn't want to tip someone... Own it... Write in $0, if that's what you want or tell them what they did wrong...
Excellent fried chicken which is far superior to the big-name places. They also have tons of things which aren't on the online menu like sandwiches, catfish, fried livers & *corn fritters* which are 2die4 good! BIG portions of side orders like spicy rice (yummy!), fries & mashed potatoes. The only downside is they're often busy and it's not uncommon to wait, but their food is well worth any minimal delay. Actually, I was stunned to see they'd received two such low ratings here, so 4 stars from me is probably more realistic. Still, we've eaten at Williams 10-15 times and barring the occasional wait, I cannot recall EVER being disappointed with the food.
For those that think breakfast is easy and that a chef could not make much of a difference, come try crossroads diner. Tom Fleming (yes, the Tom Fleming famous chef that has ran numerous extravagant resteraunts all over the world) has decided to open a breakfast and lunch-only restauraunt so he can have quality time with his family, and the dishes he serves are wonderful, affordable, and have every bit as much of Tom's talent thrown into these meals as he had when he was running some of the best resteraunts in the country. The pancakes are the best in the world, the eggs benedict is to die for, and everything else is excellent too. You have to try this.
I when to soulmans yesterday and brought two sandwiches round beef slice and sauage. got the sandwiches to go, on our way back home I open up and my beef sandwiches was full of fat, yes fat, I waste my time and money for that sandwiches never again will I eat at this soulmans I don't like giving money away, I want good food and not fat. if that is what you serve then I I want be back and nor will anyone I tell how sorry the food was. what a waste, customers are your business if you don't car about them you will not be in business much longer, maybe that is why there was no one there buying the food they too have received the say.
