I'm heading to Dallas in a few weeks and was hoping that someone could tell me the two best BBQ restaurants in Dallas. I'll be staying in the vicinity of the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport, but will have a rental car to get around a bit. I only ask for two spots as I'm traveling with someone else and they aren't into Q as much as I am. Only going to be there 2 1/2 days.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
Unfortunately, Dallas isn't the greatest place in the world for BBQ, but there are a few spots. I'm not sure why there isn't much great BBQ in Dallas, but it seems the best BBQ in the state is in the Hill Country.
Here are a few:
Although I've never been myself (the hours are a bit odd), there is a place called North Main BBQ in Euless, TX which is about 5-10 minutes from the airport. I've been told by numerous people it is a great place for some good Q. They are open on Fridays and Saturdays from 11:00AM-9:00PM and Sundays from 11:00AM-4:00PM. Address is 406 N Main St, Euless, TX 76039. Hopefully you're in town when they're open.
Aside from there, there is a place in Coppell, TX called Hard Eight (a personal favorite of mine). It is also very close to the airport, again, around 5-10 minutes away. The address is 688 Freeport Pkwy, Coppell, TX 75019. They are open on a little more normal schedule. Mon-Thurs 10:30AM-9:00PM, Fri-Sat 10:30AM-10:00PM, Sun 10:30AM-3:00PM.
And then there is Sonny Bryan's. They have a location in Las Colinas which is about 10 minutes from the airport. 4030 N MacArthur Blvd, Irving, TX 75038. Open daily from 11:00AM-8:30PM.
Hopefully that is a good starter for suggestions. If you try North Main BBQ, let me know how it is.
