Smoke Daddy's Review of Sonny Bryans Smokehouse | "Show us your pits"

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Sonny Bryans Smokehouse

MAIN FARE:Sonny Bryans Crew

  • Brisket: Been sitting a while, but still moist. Pulls apart in chunks - not shreds … and not melting in my mouth - yet. Very good. A little chewy on the finish.
  • Spare Rib: There's just something about a pork rib for breakfast… crunchy exterior with nice spice and smoke; comes off the bone with a little tug. The meat is a little chewy - maybe cooked just a tad too hot?
  • Sausage: Nicely spiced; peppery, but not overpowered. A little too finely ground & tightly packed - near store-bought consistency

OTHER FARE:Sonny Bryans Pit

  • Coleslaw: Sweet with poppy seeds - I like it.
  • Beans: Baked, not pinto. There's a sweet & sour thing goin' on here. Very soft beans. Nice.
  • Potato Salad: Run of the mill, but with big chunks of taters

ATMOSPHERE:

  • The original location - It’s a shack and I LOVE it!!!Sonny Bryans Wood
  • Nothing like trying to squeeze into these tiny school desks;
  • Nice folks first thing in the morning (10 am)
  • Line starting to form by 11am - Get here early! 'Open 10-2, or until the food runs out.'
  • Classic. Sauce served in Corona bottles and kept warm by hot plate.
  • A true 'joint' inside the Dallas city limits - a real jewel!
