Sonny Bryan's is hands-down the best BBQ I've had in the Dallas area. They have several locations in the metroplex and their food is consistently great. The atmosphere is casual and fun -- a nice place to take out-of-towners who want some real Texas BBQ without it costing an arm and a leg. We have especially enjoyed their to-go value/family meals. You can call it in ahead of time and then just drop by to pick it up. Go for the sliced brisket if you're having a hard time picking from the menu. As far as side items are concerned, I'm a fan of the mashed potatoes, green bean cassarole, and BBQ beans (though I've not yet run across anything terribly disappointing on the menu.
