Dallas Observer's Description

Mama Faye's is a little barbecue joint in Deep Ellum that has everything going for it: free meters out front on weekdays, Perfect Ten Massage parlor next door so you can make a variety of hilarious (to you) smoked sausage jokes and zero people in line inside, so your food comes out fast and you can sit wherever the hell you want. Inside, there are approximately a bajillion booths to choose from and you're hit so hard with the smell of smoked meats that the clothes you're wearing will forever smell of delicious, delicious dead cows and pigs. Soak it in. The super-sauced sausage sandwich at Mama Faye's is made with regular white bread. Not Texas toast, not a hamburger bun, not toasted, just sausage links plus sauce on regular white bread. It tasted great -- perfect heat, nice smoke, spicy sausage.

    An authentic down-home family BBQ eatery in the heart of Deep Ellum. The meats are wonderfully smoked, the sides are plentiful and the desserts are naughty good. Definitely recommend!

    Good Ole' BBQ is here. Slap down some smoked ribs, savory-'n-sweet baked beans, and douse it in their 3 generation old secret sauce.

    Try the peach cobbler, you will thank me later.

  • Blake B. on 09/12/13

    Get the sliced brisket with hot barbecue sauce. And BYOB.

  • Steve F. on 03/03/11

    Try the Chop Beef and Hot Links for your two meat special.

    This place was empty, but it was 2:30. BBQ was good and potato salad was great.
