Dallas Observer's Description

Peggy Sue BBQ may reside in tony Snider Plaza, but it’s definitely more down-home than Uptown. The waitresses will probably call you “honey,” and you might even spot one of the city’s ladies-who-lunch with barbecue sauce on her face (gasp!). Open since 1989, the decor hasn’t changed a bit, with vinyl tablecloths and plenty of Texas shtick like horseshoes and lone stars. The brisket is of the lean variety, and there are also dry-rubbed ribs, pulled pork, sausage and smoked turkey breast and chicken. The house barbecue sauce comes in both spicy and mild incarnations; sides of green beans and corn may come from a can, but onion rings are scratch-made and sweet-potato tots are standouts. There are also Frito pie, chicken-fried steak and a salad bar, but whatever you do, save room for a “famous” fried pie in flavors like chocolate, apricot or apple. Pro tip: Barbecue sandwiches are extra delicious when ordered on Empire Bakery’s jalapeño cheese bread.

    I hadn't eaten all day, so I ordered up an immense meat feast. I ended up with a three-meat Full Meal with fatty sliced brisket, sausage, and pulled pork, with Sweet Potater Tots and Hoppin' John on the side.

    The Sweet Potater Tots are just what they sound like: tater tots made from sweet potatoes. My tots were crispy and sweet. The Hoppin' John, however, needs a little more... More >>

    The Park Cities may not be known for getting their hands dirty, but Peggy Sue BBQ's decades-old tradition of fine ribs and more proves otherwise. [Eater 38 Member]
