I give this a satisfactory only because it's par for the course on what you can expect from bar food establishments. The TGI Fridays, the Applebees ( actually Applebees rocks the competition these days!) the Outbacks, the Chilis, etc... you can't complain if your steak is a piece of rubber. This is date night territory, singles perching with a ripoff drink.

I have been a long time takeout customer, but I have eaten in a time or two. This location has a huge window wall on 167th and in the winter it's freezing! In the summer they over compensate with the AC so it's still freezing! Plus city buses make a turn right on that corner - a New York news story is waiting to happen about a bus turning the place into a drive thru. I have no complaints about the service - they are overrun at peak times like everywhere else. The staff does their best to be pleasant but it's bound to vary since labor turn over is so high in the restaurant industry. After workday at the New York Presbyterian Hospital across the street, I call in my standard order. The huge wings are the best takeout deal, and I throw in the crispy shrimp and beat it out of there, hopping back across the bridge to Dallas BBQ-less North Jersey before the condensation from the piping hot wings make them soggy. This is a half step above fast food, with the usual expensive frozen drinks.

Simply put: this was the worst barbecue I had ever eaten at a restaurant. The wings were huge (the only "plus") but you needed vice-like fingers to separate them so you can actually take a neat bite. In the process, you will likely need a bib to keep the food from splattering all over you. My wife ordered the hot dog and it looked like a burnt log. The main thing this place has going for it is that it's setup to accommodate large groups (upstairs) and the portions are pretty large. The quality and taste, however, are poor and it's nowhere near authentic. Another huge demerit had to be given because when the server brought the food out, we couldn't understand what he was saying and he put the wrong orders in front of a few people. When 2 people in my party noticed their orders were switched, the waitress told the kitchen manager about it. He came out promptly and then picked up the 2 plates of food and...wait for it...SWITCHED THEM, giving one guest a plate of food that was already nibbled on by the other. He didn't even ask if that would be ok (not that it would have been) & not asking made it inexcusable. The waitress was mortified (and you can only imagine how we felt) and was very sweet and patient. The manager, too, came out and apologized profusely. Still, we weren't comped anything nor was our bill discounted a red cent. As we walked out, we were all tempted to tell the scores of people waiting to get in to do themselves a favor and run away. Alas, we didn't. If you want good BBQ (by NY standards anyway) go over to Virgil's or Brother Jimmy's, as my experiences there have always been pleasant if not very, very good.

Pros: Can seat large groups

Cons: The food and service

Why call yourself a BBQ when you do not have a smoker to do the actual work. Putting smoky BBQ sauce on an oven roasted rib is not real BBQ.

This is not the type of place that you go for fine dining, but it is a fun, kid friendly place that is cheap. The food is decent, the portions are big and there is fast service.

I used to go to Dallas BBQ all the time when I was in nursing school. At the time I was a vegetarian and a dinner of house salad and baked potato was delicious. I am no longer a vegetarian however. I decided to indulge recently on a dinner of a hamburger and onion rings. I thought I was going to be sick. the food was beyond greasy. The fried items were not even crispy - just limp and greasy. I downed 2 margaritas (which were delicious!) but even being drunk did not make me enjoy the food. I will not be going back to this particular branch of Dallas.

The ONLY good thing about this place is it's weekday lunch special: for less than $7, diners can buy a 1/4 rotisserie chicken, a side of rice OR a baked potato, and a chintzy glass of tea or soft drink. But don't expect much more. There's hardly anyone who acknowledges your presence if -- heaven forbid -- you should desire a refil after chomping down on some tough, dry ribs. The fried vegetable tempura isn't bad, but not worth the wait staff's attitude. This certainly isn't close to the Dallas BBQ incarnation that once existed near NYU.

Pros: Good fried vegetable tempura, decent daily lunch special

Cons: Apparently the wait staff is recruited from methadone clinics
