1.) No chain. Chains suck.
2.) A place where the Dept. of Health doesn't drop by too often. We don't need them interfering with goodness.
Haven't hit BBQ a lot lately in my travels but I have been passing by this place - Hickory House BBQ & Grill in Dallas - for years and never stopped by until the other day.
Hickory House BBQ & Grill
600 S. Riverfront
Dallas, Texas 75207
The place has been open since 1952, and has a large menu ranging from breakfast to burgers, to BBQ to enchiladas.
The owner stressed that I should have ordered the burger, but instead I took the chopped sandwich with beans and fries.
Two of the employees really stressed I should have ordered the brisket, or the chicken fried steak. The chopped sandwich is good. Very good. Would have preferred a little more sauce on it, but the star of this sandwich is the bun.
It tastes like it's covered in oil or butter and it makes for a very sweet tasting BBQ sandwich.
The beans are sweet; even my 2-year-old daughter liked them
Fries? Standard. Good. Not great.
I will come back for the burger.
A good place to stop and eat for not a lot of money.
