Soup Man - Dallas

Has anyone tried this place out at NorthPark? This is the famous place the "Soup Nazi" on Seinfeld was modeled after. I just found that they have soups...could add this to the post for best soup in Dallas. I have read that they still retain the NYC pricing for their soups. Could anyone vouch for the greatness of their soups?

  1. I've tried the chicken gumbo and shrimp bisque. Thought it was on par with the refrigerated soups you can get in the supermarket.

    It's fine if you're craving a hot soup at the mall, but I wouldn't make it a destination.

      He just opened a location here in Hoboken and I was not impressed at all, and the prices were absolutely ridiculous. They don't have the prices posted and then hit you with quite a case of sticker shock. I'd rather make my own.

        Soup was good but not amazing. Price was outrageous. I'd rather go have lunch at La Duni or Luna de Noche.

            I don't remember what I paid, but it did come with bread, fruit and a miniature Mr. Goodbar.

            I have seen packages of his soups at the Albertsons on McKinney Ave for around 9 bucks for what looks like a serving for two.

    2. Outrageous, absolutely ridiculous prices for supermarket soup. Sounds like a winning combination.

        Amen! With all the pretense swimming around Dallas, they will probably hit it big like Campsi's and their dreck!

          Campisi's has been here for a good 60+ years, so that's not at all a good comparison. Sure, Campisi's has stayed the same and the rest of the world has caught up and passed it by, but I find it very strange that you are trying to compare a business that has been in Dallas since the 1940s to a business that has been here a few months. It's fine not to like Campisi's; it's not my favorite Italian either, but it's not soup, and it's never been bad - just not gourmet. It doesn't apply to this thread.

      2. If you're looking for good soup, go to King Noodle or First Chinese BBQ, both of which are at the intersection of Main and Greenville.

        Yum.
