BBQ North Dallas - 635 and 75 area

scjohann Mar 7, 2010 05:33 PM

Looking for a mid-priced BBQ restaurant in North Dallas or maybe convenient off 75 for dinner on Tuesday night. All the suggestions I can get would be greatly appreciated.

My boss is coming in town and he made two requests for dinners, steak and BBQ. On Monday we are going to be near NE Mall in Hurst/North Richland Hills and there's a Texas Land and Cattle nearby. So that will take care of steak.

On Tuesday I'd like to find a good BBQ place for dinner. Thinking maybe Spring Creek....

I know chains are cop-outs but I'd rather not risk a 'great-one-night/horrible-the-next' type of place.

If there's a better steak (or even BBQ) restaurant in Richland Hills I'd love to hear suggestions on that.

Thanks

    Spring Creek BBQ for sure. At the SW corner of LBJ and Preston Road. Chain or not, it's pretty damn good.

      There's another on northbound 75 and Beltline/Main. Mt preference is the sausage or ribs when I'm there... and of course get the fresh rolls instead of the ones they hand you at the counter.

      There's also a TL&C at 75 and Spring Valley if you end up swapping locations.

      I'm going to assume you're speaking of the TxLC location in Bedford roughly at 183/121. I'd suggest driving another 4-5 miles north on 121 (exit Hall-Johnson, then u-turn back to to the SB service road) and enjoy J.R.'s Steakhouse. The prices are higher end than TxLC, but so is the quality.

        Spring Creek BBQ, that's just laughable people....

        I'd rather go to Subway than eat at any BBQ place in the parameters you laid out...
        Oh, and Texas Land and Cattle is terrible tool.

          I swear the sausage they serve at Spring Creek is Eckrich.

          I would find a Dickey's and go there. It is a better option than Spring Creek.

            I have to join the bandwagon on this one, Spring Creek is terrible.

              I'd rather gnaw off my arm than eat at Dickey's. Talk about bottom of the bbq chain barrel. I skip this garbage whenever someone chooses this for a company event.

          Seriously, Bone Daddy's does decent bbq. Or at least it's not terrible... And I'd certainly rather go there than Subway, if only for the scenery. 75 and Spring Valley. 'Course, depending on your boss, it may or may not be appropriate.

            X2 for Bone Daddy's. The food may suck but the scenery more than compensates.

              They make chicken wings the way my brother makes them. Whole, grilled doused in grilled on sauce and extra sloppy. Delicious. The atmospheric conditions are healthy, and the beers are huge.

            If you and your boss are serious carnivores with serious appetites and don't want "steak" specifically, there's Boi Na Braza - similar to Texas de Brazil - also 121 north of TxLC.

            If this is more $$ than you are looking to spend and you are looking at alternatives to TxLC, in the immediate area of NE Mall is a Logan's Roadhouse (820) and Outback Steakhouse (121/183 - whichever you call it) just east, one(?) exit of NE mall.

              Ho Hum. Mods at work.

              I like pie.

              +1 @ CocoaNut Boi -- Na Braza is nice.

              I'm sorry but there is no really good BBQ in that area. Spring Creek is awful. And I would not waste my money in a Dickeys. On the whole BBQ in the Dallas to Plano area is a wash, well maybe with the exception of Bone Daddys.

              Also personally I would rather go to a Saltgrass than TLC.

                I must chime in and agree about Spring Creek BBQ.
                DEF said it best:

                "laughable".

                As is their Tex-Mex joint in NRH. I forget the name, but it, too, is laughable.

                Well just to report back...we did go to TX L& C. Not terrible. In fact decent and the server was attentive. So have a long day of meetings and waiting 'til after 9pm to eat it was good food.

                The second day he changed his mind and want seafood. First thought was Pappadeaux's but we were meeting up with some from North Plano so we went Rockfish. Food was fantastic. I really need to go here more often. The snapper special was excellent.

                Thanks for everyone's suggestions. I think the girlfriend and I will try a few of them.
