Lest you think of DeSoto as one of those ubiquitous Dallas suburbs with the usual chain dining choices, Top 5 BBQ will disabuse you of the notion. The small restaurant adjacent to DeSoto's City Hall is cranking out brisket, ribs, sausage and pulled pork that are among the state's best, all bound together in the unique flavor of Top 5's complex spice rub. Our praise doesn't end with the meats; all of the sides we've tried are top shelf, especially the french fries that are dusted with that addictive rub. Don't overlook the barbecue-themed specials, either. Top 5 even fries their own tortilla chips in-house to make barbecue nachos. It's that kind of creativity and execution that keeps us coming back to DeSoto time and again.
