Yes, the name is embarrassing to say aloud. Yes, Billy himself, the restaurant’s fictional Wild West saloon-keeper mascot, is modeled on the Most Interesting Man in the World, but without being even slightly interesting. But this fancified all-frills saloon in Victory Park, with more and better wines than anyone in “Tombstone” ever dreamed of, serves up pretty killer renditions of skillet cornbread, Texas red chili, hot fried quail and summer okra succotash. Some of the dishes get over-complicated, but others, like the big-boned pork chop, are over-the-top in a good way. After Knife and Town Hearth, this is the next-best place to take out-of-town guests who ask for a stereotypically glamorous Dallas experience.
