The Slow Bone Barbecue
Dallas, TX 75207
Top pick: This might be counterintuitive, but the side dishes are the stars here, along with some of the city’s best fried chicken. Order sides strategically, preferably in a group, because six or seven of them are great and your tray won’t have room for them all.
The downside: Between us, the brisket just isn’t as richly flavorful as the best of the best.
