We mentioned Dave's trip to C.T.'s Real Deal BBQ in South Dallas yesterday, where he dove into some mean brisket and fried catfish -- and you'll find the rest of those shots in this week's Dish slideshow.
Herein you'll also find dishes fit for carnal temptation sandwiched between two unsettling eating contests (one of which featured several brave souls from the Observer). Jump for more of the month's best food porn here on City of Ate.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
