I had a great meal. I was from out of town and walked here from my hotel, it was worth it plus I ate too much and needed to walk it off. The beautiful girl behind the counter was awesome as well.

What a shame that whoever owns this ghastly local chain has besmirched the legend of the founder. I'm sure it lives off ignorant tourists at the Four Seasons. If you're from out of town stay away. A plate of chopped brisket and "pulled" pork was horrible. The brisket was bland and had no hint of smoke, with an odd braised... More

Stopped at Sonny Bryan's for a late business lunch with 4 people. The food was very good and service was fast. I had pulled pork and brisket. Not sure what everyone else had but they were all happy. I would go back.

I can't recommend this place. After spending all day moving, my friends and I were starving. We went here and were disappointed that we did. The place smells good from the outside but it's what's on the inside that counts right?

This is by far the worst chain BBQ I've ever had. I spent 20 bucks on myself alone, and threw 90 percent of the food away :/ I'm giving 2 stars due to the people being nice at least. Otherwise it would be a 1.

Good location and nice atmosphere inside the store. Visited on a Monday evening, place was not very busy. There were 4 young ladies working ( cashier, kitchen, a young lady taking care of dishes and tables and the manager ), they all were very professional and super friendly. Store was very clean. Food looked and tasted very good, ordered the... More

Ate here during lunch break at a conference in a neighboring hotel. Prices good, food good, staff very friendly. I'd come back again!

Average barbecue at best but not for Texas. Smoked perhaps five minutes, meat not very tasty or flavourful. Sides are strictly ok only, almost grocery store bought quality. Tabletops are worn and show signs of damage from knifes also something was up with the male toilet as no one would go in and guys were using the girls bathroom.

Thank Dale J
