This will probably be the last food post I do for New York. I would talk about The Halal Guys, but there’s only so much I can write about them. Basically, it’s chicken over rice and a helluva lot of special sauce. It’s soo good and so cheap, and it will fill you up!
Anyway, the last place I’ll be writing about is Dallas BBQ. They have several branches, but I visited the one in Brooklyn and can I just say it was the bomb diggity.
I actually visited twice during my stay in New York because it was just that good. It wasn’t too far from where my auntie lives, so it was a really convenient place to have lunch/dinner. I first went there with my cousin and his girlfriend, and I fell in love.
The portions are big and the cocktails are so delicious. The first time around I ordered Steak and Shrimp: NY Cut Sirloin served with crispy shrimp and onion ringlets. So good! I loved how the steak was done, and the portion was so huge that I was full for the rest of the day. I really liked the shrimp, as well. I actually ate a lot of shrimp whilst in NY, haha. The salad was crisp and fresh.
I also ordered one of their famous frozen drinks – Texas Size Bulldog. You make it a bulldog by adding a 7oz Corona. I stayed looking a hot ass drunk mess for the rest of the day – so glad I didn’t throw up on the ride we went on at Coney Island.
We were also given blue, white and red cupcakes after the meal because it was Memorial Day weekend. So delicious and cute 🙂
Our waitress was super friendly and was surprised when I started speaking because of my accent. I got a lot of that when I was in NY. Our food came out quickly and service was really good.
The second time I went there was with my two aunties, and they treated me to a goodbye meal just before I left to come back to London. It was a choice between Applebee’s and Dallas BBQ, but my uncle had already warned me against Applebee’s, so I settled for what I already loved.
This time I ordered big! I went for Dinner of the Day: Sirloin Steak, Crispy Shrimp, 1/4 Rotisserie Chicken with yellow rice and corn bread. Good Lord in heaven, how you blessed me. I was determined to finish the whole meal, and I nearly dropped when I did. It was so delicious. The two different meals I ordered from Dallas are definitely ones I would recommend you try if you get a chance to go!
I went for a different cocktail as well and got Patrón Sunrise, which came with an extra shot of Patrón. Again, a hot ass drunk mess trying to hold it together and act like the responsible young lady I am in front of my aunties. Damn.
We also got given cupcakes, which were pink and yellow this time. Still delicious and cute!
If you’re looking for a boozy lunch/dinner, huge portions and good food, then you definitely have to head on down to Dallas BBQ! The atmosphere is really nice and the service is good. Prices are reasonable, too.
