  • If you want a cheese burger, fries, and a cold beer go to the Angry Dog in
    Deep Elum.  Be sure to buy the hat or T-Shirt.  The place is legendary.

    Al's Hamburgers in North Arlington (FM 157) is the place for a great burger...the double double (double meat and cheese) is fantastic.

  • Having lived down in this area for a little over a year now, maybe I can throw my 2 cents in on this BBQ discussion!

    David's BBQ - western side of Arlington - has one of the best sliced brisket sandwiches I've ever had. Great BBQ baked beans, but don't expect to find any good pulled pork

    Spring Creek - Cooper street, south of stadium - sliced brisket is good, as is the turkey and sausage (both regular and spicy), but nothing really stands out as THE item to get. They do make their own yeast rolls from scratch and they are really good.

    Hard Eight BBQ - located in Coppell, about 20 miles north of Arlington - good pit BBQ with a large selection of meats/sides. The brisket is usually a little dry, but everything has a good authentic smoked taste. I love the jalapeno sweet corn and jalapeno beans they have. Could be a little pricey because they charge according to the weight of the food on your tray.

    Take it for what its worth!

    That is all.
  • #5404 by younghog on 30 Sep 2010
  • OK  I forgot all about North Main.  Hard 8 is better but they charge by the pound so it can get expensive.  North Main is GREAT and it's all you can eat for like 10-12 bucks.  Cash only.  Ribs, brisket, chicken, sausage, pork...it's all good.  Very good value and very good food and close to Arlington.  It's right off 183.


    They take cc now and serve beer.. If u care for that..

  • Spring Creek BBQ on the east side of I-69/75 in North Dallas/Plano area is DA BOMB!! Best this side of Austin.

    Oh, kudos to dude who beat me to it. BTW, we got Ruth'sChris in Rogers already, but there isn't BBQ in NWA that's better than Spring Creek in Dallas or my favorite Ironworks BBQ in Austin. Bomb Diggity brisket and ribs, omg it almost is worth the trip to Dallas JUST for Spring Creek. lol


    Spring Creek in Mesquite sux, brisket was quite tough, ribs the same.  I try to stay away from the chains for good que.

  • It's nothing fancy, but to cure your hair-of-the-dog needs. Visit any Fuzzy's. Beer with chips and hot sauce in the morning fixes ANYTHING.
  • #5407 by GuitarBoy on 30 Sep 2010
  •  I agree with many of the choices here....Gloria's and Snuffers are both awesome off of Greenville. Campisis's Egyptian room is great for Italian. I have to add Pappadeux's to the list of pappas restaurants for seafood and Fogo de Chao is awesome.
  • #5408 by Sammich on 30 Sep 2010
  • BBQ: Hard 8 BBQ in Copell is where it's at
    Steakhouse: Papas Bros (Dez Bryant found it $55k good)
    Mexican: The Blue Goose (Greenville, Addison, Highland Village, Plano)
    Plain Awesome Food: Kennys Woodfire Grill off Beltline in Addison

    I second the Hard 8 (short drive from the Airport!) and Papas Bros, but I'll take Joe T Garcia's in the Ft Worth stockyards over any mexican joint out there.  Order a pitcher of margaritas, you won't be sorry.
  • #5409 by DallasHogFan on 01 Oct 2010
  • Joe T's has always been a little over rated to me, foodwise. I know I'll prob get slaughterd for saying that,  but never been that impressed. The patio, however, is awesome. Its a great place to drink and hang out, but its slightly about El Chico in food quality IMHO.

  • Razzoos is a great CAJUN restaurant.

  • #5411 by Silence O the Hams on 01 Oct 2010
  • I freakin' love UJ's!  Ate there last night and am going to again tonight.  Any one of them are good, Grapevine, Allen etc.  The O.G. is in Dallas on Lemon St.  Take a gun if you go to that one.

    Went to Hard 8 twice last year.  Definitely a stop you need to take

  • AYSM???  Texas has the best barbecue in the nation.  I live in NWA and mourn the fact that I cannot get good barbecue here.

    Are you from Texas? I ask because only texans think they have the best BBQ. I have eaten good brisket and sausage, but, it's almost impossible to get a pulled or chopped PORK BBQ anywhere in Texas. I ordered a beef sandwich and told them I wanted slaw on the sandwich.....she said nobody ever asks for slaw on a BBQ here. Then they charged me a dollar extra for the slaw!!!
  • #5414 by onceanlsufan on 01 Oct 2010
  • Since I tend to be on the cheaper side of things ....

    I like El Finix for Mexican ... Salt Grass Steak House for Steak .. Papadeauxs on Central Expressway is always good for seafood, and you can split a plate with someone there is so much food .... and my favorite when I lived in Dallas was a dump called the Awe Shucks Oster Bar on Greenville Ave .. but I don't know it is still open .. that was some 25 years ago.
  • #5415 by bobetty on 01 Oct 2010
  • I've heard Saltgrass Steakhouse is good - also Humperdink's across from Six Flags for a good sports bar.

    That's because Texas is a BEEF state.  I never even heard of pulled pork until I moved to Louisiana, and that's about all I find worth eating here in AR.  Pork is Memphis BBQ.  BEEF is TEXAS BBQ. 

    Tip: ... when asking for brisket, request it come from the fatty end ... it will melt in your mouth.  I had some here in Conway at the Whole Hog last weak ... requested the fatty end ... it was the best I've had since moving here.

  • Saltgrass is good for a chain.  Of course almost anything that is good becomes a chain eventually.

    I don't post here much and was wondering why I cant use the quote feature?  It says im not allowed in that area or something like that?  And do you have to do the letters, spell arkansas and spell red every reply?
  • #5419 by FraggleHog on 01 Oct 2010
  • I second humperdinks. Usually good drink specials, they brew their own beer (I think). Good sports bar as well.

    Yes, I am from Texas.  The first time I went to McClard's in Hot Springs, I was APPALLED when the sandwich arrived with slaw all over it.  Gross.

    Pappadeaux (Arlington)

    Every time Ive been to Dallas in the last 12 years Ive never missed the opportunity to eat here!



    I freaking love this place, even better than Copeland's.

  • #5425 by Gonzo on 02 Oct 2010
  • For those wanting the reasonably priced steakhouse chain places, my personal preference is Texas Land and Cattle over Saltgrass, and there's one even closer to the stadium than Saltgrass.

    Go Hogs! Beat Aggies!
  • #5426 by jjsam on 02 Oct 2010
  • I had a career in Texass and lived in Arlington and Saltgrass and Texas Land & Cattle are Great places 2 eat!!   also Trail Dust on Lamar is good. :razorback:
  • #5427 by jbcarol on 02 Oct 2010

  • #5431 by MojaveJoe on 02 Oct 2010
  • Hard 8 is good, but a bit of warning their BBQ sauce is a little sweet for my taste. I figured out to add some of the chili sauce they have on each of the tables and mix it up with the sweet stuff and now I crave the place.

    Tex-Mex, BBQ and steak are great in the area - chinese and indian aren't (sigh)

  • #5432 by hogwild6700 on 02 Oct 2010
  • Craft is the best restaurant in Dallas! A little more pricey, but very worth it! Gators is good as well!
  • #5433 by Gonzo on 02 Oct 2010

    That I believe is Traildust, almost right next door on Lamar. Same place that used to cut your tie in half, haven't been there in awhile.....but not because I wear a lot of ties :)


    Go  Hogs! Beat Aggies!

    That aint' no joke. This is the creation of Chef Tom Colicchio, head judge of Top Chef on Bravo. Plain, simple, perfectly cooked food.
  • #5435 by Jabroni on 06 Oct 2010
  • I've had several Hogs on this board brag about Arkansas BBQ.  I'll be coming to Fayetteville for the Bama game and would like some pointers on where to eat.  I've never been to Fayetteville, so I don't know where the ICONic places to eat are.  I'd also like to know of any famous Razorback eating joints.  My son and I are huge SEC fans and would like to experience the Hog atmosphere before the game.  Any help would be most appreciated.  I'm looking forward to the game folks.  Good luck with Georgia!  I want us to face off undefeated!  Gives me butterflies!

    Curious about your experience in Fayetteville? Did you find "da BBQ"???
  • #5436 by Beantown Razahback on 10 Oct 2010
  • any suggestions, warnings or words of advice? Would really appreciate any logistics info i.e. the parking/traffic situation, the stadium in general etc...

  • #5440 by tusked on 10 Oct 2010
  • been there 4 times to see the hogs.....i always got a media parking pass from my buddies.....you wont have any trouble or i never did....stadium is like every other SEC stadium....big.....

    maybe someone from the old razor. club in ATL could chime in....there's a lot of room around the stadium to park and BBQ or it seemed that way to me....vs. GA which is a nightmare.

    gotta coach my sons fall baseball game or id volunteer to go with some of you and walk you through the whole thing

    Sounds like a plan, when are you guys going down? tailgating?

    we plan to head that way after work on friday... try to make it as close as we can on friday night and get up early and head the rest of the way in...

    we would like to be there by 9 and start tailgating...

  • #5443 by Arkansasbeaux on 10 Oct 2010
  • 1st trip here as well. Was NOT easy finding a hotel room. Heading down on Friday. Found one in nearby Opelika. Was relatively cheap but at least we found something. Looking forward to seeing all the other Hog fans and watching a Razorback victory.
  • #5444 by Beantown Razahback on 10 Oct 2010
  • Also stayin in Opelika at the Days Inn, also had trouble finding a hotel. Gettin in Friday night

  • Their fans are the most friendly in the SEC.

    They are nothing like the Auburn wieners that post over here.

  • #5447 by HSVhogfan on 10 Oct 2010
  • Eat at the Amsterdam Cafe if it is still there. (haven't been since 2006). Right off college on Stanford Ave, I think is the name of the street. But it is easy to find. Great food. Moderate to cheap prices. IMO one of the classiest road trips in the SEC.
  • #5448 by superior_wang on 10 Oct 2010
  • Been there once, fans were very hospitable....got invited to a tailgate by total strangers...   great experience.
  • #5449 by AubFaninArk on 10 Oct 2010
  • I hope you all have a great time in Auburn...Byrons BBQ, Mama Goldbergs, and Amsterdam are some good reccomendations for eating.  Just a gut feel by me...I think you guys will come away with the victory--we don't match up well against Arkansas and I think some of Petrino's schemes will expose our secondary/lb's.

    In the meantime, I'm just going to enjoy a week of a bammer loss.

    Have a great time!
  • #5450 by sao on 10 Oct 2010
  • Making the trip as well. Will be my daughters first Hogs game. Hate that it's in enemy territory but only have two season tickets to home games.
