Sonny Bryan's Smokehouse Inwood

2202 Inwood Road, Dallas TX, 75235
Over 110 years ago in 1910, the Bryan Family began dishing up mouthwatering Texas barbecue. In 1958, Sonny Bryan established the "Original" Sonny Bryan establishment at 2202 Inwood Road and since then have developed into a Dallas legend over time.

They've welcomed culinary icons like Julia Child, Rachel Ray, Emeril Lagasse, and Dean Fearing, as well as notable figures including US presidents, well-known performers, legendary athletes, and the pickiest barbecue enthusiasts, the Texans. In addition to being featured in numerous magazines and periodicals, including Texas Monthly, People, Gourmet, D Magazine, The Barbecue Bible, Food Network, Travel Channel, and many more, they are the recipients of a Regional James Beard Foundation award.
