Dallas BBQ Has Two Decent Lunch Specials


It would take a lot to get me to eat in the tourist packed hell hole that is 42nd Street btw. 7+8th Avenues… but two full meals for $10 qualifies as a lot right? When the fight broke out last month between The Feedbag and Serious Eats over whether or not Dallas BBQ was good, I wondered whether or not they still did that $10 special I used to see advertised in the subway. Well, it looks like they do. $10 gets you two 1/2 rotisserie chickens (which last time I checked was a whole rotisserie chicken), two orders of soup, two servings of potato or rice, and two pieces of cornbread. The only catch is it’s eat in only, and the deal is only available Monday-Thursday between 11am and Noon or 2pm and 5pm. On Fridays, for some reason, it’s available 11am to 5pm (bonus!) Too much food? (gasp!) Or don’t want to eat in Dallas BBQ? They also have a new $5 bbq chicken sandwich.

Fight Breaks Out Over Whether Dallas BBQ is Serious Eats

Serious Eats’ Ed Levine devoted his weekly New York review to Dallas BBQ today (there is one in Midtown on 42nd btw. 7+8th), and the Feedbag’s Josh Ozersky came down on him, saying that restaurants like this are an “affront to the city”. As much as it pains me to say this, I tend to agree with Mr. Cutlets on this one- but admit to always being curious about the Dallas BBQ $9.95 2 chicken take out special I used to see advertised in the subway. (Do they even have that deal anymore?) [via Grub Street]
