Dallas will soon be home to a one-of-a-kind BBQ restaurant created in the image of a true Texan.
Imagine Big Tex chowing down on some mouthwatering Texas BBQ with a local craft beer in-hand and live country music playing in the background. Now take that image and add in a 50-foot running Ferris wheel. The result is Ferris Wheelers. (Yes, you can actually ride on it!) Continue reading

In the land of buffets we tend to stay clear, but there is one super hot spot you will wish to sample everything – and in abundance.

Marshall Prichard stokes the firebox of one of the three smokers he fuels to barbecue the brisket and pork ribs he serves at his Sammy’s Texas Barbecue in Uptown. The brisket smokes for 10-12 hours at around 225⁰F on mesquite.
As well as the main indoor area, Sammy’s has two patios. A covered one adjoins the restaurant and has a door to the large back parking lot. On the other side of the restaurant a patio offers a grass covered surface and is a favorite with dog owners (Prichard is a big dog lover himself). That patio also has an outdoor smoker which is brought into use at special events. Believe it or not, Sammy’s does over 100 wedding rehearsal dinners a year, reflecting the desire of local families to offer something decidedly Texan to their out-of-state guests. Continue reading
