Somebody Help This Poor Son: Beef Ribs in Dallas for Dad

He’s a good son. He wants something special for his father. You guys know what to do:

I am looking for BBQ Beef ribs for Father’s Day dinner similar to Tony Roma’s Bountiful Beef Ribs.  Does anyone know where to get good beef ribs in the Metrople… I mean North Texas (sorry Wick)?

  1. Uncle Nancy, do you mean “stupid” when you write “poor” in the headline?

  2. The Big Rib @ Smoke; you wont find better in Texas, i.e. anywhere.

    Tony Roma’s?

  3. Peggy Sue BBQ has the best beef ribs, in my opinion, and I don’t particularly care for smoked beef ribs, they outta be braised.

  4. I don’t remember seeing Beef Ribs at Off The Bone. And I’m not looking for Tony Roma quality but rather that style of those thick beef ribs.

  5. and by quality i mean lack of quality for those who want to call me stupid for comparing good bbq to tony romas :-(

  6. You will not find them here in Dallas, Trust me. I am one of the only few around that really prefers Beef Ribs to Pork. Dont get me wrong, the BBQ here at Lockharts&Pecan Lodge are off the wall. If you need a Beef Rib fix, you are going to have to go to Coopers, across from Billy Bobs Texas, to get a true meaty beef rib.

  7. Pingback: Texas Smoked Beef

  8. Lockhart Smokehouse has fantastic beef ribs…one of their specialties. They usually only serve them on Wednesdays, however, so call ahead before you go. They might have them as a special for Fathers Day.
