Where I Go Out

At My Venues

The Big Rib
$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, Modern, Full Bar, Bbq, West Dallas
"This dry-rubbed and smoked beef rib is insanely delicious and highly craveable. Tim Byres’ creative Texas and Southern-inspired cuisine is executed with imagination in this temple of smoked meats. Their homemade pickles of every variety are delicious and a great balance to the meats."
Pork jowl bacon
$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, Modern, Full Bar, Bbq, West Dallas
"I feel like all of Tim Byres’ visions for SMOKE as a restaurant are represented in this one dish. It has Texas roots with Tim’s own personal touch. The pork has deep, smokey flavors and richness from the fat. The homemade pickles and tangy mustard-molasses sauce make the dish."
Blueberry & house-made ricotta cheese pancakes
$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, Modern, Full Bar, Bbq, West Dallas
"The best brunch in town can be found at SMOKE. The ricotta pancakes are light and delicate, unlike any I have ever had. They make their Bloody Marys completely from scratch, including the smörgåsbord of seasonal house-pickled vegetables that teeter on top. But whatever you do, don’t forget to order a side of the thick-cut pork belly bacon!"
The Big Rib
$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, Modern, Full Bar, Bbq, West Dallas
"Cooked low and slow, the dry rub and moisture incorporated into this dish are perfect for this hunk of meat still on the bone. One word: beautiful."
