    Default The Travelers BBQ Review - Spring Creek BBQ - Dallas, TX

    I do a lot of travel with my job. I like to visit BBQ places as I travel to get ideas and experience different flavors of BBQ. I went to Springcreek BBQ in Dallas yesterday. It's a local chain. I usually try to find the smaller local places but didn't have time yesterday. The BBQ was average to good (remember - I'm from IN so I'm not from a BBQ mecca). I had a lunch special 1/2 smoked chicken and sides. Pretty good smoke taste and the side sauce was decent. Sides were just okay. Could of used more spice on the chicken. The baked beans were a major disapointment. Very poor flavor.

    Okay Texas locals - where should I have gone in Dallas?

    Thanks for the review, Paul. Looks like a "Chain" type place.
    Did you chicken out taking pix of the food? You should have told them you were a reviewer for a big website and you might have got a comp....lmao!

    Mecca is where ya make it my friend!!!

    Looks too nice to be a good joint!!!!

    Glad ya got to get out and try some Q on the road!!!

    Check out a book called "Real Barbeque" they have a pretty good selection of joints across the country. Not a complete selection to say the least but a fairly good read.

    Ive heard some good things about this joint... Sonny Bryans

    The chicken that I ate was not the only white meat. Couldn't bring myself to take pics in the restaurant.

    I don't know Dallas Q so I can;t help, but I do like Trav's idea of telling them you are a Q reviewer. Tow things might happen. They might be sure to give you their best, and for that matter they might just give it to you for free. Right Mike?

    Spring Creek has never impressed me. Typical chain problems, IMO.

    There are a few places around here, but they all tend to be hit-or-miss. I don't claim these are the best, just local places. For really good stuff, go to Lockhart, Luling, Taylor, Elgin, etc. Central Texas is the best.

    Sonny Bryan's - Gotta catch the original location in Dallas.
    North Main BBQ - All you can eat, but it's only open on weekends.
    Angelo's - FW legend. Draft beer is literally ice-cold. Don't miss the bear in the entry way.
    Railhead - Started by Angelos ex-pats. Good, but in a more commercial sort of way.
    Bone Daddy's - The Hooters of 'cue joints. But I've heard good things about the food, too.

    Of these, I'd go for Angelo's. Atmosphere, if nothing else. But I'd rather smoke a brisket myself, personally.

    I've eaten at Spring Creek a couple times. Wasn't impressed. Typical chain.
    It was close to the hotel the co. had negotiated rates at I would stay in on trips to DFW so it was handy.
