Sugar Baby's

DALLAS: Sugar Baby’s
1054 Regal Row

Dallas, TX 7524
Open M-Thur 11-6, F 11-8, Sat-Sun 11-3

Update 2009
This joint is CLOSED. It has been replaced by another Soulman's location.

Sugar Baby's was busy over lunch, so I'm guessing this area of town is starved for 'cue of any kind, because this trip was not enjoyable. The ribs were an enigma. The first three bites were bursting with good smoke flavor, and the next two bites tasted of hours-old meat. If the ribs were inconsistent, the brisket was consistent in every way. There were positively gobs of unrendered fat throughout the meat, it was all the same color...gray, and the flavor was like eating bad roast beef with a cold.

Each joint is judged on the essence of Texas 'cue...sliced brisket and pork ribs. Sausage is only considered if house made. Sauce is good, but good meat needs no adornment to satisfy. Each review can only be based on specific cuts of meat on that particular day. Finally, if the place fries up catfish or serves a caesar salad, then chances are they aren't paying enough attention to the pits, so we mostly steered clear.
