Being from Texas I love my barbecue… Especially the hidden hood spots, and this is one of the best. South Oak Cliff’s Record’s BBQ has been around as long as I can remember. Think the sign on the door says it was established in like the 1960s? But I wasn’t paying attention, plus numbers are boring. Anyway, this place is on POINT.
Hit the jump to see whatombout.
There are a couple of things to know about this place that are amazing, besides the food.
1) It’s incredible cheap… I bought a feast for under $11 bones.
2) The atmosphere… It kinda has the feel of a hood Soup Nazi. You BETTER know what you want before you order. These ladies don’t play around.
3) The “seating”…. I use that word loosely because there basically is none. Just some benches, a couple of foldable chairs, and like two bootleg tables. So don’t plan on eating here. Just come with correct with a near by picnic spot, cause the “tables” here are merely for show. Somehow I managed to grab a couple of seats and snag a few pics.
YOU. MUST. TRY. THE. BRAKES. The brakes are the burnt ends of the ribs, but DAMN are they good, and super cheap. I used them as a side… Think of them as meat fries. Sooo sooo good.
Next time you find yourself in south Oak Cliff, and you have the itch for some of the finest BBQ in Dallas hit up Records.
NOTE: Best think again if you going to try to get a refund on them brakes, son.
