    Get the brisket, get the brisket. Cabrito dish is savory and very unique too. Be sure to get your free dessert for first time check-ins. I recommend the key lime merengue pie. Oh and GET THE BRISKET!

    Went there for brunch yesterday, there was a wait time however the food was worth it. I want to try them out for dinner. Awesome location as you get a backdrop of the skyline. All in all worth it.

    Everything is delicious. The pulled pork was awesome. Had the family meal, which came with extra thick smoked bacon, very flavorful. Their drinks are superb, especially the Bloody Mary and the 901

    delicious. had fantastic omelette and great, really different bloody mary. loved the pickled stuff. didn't care for ginger dressing on the salad that accompanied my omelette - seemed out of place.

    Don't miss the burger with fried egg and thick amazing bacon. Hands down the best burger in Dallas. Try all their signature sauces. Take an after dinner stroll next door for the best view of downtown!
  • Kurt von Schleicher h.
    It's Smoke, Peggy Sue's, and then The Orig Sonny Bryan's BBQ.. in that order. At Smoke, you must try the "Big Rib" (their claim to fame), or pulled pork or spare ribs.

    Not bad... $4 mimosas. I went with the Farm Eggs Your Way and got their grits & biscuit with homemade jelly. Yum!

    You can catch me here either for drinks or Sunday Brunch mostly. Sundays are made fun days starting out at Smoke for Brunch then heading over to Bar Belmont next door for "just one more."

    Brunch: First of all, you MUST get the pancakes and brisket hash. Also get a side of the bacon. Trust me. You've never had bacon like this before.
  • Kurt von Schleicher h.
    Hardwood-smoked ham or paprika and fennel seed beef sausage or bacon! Tim Byres (Chef/Owner) knows what's up for breakfast. BTW This is also my favorite BBQ spot in DFdub.

    Patrick McDonaghApril 24, 2016
    The Hash was delicious. Great eggs Benedict too, but the hash really takes the cake. Try the Bloody Mary if you're feeling like you need a drink

    Ask your waitress if the Big Rib is available when you are seated, and she can reserve one for you before the rest of the table orders!

    Get ready for some of the biggest, fluffiest pancakes you've ever encountered, alongside house-smoked sausages and a ton of smoked brisket.
