1. Dr. Bell's BBQ 1404 Main St, Dallas, TX 75201

A dine-in/takeout/delivery joint with corrugated steel-lined walls, rooftop vent-fan lampshades, tabletop cacti, and plentiful images of Elvis, Bell's is helmed by a native-son chef who, over time, plans to rep both stages of his career: his early years at Austin's Ruby's BBQ (which 20yrs later still serves his recipes), and more recent higher-end gigs at The Mercury, Aurora, and Citizen, which despite Sasha Cohen's backing, wasn't "Unstoppable".
