The food was excellent once it came out. They were under-staffed during our visit; it took a long time for us to get served and it just seemed that they weren’t prepared for their guests. The “family-sized” portions were small, a couple of our sides were cold when they came out, and one of our sides was forgotten entirely. The cocktails were great, and the meat entrees were VERY good. I have a feeling that on a different night with more staffing, it could have been an awesome experience.

Everything was great, except (1) service was slow and inattentive; and (2) brownie desert was exceptionally dry. Otherwise, food was great.

The Burnt End Appetizer was very good, however, everything after was fair to poor. We ordered a half pound of Brisket, and a half pound of pork. The brisket was 70% fat and tasted like roast beef.

It was Saturday night and we made reservations. We were visiting from Southern California having dinner with a family member who lives locally. The place was cute and I loved the decor. They were extremely short staffed. I believe the owner served us. He explained that he was short staffed and he would be doing the waiter, bar tender, manager position. He was gracious in taking off a couple items off our bill. It was one of the those situations where I felt like rolling up my sleeves to help him out in accommodating the other patrons. Our food was cold. My boyfriend had the brisket. He said it was cold and tough. My daughter had the brisket and pulled pork. She said it was tough and dry. She loved the Mac and cheese. I enjoyed my coleslaw. Would I try this place again? Yes I would. The night I visited was an off night. Things happened and I know the owner was working hard to accommodate all his customers.

Great smoky, Kansas-style bbq. We shared several sides and really enjoyed the brussel sprouts and macaroni and cheese. A great place to hit up if you're looking for a more elevated bbq spot.

Easily some of the best BBQ I’ve had in my entire life. The jalapeño cheese grits and jalapeño cheddar sausage were incredible and worth the price of the meal alone. The wait staff worked as a team and gave us friendly and exceptional service. It made for a memorable and delightful Valentine’s Day dinner.

For a barbecue place we had high hopes for the pork ribs, however they came out with the membrane attached and very tough/chewy. The waiter kindly offered me another entree which I opted for (jalapeño sausage) and it was very good. Right after sending my ribs back the table next to me also sent there’s back, so it wasn’t just me. The appetizers were amazing and the overall experience was good, just don’t order the ribs haha.

Not typical BBQ. Food is very good. The Sha-Bang is a great deal, Appetizer, 1lb meat, two sides and one dessert, $45.00 for two. Service is an issue. If you are not in a hurry and want nice bbq in a great atmosphere, then go.

From the time my boyfriend and I walked in for date night, we were given GREAT service. We had to wait a few minutes for our table so we sat at the bar and ordered a few cocktails with Blake. Blake was very kind and friendly and we ended up just having dinner at bar. We went along with his recommendation and tried to the brisket, chicken, ribs, mac and cheese, and potatoes. Everything was delish! Blake made the experience even better by giving us quality service. Thanks Blake! We will be back!

Came here with big expectations as 18th & Vine is near the top of almost every "best bbq in Dallas" list. The service was fine, and it is a really nice facility, but the truth is that there is much better bbq in Dallas. Pecan Lodge, Cattleack, Off The Bone, and Lockhart to name a few.

The food at 18th & Vine is chain restaurant quality bbq at best. If we hadn't already had Pecan Lodge and Cattleack before coming to 18th & Vine, maybe the bar wouldn't have been set so high. In any case, in my opinion 18th & Vine should not be mentioned in the top echelon of bbq in Dallas. We went on a Saturday afternoon.

Food was great but they were out of several items we ordered (three). Our waitress was lovely and did the best she could considering the circumstances. The burnt ends were phenomenal!

It's risky to get burnt ends in Dallas, but the risk was worth taking. The appetizer portion of burnt ends with the chopped salad made a perfect combination. The ends were at Kansas City level. I'd return
