We are celebrating 4 years since the launch of DallasFoodNerd! DFN is a community project of a few (30+ now!) DFW-based nerds who happen to like food, probably a little too much! Do you have a restaurant that you would like to have featured? Reach out to the DFN founders @Elysa or @RoryEllis or email Foodie@dallasfoodnerd.com.

DFN contributor @chrisro125 is talking about BBQ #ontheblog “Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the main event! BBQ is the name of the game here at 18th and Vine, and it takes the ‘que game up a notch. The pit boss Matt offers up meats a la carte, but he recommends getting Matt’s Picks which gives you the opportunity to sample three meats he hand picks daily for your dining pleasure. Tasty Brisket, juicy chicken, homemade sausage and fall off the bone ribs. Served family style, this is the best bang for your buck to try authentic KC hickory smoked BBQ. Don’t forget to try the two sauce options, a traditional BBQ sauce and a KC staple, a vinegar based sauce that is unbelievably tasty!” #dallasfood #dallasfoodnerd #texasbbq
