The tradition of Sonny Bryan?s award-winning barbecue started more than a century ago on February 13, a date that would become circled on the calendar again and again throughout Bryan?s Barbecue history. February 13, 1910, marked the opening of Elias Bryan?s Oak Cliff restaurant, Bryan's Barbecue. Exactly 20 years later to the day, his eldest son, William ?Red? Jennings Bryan, launched his own restaurant. When February 13 rolled around again 28 years later, Elias? grandson, William "Sonny" Jennings Bryan Jr., and his wife, Joanne, opened another restaurant, the first Sonny Bryan?s Smokehouse.
Although a different Dallas family now manages multiple locations of the restaurant chain in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the legendary barbecue lives on. Sonny Bryan's original barbecue sauce spices up its savory pulled meats and ribs, which have been devoured by famous entertainers, sports legends, and A-list celebrities alike. Sonny's seasoned chefs also cater heaps of smoked brisket and jalape?o sausage to parties and events.
Sonny Bryan's Smokehouse has been on the culinary radar since 1989, snapping up awards and publicity from Food Network, the Travel Channel?s Man V. Food Nation and 101 Tastiest Places to Chowdown, and Emeril Lagasse?s The Originals with Emeril. The modest joints have also earned some highbrow epicurean chops through a 2006 Zagat rating and a 2000 James Beard Foundation award for Culinary Excellence and Achievement.
Like the bat signal beckons the caped crusader to fight crime, a phone call, online application, or text message alerts Image Dry Cleaners's fleet of roving drivers to tackle insidious laundry. With garment bags flapping in the wind, they gather sullied coats, blouses, suits, and linens such as comforters, tablecloths, and tapestries from a designated pickup spot, carting the items back to their base free of charge. There, they oust grime and stains, returning fresh, squeaky-clean fabrics to doorsteps three days later, or customers can affix a note to laundry bags requesting next-day drop-off without incurring additional fees. In addition to expediting the cleaning process, staff members alter ensembles, repair shoes, restore leather, and preserve bridal dresses so that new wives can memorialize wedding days without attempting to cryogenically freeze their maid of honor.
Luxury Window Cleaning's dependable pane scrubbers invite sunlight into domiciles by swiping away stubborn grease, grime, and fingerprints inside and out. While the company specializes in creating clear neighborhood views, its technicians are also suitably equipped to power wash dirty decks, roofs, and driveways to keep home exteriors free of mildew and prepare them for a new coat of stain. They'll also repair window screens or replace existing ones with solar screens or glare- or sun-control fabrics, and can even build new frames to replace ones worn by age or trapped Pooh-Bears that constantly mistake them for doors.
Since 1992, Baby Safe Carpet Cleaning has extracted dirt, grime, and stains from soiled carpets with the help of nontoxic cleaning agents. While regular vacuuming can reduce the amount of dust mites nestled in carpet fibers, the heat emitted from Baby Safe Carpet Cleaning?s truck-mounted steam-cleaning system wipes them out, ensuring the absence of allergy- and asthma-causing entities. The IICRC-certified technicians precondition and pre-spot carpets, followed by a thorough rinse and generous raking to aid in the drying process and comb shags into a stylish part.
The uniformed and IICRC-certified technicians of Ultra Brite Carpet Cleaning steam cleanse floor fur using high-quality, nontoxic products. The rug revivers first pre-spot stains from dirt, spills, and clown fight clubs, and then precondition fibers to prime them for blasts of steam. The vapors originate within a powerful truck-mounted system, which allows technicians to blast through dust-mite posses without borrowing a teakettle from the homeowner. The cleaners then rake and groom strands to speed up drying time and experiment with floor-framing bangs.
