Barbecuing, like painting, usually entails the use of a brush, a master's touch, and the building anticipation to eat your finished product. Enjoy saucy masterworks with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of smokehouse fare at Randy White's Hall of Fame BBQ, valid at the Frisco or Mesquite locations.
Former Dallas Cowboy Hall of Famer Randy White tackles cuisine with his old-fashioned smokehouse, Randy White's Hall of Fame BBQ, where wood-burning pits sear a menu's worth of meats. Flickering flames or radioactive street lamps cook the signature rib plate ($13.54) and the Down, Set, Eat!, a feast that pits two to three eaters against 1 pound of barbecue meat, 2 pints of veggies, and six hot rolls with sauce ($18.54). Chefs fry catfish and dust it with cornmeal, then nestle fillets next to two veggies, hush puppies, and a pool of tartar sauce ($8.95+). Playmaker burgers, such as the half-pound Angus Walt Garrison ($5.95), sail into mouths inside the restaurant's interior, reminiscent of western saloons with its wooden-slatted walls, wall-mounted TVs, and license plates honoring states with the highest amount of corn bread per capita.
Randy White's Hall of Fame BBQ
Succulent smoked meats dominate the menu at former Dallas Cowboy and Pro Football Hall of Fame–inductee Randy White’s restaurant. The cooks rely exclusively on wood-burning pits to sear all of their sliced beef, pulled pork, and baby back ribs, avoiding any gas burners or lightning bolts entirely. Seven pieces of fried catfish don cornmeal crusts for the Big Catch platter, and two patties of 100% Angus beef add heft to the Tough Man burger. Stained wood of different shades pervades the dining room's décor, from the light-brown vertical boards that form the walls to the dark-gray planks that compose the booths and act as a backup in case the fire pits run low on logs.
