After a long day spent driving and visiting the Nature and Science museum in Dallas, we were ready to eat! Lucky for us, Spring Creek Barbeque was open and available for dinnertime.
Right when you walk in, you will see a conveyer belt-like system where you pick your drink (ranging from sodas to beer), and then head over to choose your meats.
You can choose a BBQ dinner, which comes with your choice of meat and either two home-style sides, or one premium side. Sadly they were out of the pulled pork by the time we got there.
Their home-style sides range from coleslaw, mac and cheese, corn, and beans, and their premium sides range from baked potato, fries, okra, and salad.
They also had a self-serve station so you could pile on all the red onions, pickles, peppers, and shredded cheese to your heart’s content!
The Baby Back Ribs ($18.65) were coated with plenty of BBQ sauce, which went well with the mac and cheese and coleslaw that I chose, but overall there was nothing too special about the ribs.
The Brisket ($17.95), however, was extremely tender. You can choose between marble cut, lean cut, or a mix. I recommend choosing marble cut if you want tender meat that will melt in your mouth! It was also very saucy. Meanwhile, the corn was pretty flavorless and just seemed like it was boiled in water. The potato salad was a better option.
You also get a roll, made in house, with your meal, and I found the roll to be surprisingly delicious. It was very airy and chewy! I saw that they were busy baking more rolls constantly at the station in the back, where you can order desserts like peach cobbler and ice cream.
They had plenty of indoor seating, but no outdoor seating.
While Spring Creek was not my absolute favorite place for BBQ, it is still a solid option located near Dallas Fort Worth airport! It was nice not having to wait in a long line, and they are open until 9pm, which is nice because some BBQ places close by dinnertime.
