Texas Monthly – “They smoke a seasoned turkey breast then dunk the whole thing into a fryer to finish it off. The result is juicy turkey whose slices have thick crispy edges. It was some of the better smoked turkey I’ve had…..The ribs were also excellent. The meat was moist and came from the bone perfectly. A subtle sweet rub allowed a good dark crust to form and the meat was very smokey.”  from September 26, 2012 by Daniel Vaughn Read Full Review here

Dallas Morning News announces Baker’s Ribs is bringing fried pies to the State Fair of Texas “The current breaking news is that Dallas’ own Baker’s Ribs has secured a space on the midway and will be serving both sweet and savory fried pies.” The Baker family will be returning to familiar stomping grounds. Its matriarch, Jeanne Baker, spent almost four decades working for the State Fair, starting as a secretary in the exhibits department and eventually serving as the department’s director. Baker retired in 1994. Her daughter, Suzie Duncan, said the family is thrilled to have an opportunity “to become part of the fried food tradition at the greatest fair in the nation. I was raised on the fairgrounds, and it feels as if I’m coming home.” See Entire Article.

Dallas Observer First Look at Baker’s Ribs Deep Ellum new location with the Original Fried Pie Shop….”The Original Fried Pie Shop stands alone, with its own counter and register. One could order fried pies and never have to deal with the barbecue line. Or one could easily dabble in both. If we were one, that’s what one would do.”See entire blog


You are wonderful.  This has been one of the best experiences I have had with the catering side of a restaurant in a very long time.  Thank you, Annabelle, for that.  I am going to recommend y’all out to our other admins in our building.

Thank you all for the wonderful food that was prepared by Bakers Ribs.  The food was the highlight of the conference.  People are still talking about how good the food was. Thank you!

I just wanted to compliment you on the excellent catering job you did for my wedding on August 23rd in Canton.  The food was delicious, fresh and the delivery was exactly on time, as promised.  I really appreciate you making my wedding day stress free by providing excellent food and service on that day.  I would highly recommend your catering services to anyone.

We got lots of compliments on the BBQ on Sunday night. All of it was great and it was good that I added more brisket! We had very few leftovers!

“Everything was great. They arrived early, so we were able to get everything set up and ready so that people could start eating before the event began.” Catering by Baker’s Ribs

I’m from Louisiana and we take our potato salad seriously but today I had a bite of the most delicious, creamy, yet crunchy, potato salad – yours. I’m bringing this home for Thanksgiving to wow the family. You know after a few years of the same thing someone needs to bring a shiny new toy to brighten things up. This year that person is me.Thank you for making this amazing treat. I’ll be by soon with a uhaul to buy everything you have made. 🙂

Everything was awesome, and you made everything so easy!  We will definitely keep Baker’s Ribs in mind for any upcoming events,  and thanks for recommending the pies – they were a BIG hit.

Lunch last Thursday was wonderful as always. Bakers is always a favorite of ours and this time it didn’t disappoint.

The food was delivered on time, it was devoured and everyone was very happy!

The food was delicious & you customer service was great!  Thanks for a wonderful lunch experience.
