Press Release – Dallas BBQ Debuts Three New Food Items!

DALLAS BBQ DEBUTS THREE NEW FOOD ITEMS AND A SPECIAL VALENTINE’S DAY DRINK ON THEIR MENU IN ALL TEN NEW YORK CITY LOCATIONS

New York, New York, February 8, 2017 Today, Dallas BBQ’s announced they are expanding their comfort food menu to include Chicken and Waffles, a Sriracha Chicken Sandwich and the Healthy Power Bowl. A newly added Valentine’s Day drink, Kinky Shades of Love, is the perfect addition to the restaurant chain’s popular frozen drink menu.  All ten Dallas BBQ locations will now feature these new items on their menu.

Dallas BBQ’s Chicken and Waffles is the restaurant’s take on a southern classic. The dish features three pieces of breaded to-order fried chicken (a wing, a boneless thigh, and a boneless breast). The fried chicken is then smothered in Dallas BBQ’s famous Sticky sauce and served over a homemade cheddar-scallion savory waffle and is accompanied with coleslaw and pickles to cut the sweetness.

The Sriracha Chicken Sandwich features a whole breast of fried chicken with lettuce tomato and pickles on a classic potato roll. It is topped with Texas Peddle sauce (a seasoned mayonnaise with horseradish and spices) and Dallas BBQ’s own sweet Sriracha sauce.

The Healthy Power Bowl is a spinach salad topped with red cabbage, mushrooms, quinoa, avocado, and kidney beans for the health-conscious customer. It is finished off with the customers’ choice of fresh grilled shrimp, salmon, steak, or rotisserie chicken.

The Kinky Shades of Love Valentine’s Day Drink is a fun take on the sexy cocktail. Named after the popular film, this tri-color frozen drink consists of Strawberry Long Island Iced Tea, strawberry piña colada and traditional piña colada and served with a shot of Red Alizé and an upside-down mini bottle of Moscato sparkling wine (in the fashion of a bulldog).

The three new items follow the successful launches of Pineapple Shrimp, grilled salmon, mini onion loaf, boneless wings and the mini side salad. “We have seen that our customers enjoy healthy options alongside fun and comforting new dishes. In the past few weeks we have been blown away by the popularity of the new items, especially the Chicken & Waffles—over 5000 sold,” says Stuart Wetanson, Dallas BBQ.

“Creating, developing and launching new items is one of the most challenging and rewarding aspects of my work. My goal is to keep Dallas BBQ exciting and relevant while being recognized as an iconic NYC Staple,” Wetanson continues.

Known for their “Famous” Texas Crispy and Honey-basted “Sticky” chicken wings, barbeque ribs and Texas-sized frozen cocktails and bulldogs, Dallas BBQ’s has been a New York City staple since the 1980’s. The family owned restaurant has long been revered as the “go to” restaurant for great food, affordable prices and great portions.

ABOUT DALLAS BBQ

In 1936, Carl and Grace Wetanson opened “Grace’s Luncheonette” which began a four-generation family-run restaurant operation. The historic “Wetson’s Hamburgers” chain grew in the 1960s to almost 100 units dotting the landscape of New York City and surrounding areas. Dallas BBQ now has 10 locations across New York City and the Wetanson’s acclaimed Italian restaurant Tony’s DiNapoli has two locations in midtown and the Upper East Side.

Dallas BBQ started in 1978 as a simple Chicken & Ribs restaurant. As the concept grew into itself through the eighties and nineties, Dallas BBQ became locally famous for “Texas-size” frozen drinks and a broad menu of affordable, fresh and tasty food.

With over 60 years of restaurant experience Herb Wetanson works side by side with his son, Greg Wetanson and grandson, Stuart Wetanson, running Dallas BBQ and Tony’s DiNapoli. The three generations of owners bring with them unique perspectives and different areas of expertise. Greg has dedicated 30 years of his career to the growth and professionalism of the company. Stuart has been working as a partner for 6 years now but has been a presence in the business since his infancy.
