Soulman’s Bar-B-Que

For over 40 years, Soulman’s Bar-B-Que has satisfied the hardest to please bar-b-que lovers…Texans! Its selection of meats are cooked “low and slow” over hickory in a time-honored tradition. Choices include beef brisket, ham, hot links, sausage, turkey, chicken, pulled pork and, the crowd favorite, ribs. Delicious homemade sides include ranch house beans or spicy cream corn. Soulman’s currently owns and operates 15 North and East Texas locations in Allen, Cedar Hill, Dallas, Forney, Garland, Greenville, Lancaster, Mesquite, Quinlan, Richardson, Rockwall (2), Royse City, Terrell and Van. Franchise announcements were made in late 2015.
