Our Story

Ferris Wheels Backyard BBQ Dallas was born out of a lifelong love for traditional Texas-style barbecue. The idea was sparked when our founder, John Ferris, spent his childhood summers enjoying BBQ gatherings with family and friends in his own backyard. Those cherished moments around the grill and the laughter-filled evenings under the Texas stars inspired him to share his passion for BBQ with the community.

In 2010, John’s dream came to life when he opened the doors to Ferris Wheels Backyard BBQ in the heart of Dallas. With a mission to serve the best BBQ in town while nurturing the essence of family, friendship, and community, Ferris Wheels quickly became a local favorite and a go-to spot for BBQ enthusiasts.

Our Backyard Atmosphere

At Ferris Wheels, we believe that great BBQ is best enjoyed in a relaxed and inviting setting. Our backyard-inspired ambiance welcomes guests to unwind, enjoy good company, and savor the deliciousness of our BBQ creations. With picnic-style seating, strings of twinkling lights, and the aroma of smoked meats lingering in the air, we aim to transport you to the feeling of a genuine Texas BBQ gathering.

Community and Events

We cherish our role in the Dallas community and strive to be more than just a restaurant. Ferris Wheels regularly hosts events and gatherings that bring people together, including live music nights, BBQ competitions, and fundraisers for local charities. We believe in giving back to the community that has embraced us with open arms and in creating lasting memories that extend beyond the dining table.
