PROS: - Crispy brussels sprout - flavorful but the pancietta vinagrette was a little too strong/heavy - Balsamic pork ribs - meat was very tender and delicious CONS: - Barbeque Pork Belly Sandwiches - OVERHYPED - Pork belly was doused in heavy barbeque sauce that I didn't want to take another bite because it was too salty from so much sauce. Basically too much BBQ sauce. - Pricey NOTE: remember to make reservations as you'll find most the tables are booked.

Usually spots that can make a decent burger can also serve up a tasty chicken sandwich. Animal Restaurant erstellen did not disappoint on that front. I called in my order of a grilled chicken sandwich with lettuce, tomato, swiss, avocado, and mayo, and it was hot and ready for me when I arrived to pick it up. The guy who was working the grill was curious who it was for since it had so many toppings he didn't think anyone could possibly fit it into their mouth. It must have flattened a bit in the wrapper on the drive home because it was indeed possible to eat without too much jaw stretching. I also got some tots with queso (melted cheese with rotell tomatoes is what it seemed like to me) over them that were pretty fantastic. The onion rings were meh for me. I just don't think I like that kind of breading with onion rings. Anyway, overall a great take out spot. They also sell local beers like Deep Ellum Blonde for $2 each (for offsite consumption).

I am always excited when Dallas gets a new healthy restaurant and was even more thrilled this was close to home. Great place, love that they have a patio and print calories on the receipt. Kid friendly, my 5yo + 2yo love it! Hope they add more options to kids menu! Can't give 5 stars as a take out order was not good. Food dry and cold!

Definitely did not live up to the hype. We left feeling unsatisfied. Service was extraordinary though! What We Ordered - 2 Chicken Liver Toast $4 - Veal Brains $13 - Crispy Pig Head $13 - Hamachi Tostada $15 - Marrow Bone $15 - Japanese Uni $18 - Foie Gras Loco Moco $39 Yay - CHICKEN LIVER TOAST!! Super delicious! - Hamachi Tostada was very refreshing. - Foie Gras Loco Moco was good. I enjoyed the combination of flavors. Okay - Veal Brains was okay...I had to eat this with the Loco Moco rice lol. - Crispy Pig Head tasted like something I could get at a Cuban restaurant. It was good but, I would have liked to try something more unique. Nay - Marrow Bone. The chimichurri sauce overpowered the bone marrow. :( All I tasted was sour, chimichurri sauce lol. - Japanese Uni. Oh my goodness. Most regretted dish of the night. Cucumbers were super sour and overpowered the dish. Not sure how the fried cheese was suppose to match with the uni...

But for serious, do make sure to join one of their free hourly tours. You'll be able to fully appreciate the history, architecture and selection of this last bastion of apolitical government funding. (Seriously, who objects to libraries on political grounds? Nobody. Libraries are beloved by all.)

Not impressed. I do recommend the pork belly slider. It's not a sandwich. It had great flavor and tastefully done.
