Ultimate BBQ, a new Indian restaurant specializing in grilled meats and tandoori-fired entrees, has officially opened its doors in Irving.
The restaurant quietly debuted at 6421 Riverside Drive in Irving late last week, bringing the city a brand new destination for Indian-style barbecue, biryani, vegetarian dishes, dosas, and more. As its name might indicate, fire plays a particularly important role at Ultimate BBQ, seen in the expansive menu of dishes cooked in clay pots in the tandoori and Indian barbecue plates.
Diners can look forward to dishes like paneer tikka and pomfret (for the unfamiliar, it’s a fish) cooked in clay pots and fish tikka grilled on the tandoor. As far as the barbecue is concerned, grilled proteins like za’atar spiced lamb chops, jumbo prawns in chili sauce, and masala chicken cakes will be on offer.
On the vegetarian side of the menu, find vegetarian korma, palak paneer, and tomato pappu. Dosas, a variety of biryani with various proteins, and desserts like ice cream round out the massive menu. An application filed with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission indicates that it has applied for a permit to serve alcohol, which means that a cocktail menu could be coming soon.
Ultimate BBQ is now open for lunch (note: there’s a lunch buffet!) from 11:30 to 2:30 Tuesday through Thursday, and reopens from 5:30 to 10 p.m. for dinner service. Fridays and Saturdays, it’s open from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.
