Well in the general area you defined there's a Sonny Bryan outpost in the Galleria Mall just south of Addison and a Bone Daddy's House of Smoke over by Central Expressway west of Addison.

Just don't tell the missus about the latter.

Bone Daddy's does with BBQ what Hooter's does with wings.

There's a Spring Creek BBQ on Central Expressway just north of 635. My favorite BBQ spots in Dallas are the original Sonny Bryan's over on Inwood and the Baker's Ribs. Neither are exactly in the area you're requesting, but if you have a car they're not too far away.

The Sonny Bryans on Inwood has not seen new furniture or decor since the 1950s. The seating is those awful school chair/desks that have those small surfaces that are tilted slightly and barely have room for a piece of notebook paper. I eat there occasionally and always feel like the food will slide into my lap unless I hold onto it. There are about 20 desk/chairs lined up against the walls in a room that is about 8 feet wide and 20 feet long. You also have the option of eating on the picnic tables that are in the parking lot if you don't mind the blowing dirt, heat or other dangers. Of course, if Sonny changed anything about the place, the locals who eat there would be really upset. (Lunch costs about $4.50 to $7.50.)

Sonny Bryans is located between a liquor store and the Salvation Army. Even though the food is good some days, the ambiance is definitely "the poor 50s". They close when the food "runs out" which could be 1pm or 4pm.

Highly, highly recommend Hard 8: http://www.hardeightbbq.com/

I've tried a lot of different places for BBQ and nothing compares. Amazing brisket, excellent ribs and they have these great jalopeno poppers, which is a piece of chicken break, with a jalopeno on it wrapped in bacon. I don't like very spicy food but I really like them.
