A friend and mine decided to try lockharts as the reviews sounded pretty good. We weren't disappointed as the food was very tasty. We shared a big sandwich and ordered a mac and cheese that had been tips in it. Would definitely go back the service was also amazing as she was very descriptive of the menu items, suggesting we...

I had heard rumors that this was a real deal BBQ joint so it had been on my list for a while, problem being I live 2 hours away so it took some time to make it happen. From our first walk in the door we could tell we wouldn't be let down, the smell of smoked meat took over.... More

Came here for a birthday celebration with 6 other guests. Service was prompt and quick. Restaurant was very clean and bright (bathroom could have used some attention however.) My wife ordered the brisket sammy and I ordered the Saddle Brisket burger. Both were beefy, tender, moist and super delicious! Highly, highly recommend this restaurant!!

Had the beef brisket, ordered the half and half (fat/Lean combo. Gotta say lean was burnt, but fatty one much better, with a side of their coleslaw I was a happy camper. I think it's more a meateater sort of place. Nothing facy, just good meat. Would order the all fat next time, no half and half.

Even though BBQ is not my favorite, it is a favorite of my family. Our dinners were very good, the service was good, even though the place was crazy busy. I would definitely recommend this place, especially if you are a BBQ fan.

Pitmaster Bubba and crew create some of the best Texas BBQ, outside of Texas. We love coming here. Great everything. Ribs, pulled pork, brisket. The crunchiest fried green beans, wicked deviled eggs and one of the best selection of Michigan craft beers around. #mightygoodeats here.

I had heard about this place and couldn't wait to try it the next time we were in Royal Oak for the comedy show. I love BBQ ribs, pulled pork, brisket. I had burnt ends for the first time there OMG I could eat those all day. The food is excellent and like many BBQ places not cheap. I have... More

It's a bit difficult rating Lockhart's BBQ as the items that were good were fantastic and those that weren't, were pretty bad. This mix has me curious what another visit would bring. First and foremost, the bacon and brisket I had was absolutely the best parts of my meal. Both were well seasoned and the brisket in particular was some... More

I have tried many items on their menu and haven't found anything that didn't please. Clean, friendly, and smells good.
