Met my girlfriend and daughter there for lunch. Over the top delicious. My step son has chosen this place to celebrate his birthday; we go next week. Great choice. We'll be there in time to order off the Brunch menu. Looks interesting. Great food; good micro brews. Try it; you'll like it!

I had never been to Lockharts and I was blown away. I had trouble choosing from the menu and ended up with the chili mac and cheese.. it was to die for. I wanted to order a "to go" with it and have wanted it every day since. Their "corn bowl" was also very good. My friends had the tips... More

We decided to try Lockhart's BBQ because we were in the mood for BBQ and it was pretty close to the Detroit Zoo where we had been with the family. Lockhart's did not disappoint! I shared a Lockhart's Special Combo with my son and it was plenty of food for the two of us. I can't decide if the brisket,... More

This is the second time I have been to Lockhart's. The first time was with colleagues for lunch. This time went with family (a big group). Everyone got something different and everything was delicious. They also offer a nice variety of sauces to choose from - I like to have a different sauce with every bite. Many sides to choose...

We all ordered different things and every one was happy! Really tasty meat with a variety of sauces! We've been to lots of bbq places in the south and in Kansas, and this is one of the best! The pickles on the table were awesome! Great atmosphere and great regional beer, too! We will be back for more!

Visited at least once a month over the past three years and every meal has been excellent. Looking forward to another pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries.

Our daughter took us here for dinner because she had eaten here before an liked it. I had the beef brisket medium. It was so tender and utterly delicious. We order corn bread appetizer and it was very good. My side choices were sweet potato mash and collard greens (I highly recommend them). One of the best meals I've had... More

Can recommend the combo platter, and the pulled pork with sweet potato fries. Especially good mustard based potato salad. Impeccable, friendly but not intrusive service at lunch the day we visited. Casual atmosphere. The blues music piped in is a plus.
