I had read a lot of excellent things about this place. I stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. Wasn't too busy. I've heard sometimes there are lines to get in. You order your food at the counter and get it butcher style on paper. They have a cool selection of old school bottled sodas (Bubble Up, Cheerwine, Kickapoo Joy Juice...)... More

A friend that lives in Austin took me to this place while visiting Dallas (He wanted me to try a real and good Texan BBQ). The meat was perfect (we got brisket and ribs), I have never tried anything like this into my life. I will recommend this to anyone that wants the real stuff.

What a fantastic BBQ joint. Brisket was amazing. We went for lunch and there was no line. Service was great and they also had a nice beer selection.

The food here is some of the best BBQ in Dallas. Make sure to look at the specials menu, that is usually where I order from because it gets you something different from the normal BBQ dishes. Last time I was there I got a smokes salmon and it was outstanding.

Was visiting Dallas and brought the family for dinner. The Brisket was unbelievable and chicken fantastic. We ordered ribs and sausage as well. The sides rocked. If able, I'd have breakfast there as well. Must visit and I made sure that I shared with the Pit Master that we truly enjoyed the experience.

I go here every time I come to Dallas. The brisket and jalapeño sausage is excellent. The Lockhart coleslaw is also a highlight.

....Lockhart BBQ off the list! The Brisket was excellent as well as the Ribs. The Sausage was also very good. We had the Beans and Mac & Cheese which were both very good! I knew the Brisket was going to be good when they took a whole brisket out of the warmer....tossed it on the table and it shook around... More

Great barbecue - some of the best I have ever had. Enjoyed the brisket and pork ribs along with blue cheese slaw and an ice cold local "buzz" beer - fantastic. Would go back again, and again !
