Fantastic food and experience!

This was TX BBQ at its best... We tried the sausage, chicken, ribs and brisket and all of them were full of smokiness and flavor, tender and delicious. The potato salad and BBQ beans were excellent. The line took a long time but it's great to order right at the smoker. The guys were great and... read more

If you could combine Pecan Lodge with Lockharts Smokehouse, it would be unstoppable. I know BBQ is subjective, but here are my pros and cons. Both briskets were good, I ordered a pound at both, but I feel I got more at Lockharts than Pecan Lodge, I give a SLIGHT nod to Lockharts due to taste. Jalapeno sausage at Pecan... More

In Dallas for some R&R with family so sis and I tried a new place for us. Went to Lockharts for first time. Had ribs brisket and a link. Brisket was good, very tasty smoke flavor but a bit dry and have to say it as good as pecan lodge. Rib was good and tender. Not a big fan of... More

We went here on a fellow blogger from the area's recommendation. The staff was very friendly, the atmosphere very Texas and the food ... The brisket and ribs were both tender, portions generous and they definitely tasted good. I've had a few better in my many Bar-B-Q excursions, but, wouldn't have a problem recommending Lockhart to anyone traveling in the... More

Oh so good! We had ribs, sausage, Mac and cheese, coleslaw, and beans. The beans were so spicy and delicious. My son gave the Mac and cheese a 9.5 out of 10...he only gives a 10 if it's bottomless! Love the spicy pickles too!

After seeing this place on a couple of different TV shows,we decided to give it a try while visiting Dallas.The location we visited is in the re vitalized area of Oak Cliff and we were not disappointed.The shoulder clod is a leaner cut of beef than the brisket but it was still very tasty as was the smoked turkey.They had...

I'd probably eat 20 meals a week here. Once a week, I'd change something up. But the other 20 - barbecue. Great barbecue. My co-worker and I ate embarrassing amounts of food for lunch. The turkey was amazing. For anyone who's ever made barbecue, turkey is one of the toughest meats to make, and these guys did a great job.... More

Great BBQ in Dallas. They were having a festival next door in the parking lot, so parking was a challenge. We thoroughly enjoyed dinner, although a bit too hot for my 'delicate' palate! Rustic atmosphere, great wait staff.

I am a big fan of barbecue and eat it often in my travels - and this place has jumped up into my Top Three - fabulous! We ended up going back a second night because the food was so good. The meats were melt-in-your-mouth tender, the slaw, and mac m cheese was excellent and the jalapeno sausage was amazing.... More
