Ribs were very good, with great flavor, and sauce is good if you feel you need it. Baked beans were FABULOUS, but they are hot, cooked with chunks of brisket, and jalapeños. I tried the Mac and cheese my wife got and it was good. Potato salad is not your usual mustard/mayo/pickle mix, but really wasn't to my liking. Three... More

I'm not huge on Brisket however, that was until I tried it here. Tender and flavorful. Parking was a bit of a pain but after getting there and having dinner it was well worth the effort. The food is served in paper and they had live entertainment. Excellent choice if you are in Dallas.

So I've had lots of regional BBQ/smokehouse/etc from around the country and this place just excels at what they do. The folks at the carving counter are friendly, efficient, generous with samples and make great recommendations. And then the meat is just excellent. We tired a little bit of everything (brisket with extra bark was my favorite) and I can't... More

Very much a Texas style place. Corrugated metal, old metal signs, and the smell is intoxicating. Easy to figure out what you want because the menu is very clear. Daily specials are not as clear because there is little explanation and no prices listed. We had the sausage and some brisket. Portions were healthy enough that we took home enough... More

If you are looking for one of the best Texas BBQ in Dallas, you don't have to look any further. This place was very delicious (This is coming from a North Carolinian who LOVES BBQ!). Here's are my thoughts on this restaurant: Food: -The meat is tender, juicy, and flavorful. What helps retain the delicious taste is the wax paper... More

The atmosphere is perfect - plan on "oinking out" - be sure to go extra hungry. The brisket was my absolute favorite, the smoked turkey an awfully close second. The ribs were superb as was the jalapeño sausage. The macaroni and cheese was really yummy too - reminded me of my childhood favorite - only better! The day's desert offering... More

Oh my god, i love this place. The ribs are so good. Pecan Lodge and Lockhart are right there, neck and neck as best BBQ in Dallas- though I kinda like the atmosphere of Lockhart better.

Was in Oak Cliff for a Show at Texas Theater and swung over to Bishop Arts District for some barbeque. Finding a parking spot on a Saturday night in Bishop Arts is always going to be a challenge. Took about 3 trips circling the restaurant before we caught a car leaving and jumped into the emptying spot. Line was about... More
