My brother was in from out of town and I wanted to take him to a nearby BBQ spot that was unique. We went on a Sunday night at 5:30 and had to wait until 6:00 for certain menu items since they couldn't be served until dinner time. I have no idea why that happened. The brisket and ghost pepper...

The reviews on this place go back & forth like a see-saw, so in giving them 5 stars let me whine first. Guys, do something about the line... 45 minute wait for service?? Stupid... Double up on the register during rushes. No tasty rolls, just plain bread, blah. Deviled eggs, unusual flavor & OK. Like other BBQ restaurants, the peripherals... More

DEAR GOD YES. Let me preface this by saying that I am not from Texas, but I was crazy impressed by this food. The brisket fell apart when my fork touched it, and I could TASTE the smoke in the meat. So great, I almost didn't even need the delicious sauce. The Lockhart Slaw is good too, btw. The ambiance... More

What a find...in all the years I have been going to Texas on business, I did not know Plano had a nice historic downtown area. As an added bonus, Lockhart is there also. It was an interesting setup for me. You line up and order your meat by the pound, so if you are going with a group be prepared... More

After 2 unsuccessful attempts to sample great Texas BBQ in Austin we were finally successful in Dallas. And Lockharts did not disappoint. Although the line moves very slowly, everything we ordered (brisket, turkey, sausage and sides) were all delicious.

Downtown Plano looks a lot different since the 1980s. The whole environment has changed drastically for the better. Now there's a reason to go to downtown Plano after 5 PM. The smokehouse is one of them. It's very popular so parking can be difficult although there's a free public parking area nearby. The food was great. It's a little inconvenient... More
