    The brisket is more than worth the likely heart attack it'll bring. Best barbecue I've ever had. Get lots of sides because you'll need the lids in lieu of plates, which they don't provide.

    The meat was tough and the sausage, though reasonably tasty, was impossible to cut with the plastic cutlery. The potato salad was a very odd recipe that was not compatible with barbeque.

    Lockhart is certainly a worthy locale to which one would seek to pay homage, and this place gets it basically perfect. Easily some of the best brisket in the Plex. Also habanero Mac n cheese. But $$$$

    The most amazing brisket and beef ribs. Just an FYI two ribs equals 1/2 lbs and 1lbs of brisket is enough for 2 people. Also the BBQ beans and Mac and cheese is amazing! A must go place for anyone

    If you want fatty brisket you need to ask the pitmaster to give you the fatty part. Otherwise you may get stuck with the non juicy lean part.

    Brisket Deviled Eggs. Lockhart pumps up the flavor and plays with the texture by incorporating bits of brisket into the mix. These little things are addictive.

    The slaw. Lockhart has some fancier cole slaws, including a bleu cheese-based one, but the buried sriracha, paprika and cayenne in their titular one elevates it past just cabbage and mayo.
