    The brisket is great. The sweet potato mash is awesome! It tastes like pie! The ribs are kick-ass! Also, there was a hot Asian girl sitting at the bar last night. This place rocks!

    Pulled pork nachos are big. The tortillas are great, but the pork is very average. Also had brisket and sweet potato mash which were meh. The standout of the meal was the red hot sausage. Fantastic!

    The smoked bacon is to die for. It is meat candy! Lockhart' s can get a little pricey, but only because you order so much delicious food! Also try the burnt ends and brisket!
