    If you are by yourself get the 3 meat sample plate to get a little bit of everything. Brisket. Rib. Sausage. The smoke is intense and the BBQ sauce is amazing accompaniment to the smoky meats.

    The pork here is a delicate balance of juicy richness and smoky flavor. Sauce isn't required, but I felt it helped bring out the meat spices. Topped with coleslaw, this sandwich is a cut above most.

    The wait in line can be long, but it is totally worth the effort. It may very well be the best BBQ I've ever had. Come for the juicy brisket, but stay for the phenomenal pulled pork.

    Some of the best BBQ in Dallas. The air from blocks away teases you will the scent of smoked paprika. Try as many things as you can afford. Taste all of the house made sodas.

    A wait for lunch but well worth it! Pulled pork was amazing & the brisket was juicy. Prices are good,cheap parking lot close by. Life changing Mac & cheese. If you want to skip the line go to the bar

    Best BBQ in town! About an hour wait unless you go to the express line to buy 5+ lbs but it's worth it! You can even stop by the pie emporium next door while you have a friend wait and enjoy some pie!

    Beef brisket and pulled pork are fantastic. Sides are okay, but the dessert is also really good. Get the trough (for big groups) or go Saturday around 3pm to avoid a wait.

    Chose the three meat platter with brisket, pork ribs and the jalapeño cheddar sausage. Have to go with the mac & cheese for the side, probably the best I’ve ever had.

    Beef Ribs, 'nuff said! Well, that's not true, it's all GREAT! And the pulled pork, though not my first pick at a Texas BBQ joint, is amazing. More than 4 people? Get the TROUGH, it has all the meats!
  • Shareem L.
    The absolute best barbecue place in Dallas! Their burnt ends & collard greens with bacon is delicious. Saw them on Food Network a few years ago & loved them since tasting their food a few months ago!

    Get here as early as possible. The line is long and come around 1:00 they start running out of items. Have never had BBQ that requires NO sauce! Totally awesome & worth the trip. Lived up to the hype!

    You may have to wait in line, but the juicy, flavorful ‘que will be well worth it. They even have a meal that’s as big as Dallas, itself, “The Trough” – a BBQ sampler serving 4-5 folks.

    Get "The Pitmaster" a massive sandwich piled high w/beef, pork & sausage, BBQ sauce & slaw topped w/fresh jalapeños on a bun made in house.

    Everything here is worth the wait, the Mac and Cheese is creamy, the meat is smoky, and the staff remember your name after taking your order. Get there about 30 before opening and hear the bell call.

    ProTip: skip the line by ordering food at the bar (dine-in only). You want to get the brisket. And the mac & cheese with bacon and green chilies is worth a try too.

    The brisket is world class. That's just generally accepted. However, the beef rib was a real surprise. You order em one at a time, they weigh over a pound a piece and they're as good as the brisket.
  • Narendra Singh P.
    Busy and long line but they work so fast. We ordered five pounds of meat and some sides. We got it no more than 5 minutes ordering. It was all so delicious! I would definitely go back.

    Brisket is worth the wait. Get the jalapeno sausage; it has more flavor than the regular. Also don't miss the tumbleweed cookie...choc chips, coconut, PB, and pretzels!

    The BBQ is great,a must try in Dallas but the sides are a bit expensive for what they are. Their new location is great and the express line for large orders is very convenient.

    The rest of Texas might disagree, but who cares? This is Big D, and in Dallas the greatest brisket can be found at Pecan Lodge. Read more

    By the time we got to the front to order everything was out except for the brisket and "hot mess". But it was some damn good brisket. Mac n' cheese was also perfect.

    The chicken is brined overnight, single-coated in a flour mixture, and fried at a high temperature to keep it moist and crispy. The only seasoning: a pinch of onion powder and black pepper.

    Some of the best barbecue I've had in Texas. That's saying something. So rich. So tender. So moist. So GOOD!

    The brisket is fall apart in your mouth amazing. Go at odd hours so you don't have to wait in line forever.

    If you want a smaller / cheaper (yet just as filling) option, get the Pitmaster. It comes with brisket and sausage.

    When you taste the beef ribs, angels will cry, children will laugh, world peace will be achieved, and you will reach a state of total nirvana.

    The best brisket I've ever had. And the ribs weren't too shabby themselves. In the pantheon of smoked meat.

    Brisket and sausage were exceptional. If you sit at the bar you can order there and avoid the long line.
  • IrmaZandl T.
    DELICIOUS- I especially loved the homemade sausages and the collard greens are to die for!!!!

    The brisket and beef ribs go quick so come early. If they are out, the burn ends are a good substitute. They are top notch.

    Hands down the best smoked brisket I have ever tasted, their BBQ sauce is perfection as is the mac and cheese with BACON!

    Really up to the already high expectations we had. Tip: go straight to bar and order there to avoid the line.

    O M G!! From the Brisket that just falls apart to the hint of sugar in the greens, this place is wonderful.

    Get the trough. Just do it. Pool together money with 5 people. You'll still have leftovers.

    Sausage, brisket, loaded baked potato, mac n cheese, and 2 cookies for less than $40. This is the America I know and love. Thank you for existing...

    The "Hot Mess" is amazing! Sweet potato stuffed with barbacoa, cheese, butter, green onions and chipotle sour cream. Easily feeds 2 people.

    Bring a group and get The Trough - a selection of all of their meats. Enough to feed 4 hungry guys. Delicious!

    Everything is great! I recommend the brisket (lean), burnt ends, the pork ribs and the jalapeño bacon Mac and cheese.

    Some on the best BBQ in Texas. Get at least 4-5 people together and go to the express line and get "the trough" and whatever sides you want. It's the best way to cut the line.

    Beef brisket was the standout. The beef rib was huge & looked amazing but it was too fatty.

    Best brisket and collard greens ever! The collard greens are a bit spicy which makes it even better.
