    The Hot Mess is good!!!

    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 "Hot Mess" - sweet potato with shredded brisket. Delish!

    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.

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

    Hot mess was sooo good!

  • Jacobo G.

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

    Still the best BBQ in Dallas. Amongst the very best in Texas. Fantastic brisket. Very good beef rib. Good sausage.

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

  • KATIE G.

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

    Messy, but sometimes huge queues!

    Dave Ward · July 22
  • Kaylee

    Worth all the hype get there early around 11 to avoid a line or "slim pickins."

    You have to get the #burnttips #hotmess and the #macandcheese! Simply the best bbq in Dallas.

  • Long

    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.

  • Brittney P.

    A lot of hype about this place due to the fact it's not like other restaurants in Dallas. Once you go you realize it's avg. BBQ & not worth 40mins wait. Brisket was ok but the Mac n cheese was bland.

    Brittney Potter · March 8
  • Hannah S.

    Definitely lived up to the reviews. This place was delicious. The beef brisket was so tender and good.

  • Slaveiko S.

    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.

    Everything is great, but the Pitmaster Sandwich will change your life!!

  • Jeremy S.

    Brisket and sausage were exceptional. If you sit at the bar you can order there and avoid the long line.

    Jeremy Somers · November 13, 2014
  • Russell H.

    Skip the line and bring home leftovets with the Meat Trough: Brisket, Pulled Pork, Sausage, Pork and Beef Ribs.

    Russell Hirschorn · November 8, 2014
  • Ricky S.

    Try the meat platter. The brisket & pulled pork were good. Sides are okay.

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

    travel4food · October 20, 2014
  • Erin F.

    Lives up to the hype! Great chopped beef sandwich and fried okra! Watch the long lines though.

    Erin Finegold · October 17, 2014
  • Minnaz S.

    Unsure what all the hype is about, all the meats tasted like the were good on a gas grill, dry where it needed sauce, a lot of fat, and tastes like it was drenched gasoline :(

    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.

    Maybe it was better when it was at the Dallas Farmers Market, however on this visit it was subpar, down right disappointing. Dry, over smoked brisket & sausage. Sausage was dry and crumbled when cut.

    Victor Valdez · August 27, 2014
  • Michael A.

    If you're a group, avoid the long wait by getting there before noon, going to the express line & ordering the family trough or 5lbs of meat

    Michael Anderson · August 22, 2014
  • Michael A.

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

    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

    Kitchen sink (baked sweet potato, loaded down!)

    John Koen · August 17, 2014
  • Geoffrey W.

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

    Geoffrey Worling · August 17, 2014
  • Marta G.

    So amazing. Get here early bc food sells out. The brisket is to die for and the patio is amazing.

    Marta G · August 17, 2014
  • Brian S.

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