    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.

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

    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.

    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

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

    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!

    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 :(

    Típico churrasco texano.

    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

    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.

    Not sure what the food is like, abandoned the line after 90 minutes of waiting on a Friday...we showed up at 11:10 AM. Ended up going to Uncle Uber's around the corner...well worth it.

    Best brisket ever!

    Donna · August 9, 2014

    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!

  • Starry K.

    Holy SHIT!! So you know all the normal recs (brisket, beef ribs, #hotmess.. blah blah blah) but FUUUUUUCK they got some good-ass Banana Pudding too. Stick that shit in my VEEEEEEEINS (and/or mouth 😝)

    Early... be there early...

  • Penny K.

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

    Penny Kim · July 4, 2014

    Inspect your glass and silverware. They go through so many customers, that their utensils are not cleaned properly. Mine were covered in leftover food.

    Only eat here if you like paying for overpriced bbq. Or ho down a few blocks to mama fayes. Inexpensive and very good.

    Brisket will rock your world.

    Well, let's see - try everything. And take a seat AFTER YOU ORDER. Play it cool.

  • Scott T.

    From all the hype I had heard about this place, I figured it had to be overrated. I was wrong - best brisket sandwich I've ever had.
