Texas is known for its barbecue, and here in Dallas, you could say that we take the cuisine very seriously. In fact, Dallas alone is home to dozens of barbecue joints, and that’s only counting those within the immediate area – there are many, many more to enjoy in Fort Worth, Plano, and beyond!
While it’s hard to pin down which BBQ restaurants are our favorites, there are a few local names that always seem to pump out the smokiest barbecue in town. Check out these delicious hotspots, which are beloved by our team here at The Mitchell Lofts Apartments.
Lockhart Smokehouse – 400 West Davis Street, Dallas, TX 75208
Named after the city of Lockhart, the Barbecue Capital of Texas, Lockhart Smokehouse promises to provide Dallasites with “the great smoked meat classics” that gave Lockhart its reputation. The Dallas location is in Bishop Arts District and serves up smoked salmon, burnt ends, lamb chops, prime rib, and more. They also ship their barbecue, so you can share the love with others.
Pecan Lodge – 2702 Main Street, Dallas, TX 75226
For a decade, Pecan Lodge has fed Dallas some of the best BBQ around. They sell smoked meat by the half-pound, handmade sausage by the link, and ultra-comforting side dishes typical of the best BBQ joints, like mac and cheese, fried okra, and coleslaw. You can also try their specialty dishes, which include an open-faced sweet potato stuffed with South Texas barbacoa or southern-style fried chicken.
Smokey John's Bar-B-Que – 1820 West Mockingbird Lane, Dallas, TX 75235
Most Dallasites are already very familiar with Smokey John’s, but in case you’re not, place your order tonight with this iconic Dallas restaurant. They are most famous for their brisket, but you can order plenty of other items from Smokey John’s, including classic BBQ platters, family packs that will feed a crowd, fried catfish plates, and more.
