Dallas Observer's Description

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. Barbecue has always been a humble affair, but pit masters who treat a great cut of brisket with respect and a good dose of smoke make cowboy chow a thing of beauty. That savory crust and intense flavor would be insulted if you dabbled in that tiny cup of tangy sauce. Save it for the smoky sausage with so much garlic that date night will be ruined for two days. Ribs and pulled pork don't stand out as brightly, but it's hard to shine while in the shadow of Dallas' bar-none best brisket.

    Inside the Dallas Farmer's Market is the unassuming Pecan Lodge. We insist you get the brisket. [Eater 38 Member]

    Best brisket and sausage combo in Dallas. Get the jalapeƱo and bacon mac 'n cheese!

  • Huntur Y. on 04/19/12

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