Dallas, TX Edition: Lockhart Smoke House

Lockhart SteakhouseSteak is to Oklahoma, as BBQ is to Texas. Brisket, specifically. So, before I flew out of Dallas to head home, I went in search of the best BBQ in the city.

Lockhart SteakhouseThe result that seemed easiest for me to get to in the amount of time I had was Lockhart Smoke House. Once I finally found parking, I walked through to the back of the restaurant to the counter to order.

The menu isn't large. You can get brisket, pork ribs, half a chicken, and sausage, with a few sides: potato salad, mac & cheese, baked beans, deviled eggs and more.

I avoided some of the burnt edges that were just charred smoke or the fatty pieces. But beyond that, I could fashion a nice little sandwich from the bread, the meat and the sauce.

Lockhart SteakhouseGood meal overall. Heavy on the carnivore. Excuse me while I go eat salads for the next month.
