This place was delicious! Loved the ribs, brisket, and coleslaw. The area, Deep Ellum, was fun too - plenty of bars and live music to walk to.

If you've never had BBQ before, this will ruin you for any place you try after. What sets this place apart is that they do everything well, but if I had to make a choice, their best dish is the fall off the bone, beef rib.

Smokiness. Tenderness. Moisture -- ITS ALL THERE in the cuts of meat at Pecan Lodge, one of the famed BBQ institutions in Texas and probably the best in North Texas. Skip the line and go into the express lane you have to order 5 lbs+ though. (shhh, We ordered11 lbs.. ) The meat is so flavorful that I found myself not wanting to use any of the BBQ sauce to cover the taste of the meat. We couldnt finish all our food and I was nibbling at the leftovers at night; I didnt even heat the meat up and all of it tasted amazing with the flavors even more enhanced after sitting in the fridge for the afternoon. Im really glad Pecan Lodge was my first introduction to authentic southern BBQ. We ordered a lot of sides as well and my favorite were the deep fried okra balls.

A slow morning at the pecanlodge opened at 11am, full at 1130; but no line. I may complain that it hasn't stopped raining since we arrived but holy Hanna I'm thrilled I didn't have to wait in crazy MEAT lines with hungry carnivores. #CanadiansinMERICA meatMEAT

The Dallas Municipal Court graciously dismissed me from jury duty (bleh!) around 10:45, and I was already downtown, so I decided to make the most of things. My morning thoroughly wasted, I made my way to the Dallas Farmers Market to taste test the famed Pecan Lodge.

 

Pecan Lodge Dallas BBQ Barbecue Barbeque Bar-B-Que Brisket Sausage Macaroni Mac Cheese Combo

 

I only had an hour and a half on my parking meter, so I hoped that would be enough. I got to Pecan Lodge a little after 11:00, and just as I feared, the line was already around the corner. The long impending wait wasn't very exciting, but I was determined to get some barbecue. Interestingly, I didn't see a single customer approach the tamale shop next door.

 

After an exhausting 45 minutes in line, it was finally my turn to order. They didn't have any burnt ends today, so I settled for a Two Meat Combo Plate: brisket and sausage with a side of "M-m-mac n' Cheese."

 

Pecan Lodge

 

The mac and cheese had delicious bits of bacon crumbled on top that added a great crunch to an otherwise creamy side dish. It looked like there may have been some diced jalapeno mixed in, but I couldn't taste any heat from it, so I'm not entirely sure. It tasted nice and homey, but I didn't wait 45 minutes for macaroni.

 

My plate came with two big slices of brisket, complete with glorious black edges staring at me. I could see the fat laced throughout, so I knew this would be spectacular meat. The first bite was probably some of the best brisket I've ever had, and I sincerely mean that. It was tender enough that my wimpy plastic knife had no trouble cutting through. There was a good amount of salt, pepper, and other spices caked onto the crust, which made each bite extremely flavorful.

 

The sausage came as a small link, which I would guess was around 1/4 to 1/3 pound. The casings were a little weak and had almost no snap, but the strong flavor made up for it. I found lots of cracked pepper visible in each slice I cut. On the downside, the sausage was a tad greasy, made all the more evident by the orange-ish puddle it left on my plate.

 

While I was there, I couldn't resist getting a t-shirt for my precious baby niece, who is definitely my little barbecutie.

The brisket at Pecan Lodge is absolutely worth the wait, but next time I'll try to get there a little earlier.

Best BBQ Ever!

    • 5.0

My wife and I recently traveled to Dallas for a weekend getaway. We have heard about the legendary BBQ served at this place. The stories were all true. This was the best BBQ we have ever had. We got a 3 meat plate with ribs, brisket, and pulled pork. All of it was great but the pulled pork was phenomenal. Next time I think we will each get a pitmaster sandwich. I definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting some great BBQ in a nice atmosphere!
