Great Texas BBQ - you get in line and order at the counter THEN get a table. They will call you name and ticket number when your food is ready. We had the brisket and ribs (and Mac-n-Cheese) and a pulled pork sandwich. All was...More

If there is better BBQ I cannot imagine it. Consistently outstanding. There is a reason there is almost always a line. Beef ribs and brisket are amazing but my favorite is burnt ends.

I don't usually dig mac and cheese, but order it here! It's amazing! And the meat's great, too. We went right at lunchtime, but I've heard that going sometime in the 11am hour, or 1:30ish is better.

We had a work gathering and the entire restaurant to ourselves Unlimited food so I tried everything. Great across the board - brisket, ribs, sausage, turkey, chicken, etc. Sides were all top notch. Beer was cold.

Beef, pork, Sausage, and all the fixings... Pecan Lodge is rated one of the top 10 barbecue places in Dallas and the five surrounding counties. I believe it is number one. The prices are reasonable, the service good; you won't be disappointed.

This was by far our favorite restaurant in Dallas. People recommended this place highly so we made a point of stopping. We were warned that it would be crowded and a long wait but that it was worth going. We went around 2 and had...More

When I went it was about an hour and 1/2 before closing and the line was huge. But thankfully another member of my party went in and discovered that we could get a larger shareable portion. So I definitely recommend going as group and if...More

Not when we were there. Chicken is a good substitute for meat and shouldn't take up room in a smoker
