I had heard that this is suppose to be the #2 bbq place in Texas. The sausage and ribs were really good. The pulled pork was just ok and the brisket was really dry. Maybe we just caught them on a bad day. The line was 40' out the door but from the time we got in line until we... More

By all means if you're into local food scenes, BBQ is always on the top list in Texas, and Pecan lodge is one of the best in Dallas. Located with the hippest food (restaurants) district it's not hard to find especially there's always a line one the outside on weekends. They closed on Mondays so all the meat were prepared... More

Live band, ate on paper (a little weird for me), and best brisket ever! We ordered the trough and it had everything! The line was long however we went into the express line because we ordered more than 5 pounds. (Good tip we got). The Mac and cheese, baked beans, collards and banana pudding was so good! We ate so... More

My husband took me here after a visit to the farmers market. There were folks lined up around the block which I hear is par for the course. However, we were going to skip the line and go inside for the express to go line inside but they now require a 5 lb minimum order so we just happened to... More

Spent an hour standing in a queue to get to the ordering counter on a Saturday afternoon. The wait was well worth it - the food experience was just spectacular. Loved the pork ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket, beef burnt ends. The beef ribs were sold out so missed them. A must visit for a meat lover in Dallas. Was... More

Would have rated Pecan Lodge excellent if the Brisket had been less fatty. Smoke Flavor of Brisket was fantastic, just expected it to be much leaner. Sausage and Fried Okra (not greasy at all) were two of our favorites.

Def in my top 4 on the Dallas side of the metroplex. The brisket was really moist and the ribs were decent. (Still haven't compared mike andersons amd smokey johns bbq otherwise pecan lodge would be top 2 BBQ just behind Cattleack BBQ).

You can smell the pecan grill walking down Main Street. Get there early as the lines form and they do run out of brisket. If there are one or two of you, see if bar seating is available. You won't have to wait in line and the bar staff was excellent. I tasted the brisket (excellent), the blackened tips (wonderful),... More

The culmination of my trip to Dallas would not be complete without a gluttonous dining experience at an authentic southern barbeque spot. After extensive research, numerous reviews pointed me in the direction of Pecan Lodge. Pecan Lodge is located in the Deep Ellum district right next to an Emporium Pie location. Side note, I would highly recommend stopping here for... More
