If you’re looking for a BBQ that falls off the bone, that doesn’t require sauce and has more flavor than your mouth can take, then head over to Lockhart’s Smokehouse located in the Bishop Arts District.
Lockhart’s Smokehouse is tucked away off of W. Davis where Oak Cliff thrives with restaurants and eclectic stores. Upon entering Lockhart’s for your first time you might be confused with the ordering process. There is a counter where you order by the amount of pounds of different meat. If you’re lucky enough to go there while it’s slow, the butcher will give you a taste of the meat before ordered and explain the cooking process.
After you order, you will be handed your meat nicely wrapped in a butcher sheet. This is the confusing part. You may think, “How am I suppose to eat this? Where is my plate?” Well, there are no plates. You eat directly off of the butcher sheet. This might seem odd but it’s not nearly as bad as you think. Along with no plates, they don’t open-handedly offer utensils or BBQ sauce. They claim their BBQ is so good that you don’t need sauce, and who eats BBQ with a fork? For those of you who are concerned about the no plates, forks or BBQ sauce – have no fear, the food is delicious and you won’t be disappointed.
If you don’t know what to order, ask the butcher what he recommends. The sides are more than delicious and pair perfectly with the large assortment of meat that is offered. Lockhart’s is by far one of the best BBQ Smokehouses in Dallas. What do you think? Where is your favorite BBQ Smokehouse in Dallas?
