If you’re looking for barbecue in Dallas, Lockhart Smokehouse should be your first stop. It’s a classic counter-service place where the staff will be happy to give you a taste of anything on the menu to try it first. The standouts are the brisket and ribs, both of which are always available, though it’s worth stopping by on Wednesdays for the beef rib or Thursdays for their burnt ends. As for the sides, don’t skip the jalapeno mac and cheese or blue cheese potato salad.
