Salt Lick BBQ
Driftwood, TX
Latest Review
Nominated as the Manliest Restaurant in 2011 because although BBQ bonafides are subjective, with consensus scattered into fierce factions—the vinegar zealots, the dry-rubbers, the tomato-based titans; even the South Carolinian mustard mavens. Yet many of the country’s finest practitioners of the craft agree that the Texas Hill Country region houses an unparalleled collection of greats, and that the Salt Lick’s succulent sausages, brisket, and ribs are especially worth the trip

The Original Black’s Barbecue
Lockhart, TX
Latest Review
100 percent Angus beef brisket, fall-off-the-bone pork spare ribs, and giant whole BBQ chickens—but for most visitors, the smoky, house-made sausage rings laced with jalapeño and cheese are what makes Black's Number 1

Good Day Cafe
Arlington, TX
Latest Review
A Texas influenced menu with Tex-Mex,Sandwiches ,Burgers, Salads, and a whole lot of entrees. Chicken fried steak, Chicken fried chicken,Catfish,Shrimp,Pork Chops,Steaks and sides. Biscuits, of course, are a signature menu item at most breakfast houses, and Good Day’s biscuits are homemade, distinctive, and delicious: tall and square, with a consistency more like that of cake than biscuits and a slightly sour, salty aftertaste that made them a lot better with butter than a sweet biscuit would have been. The side of cream gravy was smooth and gooey without being gloppy, a little peppery, and savory with the light taste of pork pan drippings.

Lockhart Smokehouse
Dallas, TX
Latest Review
Jill Grobowsky Bergus grew up steeped in the legacy of great BBQ. Her grandfather, Edgar "Papa" Schmidt ran the legendary Kreuz Market from the time he purchased it from the Kreuz family in 1948.She and her husband, Jeff are fulfilling one of their wildest dreams.Kismet and Jack Daniels brought them Pitmaster Tim McLaughlin, who trained in the original Kreuz Market in Lockhart. Lockkhart Smokehouse is the only place in the DFW area where you can get Kreuz Market Sausage. And just like the original, the meat is served on butcher paper, without sauce and without forks. The meat doesn't need sauce and your fork is at the end of your arm. The brisket, sausage, ribs and other meats are smoked over Texas post oak. Updated versions of classic southern sides and some Schmidt family favorites round out the menu. Of course, what is Texas barbeque without cold beer? Lockhart Smokehouse has the great ones ice cold and ready for your drinking pleasure.
