So, pick a seat, relax with an aromatic glass of wine, and let Chef Fearing take care of the rest.
Pecan Lodge has been named the best barbecue in Dallas two years running, an incredible distinction in Texas where competition is saturated and barbecue aficionados are as scrutinizing as they come. Along with wife Diane, founder and pit master Justin Fourton recreates both of his grandfathers' recipes, fusing West and East Texas into a delicious blend of styles. Burnt Ends is one of the more popular dishes, consisting of meat, fat and crust from brisket that has been twice baked and is packed with barbecue flavor. The mac and cheese is also to die for and comes topped with bacon bits. Be advised, the wait for service is generally slow depending on the crowd, so show up early and be prepared to lick your lips as you take in the aromas wafting from the kitchen.
