I can't rate. Love 407, Lockhart, Pecan Lodge. Need to hit Cattleac. Had Franklin's, Opies, and Smittys and others which are good too. Anyone like Heims in Fort Worth?

Depends on which one you go to. My customers love the one in Roanoke - But I am not a fan. One in the Colony is much better. Also another group likes Meat U anywhere and that one is at the bottom of any list.

I really enjoyed Coopers Llano and Pecan Lodge Dallas. I want to try blacks in Lockhart, Mike Andersons on Harry Hines and Franklins.

Other good places in no certain order is our own 407 and Hutchins in McKinney although last time I ate the Brisket at Hutchins it was very average.


Biggest disappointment was TEN50 BBQ and Kruez in Lockhart, ate at both of them once never again.

I love BBQ and have planned entire road trips around eating bbq, but there are a lot I still haven't tried. Of the ones I have tried, here are my favorites.


My Top 10 in no particular order
Franklin-Austin
Pecan Lodge-Dallas
Freedmen's-Austin
Hutchins-McKinney
Killen's-Pearland
Evie Mae's-Wolfforth
Cattleack BBQ-Dallas
Micklethwait Craft Meats-Austin
Heim - Fort Worth
Louie Mueller's-Taylor

Honorable Mention: Stanley's (Tyler), LA BBQ (Austin), Slow Bone(Dallas), 407(Argyle), Black's(Lockhart), Terry Blacks (Austin), City Market (Luling), Meat U Anywhere BBQ (Grapevine), Stiles Switch (Austin)

Most overrated: Lockhart Smokehouse (Dallas), Hard 8 (any locations), Coopers (Llano location seems better than most, but still far from great), Kruez's (Lockhart, 10 years ago, I would have told you this was my favorite, but last 2 trips there have been less than spectacular and other joints have upped their game), Smitty's (Lockhart), Salt Lick (Driftwood)

Places I haven't tried yet, but are on my list to try:
Snow's (Lexington), John Mueller Black Box (I loved his old place in Austin), Corkscrew BBQ (Spring), Tejas Chocolate Factory(Tomball), Truth BBQ( Brenham), Stillwater BBQ (Abilene), BBQ on the Brazos (Cresson), 2M BBQ (San Antonio)

Places that people seem to enjoy and I don't think is all that great

Hard 8
Saltlick
Slow Bone
Longoria's
Micklethwait

Place I go to the most.

Rudys as I love their breakfast tacos. Always ask for a fresh slice of brisket and on Saturday and Sunday ask for the Prime Rib taco.

Bill millers is to bbq what mcdonalds or Whataburger is to the hamburger world. It is fast food, it shouldn't be on this list. The sides at most of the places on the list cost as much as a meal at bill millers.

For a quick lunch stop or something on the way to the ranch after work I like it and will most of the time pick it over a burger etc. but it isn't and isn't intended to compete with the kraft bbq places around texas and hate it when people knock it like it is.

407 is my present favorite, though I should do more research. Two others I like a lot are the Luling City Market on Richmond Avenue in Houston just inside the west loop, and the Pitmaster on Sawdust Road at the Woodlands. And thereís a BBQ place in Conroe, on 105 I think, that is outstanding. I just canít remember the name.

As for bad bbq, itís all over the place.
