Perhaps Dallas’ worst-kept secret, just getting into this cult destination can feel like cause for celebration. You’ll almost certainly encounter a line, and it’s mostly outside. Plus the place is only open for a few hours (10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.) on Thursdays and Fridays. But as they say: Good things come to those who wait. And one of those good things is free beer to drink while you’re queue for the ‘cue. As for the rest, house-made sausages, gargantuan-sized pork ribs and generously charred Akaushi beef brisket compete for your attention with other equally tasty contenders like Wagyu pastrami burnt ends and sandwiches that come crammed with hot links, brisket and pulled pork. Be sure to save room for the crack cake, it’s wickedly good.
