Cattleack Barbeque is a small stripmall joint with very limited hours (lunchtime on Thursdays and Fridays only) and brisket as good as anywhere in Texas. You can order that hand-slice beef by the pound along with ribs, sausage, pork, and turkey, or go the simple route with the Toddfather sandwich, which piles sliced brisket, pork, and hot link sausage on a soft warm bun. Cattleack starts selling barbecue at 10:30 and closes their doors when it’s all sold out, which loyal Dallas fans ensure is sometime in the early afternoon.
