I've recently been trying a lot of local Dallas/Fort Worth metro area BBQ joints, and Pecan Lodge is the best I've had, out of half a dozen highly-rated places. I've been to Pecan Lodge twice, and it was excellent both times. The fatty brisket is incredible, which is my personal preference in smoked meats. They also have deep-fried pork ribs which are unbelievably good, and a great value, as well. (Most other places haven't even had deep-fried ribs as an option.) I've also had the jalapeno sausage there, and the bacon mac 'n' cheese, both tasty. And, while there was a line both times, the wait was no more than 15 minutes.

Went there on a Friday night and it was busy. The line to order was fairly long but it went quickly and our food also came out quickly. We sat on the patio where there was a band. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great!

Ate lunch at the Lodge today. The food was outstanding. Expected a long wait and we were not disappointed. Arrived at the restaurant about noon. There were about 25 people in line before we got to the front door. However, once you get in the door, you have to go all the way around the side of the restaurant until you get to the ordering counter in the back. Overall, it was about a 40 minute wait.

The meats are generally ordered by the half pound (brisket, pulled pork, pork ribs, burnt ends, sausage, etc.). You can also order 2 or 3 meat combo plates with one side.

Note, if you are ordering 5 pounds of food or more, you can skip the line and go right to the "express" order counter in the back.

Once we ordered, it only took about 10 minutes to get the food (they call your name & number). Make sure that you get a small cup of the sauces that are available in the back (there are no sauces on the table). You can have either pork or BBQ sauce. As I said before, the food is outstanding. I will be returning, and I will not mind waiting once again.

Note that the restaurant opens at 11:00, and during the week it is only open until 3:00 (unless they run out of meat sooner). They are open for dinner on Fridays and Saturdays.
