bbq ribs | best bbq in Dallas

Barbeque is a very popular food in the Dallas area. There are many things to love about barbeque, from the irresistible aroma to the tantalizing taste of sauces ranging from spicy to savory. Here at NTS Contractors, we may specialize in concrete and parking lot repair, but we’re also familiar with restaurants that have some of the best BBQ in Dallas.

Cattleack Barbeque

Cattleack Barbeque makes the list not only because it is on the list of the best barbeque in Texas by Texas Monthly, but because it is a local favorite for many Dallas natives. While the strip-mall setting may deceive people at first, once they taste the homemade barbeque they will no longer care about the location. The family-owned business makes some of the most delicious ribs available. Other favorite foods include the beef brisket, the pulled pork, and the hot link sausage. For those with a sweet tooth, the crack cake is a perfect dessert. 

The Cattleack has extremely limited hours, only open on Thursdays and Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the first Saturday of the month from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Pecan Lodge

Pecan Lodge not only ranks high on Texas Monthly’s list of the state’s best BBQ in Dallas, but the restaurant had spots on popular shows including Food Network’s Diners and Drive-Ins and Dives. The mouth-watering ribs are just a fraction of the wonderful foods on offer. Two different types of homemade sausage, mesquite-smoked brisket, and pulled pork are a few more of the culinary delights available at Pecan Lodge. With an enjoyable ambiance to match, the outdoor patio features live music to enhance the dining experience. Dessert is on the menu featuring the incomparable Aunt Polly’s banana pudding, which tastes even better than it sounds.

Slow Bone

The first thing people notice about Slow Bone may be its unusual decor, like the guitars and motorcycle that hang from the walls and ceiling. The second thing they probably notice is how delicious the food tastes. The barbeque ribs are amazing but Slow Bone also makes some of the best fried chicken in the Dallas area. Some other unique specialties include Frito pie and a Brussels sprouts and cauliflower gratin. Dessert is on the menu here too, with a delicious cornbread pudding that’s worth every calorie.

18th and Vine Barbeque

The most significant feature of the barbeque ribs at 18th and Vine Barbeque is the fact that the ribs are traditional Kansas City style, slathered with a sweet glaze. Pulled pork, spicy pepper sausage, and jalapeno-cheese grits are some of the other specialties at 18th and Vine, which the website describes as an upscale Kansas City barbeque restaurant and bar. Dessert is an option here as well, with fried apple pie topping the recommendation list.
