Well we did it again. My wife and I had BBQ for lunch. This place known as Pecan Lodge was on Diners, Drives-ins and Dives so we knew it had to be good BBQ. We saw people on Yelp that recommended to show up early because once they sell out of something, it's gone. And the food goes quick. When we arrived there was already a line across the room. We decided it must be worth it if everyone else was doing it. We waited about 45 minutes in line and our anticipation grew with each step towards the front. We were concerned that they could run out of something we wanted and when we got to the front we heard they had run out of ribs. At first this saddened us, then we tasted our food and completely forgot all about ever wanting ribs.
I got the combo plate with brisket and their homemade sausage with a side salad, since most other sides are a carb nightmare. Holy cow!!! It was incredible. The brisket was the tenderest smokiest BBQ I have ever had in my entire life. It was so juicy and smokey and tasted like what I can only imagine BBQ was ment to be like. The sausage was so full of flavor and authentic. You could tell this was BBQ that a lot of love and time went into. We were lucky we got there when we did cause they started running out of things fast with the people behind us. Definitely worth the wait. I would come here again if this was my town.
My wife got one of the specialty items called the "hotmess" which is a baked sweet potato with barbacoa, chipotle sour cream, bacon, and chives. She loved it but I stayed away for obvious reasons.
