A Bishop Arts District restaurant made Texas Monthly’s list of the “top 50 barbecue joints in Texas.”

Lockhart Smokehouse is one of just three places in Dallas to make the list, along with Cattleack Barbecue and Pecan Lodge.

Here’s what the magazine says about Lockhart:

It’s all in the family here. Co-founder Jill Grobowsky Bergus’s grandfather was Edgar Schmidt, the man who made Kreuz Market famous. That’s why three of the Lockhart joint’s specialties show up here: two great sausages and the cut known as shoulder clod. If you order actual brisket, you may find the best bites come from around its beautifully crusted edges. As for pork, the pulled stuff is nothing special, but the ribs are quite nice, with a magnificent bark. On Wednesdays, share a scandalously salted and peppered beef rib, a thing of shock and awe. There are antique signs galore on the walls, and tall ceilings with exposed rafters. Oh, and a full bar.

Also on the list is Top 5 BBQ in DeSoto: “The flawlessly smoked, heartier brisket and beef ribs were rapper Jay Z’s favorite during a recent visit to Texas. Note also the sides and desserts, all scratch-made by Greene’s wife, Davetta. The collard greens and mac and cheese are standouts, as is the peach cobbler”

Could be worth the trip down Interstate 35.
