Since the summer began, a few friends and I have been on a hunt for DFW’s best, non franchise barbecue. We began our journey at Lockhart Smokehouse in Dallas’s Bishop Arts District, and four our second tweatup (which I didn’t write about…my bad…) we ventured to Hard 8 BBQ in Coppell. For Tweatup Number three, we decided to try Marshall’s BBQ in Carrolton.
To be honest, it was very meh. It will suffice…if you happen to be driving in Carrollton, TX, along Rosemeade Parkway, and happen to see it. It was definitely decent; The meat was decent, and they had a few different sauces to try out. Their meat was certainly better than their sides though. The fries were good. The mac and cheese was not. I wanted some peach cobbler, but it looked like it had been sitting out a little too long, and seeing how it was under a heat lamp, wasn’t staged in the most pleasing environment.
It also didn’t seem like their decor had changed since the 80s. Many restaurants are featuring Flat-screen TVs now in their dining area; they’re still rocking a big screen. It was totes retro.
I guess when our tweatups started out with a few of the best barbeque joints in the metroplex, we may have been spoiled a little. There was no where to go but down.
Hopefully in the next few months, our next BBQ Tweatups will be restored to their former glory.
Does anyone know any awesome barbecue restaurants in Dallas we should try out?
