Time for BBQ

guanxi | Aug 18, 2012 12:05 PM

I'll be in DFW for around 36 hours on Labor Day weekend, and would very much like to squeeze in some great BBQ. I'm an enthusiastic foodie -- I'm tempted to drive to Louie Mueller for lunch -- but some companions have other passions in life.

I did my homework and found Lockhart Smokehouse, Pecan Lodge, Sweet Georgia Brown, Off the Bone (near Arlington), and Longoria. The problem is, our only opportunity is Saturday, and we're staying at a hotel near the airport and going to a 7pm game at Cowboys Stadium.

How do I get great BBQ without my compatriots waiting on long lines (a risk at a restaurant on Labor Day Saturday) or enduring heavy traffic (if we don't eat near the stadium)? I'm hoping a local can advise. For example, perhaps the traffic from Off the Bone to the stadium won't be so bad?

Thanks very much in advance!
