Los Angeles 'hound ISO finger lickin' BBQ!

The Oracle | Sep 19, 2011 03:55 PM

I'm heading to Dallas for 4 days and 3 nights. Not sure where we are staying yet - likely downtown, with a visit up to McKinney for at least a day.

During that time, I want to experience to-die-for-BBQ. So much so, we are basing our itinerary around all things food. (Our last trip was to Portland, OR, where we discovered Pine State Biscuits (thanks to other 'hounds). Best biscuit/egg sandwiches I've ever had. It was so good and we visited it 3 times in 5 days. Besides the Columbia Gorge, it was the highlight of our time there. I'm looking for a similar find (or finds!) in Dallas.

I've spent some time researching the threads and it seems like there is a consensus that good BBQ cannot be found in Dallas.... however, I have to believe it's better than what we get in Los Angeles! So, from that perspective, I'm hoping that I'll be wow'd.

On my radar so far are the following:
Off The Bone
Big Daddy Roadhouse
Baby Back Shak

What am I missing? Lockhart isn't on my list because it seems a tad gimmicky and the no-sauce available was a turn-off.

Are Bone Daddy or Mike Anderson worth a stop?

We usually order ribs (beef or pork) when we have BBQ - but are not limited to that and both love a good beef brisket.

Thanks in advance!
