Pecan Lodge Moving To Deep Ellum

brewbq2by Steven Doyle

I had a pretty good conversation with Justin Fourton, co-owner and BBQ Magistrate at Pecan Lodge,  last week at the conclusion of Meat Fight. We discussed the possibility of Pecan Lodge moving out of its current location at the Dallas Farmers Market. He asked where I thought he was moving to and I said good money was riding on Deep Ellum. He confirmed off the record, and said that it made the most sense. He wanted a venue where he could host large parties and do more with the brand that just shovel out delicious BBQ.

Today we were sent a release from Diane Fourton (Boss Lady), and the cat is now officially out of the bag. Deep Ellum is indeed where Pecan Lodge will move to, making that section of Dallas even stronger. Don’t forget, these guys also make some of the best fried chicken in the state.

Justin and I are pleased to announce our decision to stay in Dallas and relocate Pecan Lodge to Deep Ellum.

It has been a privilege to be part of the community of independent growers, farmers and small business owners at the Dallas Farmers Market, and we will always treasure our experience there. However, after careful thought and consideration, we believe a separate location of our own will best meet the needs of our customers and our growing business. We are very grateful to the Dallas Farmers Market for providing a foundation upon which a tiny, independently-owned business could grow and thrive for more than 3 ½ years.

Deep Ellum offers a unique opportunity for us to accomplish our goals for Pecan Lodge while also being part of an exciting community revitalization project, lead by Scott Rohrman of 42 Real Estate. We believe in Scott’s vision for Deep Ellum and look forward to helping restore this amazing, historic neighborhood in Dallas.

Construction on the new location will begin soon. Until construction is complete, Pecan Lodge will remain open at the Dallas Farmers Market, operating under normal business hours (ok, normal for us), Wed-Sun, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm or until we sell out.

We will continue to share more specific details about our progress and transition plans as they become available.
