Best Restaurants For Fried Chicken In Dallas

by Steven Doyle

We love our fried chicken, and have been seeking out the very best Dallas has to offer. We scoured the streets and found some with an ethnic twist, others are straight forward crispy fried and juicy.

We had to eliminate a few that didn’t qualify as traditional, such as Bon Mua’s fried Cornish hen, which is still worth making the drive to Carrollton.  In making our list we were shocked at how many plates of fried chicken we had sampled over the past months. Col Sanders would have said he was too drunk to taste that chicken after just a few of these places.

Pecan Lodge Begins Construction In Deep Ellum

pecan lodgeby Steven Doyle

Most of the barbecue loving public in Dallas knows some of the very best exists in the Dallas Farmers Market where you most often must wait in line for several hours to procure the lush brisket and very meaty ribs. It is time well spent communing with fellow passengers on the path to enlightenment. Pecan Lodge is a religious experience.

Word has spread like wildfire that Pecan Lodge is moving into new digs at 2702 Main Street in Deep Ellum. This has two very far reaching effects. First, you will no longer be waiting in line for barbecue (we assume). The new larger space will house far more than just slices of savory brisket, fried chicken and that giant haunch of pulled pork infused sweet potato, the Hot Mess. You will be allowed a beer or cocktail with your ‘cue, and there will be event space for those unruly holiday parties. And the menu will stretch its culinary legs and offer much more than the standard Pecan Lodge fare.    Continue reading

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.  Continue reading

Pecan Lodge Not An Odd Couple With Local High School

houserby Steven Doyle

I can still sing the WT White High School alma mater, and most likely can point out my old locker. Now I have a chance to possibly do both while enjoying Pecan Lodge BBQ at the North Dallas high school located at 4505 Ridgeside. The school has secured some of the best BBQ the city has to offer to be served during a production of The Odd Couple. I have it on good authority that the owners of Pecan Lodge did not attend the high school, but the daughter of Dallas’ beloved chef and Executive Director of Cafe Momentum does.   Continue reading
