Lakewood Smokehouse opened this month at 1901 Abrams Rd, Dallas in the space recently left vacant by Ali Baba Mediterranean Grill. Bringing Lakewood this new BBQ concept are Partners-Owner Operators, Jason Hall (who owns 3 Stacks Smoke & Tap House in Frisco), John Pantenburg, and Mike Mullen who have been friends and co-workers in the restaurant industry for 20 years.
Lakewood Smokehouse serves classic BBQ such as brisket, smoked turkey and sausages with an array of sides like macaroni and cheese, fried okra, green beans and potato salad. Patrons to Lakewood Smokehouse can expect the same quality and delicious BBQ that has made 3 Stacks a household name in Frisco, with a few exciting additions. Unlike the casual line-service most BBQ establishments employ, Lakewood Smokehouse is a full-service restaurant. Continue reading

Barbecue has to be one of the most satisfying meals a Texan could ever wish to enjoy. And nothing says barbecue like the big beef rib at Lockhart Smokehouse located in Oak Cliff (Bishop Arts) and downtown Plano. As the name would imply, it is big, it is bountiful and it is meaty.
Forget the holiday turkey, your table needs to be adorned with beefy ribs, brisket and whole smoked chickens (the latter at a bargain rate of a mere twelve bucks for an entire yard bird). Add an armload of meat-filled deviled eggs, smoked baked beans and some crunchy blue cheese slaw and you have a feast for the masses. Continue reading

The couple quickly developed a devoted following, receiving high acclaim for their signature Texas-style barbecue.

18th & Vine BBQ, an upscale Kansas City barbeque, full-service restaurant and bar, will open to the public on Tuesday, October 6th at 4100 Maple Avenue in Dallas across from Crow Holdings’ Old Parkland business offices.
Husband and wife team Matt and Kimi Dallman (original creators of the concept), in partnership with chef Scott Gottlich, have developed a unique menu in a comfortable yet casually chic environment designed by Brooke Roberson Interiors with build out by Mitchell Garman Architects. “Traditional Kansas City BBQ will always be a part of the menu options for those interested in a pure barbeque experience. However, the collaboration between myself and Scott gives us the opportunity to combine talents and knowledge of a classically trained chef with a self-taught pitmaster to push the boundaries of what can be accomplished with smoke and other barbeque techniques,” explains Dallman.
