When it comes to barbecue, Texas doesn’t mess around. Find your new favorite spot with this quick and saucy list of four killer barbecue joints around Carrollton.

Hard Eight BBQ

Hard Eight is a family-owned restaurant with a rustic atmosphere and Southern hospitality. Here, you can get meat by the pound – directly from the person who cooked your food. Visit the pitmaster to pick out your meal, and if it’s a Friday or Saturday, sit down to enjoy some live music, as well. Need more barbecue? You can have meat and their signature sauces shipped directly to your door.

Old House BBQ

At Old House BBQ, you’ll find no fuss, no muss, just ‘cue. They offer meal platters with a variety of meats to taste and your choice of sides. They claim to be the best darn barbecue joint in town, but we’ll let you be the judge of that.

Marshall’s Bar-B-Q

Marshall’s is all about honoring Texas tradition when it comes to slow smoking their briskets and meats, ensuring every meal is juicy, moist, and delicious. No dried-out barbecue allowed. Obsessed with the sauce? You can take it home by the gallon. Finally, a restaurant that understands.

Barrel and Bones

With classic brisket, fall-off-the-bone ribs, and spicy jalapeno sausage, Barrel and Bones honors traditional recipes with a little twist of their own. The best part? Their food truck opens up at Lux on Main daily from 11 AM - 2 PM. You don’t have to go far for good ‘cue.
