Just Desserts

Leave a little room on your tray at Dallas' best barbecue joints.
By D Magazine |

Leave a little room on your tray, and in your stomach, for a sweet ending. Like a praline after Tex-Mex, our hands-on research shows that these five desserts will increase your metabolism and keep you from falling asleep on your keyboard. At least that’s what we told ourselves before we fought over the last bite.

1. Whiskey-S’mores Bread Pudding

Lockhart Smokehouse

(both locations)

Day-old bread is baked with heavy cream, marshmallows, chocolate, and whiskey.

2. Crack Cake

Cattleack BBQ

This perfectly sweet, ooey-gooey pie version of a butter cake is addictive.

3. Aunt Polly’s Banana Pudding

Pecan Lodge

This version is thick, rich, and filled with just the right ratio of  banana slices and vanilla wafers.

4. Lemon Bars

Sammy’s Bar-B-Q

A firm cake is saturated with a refreshing tart flavor.

5. World Famous Fried Pies

Peggy Sue BBQ

Crescents of house-made pastry wrap around cherry, chocolate, coconut, apple, or apricot filling.
