Lockhart Smokehouse

Are you ready for some great barbecue? Check out Lockhart Smokehouse in Oak Cliff. They’ll start with a thoroughly blackened brisket, slice it with such ease that you can already tell how tender it will be, and serve it to you wrapped in paper. Ask for sauce and utensils and you’ll learn that this meat melts in your mouth with flavor that makes sauce unnecessary. The sides are terrific as well, and the guys behind the counter will help you choose with tempting descriptions. They obviously take pride in what they do, and it’s well-deserved. We didn’t even stay for the live music, but we understand the line’s out the door in the evenings. It’s at 400 W. Davis, right at Bishop Ave. in the Bishop Arts District.

Aunt Stelle’s

One more weekend and summer is officially over! Aunt Stelle’s Sno Cones will be open Labor Day weekend including Monday and then no more sno cones until until Summer ’11! I’ve meant to get there all summer and finally checked out this highly recommended spot today. It lived up to my expectations. It’s the ultimate sno cone stand. Located right in a residential neighborhood of Oak Cliff and shaded by a huge pecan tree, this decades-old institution had a steady stream of driving and pedestrian customers. Truly snowy ice and 29 flavors that they’ll mix as you like – great refreshment on a hot day. Open last Sunday in April through Labor Day, 2pm until exactly 9:00 Mondays through Thursdays. Located at 2002 W. Clarendon in Oak Cliff.
