About Texas Jack’s Barbecue
We’d be happy dining at this cavernous Lyon Park place even if we didn’t eat meat. The sides—whether a warm salad of corn done up elote-style with cilantro and cotija, an eggy potato salad, or crispy Brussels sprouts tossed in lemon and Parmesan—are that tasty. Still, A-plus accoutrements aren’t enough to land a place on this list. Killer brisket, addictive smoked wings, and a tasty pulled-pork sandwich topped with Sriracha pickles are. Happy hour offers great deals, including a $6 burger and a plate of brisket-topped nachos. Also good: Brisket-and-queso sandwich; kale salad.
