Food Scene
Texas is known for good BBQ, but Pecan Lodge is the holy grail of BBQ, and it doesn’t get much better than this. Lines start wrapping around the building starting at 10 but well worth the wait. **TIP** If you plan on ordering 5+ lbs of meat, skip the line and head inside straight to the express line where you can order right away
