For the past two weeks my wife and I visited our youngest son and his family in Dallas.  We were on a mission—all three had the flu at some time during the previous two weeks so we were making efforts to get them back among the living.  Our main purpose was caring for and watching our nine (9) month old grandson while mom and dad recovered and went back to work.

We had a little free time on the Friday prior to our leaving for home in Chattanooga so we stopped in for a late lunch at the “Lakewood Smokehouse”.  This turned out to be a very pleasant surprise.  As you know, Texas is known for brisket.  In my opinion, the best does come from Texas.  Our waiter (shown in the picture below) was GREAT and had all the answers.  The entire staff made us feel right at home and were very accommodating.

I will not display the entire menu but a small portion is given below:

The actual menu is a little smaller than a bed sheet.  All “typical” BBQ items were given on the menu including my choice—LOADED BAKED POTATO.  I do mean loaded.  A digital picture of that spud is shown below.  My first car was a 1993 grey Ford Falcon. I was the very proud third owner.  My loaded potato at Lakewood was slightly smaller than my first car.   It was HUGE and filled with Texas brisket AND just about every condiment you can name. (Hold the sour cream.)

As I mentioned earlier, the Lakewood Smokehouse was a very pleasant surprise for us.  I can definitely recommend it to you the next time you are in big “D”.  Just ask for the Lakewood Shopping Center.  You can’t miss the sign.
