Yum! Ever Eaten At This Texas Restaurant That Guy Fieri Calls His Favorite?
I don't know about you but in our household, Guy Fieri is the ultimate food critic. I am not one to argue with The Mayor of Flavortown! We can sit and watch his show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives for an entire Saturday afternoon. This guy is 100% a foodie and to me an expert when it comes to finding all the best places to eat from coast to coast.
I mean he's been hosting DDD on the Food Network for as long as I can remember. I think I was pregnant with my now 16-year-old son when he first started.
I remember a year or two ago I did an article about the places in Texas that Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives have visited. Places that Guy Fieri himself deemed worthy of a stop in the Lonestar State. You can read that here.
But I wonder and I'm sure many Guy fans and fans of the show have too, 'which is Guy Fieri's favorite restaurant in the entire state of Texas?'
The answer to that is the Pecan Lodge in Dallas, TX in Deep Elum.
WHAT KIND OF RESTAURANT IS PECAN LODGE IN DALLAS?
Pecan Lodge is Dallas' most award-winning barbecue joint. According to their website, the owners Justin and Diane believe that,
THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE SMOKED.
And clearly, Guy Fieri thinks that too since he has named Pecan Lodge his favorite here in Texas. If you plan to pay a visit next time you're in the Dallas area, consider yourself warned, the wait will be long but the food is absolutely worth it!
