Lockhart's BBQ Restaurant Review: Determined to offer Southern-style 'cue in the Metro Detroit area, Drew Ciora and Rick Ghersi opened Lockhart's BBQ, named after Lockhart, Texas, a serious barbecue town. Ciora and Ghersi use one of the few, if not the only, 100 percent wood-fueled smokers in this part of the state. Besides smoked brisket, chicken and pork, Red Hot sausage and pulled pork, there are other staples of a true Texas barbecue restaurant, including tamales and Texas Rockets, fresh peppers grilled and stuffed with goat cheese, cream cheese, caramelized onions and smoked sausage. Don’t forget to try the “Ugly Smoked Gumbo” made with chicken and sausage and served on white rice. You'll also find pecan pie and classic chocolate Dr. Pepper cake. Mind you, Lockhart’s BBQ is not afraid to show off its northern roots. There are artisan beers from Michigan on tap and Bloody Marys and mimosas for Sunday brunch.
