I have had so much BBQ in my life that I can hands down say the Pecan Lodge has a perfect balance of smoke, sauce, and tenderness to the meat. The service is excellent even when crowds wrap around the exterior. One unique thing is fried chicken on the platter instead of BBQ chicken. I have never had that at any BBQ establishment, and I must say the fried chicken is superbly crispy, seasoned, and juicy. For more on the Pecan Lodge check out their website http://www.pecanlodge.com/ This is one stop you need to make while in Dallas, Texas.

Deep Ellum is an urban oasis just East of downtown Dallas, Texas. All throughout the area one will find eclectic shops and independent business along with excellent food. While visiting, I took a few photos of the area. Have a look, enjoy, and make your own visit. I promise you will not be disappointed.

It’s always nice to have a new bird drop by. This is a Canadian visitor. Welcome to Texas Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker!

I recently visited Bayou Bend the magnificent estate of Ms. Ima Hogg, the daughter of James S. Hogg, first native-born governor of Texas. It is a beautiful 14 acres, historical, and a great place to take photos. Here are a few from my trip.
