Here is our Detroit restaurant review for Lockhart’s BBQ (202 E 3rd St., Royal Oak MI) in Royal Oak, Michigan.
Now that I like BBQ, I enjoy trying new BBQ restaurants. I had an opportunity to meet a couple of friends at Lockhart’s BBQ in Royal Oak, Michigan recently.
Lockhart’s smells like BBQ when you walk in and is very brightly lit. It has a cool, laid back atmosphere.
They also have a good list of Michigan craft beers, so I ordered a Short’s (Bellaire, MI) Huma Lupa Licious IPA which I’ve mentioned on this blog before because it truly is one of my favorite beers. While I was waiting for my friends, the server brought out some pickles & pickled onions (and on stray pickled carrot). These were very good & had a little zip to them which went well with the beer.
I ordered a 3 meat combo for my dinner, which also came with 2 side dishes. So I chose Lean Braised Beef, Pulled Pork & Smoked Turkey with Mac & Cheese and Sweet Potato Mash (suggested by our server).
