Business of the Week: Terry Black’s BBQ

If you’ve been in Texas for any extended period of time, odds are, you have strong feelings about Texas Barbecue! A regional staple, and a passion for many, great barbecue abounds in Dallas and our Business of the Week is certainly worthy of that designation. 

Terry Black’s BBQ may be a relative newcomer to Dallas, but Terry Black’s barbecue heritage spans generations! Born and raised in Lockhart, Texas, Terry Black passed down generations of barbecue knowledge learned from his experience in the Lockhart barbecue scene. His twin sons Michael and Mark Black bring their very own style of Central Texas barbecue straight from Lockhart to Deep Ellum. 

Since opening in late 2019, Terry Black’s has quickly become a hot spot for the ultimate Texas-style hangouts! With an expansive two-story patio and plenty of indoor seating, friends and families can gather over a gorgeous spread of smoked meats and margaritas, emulating the feeling of a backyard barbecue in the heart of Deep Ellum. Terry Black’s BBQ covers all the bases of classic Texas ‘cue, including brisket, sausage, turkey, and prehistoric-looking beef ribs. They also put a special spin on traditional sides like mac and cheese, creamed corn, and coleslaw. You should certainly make plans to visit Terry Black’s BBQ with a group of friends so you can try a little bit of everything and then wash it down with a signature Black’s Frozen Margarita! 

Follow the scent of smoked meats to Terry Black’s and enjoy the full Texas Barbecue experience today!
