Tim Love’s ode to smoked meats and woodfire cooking sits on the banks of the Trinity River. There’s a dining room and bar inside, but the best seats are on the spacious patio, which overlook the water and the adjacent trail. There you’ll see runners gazing in envy at your table full of pork ribs, lamb brisket, and a massive open-fire paella loaded with shrimp, mussels, sausage, and smoked game hen. Be sure to wave.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating.
