Recent Closings in Lewisville

I went up to Lewisville yesterday to try a few places I'd heard good things about. After getting a good sandwich from Dusty's Bar-B-Q trailer off of Swisher Road, I headed south to try Hickory Hut Bar-B-Que Cafe, but found a closed sign and a make shift market stand selling fresh veggies. According to the vegetable seller, the restaurant owner had some recurring problems with a difficult landlord, so they pulled out of the joint and are now focused on their catering according to the message on their voicemail. A trip to downtown led me to another closure. It seems that the proprietors of RW's Smokehouse have also been locked out of their place since 11/12, and their disconnected phone makes me think they don't have plans to return. If anyone knows any more details, please comment.

Dallas BBQ Catering - NEVS BBQ said...

While I can't tell you what happened to RW's Smokehouse, I would like to throw a recomendation out there for an amazing BBQ Catering company out of the Metroplex area. NEVS BBQ is my new favorite caterer. They make some amazing food, and the owner is a really interesting guy. He runs the company, and is also the executive chef of a really high end steak house in Carrollton. They make everything from scratch, and they cook it till it's falling apart!

Thanks for the update on Lewisville, hopefully this doesn't become a trend. Texas has the best BBQ on the planet!


Each joint is judged on the essence of Texas 'cue...sliced brisket and pork ribs. Sausage is only considered if house made. Sauce is good, but good meat needs no adornment to satisfy. Each review can only be based on specific cuts of meat on that particular day. Finally, if the place fries up catfish or serves a caesar salad, then chances are they aren't paying enough attention to the pits, so we mostly steered clear.
