Hard Eight has three locations, but I always go to the one in Coppell because it is closest to my house. You will not find find this restaurant on the Texas Monthly Top 50 Barbecue Joints list, but it is one of my local favorites. In addition to your typical barbecue meats, they also have one of the best pork chops in DFW, chicken poppers, and shrimp poppers. The behemoth pork chops are two inches thick and have a nice smoky flavor. The poppers are bacon wrapped chicken or shrimp bites with jalapeño and onion. Hard Eight has several impressive side dishes, but their complimentary beans are hard to pass up.
