Where Alton Brown Ate On His Weekend Jaunt Through Dallas

The Good Eats legend ate barbecue and tacos in Dallas on Sunday.

Food Network fixture and Good Eats legend Alton Brown hit Dallas on Sunday as part of his nationwide Edible Inevitable Tour. Naturally, all that singing, ranting, and demoing crazy cooking contraptions works up an appetite: Brown's two back-to-back performances at downtown's Majestic Theatre were punctuated by meals in the area, as chronicled on Brown's Instagram and Twitter feeds.

Breakfast found Brown at Buzzbrews in Deep Ellum, where he feasted on the Mr. C, a platter of housemade chorizo, peppers and onions with scrambled eggs.

Then of course it was on to barbecue mecca Pecan Lodge. Brown's impressive spread included brisket, sausage, cole slaw, baked beans, and the barbecue-stuffed baked sweet potato known as the Hot Mess.

In between shows Brown snacked on a few slices from Emporium Pies (including the recently debuted macaron pie), declaring the buttermilk pie his favorite.

Late-night hunger following the sold out evening show led him to drunk food staple Fuel City, where he snagged half a dozen tacos (which, judging from the photo, may or may not have been of the al pastor variety) and a cup of elotes.

Rather than sticking to only the biggest markets, Brown's bringing his show to the masses: His next show goes down Tuesday in Wichita, Kansas, to be followed by stops in Des Moines and Nebraska.
