The building is awesome. Watch out walking around the corner for the open pit is right there. The walls are covered in soot and prolly have never been cleaned. Very cool. The ribs are good. My fatty brisquit was too lean. I dunno if the cutter gave me the wrong stuff but it wasn't good. The potato salad was excellent. Next time I'll just do sausage, ribs and the potato salad

The brisket was good, but not crazy good. The turkey and pork rib was "meh". I've had better. I'm confused because this establishment doesn't accept credit cards, but they do have two HDTVs. So, they do know what century we're in. And for whatever reason, they have spoons and knives, but no forks. All in all, I would not drive all the way to Lockhart, Tejas, just for this BBQ. Thankfully, today I didn't.

On our visit to Austin this year we decided to do our own version of "Food Wars" and compared all 4 BBQ Restaurants in Lockhart as we saw on Food Network and Travel Channel shows. Blacks was the HANDS DOWN winner. Best Brisket, Best Sauce, Friendliest Staff. As far as sausage goes, our party was divided and Syd like Blacks the best. I actually liked Kreuz the best for sausage. Smitty's, hands down the worst of the places, although they did have the best spare ribs. When you approach Smitty's just off the town square it smells like you are walking up to a building that has burned down. You open the door and there is a long hallway blackened with soot that you traverse reach the smokers in the back and when you get there you are in the back of a fireplace. There are open fires on the ground of this smoke filled room where you get your meat. Then through doors to get your sides and pay. Beware, of the 4 locations this one is the only one that does not take credit/debit cards. If you are ever in Lockhart I suggest you also try all 4 and see whihch you prefer

Arguably THE most authentic barbeque place in Texas. Has been shown on many national shows about Texas barbeque and written up in the NY Times. Down home atmosphere and no pretense. Get your meats wrapped up in brown paper, and bread or crackers at the pit, then go inside for sides and drinks. Take cash. They don't do credit cards.

Not good. We ordered brisket, ribs and sausage. We also had three side orders. Cold slaw, potato salad and beans. The brisket and ribs were very tough and the ribs were not cooked through. Very chewy, the side orders were almost nonexistent . Never saw such small portions in a Texas Bar-b-q place to eat. Our bill was over 40 dollars. We did not finish but brought the badly cooked meat home for our dogs. And oh! who taught your cook how to make cold slaw? I felt as though I was eating raw chopped cabbage. I should have eaten at Black's

Excellent Price for the best BBQ in Austin. Brisket and Ribs were delicious. A local advised me to eat the Sausage and while it was good, a little too greasy for my taste. Will definitely come back next time I'm in Austin.

On our Sunday trip back to Houston we drove the long way around through Lockhart to pick up some tasty BBQ. Black's had it's typical line out the door and Kreuz was closed so I figured I would try Smitty's for the first time. The fatty brisket was AWESOME, ribs good, and sausage had a good flavor but upon cutting into it the consistency was not solid but more crumbling apart. We will give it another try in the future.
