Acclaimed BBQ spot offering meats fresh from the smoker in a no-frills space with communal tables.- Google
"Excellent sausage, prime rib, fatty and lean brisket."
"So if you manage to not fall in the fire can order sub par bbq."

I managed 8 classic Central Texas joints in 4 days: Franklin, Louie Mueller, Cranky Franks, Smitty's, Blacks, Kreuz, City Market, and Harmons. Smitty's landed at 7th place on the list overall. What a disappointment. The moist brisket was dry and in serious need of salt (which was a huge problem for all of us at several joints, in fact). Pork ribs were dry but had a decent flavor. Regular and jalapeno sausages were pretty good. The staff there, however, was very cool. Overall rankings: 1st place: Franklin Barbecue, Austin 2nd place: Cranky Franks, Fredericksburg 3rd place: Harmons, Cibolo 4th place: Blacks, Lockhart 5th place: Louie Mueller, Taylor 6th place: Kreuz, Lockhart 7th place: Smittys, Lockhart 8th place: City Market, Luling

Smitty's is THE best BBQ in this state and their sausage is 2nd to none. I don't understand all these people who say their sauce sucks when they don't have sauce. In fact, nothing at Smitty's needs sauce in the first place so I guess these people complaining are planted in here just to give bad reviews so....whatever. Everything at Smitty's is great - don't believe the haters, their just suckin' on sour grapes

Smitty's is my favourite BBQ experience in Texas. Driving to Lockhart is like making a pilgrimage to some great BBQ holy land. Having been to the main contenders in this Mecca of brisket, I prefer Smitty's. I like standing in line in the hallway that is black with char-residue, where you can imagine your grandparents waiting with the walls were fairer in hue. Passing next to the pits to order your meat you feel the heat and your clothes smell will soak in the fact that you have passed thru. The brisket and sausage are passed on wax paper and there isn't a fork to be found in the building (yes, your hands). The sides are passable and a whole avocado (which apparently predates the side of pickles) adds a different flavour to the mix. Smitty's isn't my favourite BBQ in TX as far as the meat goes...but it is the best Texas BBQ experience.

Great place that I drive out of my way to eat at whenever I'm headed out west (I live in Houston). I only wish they kept longer hours so I don't miss out on their delicious eats.

About half an hour south of Austin is this divey bbq joint that has some of the best meats you'll ever taste. Really old school, no frill place, with an oven that gets so hot, especially in the summer that you wonder how anyone can work there in that heat. There is not a lot of fancy going on here, just pick up your meats wrapped in paper and dig in with your hands. The ribs are tender, the sausages are smokey. It's everything you'd expect in Texas BBQ.

Very hot when standing in line next to the smokers! Good brisket, and I liked the sauce too. Only cash or checks are accepted. There's a little icecream booth in the eating area if you'd like some dessert.

Sausage was the best in Austin area. Went to salt lick, franklins, iron works, lamberts, kreuz, blacks, southside market, meyers, and louie muellers. Smittys was my favorite.
