Holy smokes, this place is soooo bad. First, you walk in and you almost step on an open fire and its so hot, you feel like your being burned. Then, you have to buy your meat separate from your sides and drink. So, I ask for lean brisket and they shave off 3 large slices. It looks light gray and looks like it has alot of fat. However, I pay and continue to the next station where you must buy your sides. So, I get a bowl of beans and tea. I pay and ask about utensils. The cashier says the knife is in the paper with the meat. I ask about a fork. She says, We don't have forks. We never have. I take a second look and wonder about this. I say, how do you eat it, she says with the knife and your hands. I"m thinking, this is not a third world country and I'm not camping. The no fork thing makes me want to leave. So I sit down and start eating the brisket. It's so fatty I can't even chew it, plus its very bland. The bbq sauce is almost frozen its been in the refrigerator. So, I take the meat back to the dungeon and ask for lean meat. They ask what kind, and I say the leanest you have. So, I go back and try to eat it. I can barely cut it and its a pale gray. Its sooo bad. I get up and leave. This is a terrible place. Do Not Go There!!

This is one of my favorite BBQ places in Texas. When you go in, you can smell the smoke from the smokehouse. You have to order the meat in the smokehouse first then order sides/drinks in the seating area. We got the brisket, prime rib, and sausage. They also gave us a whole loaf of bread without asking. The meats and sausage were a lot and it was so cheap compared to other places. The brisket was extra moist and you can tell it was smoked for a long time. The prime rib was amazing as well. The sausage and sides were okay. Just get the meat and forget about the sides.

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.

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.

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
