Landmark serving sausage & BBQ without sauce or forks in a sprawling, cafeterialike setting.- Google
"We were 2 guys, split 1lb fatty brisket and each had a cheese sausage."
"I might have to try the pork chop and beef ribs next time if I go back."

Customer service is terrible. Turkey looks like ham and is dry. They have no plates, forks or bbq sauce. Their "sweet" tea taste sour.The sausage is well I am not sure it doesn't taste like sausage. The beans and macaroni cheese have a odd taste. The potatoe salad is just country potatoes. The brisket is pretty good, that is it. This place is terrible period.

I agree with rest of reviews. Good brisket. OK sausage. But employees have don't give a crap attitude and no forks makes it messy. And no sause, I mean really meat is very moist, but the sause can make up for a bad day. I won't be back with other better choices nearby

I just did the $200 hamburger flight over from Houston in a small aircraft to eat for the second time at Kreuz in Lockhart,TX, and that stuff is delicious!!! It was a slow afternoon , about 4pm and the main dining room is air conditioned with clean tables and chairs. I have read comments about staff, but nobody was rude or slow to ring me up. It would be nice to have a good ole Southern howdy, but I came for the brisket and sausage, not for Southern charm, I have plenty of that ,and maybe, I can rub it off on somebody else along the way!

The staff are rude and the atmosphere is belligerent (just read the signs) not to mention no air conditioning. While the sausage and brisket can be good, it isn't consistently good. You'd think this place would be packed because it is a convenient stop when passing through town, then you encounter the people behind the counter and realize the problem. My suggestion is to go Smitty's Market down the street.

Great place for BBQ! Brisket is ultra moist, and sausage is super awesome and tasty. One star went away for the bizarre policies. No forks seems okay for BBQ, but when you realize you get a spoon and a knife for things that need forks, like green beans, potato salad, and pickles in a bag, you start to realize the bizarre nature of the policy. Meat honestly doesn't need bbq sauce cause its so tasty, but you can't have any anyway. If those are a deal breaker, go to one of the other delicious places in Lockhart... the fork thing might be for me.

I managed 8 classic Central Texas joints in 4 days: Franklin, Louie Mueller, Cranky Franks, Smittys, Blacks, Kreuz, City Market, and Harmons. Kruez landed at 6th place on the list overall. The brisket was pretty dry and needed salt in the worse way. Both original and jalapeno/cheese sausages were okay, but lacked some serious punch that you'd expect. The pork ribs were also dry, with a decent quality rub. The staff gives the overall impression that they could care less and that somehow the reputation and history will save the day. It didn't. 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

Really good BBQ. Really good selection of sides (more than any place I know). Great atmosphere, plenty of room, not crowded like other places close by.

Spectacular barbecue. No pretense; just Texas barbecue at its absolute best. Roy, the pitmaster, is as humble as hospitable as they come. Road trip worthy.
