My wife and I enjoyed our meal. It was good we have had better. I will go there again for dinner. Portions size could be better for the money. But it is good and close to my home.

My girlfriend and I went there for dinner on a Sunday evening. The restaurant seemed pretty cool. It looked like an old converted warehouse. We were promptly seated. We decided to split a 3 meat combo. I ordered the brisket , pulled pork and ribs with potato salad and vinegar based cole slaw. The food arrived after a few minutes.... More

We stopped here for lunch and I had the ribs and my wife had the wings. The ribs tasted great, I like the rub. However they were so tough they were almost inedible. Very little meat, very dry, and a lot of scrappy stuff on them. Their sauces tastes a lot like some other places we've been on the east... More

The meat, the meat, the meat. Vegetarians stay away. Lockhart's is all about the meat. Everything is fresh and well done. Smoked meats, barbecued meats. Sausages, brisket, ribs, pulled pork. It is all good. The deviled eggs are amazing. Sweet potato mash, mac and cheese. you will also like the drink selections. Their drink offerings are also extensive. Grab some... More

We just walked in looking for southern bbq .... and we found it. At the end of our Business trip (we are from Germany) we decided to go for some american bbq. The food was great, we have a variety of bbq meat and we loved it. With some local beer, it was a great day to end our stay... More

My family loves this place. As a non meat eater it is not great for me but they rave about the food. The barbecue choices were plentiful and the servings were of good size

Our family of adults had dinner there on a Saturday night. My son and son in law had been there several times and recommended it. The service was prompt and efficient and the decor was open and informal. I had the Longhorn Brisket Sammy; it was awesome. I wasn't planning on eating the whole thing, but I couldn't stop. They...

There were 4 of us on a Sunday evening. We were not at all disappointed. One of us had the beef tip salad, another the brisket, another the salmon sandwich and I had the bbq chicken sandwich. Sweet potato fries were excellent. Service was good; we ate on the patio. My only complaint: they need to replace the greasy menus.... More
