Holy Smokes!

Call in or be prepared to stand in a really long line. Meat is sold by the pound or container, wrapped up in white paper and you're on your way! We tried the brisket, the sausage (my favorite), chicken and pork. You get white bread slices to go with your meat choice and you can purchase... read more

This is a great BBQ place. It's highly rated by pretty much everybody and that's for good reason. The seating area is comfortable and there's a bar too. Like any good bbq place, they've got all the pickles and little fixings.

Get in the line, grab the salad, ask for the meat (that is been cooking for hours in a special owen), weight the meat, pay and get a seat. Open the package, grab the meat and taste it!

The sign says, "No forks or BBQ sauce needed." If you are eating ribs with a fork, then I don't trust you as well as well seasoned and cooked bbq stands on its own, 'no bbq sauce needed.' I attest to the sign. I stopped by before going to an event. When I arrived a sign at the entrance said,... More

Yep! (That's all I need to say) They WILL run out of food so don't wait too long to go in and eat. While we were there people were being turned away because they had sold out of food. I loved the food and the dining experience. You order your food and they give it to you on butcher paper.... More

This is a Man's BBQ place. They serve the food by what you want. Your want three ribs and a 1/2 pound of brisket , no problem. They have cold beer to wash it all down with. Is located in an Arts District not too far from downtown.

Would go again and again!!! Everything was awesome! My only disappointment was that they ran out of ribs. Because everything was so delicious, I'm betting they were spot on. Brisket, chicken, and chops.... Amazing!

Trip advisor spot on again. This place is the real deal. Down to earth unpretentious. The bar tender was sooo nice, she explained all the different types of tap beers and how the place works. Kudos to her. Be prepared to wait a little to place your order. You stand in line then place the order they slice and dice... More

A unique experience. Busy diner like atmosphere. No table service, you order everything yourself at counters, then bring it back to your table in paper and styrofoam containers. No plates and eat with plastic cutlery. You order meat by weight, so big portions. We went on a Saturday night, there seemed to be a mixed crowd, families, groups of guys,... More

Outstanding BBQ at Lockhart Smokehouse! What a unique place. You order your food and they chop it up, package it right in front of you in massive sheets of white butcher paper. You carry it to the table and dive in! Loved the smoked chicken, ribs, unbelievable beef brisket! The sides were also very yummy. What an experience. And the... More
