Great Texas BBQ

Coming from California, they will quickly tell you that you've never had real BBQ before. Not at this restaurant, but in general when visiting Texas. This place was recommended by several locals, a police officer, and hotel staff. Im so glad we came here. The food was amazing and the beer selection... read more

Lockhart takes brisket to a new experience. So much is written about Austin and the Hill country barbecue experience being the best in Texas. However, I would put this place with the best of them. As with any good barbecue place, the first thing that hits you in the sweet fragrance of the oak wood...enough smoking has gone on here... More

I have to say, I really love BBQ and this place is awesome. I showed up on a Thursday about 2 months ago and they have burnt ends on those days and it has to be the tastiest burnt ends I have ever had. Super good, super relaxed BBQ place.

Had lunch with a business associate here. The atmosphere was unpretentious and the food was great! We got some beef brisket, ribs, and jalapeno sausages. It comes wrapped in craft paper which becomes your plate. everything was great, but the standout for me was the beef brisket. it saw smoky and tender - just perfect! The sausage wasn't a slouch...

All that and more. Great Texas BBQ the way you order it. Fine Brisket, Sausage, & Ribs. Try the Deviled Eggs & Mac and Cheese sides. Great service.

Visited Lockhart on a Monday night with some co workers I ordered the beef shoulder, I love tender juicy meet and that is what this cut is supposed to deliver The 1/2 pound serving was too small so I went with the full pound, I also ordered potato salad and a drink for a total around $26 The meat flavor...

Went as a group of 4 based on recommendation of locals. Had a sample of a variety of barbecue and it was good. Very crowded by 6:30pm on a Thursday night. Two piece country music band that was excellent. I would go back next time I am in Dallas!

Excellent BBQ the way it's supposed to be. This is no sit down and order, you have to get in a line and place your order at counter. We had the baby back ribs that melted in your mouth along with jalapeño sausage and smoked rib eye. Finger licking good and so satisfying. There is no glam and glitz just... More

This place is the best. Very casual, counter service. You order your selection of meats by weight and sides come in large or small styrofoam cups. The BBQ meat is wrapped in paper and served on a tray, which you carry back to your table. Nothing fancy, and it feels like you're eating from a communal trough on top of... More

Was in Dallas for a business trip and this place was recommended by the concierge. 8 of us went to the restaurant and all of us were amazed by the awesome food and the "bang for your buck". I had the beef brisket and it was by far the best brisket I have ever tasted! "Melt in your mouth" brisket.... More
