What a Texas BBQ Joint is Supposed to be!

Deliciously smoky, moist sausage with a pleasant to the teeth texture, lean, smoky brisket (wife likes the dry end), at a reasonable plate lunch price. Sides are serve youself, and they are VERY nice - espcially the crispy on the outside, tender on the inside fried okra. Hash brown potatoes were... read more

I have eaten at Chisholm Trail on several occasions in the past. This is where we normally go when we visit our daughter but they have recently changed ownership and the quality of their food has deteriorated. The brisket is still ok but their sausage is no longer the same, too greasy and tough. Also the sides no longer taste... More

Great BBQ at a very reasonable price. Pick what you want, meat by the pound. I'm fond of brisket. Potatoes are very good.

Visited while in town for our family reunion. My cousin who is a native of the area, took us to 3 of the best BBQ spots and this was our 1st stop. First or all the atmosphere is very rustic. Don't expect anything more. You get your chow, set down and eat and don't try to be cute about it... More

Wish I would have read some of the other write-ups before I stopped. Yes the meat options were very good. Great pricing to go along with it. But the sides were underwhelming and wish I would have made my own.

Ate lunch here and the prices were decent. If you have tried any of the big name BBQ's in town then this one is just soso. I've had BBQ just as good as this most anywhere,

While I was in Lockhart, I was talking with one of the locals, crying about how expensive the place down the road was that sold those Flintstone sized beef ribs. I was advised to go to Chisholm Trail BBQ where one could get more bang for the buck. I took that person's advise and was at Chisolm Trail in a... More

My husband, a friend and I had dinner at Chisholm Trail BBQ on a Sunday evening. We waited about 5 minutes in line to order our dinner. All 3 of us ordered a two meat with 3 sides dinner. The dinners were $7.50 each. My husband added pork ribs for an additional $3. You serve yourself the veggies, which are... More

This is a cafeteria style diner, which didn't seem particularly clean. The staff was friendly and explained how it works, you can order by the pound on butcher paper or get a platter with 3 sides. I had the brisket and my wife had chicken, both were quite good. The sides were mixed, I thought the coleslaw was good, my... More

We were trying to get to Black's, but misjudged the GBS and ended up here. We were shocked by how horrible the food was until we realized we were not where TA had chosen as #1. The coleslaw was not well seasoned, the greens beans tasted like straight out of a can just like the baked beans. The service people... More
