The mark of a good place to eat in a small town is where finding out where the locals eat. Chisholm Trail BBQ is the answer in Lockhart. There are other BBQ restaurants in town, all within about 2 minutes of each other, but Chisholm Trail has a good variety of sides along with an unbelievable pricing structure. Purchasing meat...

The " sides" are amazing and at no charge make a good meal great. Potato Salad, Deviled Eggs, Cucumber and Tomato Salad are among the dozen choices. Of course, the brisket, chicken, and sausage were utterly delicious.

I visited the four "big" BBQ places in Lockhart and I thought they were all very good but this one had the best prices.

The other 3 BBQ joints are great reasons why people visit Lockhart... Chisholm Trail is why they LIVE there.

Went to Chisholm Trail on the advice of a friend. After Smitty's, Black's and Kreuz's how bad could it be? Weeeellllllll, let me tell you. We were there at 11:30 on a Saturday. Most of the sides were not on the hot line, there was generalized chaos behind the line and no one seemed to have a handle on the... More

The third installment of my BBQ quest. This was more of a cafeteria style, nothing wrong with that. The sides were average, as they were with all three of the places I ate. (Potato salad, cole slaw, beans were standards) Had ribs and brisket. The sauce served was vinegar based and not much of it. Wrapped in paper like the... More

Having just moved back to our home state of Texas my family and I wanted some good Texas BBQ and we were not disappointed. Chisolm has excellent Brisket, great sides and very reasonable prices but for me the highlight is the sausage. They have absolutely the best sausage i have ever eaten. Great job!

This is where the locals eat. We eat here more often than all of the other bbq joints in Lockhart combined. It's cafeteria line style barbeque and it's tasty. On top of the tons and tons of side dishes they have world famous barbeque meats at local Lockhart prices seven days a week. During the week they add the fried... More

After doing some research, we decided on Chisholm Trail for supper. Several of the other BBQ restaurants in the area were not open on Sunday. The sides were tasty! The meat was tender and flavorful! There was a lot of room for big families. The decor and furniture were old, but the food made up for that! Great value, too!!!
