The Best Bang for Your Buck BBQ in Lockhart

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... read 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

Tried them twice as we visited all the BBQ place in Lockhart. Family Pack is a great deal, brisket was very good, but cleanliness was a concern, and Black's, although more expensive, won our quest.

It's Texas, it's BBQ, and it's delicious. We ate on a Friday night, so it was pretty crowded. We always eat in Lockhart on our way from Austin to Corpus Christi. I will also write a review for Black's, which we ate at on the way home. We were talking with a local gentleman in line and he told us... More

Texas is known for its bbq. So it's a must. But there's tons of options that are easily accessed. If you want the real deal at a good price you HAVE to drive out of your way to get it! Their brisket is ridiculous and the sizes are Texas sized for sure. You can add on a whole chicken, links... More

I once spoke to several of their employees wanting to know why is it that with so many customers stopping by, why the heck they wouldnt take more effort in cleanliness, sanitation or fixing up the place instead of leaving it so nasty?! (Mind you one being a manager)well it doesnt surprise me much, but their response was, "Because they... More

Now this place ain't my top BBQ places to eat,but I will say now that Rudy's ain't got it like this place do. There is an abundance of sides to choose from. My dad had the hashbrowns from that place and he said it reminded him of his sisters cooking so its down to earth home made stuff. Eat here... More
