While vacationing in Texas, wanted to sample some other BBQ restaurants other than Rudy's....Kept hearing how the BBQ in Lockhart was the best, So, we stopped at the Chisholm Trail BBQ for lunch...got to be honest and say that I was a little disappointed. It was nice that they offered different side dishes to "enhance" the meal experience...and the prices... More

Lockhart is a tough place to compete if you are selling BBQ. In my opinion chislom does not unseat the top three. I had the sliced beef and it was ok. The sandwiches are a good value. Be aware the super sandwich has tomatoes, lettuce and mayo with the sauce which is not usually expected.

The BBQ here is good, but does not meet the standards set by Black's BBQ restaurant and others in Lockhart..

Here in the BBQ Capitol of the world, this is the winner. Everything is slightly better than Kruez, Blacks and Smitty's. I think it is the discipline of the pit masters and attention to detail. The brisket and spare ribs are competition quality. Sausage is excellent too. It is nice to be able to get a fork to eat your... More

We eat here whenever in the area. Always go through the drive-thru. Everything from a sandwich to food for a CROWD. I can't say enough about their tasty southern style home cooked food. As others have said it is very budget friendly. Frankly they have to be making money based on volume. We love it. Also, often get food to... More

If you want sides, this is place to come. Any of the three will give you wonderful BBQ. Always take some home or don't tell you were anywhere close to Lockhart. Beats Corky's in Memphis hands down, and I have never tasted a Carolina BBQ that could compete. They have opened up a Lockhart BBQ in Dallas & Plano, but... More

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.
