“Great Beef Ribs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

The County Line has the absolute best beef ribs, and "on the lake" beats "on the hill" for my top choice based on atmosphere. The rest of the Q is very good, but the ribs are great.

“Favorite County Line is the one on Lake Austin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Neat deck off the back side with live music, and you can feed the turtles.... beautiful, peaceful, and awesome food. Be sure to order their bread appetizer, Although and maybe because I am not a huge BBQ coniseuer this is my favorite BBQ place in Texas.

“Good Texas Barbeque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

The County Line is a chain, yet each one is different so you never feel as if you are eating in one. The ribs are my favorite. There is often a wait but that isn't bad because you can sit on the patio and enjoy nature.

“OK BBQ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

I ate here the other week, had the pulled port sandwich, which was good. This place can (and does) get very crowded for lunch and dinner, particularly on the weekend. Service is hit or miss (usually miss in my experience).
