Real Texas Barbeque served up in a relaxed Texas Hill-Country setting. Ample space to seat groups of all sizes. Huge selections of local craft beers and spirits. It's so close to downtown Austin but it feels so far away!

We held the rehearsal dinner for our daughter's wedding at a house on Lake Travis and had the food catered from County Line BBQ. The food and service was fantastic. We feed about 60 people and got a lot of compliments. We recommend County Line.
