Ok, we wanted to eat breakfast out and thought, why not? The meal was a buffet, with the only egg option being scrambled. We should have left, but oh, well, you have to try sometimes. The biscuits seemed to be from yesterday. I had the hispanic tinged breakfast, which included beans and tortillas. The tortilla was ok, the beans were... More

Great place to sit down and have some good BBQ with all the sides and dessert you can eat at a very reasonable price. The menu includes items for vegans and those who want something other than meat. This place has that down home goodness.

Chisholm Trail doesn't get the same recognition as the other "Big 3", but it's definitely a better value. They also have more options if BBQ isn't what you're in the mood for. Comparing is subjective and their smoked ensemble of meats would hold up against most. The crowd is local and the staff is friendly.

I had not eaten at Chisholm Trail for a while. The last time, several months ago, that I ate I was disappointed. But I decided to try them again and this time I was impressed with the improvement of the quality of their food. Their barbecue chicken was tender and moist and their sausage and beef was also tasty. Their... More

The bbq was ok but not as good as a lot of others around the state and particularly not as good as Blacks there in Lockhart. Prices were fair and the tea was great,If I am ever in... More

We went to Chisholm Trail BBQ, and Got the Chopped Beef Sandwich which were Very Good and had pickles, and onions on the Sandwiches. We were only getting a snack, so I would like to go back and have a meal.

Nice place with good barbeque. The food is served cafeteria style its all good. I got the two meat plate which comes with three sides. Salads come first then other things such as okra, corn, potatoes etc . Its hard to decide. The atmosphere is homey. The afternoon crowd was light. The prices are better than Blacks or Kraus's Try...

The prices here were excellent. However the brisket was a bit dry and tough. Green beans were salty. The pinto beans were great though! The biscuits were good too. I'd go back if I wanted BBQ and was on a tight budget.
