This place was recommended to us my 2 law enforcement officers at a shooting range we had visited.
We had a warm welcome by friendly helpful staff, we were showed through to the counter where you pick your side orders, then on to the meat counter, the staff serving were very helpful and polite and loved our English accents!! Our food was absolutely delicious. We all had the baby ribs and brisket, all our plates were emptied. We loved the decor and the whole feel of the place and would highly recommend a visit.

Family owned, awesome barbecue out in the middle of no where! If you feel like taking a ride through the Texas countryside for a meal then this is the place for you. The meats are fantastic, the sides are pretty good. The atmosphere has a "stepping back in time" feel.

Lockhart is known as the Barbecue Capital Of Texas so you won't have a hard time finding a BBQ restaurant there, but you will have a hard time choosing a favorite. My favorite is Black's for several reasons:
-- It was the best beef rib I have ever eaten.
-- Kent Black gave me a tour of the pits.
-- Edgar Black’s Homemade Sausage.
-- Last but not least, the men and women behind the counter and working the pits were warm and engaging from the second we walked in, until we waddled out with full bellies. This kind of hospitality plus amazing BBQ will bring me back every time.

We ate here on a Sunday afternoon, decent line but not crazy, we were inside, got through the line quickly, had ribs, brisket and a pork chop. All the pork was completely dry, ribs we stringy and of extremely poor quality the McRib is a better slab of ribs. The pork chop was just bland, tasted like a plain piece of pork. Sides were bad, beans would of been better from a can, they were rather flavorless, mac and cheese was good, and creamy. Brisket was the only thing that stood out, fatty, juicy and very tasty, BBQ sauce is slightly spicy but in a good way, good selection of hot sauces. There are better choices in town, and down the street in Luling.

I LOVE my Brisket, but these Beef Ribs blew it away!
Meaty, Meaty, Meaty, Super Juicy, Meaty! Smokey, Succulent, and just Awesome!

They also honor Military Discounts.

Definitely worth the trip!
Definitely worth a Return Visit!
