“Best Value for Lockhart BBQ!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

You may find better BBQ in Lockhart, but not at these prices. You can get a meat plant with plenty of side orders to choose all for under $6. If you have a whole family to feed and price is an issue then this is the place to come. Good food at a decent price.

I would recommend that you come early because when they get backed up their line goes at a snail’s pace. I've walked away on a few occasions due to their slow moving line. There are too many other places in town with good food to put up with that.

However, if you do choose to wait you won’t be disappointed. Also, if you plan ahead and order to take out, they have a separate entrance for pick up and I rarely have seen a line.

“Local's place for Lockhart Bar-b-que”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

There are several well known bar-b-que establishments in Lockhart. Unfortunately most have come to depend on the tourist trade and their quality has sufferred and their prices have risen. The place locals go to for quality, quantity, and price is Chisholm Trail Bar-b-que. Service is cafeteria style with numerous choices of vegatables and other sides. Meats include everything imaginable that can be bar-b-qued; beef, pork, ribs (pork and beef), sausage, and chicken. The food is excellent and the prices very, very reasonable. If you want a tourist experice go to the other places. If you want good bar-b-que at a reasonalble family price go to Chisholm Trail.

“Tasty BBQ”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Food was good, self serve type of line. (A bit of a wait, but worth it). Good value too. My kids liked the chopped BBQ sandwich.

“Great Food-Slow Drive Thru”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

The food here is great, and it's the best bang for your buck in Lockhart. The only drawback is the (lengthy) wait in the drive through.

“Great BBQ!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We stumbled on this while staying in the area and showed up pretty darn close to closing time, but the staff was still all smiles and plenty of hot fresh food available. If you have a group of people, get the Family pack! You wont be disappointed.
