County Line Barbecue serves Texas-style brisket, and it does so in a great setting right on the Riverwalk. The atmosphere is boisterous yet comfortable, and it was a fun place to dine with friends. The biggest drawback is that the prices don't match the quality of the food. The homemade bread is quite good, but I'm not sure it's worth the extra you have to pay for it to come to your table. The margaritas might be excellent as well, but I certainly wasn't going to pay $10 for one. Also, as a non-Texas, I expected my tea to be sweet and my barbecue sauce to not be. The opposite occurs at County Line, but that's a matter of personal preference and not a reflection of the restaurant. Overall, it was a decent experience. There are better barbecue places in San Antonio, and more bang-for-your-buck restaurants along the Riverwalk, but County Line is a solid (if not exceptional) choice for a night's dining.

Visited twice during a recent stay in San Antonio. Sat outside in the sunshine and enjoyed a good mixed combo of ribs and sausage the first visit and baby back ribs the second visit. Food was good but not the best BBQ I had evey had but still was worth a second visit. Service was quick and friendly and the prices are very reasonable for such a touristic location.

Rib dinner was excellent. Hubby had BBQ chicken and brisket but the brisket was a little bit
tough. The Restaurant gets very busy but the staff can handle it. Location is right on the River Walk. There is outside seating available. We took left-overs back to the hotel for breakfast.
A good stop.

This County Line managed to ruin a fond memory of barbecue from County Line on the lake in Austin. The baby back ribs were so dry we had to ask for extra sauce. We tried 4 different sides, the beans were the worst, tasting only of chili powder while the potato salad was good. Slaw and garlic mashers were average. Our server was very efficient, though her habit of touching was not to our liking. We eat barbecue often and this is not a place we would return to.
