Definitive Hill Country barbecue meat on butcher paper in a big barn of a place perfumed with wood smoke. The brisket is what it's all about, but there are also fans who drive for hours for the house-made sausages, including the impossibly juicy "regular" and the more complicated (but equally delicious) jalapeño cheese links. Side dishes include German potato salad and sauerkraut alongside the usual coleslaw and beans, a reference to Kreuz's Teutonic origins.  — Yasmin Fahr



  • One of the true Texas BBQ meccas, the ribs and sausage are as good as you're ever going to have.
  • Awesome green beans. Ham's good. Get there early!!! They were out of ribs & potato salad & cole slaw by 7pm on Friday night. No forks. No sauce. Fyi.
  • Best BBQ in the Austin Area.
  • Thrillist Top BBQ List: Fatty, tender brisket and spicy, house-ground jalapeno sausage; add a pork chop, too. Don't ask for a fork (they believe meat should be eaten w/hands) and don't ask for sauce
  • PRIME RIB. The real deal.
  • Easily the best of the four in Lochkart. It might seem more commercialized than the others, but the food is off the chain here. Only brisket I've had that's better is Pecan lodge and Luling Market.
  • Best in Lockhart. Get one hot and a pound of lean. Get some cheese strips, some sweet pickles mix, onions and a root beer. You have a meal fit for the gods.
  • Get the Brisket, it's amazing!
  • The pork spare ribs are the best. Ever.
  • I enjoyed the family friendly menu. Try the brisket & the sausage links! I'm always a fan of tea and I highly suggest the freshly brewed here. Awesome meal!
  • Overcrowded, overpriced, & overhyped. Go to Black's instead!
  • Everything is amazing!!
  • Try the BBQ
  • That's texas bbq!
  • Don't let the pursuit of beef products make you overlook the pork ribs - magnificent smoke ring, mouthwateringly tender.
  • Prime rib, pork chops, sausage, brisket. In that order. Add Big Red and call it a day. Just don't ask for forks or sauce.
  • One of the biggest BBQ places in Lockheart, if not all of Texas. The wood piles alone are impressive but the meat is the main draw here. Amazing sausages.
  • This spot was my fave (near Lockhart)... smoker room smells amazing + plenty of seating with A/C + cheddar brat was juicy and simply perfect + brisket and turkey were rubbed on point, but a tad dry!!!
  • Real BBQ, the way Texans used to enjoy it one hundred years ago. Not for the faint of heart, don't expect much in the way of fancy decoration and ambience. Worth the drive to Lockhart.
  • Pork ribs are unbelievable
