  • At Smittys they serve up real Texas barbeque: beef that gets a dry rub before getting roasted over an open wood fire pit for 4-6 hours.
  • May be the best BBQ in the state - certainly toward the top of the list.
  • This place is BYOF (Bring Your Own Fork). They expect you to eat the meat with your hands. So wash up. They do have plastic spoons & knives.
  • No credit cards, no plates, no forks, no sauce - no problem. Best ribs ever!
  • Get one pork chop for your group. it's a half pound of the best pig ever.
  • Don't be fooled by the looks of the place. The brisket here is the best I've ever had! Definitely worth a stop if you're nearby!
  • If you're going to make a BBQ pilgrimage, forget the Salt Lick and head out to Lockhart for Smitty's, Kreuz's and/or Black's.
  • OMG. The best brisket and sausage ever! BBQ sauce by request only, but you won't need it. No plates. Meat served on butcher paper and napkins pulled from a hanging bathroom paper towel dispenser.
  • You can't go wrong with the pork ribs.
  • The sausage is certainly dripping with oil, if you like that kind of thing.
  • Brisket, ribs and hot rings Ftw
  • The smokiness of the brisket here is delicious but can take some getting used to. It is also a specialized meat market where you can also purchase your own BBQ goods.
  • get the ribs
  • Great Brisket ! Sausage greasy (ask for dry) bring cash!!!
  • If you want to use a fork, bring your own.
  • Fyi: cold ring = uncooked sausage (good for cook@home). Shoulder is lean brisket (less fat) Brisket is fatty. Either, or, you cant go wrong!
  • Great lunch with @KyleFlaherty and @JimStorer. Still waiting on @JeffCutler and @AaronStrout. #food #BBQ
  • This is simply some of the best BBQ in the nation! BBQ done right... Order by the pound straight off the pit... Served on butcher paper... Cash only... No forks... Family style seating... Enough said!
  • Try the prime rib. It had plenty of flavor and a nice thick crust ogre seasoning !
  • If coming with a group of friends, have one person order the food, on drinks and sides an park the rest at a long table.
