A couple of people were talking about eating real Texas barbecue so we drove over to Lockhart to eat at Blacks. Most of us went for the brisket and sausage, but there was one turkey and one beef rib - all 1lb of it! Amazing selection of sides, and if you really want to go for it you can load... More

On our way to a town down near the coast, in Lockhart around lunchtime, so hey it is famous let's try it! The line was about 15min, the food is over priced, $2 ea side, and if using a cc beware the screen shows a tip % and sort of shames you into tipping, even though it is a cafeteria... More

Blacks BBQ is one of my all time favorites. I live near Dallas, but, anytime we are near Lockhart, we either eat there or get some to go. I usually just do brisket and ribs at BBQ places. But, their sausage is incredible. It's the only place I order sausage and could eat it for dessert...it's that good! It's unique.... More

We had a bad experience here. Came in after 5:00 PM one day ordered some brisket little dry. Sausage very dry and I asked for greasy ones. Chicken was so dry couldn't even eat it. Potato salad was the worse under cooked. I called and complained and asked manager on duty to try potato. He did admit it was under... More

I was raised with Coopers BBQ in Llano and this was a good joint. Nothing fancy, perfect ribs and loved the sauce. Nothing better than freah white bread, sliced pickles, and onions. You can choose from beans, two different cole slaw, potatoes of many choosings... Pecan cobbler was good also. Lets get to the meat. We had Rib pork wonderful... More

The star here is the barbecued meats - ribs, sausages, brisket, and smoked turkey. When you walk in the door you automatically get into a buffet line for the sides, then you order your preferred meat by the pound. It was my first visit so I was a little taken aback by the woman yelling at me from behind the... More

I've eaten a lot of BBQ. I tend to prefer brisket then pork ribs. I was encouraged to try the Flintstone size beef rib. The thing is enormous. I thought it was a novelty, sort of like the smoked turkey leg they sell at the baseball stadiums. I was overwhelmed by just how good the rib was. It has a... More

We were on our way to Corpus Christi from Dallas and decided to get some brisket sandwiches and a pound of baby back ribs. I ordered, and got a pile of separated ribs, and all of them were different size. The rest of the order came later and was packed in the bag. They probably felt we were not coming... More

This is a great place to stop. The food is good and there is a good variety of meats. I was really surprised at how good the turkey was!
