We loved the small town of Lockhart and that Smitty's is right in the middle of the town square. It just screams old Texas! It's very casual, but the staff was very helpful since it was our first time. We definitely bought more than we...More

This is the 3rd of the better known barbeque places we've tried in Lockhart. The brisket was ok, some of the ends were rather dry, not much discriminating about the taste. The sauce was runny and nothing to write home about. The jalapeno sausage was...More

Amazing ribs, definitely in the top 3 best Texas BBQ restaurants. Again, order more than you can eat and bring a cooler! Bring cash- they don't accept credit cards

We have tried all the BBQ joints in Lockhart to include Smitty's, Black's, Kreuz, and Chisholm Trail and Smitty's is by far the best and most consistent. The sausage, pork ribs,and smoked turkey were excellent....had amazing flavor. The brisket was good but comparable to Kreuz....More
