It has been a while since I have taken a road trip. On my way to San Marcos this hot Texas afternoon, I detoured to the city of Lockhart to get some delicious barbecue at Kreuz Market. It wasn’t too busy for a Friday, so I pretty much zipped through the line and ordered some brisket, bread, beans, cheese, and iced tea. I was so hungry for some tasty brisket that I neglected to take a photo until there was just one slice left. Anyways, you get an idea of how good things are here and hopefully one day you will have the opportunity to visit.
It must be the Holidays. The line at Louie Mueller Barbecue was too long – almost out the front door. Lucky for me, the BBQ is so good there. Today’s lunch was moist brisket, turkey, beans, bread, pickles, BBQ sauce, and iced tea. Yummy.
I have been wanting to try this location of Black’s Barbecue for a long time. It is located near the University of Texas campus on Guadalupe and 31st and 1/2 Street. It is a small restaurant and today there was a smoker outside and a short line of people on the inside. The brisket was perfect, just as you would expect from a Black’s site. You line up, order your sides, have them slice and weigh your meat selections, pay for everything, get your drinks, then find a table inside or on the outside patio. I highly recommend it if you find yourself in the area.
The Original Black’s Barbecue in Lockhart may be the best BBQ joint on the planet. My lunch today was simple – pork chop, brisket, black-eyed peas, and iced tea. If you ever find yourself within driving distance of Black’s, please check it out.
“Please form line.” I got lucky today. Zipped right in and ordered my brisket, pork ribs, and beans. The food was awesome, and the line was short. Louie Mueller Barbecue is the best!
My after hiking dinner was at Opie’s Barbecue in Spicewood. I had brisket, pork ribs, spicy corn, butterbeans, pickles, and iced tea. Check out their menu online and prepare yourself for a good meal if you happen to be in the area and decide to stop by.
Welcome to Austin! We need another BBQ Joint. 🙂
The good news is that this version of Black’s Barbecue is very similar to the one in Lockhart. I walked in the door and picked my sides – beans and creamed corn. I then turned the corner and watched as my meats were cut and weighed – moist brisket, turkey breast, and a small jalapeño and cheese sausage. Then pay, grab your drink, and enjoy. You can choose to sit inside or on the patio outside, where I am composing this post at the moment. What a beautiful day in Austin it is.
