Truly epiphanous Texas brisket, sausage and BBQ pilgrimage experience.
No sauce and that's the way I like it! Meat that stands up and defines itself without a cover up!
Former home of Kreuz, which relocated to its current digs in 1999. Smitty's Market just-missed-the Thrillist Top US BBQ List
Great atmosphere. Brisket is only second to Kruez's
Crackers and BBQ blew my mind
Meat sweats. Get the moist brisket.
Come hungry and leave happy. Amazing BBQ. Cash only.
In many states, smitty's would be best. In lockhart, it's in a dead heat with black's for best bbq in town. Brisket pits are breathtaking.
Amazing sausage. Giggity Giggity.
Food not worth the trip. The folks great. Where you get the food right next to the wood burning grill/smoker is cool. The prices great. CASH only, but they have an ATM.
get the ribs
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!
Take a stroll in to the back. Amazing spaces.
Great Brisket ! Sausage greasy (ask for dry) bring cash!!!
This is always good eats here!
Always go in through the back door. If you don't then they will know you are an out of towner.
My brisket was dry, and lacked taste, rather disappointed, but have heard this has been an issue last year or so here. Was expecting much better, sadly this was well below what I got at Kreuz.
Awesome! Still have memories! Best ribs ! Great brisket ! Hot pit near the checkout line! Old school beans! No credit! Cash only! Avocados and crackers
Get the prime rib and pork ribs. Don't bother with sides. Cash only!
Good bbq and the best beans
Bring cash - plastic is not accepted. There is ATM I side for a fee..
Texas Monthly left them out of the top 50 for a reason. Huge step down compared to Black's/Kreuz.
Amazing. Get ribs, brisket (both fat and lean), a pork chop and the prime rib if it's there. Prime rib on wknds only, but they sell out fast.
If you want to use a fork, bring your own.
Right in the middle of Texas's barbeque capital, Smitty's may be the best barbeque in the state. This place is cash only, but they have an ATM.
Excellent pork ribs, and the charred parts of the beef ribs are excellent 5/5. Brisket a bit tough and stringy. 4.25/5
IF you come first timers.. bring cash.. they don't except plastic .. on my cash and checks.. ATM machine hit me up for 2 bucks!
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.
Pork ribs are a must.
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!
Beat BBQ in the world. Try a sampling of everything.
The ribs were the best - don't forget to ask for the sauce, not that the food needs it ...
Try the prime rib. It had plenty of flavor and a nice thick crust ogre seasoning !
BEST BBQ in Lockhart!
Best BBQ on the planet
Absolute worst BBQ I've ever eaten. And you have to pay extra for onions & pickles?! Go to Black's instead, trust me.
Brisket was really dry, go to black's instead. Hot sausage was good.
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.
Best around. Period
Best BBQ in the State of Texas~
At Smitty’s 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.
Try the Brisket, Ribs, Pork Shoulder & Sausage - Try the Brisket- Classic Texas all the way!
I have never had a piece of pork cooked more perfectl. Great treatment and conversation with the pit boss. This place is the real deal. Sorry if a few of you can't diggit. Go back to California.
Bring some extra home.
