Blacks followed by Smitty’s.

That said, stop by Taylor, Texas and eat at Louie Mueller’s BBQ. Much better than anything in Lockhart.

My family and I ate at Kruez once, very disappointed. Most people say Blacks is the best.

Your guidance is needed. Thanks

my order of preference is:
Kreuz
Blacks
Smitty's
...
Chisolm

my basis, my wife and I stopped there on our way home from Rockport a few years back and picked up 1 lb moist brisket and 1 lb of sausage from all 4 ... took it home to do a side by side comparison. Many years ago my dad and I would stop in Kreuz (before there was a Smittys, interesting history behind those two) or Blacks every time we were passing thru and it was pretty close between those two on brisket depending on the day. We'd get a couple lbs of brisket and a loaf of bread, all that was needed.

Smitty's was my favorite there, the fact you can get a fresh avocado with the bbq is nice.
Kruez was my second favorite there.

We didn't do the others.

Also side note, Smitty's is open on Sunday, so if you plan to stay overnight you can hold Smitty's off until then. Don't be shocked after eating at those 4 places within 24 hours you might not want to touch bbq for a few weeks.

What’s the verdict on Chisholm Trail? I’ve never been there, one of the sons has San Marcos BBQ. Its around the corner from my house, and is usually very good.

Kruez is my favorite. Smitty's and Blacks = same family that split so not much difference in que but the sauces are different.

Smittys and Kreuz are brother and sister. We prefer Smittys and the ol' time location.

Check out Luling City Market for some of the best pork ribs you'll get anywhere.

Kreutz for the sausage and pork chop.
Smitty's for the pork chop and pork ribs.
Blacks for the brisket and beef ribs.
Drive 15 minutes South and have all the above with the best sauce in the State at Luling City Market.

Definitely the beef rib at Black's and the sausage. The brisket was too heavily salted for me.

Funny how all of Lockhart and Luling has that rather delicious coarse grain, small links.

From memory, I went to Kreuzs back in the day with an asst athletic director from Harvard and a sports agent from Boston. We were standing there by the fire ready to order when I realized the eastern folks were having a real hard time with the menu board. I told them to order like me. When it was my turn, I said, "One hot, two slices of a clod, a chop and crackers." Then I asked them, do you guys like good potato salad, cole slaw and beans? They replied, "Yes we do". I came back with, "They don't have none of that here". When we sat down, they started looking for the barbecue sauce. When it was all said and done, they couldn't have stuffed anything else in their mouths.

So we went to Blacks, the so called original Blacks BBQ. Good brisket, turkey and sides. Sausage? Meh not bueno. Had a strange raw like interior I/we did not like. Is it a deal breaker? No, we loved the rest of the other food. Thanks guys

Next time ask for “dry” sausage. It has the grease cooked out, more well done. If you were in Lockhart, that is the original Blacks. Theres now a location in Austin, San Marcos and New Braunfels.

How do the other compare to the "original"? Passed right by the one in San Marcos but went on in to Lockhart and thanks for the heads up on the dry sausage.

Haven’t been to the San Marcos location since it opened a few years ago. Went twice, they hadn’t mastered the pit yet. But I did like the building setup and full bar. Went to the original a few weeks ago, hadn’t been there for 25 years. It was good.

Went to Smittys year ago. After overpaying for their brisket they had the audacity to charge me as much as a whole onion costs for a few slices of onion.! Swore to never set foot in there again.
