Sometimes you just crave something that’s nice, big, thick, juicy, smoky, and satisfying. And when you do, the nice folks at Lockhart Smoke House in Bishop Arts have just the thing – meat, and lots of it. This quaint neighborhood shop isn’t pretentious or fancy. When you walk in you’ll order at the butcher counter in the back, pay for your food and take it to your table. There are no forks, there is no sauce, their ribs are dry rubbed, smoked, served on butcher paper and sold by the 1/2 pound.  

Lockhart is veritable sausagefest. No really, they proudly sell authentic German Kreuz sausages which originate back to Charles Kreuz in the 1900′s, and the famous Kreuz Market that’s still open today in Lockhart, Texas, (where this BBQ joint gets it’s name). They use the same time-honored traditions people have enjoyed for more than 100 years. The ownership has been passed down through the generations and changed hands a couple times over the years, but not much else has changed.

This market-style eatery still sells quality smoked meats, and good old fashioned sides like deviled eggs, baked beans, mac-n-cheese, coleslaw, potato salad and so much more. Looks pretty tempting, no?
