The Tiny Town In Texas That’s The Next Barbecue Capital Of The World
Barbecue is kind of our signature thing here across the whole state of Texas, but one town rises above all the rest. Lockhart, a quaint little hill country community, has arguably the highest concentration of good barbecue joints in the state and possibly the country. These four restaurants have been around for nearly a century or even longer, slow-smoke and season their meat to absolute perfection, and will leave you absolutely stuffed because you just won’t be able to stop eating.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Have you been to any of these restaurants in Lockhart? Which one is your favorite?
