There’s a certain stereotype that comes to mind when thinking about small towns in Texas – we’re guilty of it too even though we’ve called this great state home our entire lives. We think about elderly couples sitting out on their porch with a class of sweet tea in hand, locals gathering at their favorite restaurant in the town square on Sunday morning to catch up after church, and Southern hospitality that oozes out of every pore of everyone who lives there.
Lockhart, a historic Central Texas town, fits this description perfectly – along with being home to two of the most acclaimed, iconic, and delicious barbecue restaurants in the country. So, if you haven’t taken the time to visit yet, what are you waiting for?
What a perfect example of a lovely Southern town. Have you ever visited Lockhart? Tell us all about your experiences in the comments.
