Nice place with beautiful view, good food with large quantity. The local home made bread is very good too, my favorite is the white one

Met some friends here for lunch and some local barbecue. Very nice setting adjacent to the river and restaurant seating which is unusual for a traditional BBQ place. Home made bread is excellent, brisket, ribs and turkey were OK, can't compare to more popular Austin area competition.

Fun place, large and can be busy, but still able to be seated rather quickly. Food is very good, not great but still worth the visit. Take the kids and show them the turtles, fish and ducks.

Make a reservation for this popular spot located on the Riverwalk. We enjoyed sitting outside enjoying the bustle along the river. Great service and delicious food with plentiful portions.

Brought a group of 16 for a meal after golf. Decided on one of the family meal all you can eat menu choices. Our hungry golfers made the most of that deal. Food was very good and staff was very attentive. They seemed to be used to large groups. Baby back ribs were great.

The BBQ pork ribs are as good as I've had in a long time, and the cost seemed fair too. There is plenty to eat and choose from.

I ate lunch here while in town at my Company's headquarters. Food is ok, I got the brisket since everyone was raving about it, but seemed dry. The sides were not much better. Since it was a company provided lunch I rated it average.

My wife lived in Austin for a few years and always judged BBQ by her experiences at County Line. I lived near Kansas City for many years, and believe Jack Stack BBQ is the best on the planet. The BBQ tension in our home is extreme. (not really!!) We recently visited County Line with the intent of finally settling the... More

I finally got to have authentic Texas barbecue at the recommendation of a friend. County Line is only for those who are not faint of heart. The portions are "ginormous"! Between the entrees and sides you have to either have a big appetite or plan on taking home a doggy bag for another one or two meals. Great big baked... More
