Black's BBQ was awesome. We waited in line for 30 mins before getting to a buffet-style counters. The mac & cheese was very popular among the children in our group. I ate a ton of cole slaw. & the BBQ brisket & pork ribs were tender & juicy. It was well worth the wait.

I have now been to Black's six times over the last four years or so. Whenever I travel to Texas, I make a point of going to Black's. I have not been disappointed in one thing I have had there and have never heard any complaints from others I have taken there...except maybe that they ate too much! Take me... More

This was my first stop in Lockhart on the BBQ trail. I had the giant beef rib sausage and pecan cobbler. Everything was fantastic might be the best sausage ever and the beef rib was huge and tasty. The pecan cobbler was delicious had to grab a shirt on my way out to remember my great BBQ outing before I... More

Stopped by for lunch based on recommendations from a friend... it was good.. we had brisket and baby back ribs. The brisket was by far the outstanding meat, with the ribs a little oily for my taste. Plenty of sides to choose from which you pick and serve yourself.

Nuff said , the beef ribs are Black biggest menu hit in my book. All the other offerings are very good as well but the dinosaur style ribs are the pinnacle of what beef ribs should look, smell and taste like .

Oh my. That's really all I can say. First, the people: really nice and friendly. Super helpful, and always had a smile. Second the location: easy to find, and downtown Lockhart is kind of interesting. Can imagine parking could get hard, but not horrific. Went early on a weekday, and just walked right on in! Third, the food. Oh yes.... More

Bbq is great if you're not a native Texan... I am so I don't think it's that great. Expensive ribs. I didn't think it was bad, I've just had better... Fun place to visit though

I have only driven thru Lockhart in the past, but this morning a pilot buddy of mine in Katy asked if I wanted to join him for a BBQ lunch. A quick 45 minutes later we were in Lockhart, jumped in the airport BBQ-mobile and made our way across town to Blacks. The smoke in the air and line out... More

My husband and I were in vacation in Texas and Blacks was recommended to us by my husbands client. They were right! My husband is not big on BBQ, but this place was great. We tried the Chicken, Brisket and the garlic sausage. All were good, but the Brisket was fantastic. The only thing we wished is that they had... More

We're from Texas and have always heard that there's good BBQ in Lockhart so we stopped here on the way back home to Dallas from the Alamo Bowl. So glad we did! We tried the brisket, sausage, and turkey. All great. FYI if you don't like fatty brisket, make sure to ask for lean brisket (they serve it both ways).... More
