Railroad Bar-B-Cue

In: Eating

17 Aug 2015

(map) Railroad’s latest location is in Drippin’. But the family isn’t new to the barbecue biz. They’ve been mesquite-smoking meats for 30 years, and it shows. Their beef brisket is some of the most tender and

(map) Everyone knows about stopping at Cooper’s Bar-B-Que when driving through Llano. But where do the locals (Llanoans? Llanites?) like to get their ‘cue? Right across the street, where Inman’s has been “smoking the good stuff” for over forty years. They’re famous for

Salt Lick Cellars

(map) Whaaat? This legendary barbecue joint has its own wine label?! Indeed they do, and just like the ‘cue, the wine is pretty dang good. The Salt Lick has been growing grapes and selling them to neighboring wineries for years. A few years ago, they opened a tasting room (see our review of it here) serving […]

(map) At long last, the ‘cue joint that has had us salivating with anticipation opens its doors. Schmidt has family ties to Lockhart legends Kreuz Market and Smitty’s, even ceremoniously lighting its pit with burning coals from those two giants. The Bee Cave location promises to build on the family’s reputation with its own versions of […]

(map) Yes, it is finally happening! Opening day is Monday, October 28, for Schmidt Family Barbecue. Schmidt has connections to Lockhart legends Kreuz Market and Smitty’s, so we are salivating at the prospects. Schmidt Family Barbecue website

(map) Man Up Texas BBQ is an awesome blog covering all things Q in the state of Texas. They just released the results of their 2012 Reader’s Choice Awards contest. Out of entries from Austin, Lockhart, Taylor and even Houston, the juicy, smoky, pork ribs at Opie’s in Spicewood tied for first place. The real […]

Rocky Creek BBQ

8 Oct 2012

(map) It’s just a tiny, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it barbecue stand. It’s only open four days a week. But drive by Rocky Creek on one of those four days, and there’ll be a car waiting in the drive-through every time. They’ve been open eight years, and in that time have gotten a rep for

Opie’s BBQ

29 Aug 2012

(map) Sure, they have creative side dishes like craisin-almond coleslaw and tater-tot casserole, as well as desserts like hot peach cobbler. But real BBQ fans know what it’s all about, and Opie’s definitely delivers on the smoky goodness from the minute you step out of the car. You eat your meal on waxed butcher paper, […]

(map) So far, they’re right: It is all good! These guys opened a few weeks ago in the former RO’s Outpost on 71, and the newly remodeled space is barely recognizable. They don’t mess around when it comes to barbecue, either, hitting all the major touchstones. Smoky beef brisket is available moist or lean (go […]
