Black’s Barbecue: Mon.-Thu. 10am-8pm, Fri. & Sat. 10am-8:30pm, Sun. 10am-8pm, 215 North Main Street, Lockhart, TX 78644
August in Texas, and it was hot, at least 100˚. B and I had no food in the house and we were getting stir crazy staying in the air conditioned house. We made a bold decision to venture out into the heat and in search of, well, what else might a Texan venture out into the August heat for? Yup, barbecue and a cold beer.
We’d been wanting to go to Lockhart for barbecue for awhile, so that’s where we headed. We went to Black’s Barbecue, but it wasn’t an easy decision because Lockhart is full of good barbecue (see Phil’s comment below) that I hope to try soon.
The town was sleepy except for Black’s Barbecue. At Black’s, a line wrapped around the building and people were sitting by strangers at the picnic style tables just for some of that good barbecue. The air was on but barely, and the slow turning ceiling and wall fans did little to help keep the temperature down.
I mention the heat and the crowd as a forewarning, but I also think it’s part of the experience, the barbecue experience and the trying new places experience. I’d definitely recommend a little drive out to Lockhart for some barbecue at Black’s.
