In my eternal quest for the best barbecue in Texas, I found another very good candidate – Black’s BBQ in Lockhart, Texas. The atmosphere was top-notch – just look at the photos on the wall… they show the Lockhart High School football teams from 1921 forward. We are talking leather helmets – way cool.


Black’s claim to fame is being “the oldest major BBQ house in Texas continuously owned by the same family since 1932.” I can’t vouch for that, but I can vouch for the finger-lickin’-good food. I have to say though… I still think City Market in Luling is better.
