Lockhart Texas BBQ is Famous, even for Texas BBQ
(Here is the most recent post about real estate in Lockhart)
Eating BBQ in Texas is like breathing: you just gotta do it, and do it a lot.
We wrote about the town of Lockhart Texas a few weeks ago but we ran out of time for shooting the town (meaning: we ran out of sunlight and the kids ran out of patience) so we decided to go back and finish the job.
Ok, here is the real story: I needed more Black’s BBQ, and I don’t mean needed as in lowercase. I mean NEEDED Blacks BBQ as in NOW.
If you know me, you know that means: load up the kids ’cause we’re going on a road trip.
This time, we only took a few photos of the jail in Lockhart on the way in to town, and spent the rest of the evening hanging around Black’s at the edge of downtown. It was a Saturday evening and the crowd surged in and out like a well-choreographed dance.
The barbecue and sides line moved quickly and everyone seemed to know exactly what they wanted.
We waved a few groups around us because we wanted it all, since we’d only managed to try a third of it on the first round. A few regulars realized we were new at this and pointed out their favorites on the line. That is one of the things we LOVE about Texas – good old fashioned hospitality and what you’d expect from a BBQ joint that has been in the same family since 1932.
My youngest son kept trying to grab the jello, so we sent him and our older son into the dining room to grab a table.
We’d regale you with the tale of what we ate, but that would be too easy. You need to go and try if for yourself. The brisket is melty meat and heaven and the turkey is the juiciest we’ve ever had, anywhere.Black’s Barbecue
