If you are talking about the Salt Lick then I agree. It was terrible compared to many of the other places around here.

I guess different people have different tastes. I LOVE the Salt Lick but think Rudy's is overrated. Yet other people can't stop heaping on the superlatives about Rudy's.

Salt Lick is mediocre
Rudy's is ok

The BEST brisket in central Texas can be found at Franklin BBQ.

Google it up.

Nope. The best brisket in central Texas can be found at either the City Market in Luling or at a little BBQ shack in Bartlett where you have to go on Saturday or Sunday morning, early, to make sure you get some.

Franklin's was disappointing when we went - I have no idea what all the fuss is about (except maybe the awesome coffee BBQ sauce). Rudy's is - well, I hate to say it - reliable BBQ. Meaning it'll be pretty much the same no matter which Rudy's you go to, and it'll be perfectly acceptable BBQ, but it's not outstanding by any means (and, yes, I order the extra juicy part - I always order my BBQ with "flavor").

Haven't been to the Salt Lick in a while, but when I went, it was quite tasty. Not Coopers or City Market, but up there.

I love Rudy's. It makes my knees week. One of these days I am going to drive out to Lockhart and see if their barbecue reputation is warranted.

I don't think Lockhart's reputation is warranted, frankly. (Used to eat at the various places there often when I was boarding my horses just ten minutes away.) If I'm heading that way, I'll just keep right on driving on down to Luling.

A coworker that lives in Lockhart sings the praises of Chisohlm Trail followed by Blacks. Have you eaten at either of those places?

I've eaten at both of them. Chisholm Trail's sides are good, their BBQ, sorry, not even in the top 15 in Central Texas. Black's is probably the best of the places in Lockhart, especially since the "family feud" that added an unpleasant spice to the other two of the big three there.

I'm right there with you TexashorseLady.

I work in Luling and Lockhart frequently, and have been hitting up all the babeque places I can.

I just tried Blacks the other day, and was pleasantly surprised. It maybe my go to place in Lockhart.
Kruetz was just ok, and doesn't have sauce. Smitty's isn't anything to write home about, but it's fairly good.

Now City Market in Luling is by far the best. I have trouble eating at other places because of this place. If you are lucky enough to get the edges that have been burned, you are in for a treat. The sausage is the best of them all, and the sauce is my favorite too. I've been there probably about 20 times, and only twice was the meat dried and not up to standards.
