This is the best BBQ in the USA. The beef brisket melts in your mouth. Very good smoke flavor and the bark is awesome. The ribs also have the great smoke flavor. Do try the smoked turkey breast as again that just melts in your...More

The food here was amazing! The meat looked amazing. It is a very popular venue.... However... if you are a Veggie or Pescatarian your options will be the sides... a fairly uninspiring Mac and Cheese...a nice potato salad or a Slaw. Everything else has meat...More

If you're a meat lover, then Lockhart's is a must. I had the brisket, baked beans and deviled eggs and all were excellent! Expect a long line around dinner time. (The only downfall is that the place could use a good scrubdown.)

The ribs were absolutely fantastic. The beer selection was good. The mac and cheese was only so-so, but go there for the meat! Service at the bar wasn't super friendly, but I would still go back!
