All I can say is wow. The brisket was amazing it had a great Smokey flavor and was cooked just right. The sausage was great but it is has a sting pepper flavor so if you don’t like pepper skip the sausage. This place is...More

I must have caught them on a bad day, being mid-week. I had a beef rib and brisket. For a $12 rib, there wasn't much meat on that big bone. It was a fatty and very chewy. In a word, unremarkable. The brisket was excessively...More

Another disappointing Lockhart experience. We sampled both ends of the brisket. The fatty portion was moist, and easily passed the pull test, but then the marbling was the most dense that I have ever encountered in a brisket. The lean end was as dry as...More

Kreuz is German for "cross", and the meats this establishment produces can only be described as divine. This BBQ joint, located in Lockhart, is absolutely fantastic!! The smoke room where you order greets you with a heavenly scent. We sampled their brisket, ribs and jalapeño/cheddar...More

Barbeque brisket was delicious and tender, ribs were good too. sides (beans, potatoes, mac and cheese) were fair but nothing special. Meat cutters/servers were not friendly and acted like we were wasting their time. Counter staff in dining area were attentive and friendly.

I'd call. All seats are indoor. You can get your food and eat in the parking lot or a city park.

I used my Visa debit card there -- the one slightly odd thing I remember is that customers pay twice -- once for the meats, back in the smokehouse area, and once for the sides, drinks, etc in the dining area. But obviously... More
