I can get it right in my neighborhood! This is the much anticipated openeing of the Austin collaboration of the Schmidt family who own both Smitty's and Kreuz bbq in Lockhart. I didn't think it could be much worse but I was wrong. Bland tough beef, flavorless ribs, good sausage (they have made their own beef sausage for generations and it's really good).
Kind of killed the mood for us when right behind the cash register (where you order your food) in their food prep area a lady was filling steam trays with plastic bags of pre-cooked "Sysco steam table Mac n cheese" as clearly written on the boxes. I prefer a little mystery in my commercial foods but alas, none to be had today. Just steam tables full of nuclear bagged Mac n cheese to go along with my terrible bbq.
Save your money. This place is clearly a cash grab from a still famous but once good bbq icon. Sad. 2 thumbs down.
