Chisholm Trail Bar-B-Que Restaurant Review

: Let the barbecue wars begin! In tiny Lockhart, Texas (30 minutes south of Austin), four of the top barbecue shacks in the state sit within five minutes from each other. Chisholm Trail is one of the newer ones that rolled into town in the ’70s. The owners admit that the stunt “was like putting a ballpark across from Yankee Stadium.” Yet the move paid off, as the lines certainly indicate. It’s distinctive for its bounteous cafeteria-like setting with a special assortment of side dishes like fried okra, homegrown squash, green beans and a salad bar. But the barbecue brisket, fajitas, pork chops, smoked turkeys, and the restaurant’s own recipe sausage are what make this spot hot. Fried catfish on Monday, Wednesday and Friday creates a splash with locals, but the throngs of Austinites and out-of-staters are here for the red meat and pork.
