    On Friday I will be traveling to Austin, Texas for the weekend. Tuesday will be Franklin's for lunch before we head back.

    On Friday, I am planning to go a little further and have dinner at one of the places in Lockhart. 

    My choices are:

    Kreuz Market

    Smitty's Market

    or Black's Barbecue

    I hope we will be in Lockhart by about 5:00 or 5:30 at the latest. What are the chances that we will still be able to get some good barbecue, specifically brisket?

    It looks like Black's is open the latest, until 8:30pm and Kreuz until 8:00pm, and Smitty's closes at 6:00pm on Fridays. 

    Those of you from the area or who have been there....What's the situation on a Friday evening?

    Smittys is my fav. in Lockhart.  The others are good...but I like Smittys better.  Also, bring CASH!  No plastic taken at some of those places.  They have a private owned ATM machine with big fees if you do not have cash.

    You should still be able to get brisket until closing time.

    There is a place in Spicewood called Opies that puts lockhart to shame. Its on HWY 71 past Lakeway, well worth the drive. Best sausage that I ever had brisket is pretty darn good too.

    So, our plans changed. Instead of Austin, we ended up going to Tyler. I guess Franklins will have to wait until next time.

    Anybody have any suggestions for top notch barbecue in Tyler?
