Stopped in on a weekday at 12:40 & was immersed in the "you're at a GREAT Texas BBQ joint" feeling immediately. Cars parked up and down the street (like it seems to be a most great places there is little parking). I saw some outside picnic tables with people from all walks of life talking and eating. I made it inside and found about 4 tables and not too bad of a line. The lady taking orders (& everyone else) were super friendly. I felt like a regular. I ordered the 3 meat and a table opened up so I ate there inside. The line came by my table so I was able to tell from the talk all the first timers who were in line. The returners were giving them pointers on what sausage, ribs & sides to pick. I got moist brisket which had a black bark and plenty of smoke. Great flavor and unlike some have said it had a good salty taste. The spicy sausage looked dry but I was surprised at how tender and good it was. It snapped when you ate it and had an excellent flavor. The ribs I got were St Louis style and although the meat was firm it would pull off the bone in one big delicious piece. I am definitely becoming a rib man. It had a pretty pink ring and was moist was a brisket rub kind of flavor. I don't line multi meat plates. I'd rather get more of 1 or 2 meats but at Gatlin's I don't know what meat I'd eliminate. I ordered it to go so I could take the left overs but there were none! My choice for BBQ in Houston.

Simple, great sandwiches and plates, beef is tender and perfectly cooked. Fresh, crisp cole slaw and great tater salad. Beautiful Texan place with a handful of small tables on the porch and some more in the yard out front. Been there twice, and will return. Perfect for a lunch when out bicycling!

Still the best in Lockhart and second best in central Texas.

It saddens me to hear the words brisket and bbq sauce in the same sentence.
