It's the full pork ribs here that steal the show! Nice bark, not too thick or dry, good smoke ring and perfectly tender. One if the finest pork ribs in Tx. Chopped brisket and sausage were good. Service was excellent and the restaurant was very clean and well run.

Delicious!!! Beef rib is as big as my forearm! Brisket was fabulous, fell apart just looking at it. Peach cobbler was a nice finish.

Great beans sides. Best on their menu appeared to be the pork ribs fall of the bone tasted little sweet and not to smoked just right. Brisket good flavor but felt it was little dry.

The king of Lockhart; BBQ done right. Man their sausage links are so good I'd crawl over hot coals just for a link. Jalapeño cheddar sausage is handmade and out of this world. Pork ribs had excellent peppery taste and was tender as pork ribs can be. Brisket was almost perfect; moist and nice smoke ring; very slightly inconsistent and a little bit more crust would've been nice. For a town rightfully named BBQ Capital of Texas, this place is the golden star.

Robert Payne has worked as a butcher in the past, and more recently for the Butter Krust bread bakery. His wife, Penny, was also in food service at a local school cafeteria. Three years ago, they both decided to retire and open up a barbecue joint in Burnet. They chose a building on the west side of town that has seen number of barbecue joints come and go. One of those was Burnet County Barbeque…
