Very, very average BBQ. Almost no smoke flavor, the meat came out lukewarm (portions were massive on the 4 meat plate), and the highlight of the experience was the sweet tea and green beans. The brisket had almost no flavor, the ribs were very average, the chicken was decent, and the pork shoulder was just "eh." Overall? Good atmosphere, welcoming staff, and reasonably priced average food.

Stopped in today for lunch. Had the ribs and pulled pork....both phenomenal! Ribs were tender, smoky, flavorful, you really didn't even need sauce. Pulled pork was moist and delicious. Love the fact that this joint is 15 mins away going back for breakfast tomorrow!

Brisket had a great smoke ring but was not that tender. Sausage was average.

Brisket, ribs, and brisket sandwich were all delicious. You gotta try the cheesecake also. It all gets better each time we come by.

When Schmidt Family Barbecue opened late last year it was billed as a taste of Lockhart, without having to drive to Lockhart. Two of the most famous barbecue joints in the state, Kreuz Market and Smitty’s, had put aside their differences. In a show of family unity, they partnered and created a bright, new, shiny barbecue joint in Bee Cave, just west of Austin. When I first visited on a preview night, all the signs of Lockhart…
