We stop here every time we're on the road back to Kerrville. Their BBQ is really tasty, and service is usually quick. We had a plate, and a sandwich, and still had plenty to take home for dinner. Always good.. Always friendly.

Family of 4 shared 3 plates of good BBQ. Meat is definitely the star of this show; brisket, ribs, and pork loin all very good.

I admit it: Franklin's brisket is a hard act to follow, so I'm trying not to judge against that. The brisket at Lum's is pretty good. If you're looking for bbq along I10, it's worth strategizing to stop here for lunch.

Good barbeque reasonably priced. We had the chopped beef sandwich which was stacked high and had soft fresh bread, and the brisket/sausage plate. Jalapeno sausage was delicious. Courteous staff.

Located in the heart of the hill country, Lum's serves up vintage Texas smoked BBQ along with sinister sides and carefully prepared deserts. Our approach to barbecue is simple: lots of time and lots of wood. Our meat is dry rubbed with a select few spices and then slow cooked over mesquite wood. Lum's was co-founded in 1976 by father and son, Louis and Richard Lumbley. We strive to provide a comfortable and friendly dining experience executed with exquisite small town hospitality.
