We carefully selected Kreuz Market from the list of worthy local BBQ joints, and we were not disappointed. Try the "Clod" - my personal favorite for great smoky flavor. We also had the brisket, regular sausage, jalapeno/cheese sausage, turkey, pork ribs, beans, and german potato...More

We couldn’t wait to get to Lockhart and try all the BBQ. This was our first stop. Our eyes were bigger than our stomachs. It took us 2 days to eat all the wonderful smoked meats. Pork ribs, pork chop, brisket and sausages.

I've been coming to Kreuz's Market for years (despite not living anywhere near Lockhart). It never disappoints. The do seem to have loosened their rules. They now have barbecue sauce available. It's not necessary in my opinion. The meat is always very moist and flavorful....More

I must have caught them on a bad day, being mid-week. I had a beef rib and brisket. For a $12 rib, there wasn't much meat on that big bone. It was a fatty and very chewy. In a word, unremarkable. The brisket was excessively...More

TV FOOD CHANNELS love this place and they do have great sausage but in the Smoke Ring there are lots better. In 3 visits our ribs and brisket were dry.

Another disappointing Lockhart experience. We sampled both ends of the brisket. The fatty portion was moist, and easily passed the pull test, but then the marbling was the most dense that I have ever encountered in a brisket. The lean end was as dry as...More

Honestly, it used to be one of the best BBQ spots around. But after two recent visits I will never come back again. First, the prices are almost vulgar, especially when combined with the recent quality drop. 30$+ for or three tiny sandwiches coupled with...More

I'd call. All seats are indoor. You can get your food and eat in the parking lot or a city park.

I used my Visa debit card there -- the one slightly odd thing I remember is that customers pay twice -- once for the meats, back in the smokehouse area, and once for the sides, drinks, etc in the dining area. But obviously... More
