Schmidt Family Barbecue

When Schmidt Family Barbecue opened in 2013 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.

Reviews

  • This place is definitely solid. I am worried about it though. The last time I went, there were only 3 tables occupied on a Saturday at noon. I’m surprised that the people of Bee Caves have not caught on.
