Roughly 35 miles southeast of Austin lies the quaint town of Lockhart. Known as the “BBQ Capital of Texas,” the city has plenty to offer tourists and daytrippers, like its adorable square, the historic Caldwell County Courthouse, and, of course, plenty to eat and drink.
Some of Austin’s favorite sons and daughters have made outposts in Lockhart, including Nickel City’s Travis Tober and Better Half’s Rich Reimbolt at Old Pal Bar, Foreign & Domestic’s Sarah Heard and Nathan Lemley at Commerce Cafe, and Casey Wilcox, formerly of Justine’s Brasserie, at Little Trouble.
