Fodor's Review

Part of a local chain, County Line has a few too many amenities to be considered a classic Central Texas barbecue joint. Chairs instead of bargain-basement picnic setups, little loaves of multigrain bread on tables, and functional air-conditioning make things downright civilized. But anyone seeking a traditional BBQ meal in bucolic surroundings can find solace in the slow-smoked ribs—huge slabs of beef and tender pork—that can be ordered in family-style options, replete with generous sides of cole slaw, potato salad and beans. The lakeside branch on F.M. 2222, with a wooden deck overlooking Lake Austin, is particularly picturesque.

Very overrated

Not the best of anything: barbeque, view, service or atmosphere. Try Rudy's instead.

Better Q elsewhere!

The beef ribs were to tough to chew, brisket stringy and the chicken dry. Have had better at other locations in Austin.
