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 families, older couples, and anyone seeking a reasonably civilized traditional meal in bucolic surroundings enjoy the specialty slow-smoked ribs—huge slabs of beef and tender pork. The lakeside

branch on F.M. 2222 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.

The Above Reviewer Don't Know BBQ..

If he/she thinks Rudy's is superior to County Line. NONE of Rudy's meats can even qualify as "Average" and ALL is overpriced. County Line has the second best BBQ ribs in town, brisket is average and chicken and pork are OK. Cole slaw is excellent and potato salad is OK.
