County Line Barbecue Review

Texas is famous for its barbecued ribs, smoked brisket, and related fare, and this contender definitely holds its own among the competition. The barbecue here is dry rubbed with the sauce on the side, and the various combo platters and family-style options let you sample from smoked turkey and sausage, brisket, beef and pork ribs, and more. The atmosphere is rustic–casual, so don't be afraid to put your elbows on the table.

    OK BBQ, Great Dessert

    The smoked BBQ was dry, not at all juicy. But the service was fantastic (thanks to our waiter, Dave) and the Bread Pudding with Bourbon Sauce for dessert was decadent.

    County Line Barbecue Review

    We thought the baby back ribs were very good and the brisket was excellent. We also liked the creamy cole slaw and the thickly sliced slightly sweet bread. Unfortunately the black-eyed peas had cilantro in it. We would have preferred to eat outside but all of the tables were taken. The inside had typical BBQ joint decor.

    Great Location on the Riverwalk

    My spouse and I dined at County Line BBQ on the Riverwalk for lunch in early July 2013. The location is fantastic, right on the banks and in a busy area that provides great people-watching opportunities. The restaurant has outdoor seating and indoor seating, and is much larger indoors than it looks from the outside. There always seems to be a line here, so check in with the hostess and then have a drink at the bar (which also has both indoor and outdoor seating). The atmosphere is casual (food, dress code, children welcome). The milkshakes are a great non-alcoholic option! The food is tasty and plentiful, however, not as authentic as the barbecue we had later in the week at two famous spots outside of Austin. We heard that barbecue prepared within city limits must be done without wood, whereas the two places we visited in Austin were far enough outside cities that they could use wood to smoke their meats, and it makes a huge difference, in our opinion. Still, if you will not have an opportunity for wood-smoked barbecue, then County Line is a good option in the tourist area.
