Barb’s is the new kid on the block in Lockhart’s barbecue scene, and one of the few spots in town where you’ll find people waiting in folding chairs outside. They have classic cuts like brisket and pork ribs, but also inventive flavors and sides. Instead of potato salad or mac and cheese, you’ll find heaps of neon green spaghetti and a generous sprinkle of freshly grated lime zest on each plate. Everything here is good, but Barb’s neighbors are just more consistently great (to be fair, they’ve been at it for a few more decades). You should definitely still make the trek here to hang out on a late Saturday morning, since the camaraderie is reminiscent of the 6am crowds camping out for a pound of Franklin brisket.
