Kreuz Market

Smokey Sausage from the BBQ Capital of Texas
Kreuz Market

There’s no forks and no sauce, but plenty to love at this legendary Lockhart BBQ famed for its sublime sausages and delicious smoked meats. Founded in 1900 by Charles Kreuz as a meat market and grocery store – customers would buy their barbecue and sausage (which was wrapped in butcher paper), then buy some items from the grocery store to go along with it, and eat it off the butcher paper with their hands and a pocket knife with no sauce, of course. If you visit, don’t look for any barbecue sauce or forks as they are still missing in action from Kreuz Market to this day.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Kreuz Market is now one of Texas' most renowned BBQ pit stops. Kreuz sausage and brisket has been featured on Food Network's "America's Best" and on Travel Channel's Food Wars.
