Since 1975 the County Line Austin Smokehouse and Grill has been serving up the biggest, leanest, most consistently awesome barbeque in the state. But that's just the half of it. Whether it's at the top of the Texas Hill Country or right on Lake Austin, our dramatic settings and fun, roadside cafe atmospheres are as unique and legendary as the food we serve!
You don't think we'd let you get away without some Texas barbecue, did you? Both County Line on the Lake and County Line on the Hill are best bets for successions of smoky barbecued brisket, hefty beef and pork ribs, juicy sausage and chicken, and plenty of fixings. All served amid 1940s roadhouse decor and picturesque outdoor decks and patios.
