Looks like Black's is opening another new location, but this time it is in Austin. I hope this doesn't mean the San Marcos location is no longer in the works. I think it will be ok since the twins running the Austin location won't be the same as the pit master in San Marcos.

Any updates on the San Marcos location?

Hooray for great BBQ places growing in central Texas.

I recently emailed Black's to see if the San Marcos location was still a go.

Here is his reply:
Our Pitmaster Kent Black is opening a new BBQ in San Marcos at 500 Hull in San Marcos.

It is still in the remodeling stage but Kent is hoping to be open by the summer.

So if you're hungry for BBQ now, come on out to Lockhart! We hope to see you soon.

Speaking of BBQ places, has anybody been to the new location for Hays County BBQ? We went there on May 10th. The food was still excellent, but the location left me disappointed. I saw the old location has been reopened under another name.

Yeah, the owner of the property is a bit of a strange ranger, which is part of why the BBQ at that location has changed names/owners so many times. I think this is what finally drove HaysCo BBQ to find another location. I like their BBQ, but I do not like their new location--I think they are just leasing there though with longer-term plans to find a better home.

Black's project is moving really, really slow. Don't know what the deal is there--might drive by this weekend.

I hope they find a better (and safer) home. Michael and his family are good people. His son recognized me as soon as I walked in the door and came out to chat.

Diving off the highway, cutting across 2 lanes of traffic, and making the turn into the parking lot is an adventure.

I'm actually growing to love (not like) the new location. It is very easy to get to, very easy to get others to, and the outdoor seating is surprisingly nice. The live music is cool, too. I am there most Friday nights lately, and it is pretty easy to talk friends from Austin, Buda, and New Braunfels into joining me.

It seems far enough from the exit ramp to me. I've never had any trouble getting over.

When I voted for Obama, they gave me a special button to control the traffic light at the underpass.

I thought that was a given, for any of us who keep sending LT money.

lurker wins the Internet today.

I don't have an issue getting in there depending on the time of day/traffic. I just don't think the location has any unique character. When I look at it, I still see a shitty used car lot.

Looks like Kent Black's BBQ is now open. I need to check it out next time I'm in town.

Anyone else gone yet? Looks like a great atmosphere, but I hope the BBQ is up to the Black's name.
