Very friendly folks who love making good BBQ. The six of us ordered the State Champ Two (1lb of brisket/1lb pork ribs), with an additional two rings of jalapeño cheese sausage, and half smoked chicken. This was plenty of food with leftovers to take home....More

They do BBQ really well. Great sauce, great sides...the jalapeno mac n cheese is a winner. Only tried the brisket which I would go back for. Very friendly staff. Only downside was it was a little on the pricey side.

As we were driving home from Austin we decided we wanted to get some BBQ to take home for dinner. We really wanted Rudy's BBQ but we were too tired to drive that far. We decided we'd try out Schmidt's at the Hill Country Galleria...More

All of the smoke meats they have are excellent. We enjoy the brisket on a regular basis. The ribs are tender. Yumm!

Schmidt is one of the best tasting BBQ places in Austin! We came across this place just by driving around, but now it's our go-to for brisket, turkey, etc.

I was a bit unsure of taking out from here on the way to visit my mom, as many so so or not good reviews. To my pleasant surprise, the brisket was very tasty, moist, well-charred on the edges, with the right amount of fat....More

I am somewhat of a Bar-B-Que connoisseur. Let me keep this short and sweet. The food is good but the pricing is outrageous. The most expensive I have ever encountered. You can eat at a premium steak house for what a plate of BBQ cost...More

We appreciate you coming in and dining with us. Our plates are priced from $11.75 for our one meat, 2 sides and a drink to $18.75 for 3 meats (3/4 lb of meat), 2 sides and a drink. These are in line and in many...More

If you go to Schmidts make sure you try the brisket and the sausage. Both are delicious. Like most BBQ restaurants this is order in line and take to table. Alcohol is available in bottles as you go in, and there are of course plentiful...More

Dropped in for a lunch pickup. I ordered a plate with pork ribs, two sides and a drink. I filled the cup with sweet tea. Ordering here is cafeteria style where you shout out what type of meat you want and then select your sides....More
