Picked up brisket to go. Good smoke ring. Tender and juicy. Nice area for dine in. Sausage is tasty.

Stopped on the way through town and loved the food! The absolute best chopped brisket I have ever had!! Only downside- they were out of a lot of food by our 8pm stop.

Stopped on our way West. I got the ribs and my husband got the brisket. The ribs were tender but not very flavorful. Good sauce helped. Husband liked his brisket. Servers were friendly. We would return.

The food was great, but a little pricey for what you get compared to other BBQ places. The staff wasn't the friendliest or most outgoing, but they weren't rude. The pulled pork was great, as was the brisket. The second time we came they were...More

No one was rude or unpleasant, but no one who worked there was cheerful or welcoming. The food was fine, but not the "best" as advertised. The smoked turkey got a thumbs up!

Located in the heart of the hill country, Lum's serves up vintage Texas smoked BBQ along with sinister sides and carefully prepared deserts. Our approach to barbecue is simple: lots of time and lots of wood. Our meat is dry rubbed with a select few spices and then slow cooked over mesquite wood. Lum's was co-founded in 1976 by father and son, Louis and Richard Lumbley. We strive to provide a comfortable and friendly dining experience executed with exquisite small town hospitality.
