Barbecue that's all gussied up. – In Short
While purists might be dismayed to find that their meat arrives at the table already doused in sauce, they'll be appeased by brisket that boasts a thick red line of smoky flavor, peppery turkey breast and the highly recommended homemade sausage. County Line is also one of the few barbecue places where the side dishes are worth tasting.
Nothing special – I know Texans rave about their BBQ, but this restaurant was average at best. The brisket was dry and the ribs and beans were cold. I'm sure no Texan would believe me, but there are better BBQ restaurants in Los Angeles.
Yummy! Service and food are EXCELLENT. – Great food, excellent service and a place you will return time and time again. The menu offers variety and I haven't found anything that is not exceptional. A definate must if you are in the mood for meat.
Excellent ribs & sides - fun atmosphere – This is for the I10 location. Went on Wednesday night during their summer music series and had great fun, food and music. The baby backs were very good and available with or without sauce or with sauce on the side. The sides were excellent, especially the potato salad and it is difficult to get good potato salad in a restaurant. We were seated immediately even though they were busy and the service was excellent. Good cold beer and no rush despite the crowd. Will certainly go back before we leave the area. I think the 2 reviews preceding this one are for the River Walk store a major tourist area, the folks at this location were locals. Try this place, you will like it.
Nothing special – Was disappointed with these "authentic" Texas BBQ ribs. Like the next review, my baby backs were tough, not fall-off-the-bone. Had to saw through them with a knife and fork. A friend had the beef brisket and it was ok, but should have been better considering it was supposed to be "slow roasted 18 hours". We thought the sauce had a certain "gasoline" quality to it. Beans were very average.
Service was prompt - maybe too prompt - like all the tourist traps on the river, the food comes up about 2 minutes after you order it. Can you say "mass production" or "heat lamp"?
OVERRATED!!!! – I visited this restaurant chain in 2 occasions. In both I was disappointed on the food and service (especially after hearing over and over again the radio commercials on this restaurants being The Bar B Q King. The food was cold and my Baby Backs were really tuff.
I will never go again and I wouldnt recommend it to any of my friends and relatives.
As a note, I visited 2 different locations each time I went, the one at the River Walk and the IH10 location.
Solo in San Antonio – There for the first time looking for a bar outside to sit and enjoy some Texas ribs - after taking a left out of the Hyatt and finding nothing to fit the bill, I headed to the right and found the County Line. It was perfect - sat at the bar (outside), had a margarita, ribs, a beer. The ribs were good, slaw - great, fries so-so. Service was friendly and promt. The tracter seats were a bit hard on my rump.
