I've been there twice this week. The food is delicious, the portions very generous, and the service couldn't have been better. The manager even came to our table both times to check on us! It's a very friendly place and I love the atmosphere. I highly recommend the hamburger with cheese and bacon, the brisket sandwich, fried okra, peach cobbler and bread pudding. Yummy.

Service was extraordinary! Our server was very professional and was quick to make recommendations. I had the 2nd cut brisket with beans and potatoe salad and was give coleslaw on the house. My fiance'got the brisket sandwich with potatoe salad. The 2nd cut brisket is highly recommended! We loved it! The only thing we didn't love was the potatoe salad. Other than that, everything was great! By the way, their milk shakes are great!!!!

Wasn't all that great. Curbside was a 20 minute wait, and I tried to enjoy the food but the brisket had way too much fat on it. My girlfriend was disappointed and so was I. We both woke up in the middle of the night holding each other's stomach not even assuming it was the food from prior. But she ate again today the left over Mac and cheese and she's still not feeling well. Thank god I threw the rest away. I wish I could have a refund as bad as it was and pricey as heck ! Over $61 and the containers they charge you more ? My mom's homemade bread pudding wasn't good at all in that “sustainable & reusable compartment” not worth the up charge for take out , but business is business and I fortunately will not be back.

First off I love brisket but the pulled pork beat the brisket here and due to that they only get 3 stars, other then that the service was great

Really nice setting , but not traditional Texas style BBQ at all . Prices are okay , but the brisket seemed like it was almost boiled. Was rubbery and tasted like liquid smoke . Absolutely no bark on the brisket either.Really disappointing. Bread was really good though .

So this was my second time eating beef ribs and I was very anxious but after getting them I was very disappointed. There wasn't much meat on the bones and taste was just okay. My potatoes didn't come out correctly, because the wait didn't put the order in correctly. But then when they fixed it they still was incorrect and cold. The highlight of the meal was the fried okra.

Food was great, the ambiance of the restaurant was adorable, service was questionable, but my server Jessica was attentive. Visiting from Orlando for the first time . I really enjoyed the Smokey ribs , the smell & taste lingered long after I devoured them . In addition to Mac&Cheese/ Garlicky Mashed Ps.Thanks for dessert Mark or Marc!!!!!!

I did not like what I ordered. The beans had chilli and the potatoes salad was too tangy. However, the mac and cheese was delicious. The brisket was too chewy and no flavor. The service was thumbs up! Also, I enjoyed my drink because the cup or glass was enormous!!

My brother ordered the food for my birthday.The delivery was fine. The potato salad and the BBQ sauce had too much vinegar. Did not enjoy the food.This was my 1st time to eat their food. I might try their ribs next time. Hopefully those will be better.

I was just all around disappointed. My friend and I ordered the bbq for 2. It was hardly anything good. It was more like a meal for 1. The ultimate margarita, was described to be for 2, it was not. The waiter seemed nice but didn't have a personality. The bbq was dry. I just wouldn't recommend.

The post pandemic crowds haven't returned at lunch yet, so this place is usually a pretty good experience at lunch. Haven't really had a bad meal here at all.

Review №30

Food, service and atmosphere here is usually good. Outside the restaurant you are greeted by the pleasant aroma of burning wood. However, the food does not appear to have a really strong smoke flavor. Its understandable for a restaurant I guess since they are pushing larger quantities. Either way I would go back and recommend this location to others.Also, the home made bread they have cost extra but it is really good.

I ordered online for curbside pickup, waited an additional 45 minutes after my order was supposed to come out. All I got for waiting and burning a half tank of gas was a free tea. I understand it was fathers day and they were busy but I watched people park, go inside, eat and come back out to leave. Unacceptable

No wonder it's not is busy as other restaurants it's just not as good as it used to be, the menu is too confusing and complicated the ribs were bland way pricey for what you get, Over the years I been there 30 times I would not go back as easy as I once did. Again way expensive for the amount served.

Review №35

This is one of the greatest bbq restaurants in the USA, extremely friendly and helpful service, and our hostess Diana was amazing. The ribs and bread are to die for. And I don't think any restaurant in the USA can top the chicken wings here.This is a great family friendly sit down restaurant. Don't forget to order the sweet tea to help wash down the ribs and the wings.

Great Barbeque! I had the beef rib slender plate. Nothing slender about it. It came with 2 large ribs and two sides. I also had the freshly baked bread. So good, the butter melted on it. I will be back!

Review №37

It was the most disappointing BBQ I've ever had. I've never left a restaurant review before but I was outraged enough by this visit. I ordered brisket sausage & coleslaw & it was all the worst. & it cost over $25. I don't understand why this restaurant would have 4.3 average review. I will never go back.

Review №38

Ambiance would be about what you expect for a BBQ joint: lots of old wood, old signage & vintage memorabilia. I'm sure this is supposed to be quaint, but at some point it moves to clutter & places to trap dust...Appetizer choice was the jalapeño cheese bites - these were great. Several different cheeses made for smooth texture with just the right bite. Three of us opted for the 3 meat platter: decent portions & flavor (lots of smoke, not much else). The bbq sauce was served on the side, warm & was pretty. Smoked turkey with pepper was really tasty. Brisket was the second best, chicken was dry & too smoky, pork was nearly entirely fat. not to my preference at all. Salad one of us ordered lacked three ingredients. Overall, not bad but not worth $112 for four for lunch.Heard a lot about the bread - but I've had better complimentary from chain restaurants & we didn't have to pay extra.

Every time I am in San Antonio I make it a point to visit The County Line. It's great BBQ with huge portions. I really like the pork ribs sauce it is mixed with orange juice and goes great on the ribs and pork sausage. The 2nd cut brisket is delicious and very well priced. They also have a wide selection of liquor and beer. Would strongly recommend anyone in the market for BBQ check it out.

Best BBQ Ever!If you live anywhere in Texas, you probably have heard that the county line has the best barbecue in Texas... This is the truth with a capital T! We came here planning to eat the barbecue buffet, but the portion sizes were so big, we decided to Simply order from the regular menu. This was no disappointment, as we have plenty of food for dinner and leftovers. The rack of beef ribs I ordered made me feel like I was Fred Flintstone. The Taste was excellent and everyone loved their meal. We will dine here everytime we visit San Antonio!

Best barbeque in San Antonio. Excellent service. This is where our family meets for special occasions.

Review №47

During the weekday, the County Line is mostly empty but has a relaxed atmosphere. I believed the service would have been prompt but to my surprise, the waiter was slow to tend to customers and forgot drink orders. The food makes up for the service. The BBQ wings were well seasoned and moist. I ordered a sirloin steak and enjoyed the flavor and sear on it. I would consider coming back again and definitely getting a slice of pecan pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Our server Adam recommended the 2nd cut brisket and while I usually get lean, this was slap your momma good. Not chewy at all for a slightly richer cut. Atmosphere is always great there too.

Review №49

I've been going to County Line since they used to be on 1604 near Stone Oak, back when there was absolutely nothing else out there. Quality and quantity have been up and down over the years, and losing Randy didn't help, but they're still around and still making pretty good BBQ. Prices are up because of the Covid-19 meat shortage, but you still get a a lot for your money. Don't overlook the burgers either.

Fresh bread, melt in your mouth brisket and the best ever frozen bourbon and coke. Heavenly.If you want to have a fantastic evening, make sure you request Ford. He is a real pro and everything he recommended was on the nose and he was outstanding. Best service ever and best food experience. Must try!!!!

4/8/20 We went on an evening walk and could smell someone grilling or smoking a brisket and all of a sudden I had a strong craving for some barbecue! After a quick google search, we decided on County Line (I've only ever heard good things about them but had never ate there myself). I called about 25 minutes before they were about to close and the gentleman I spoke with told me he had just put everything away but that it was still "piping hot" and didn't mind throwing together an order for us (unfortunately there were no fried options- thanks Rona!). We ordered the 5 link sausage plate and marble brisket with double sides of beans and mac & cheese. When we arrived for curbside pick up the gentleman brought our order out right away. The sausage was so delicious we ate the left overs straight out of the fridge for breakfast the next morning! The brisket didn't make it because it was so amazing.. we got the burned and fatty side and we couldn't stop eating it! The bbq sauce is pretty good as well! The cook even hooked it up with the onion, pickles, jalapenos and a hoagie bun. I wish I knew his name to give him a big shout out because he went above and beyond! So grateful for the great service he provided and for the amazing food!

Review №53

Wow...worst customer service I have received in quite a while. I drove 45 minutes across town to pick up an early Father's Day meal for my dad and unfortunately the meal was terrible. I spent over $100 on this meal and when I got home the food was so dry and tasted like propane that we couldn't even eat it. So when I called and spoke to the manager Garret, rather than listening to my concerns and understand my frustration he argued with me and insisted that when “he” packaged the food that it was perfect. I can't believe the level of unprofessionalism and lack of customer service that I received today from such a highly regarded restaurant. Unfortunately I will not be coming back to this establishment. And check out the photos that I posted so you can see just how dry the food was.

Good change up. Food came out before my salad or the bread. Fries were old & cold. Had to send them back. Heard the cook say all the way from back, "They were fresh when they went out." No they weren't young man. Don't call your customers liars. Delicious garlic new potatoes, fresh fries, sausage & salad. Would have been great except the fry cook that needs a lesson in professionalism.

Two different briskets. One is lean, the other a bit of juicy fat. Both packed with taste. Nice dark bark on both. Even the sandwiches are great. The fresh sliced bread is worth the trip alone. The manager ,a Mr Garret stopped by our table to insure all was okGreat time to stop by midday.

Review №59

The service was great and the food came out quick and warm. I ordered the sausage, brisket and macaroni and cheese. As a Texan who critics BBQ food, this restaurant is not a place I would recommend for great tasting BBQ food. The brisket was dry and bland. The macaroni and cheese needed salt and pepper. We also ordered the chicken at our table and it wasn't the worst but it definitely needed some moisture to taste the flavors. I won't be returning to this restaurant or recommending it to others.

Review №61

The server was sensational! He was quick, took care of our every need, and gave helpful eating suggestions! The only thing I didn't like was that the brisket and ribs were overcooked. (The brisket more than the ribs) The green beans were also overcooked. (Very) Also, there was a lot of black pepper on the ribs and the red mash. I don't like hot stuff. There should be a choice of peppered or non- peppered because the preference is basically 50/50. It was not anywhere near as good as the barbeque that was served at the original on Loop 1604. And the original cinnamon butter isn't served anymore. While I really appreciate the effort to serve a healthier butter substitute, the original should still be available as a choice. I did, however; love the banana pudding!

I'm not sure what you would call the decor here, maybe old American pioneer. Imagine if the Hatfields and McCoys had stopped fighting, opened a bbq joint, and hung all their stuff on the Wall TGI Friday style, and this is would be the county line. The food varied greatly from fantastic to awful so it's hard to give this a definitive rating. We started with the fried pepper jack cheese bite which were good. I got the pit master's special platter which I guess, from their description, is the holy grail of beef brisket and the fried ocra and corn on the cob. The brisket and corn were both great. The ocra bad, like real bad, the fry job made the outside hard and chewy, I think they may fried it, let it cool, and then refried it. The wife got the two meat platter with turkey and sausage. Her sides were the Mac n' cheese and mashed potatoes. The turkey was incredible, juicy, with a smoky flavor. The sausage was also good but not life changing like the turkey. The Mac tasted like stoffers but the mashed potatoes were decadent. Overall, the food is hit or miss hence the three stars but if your looking at just meat it would be five. Also our waitress Jacqueline was one of the best waitresses I've had in a long time.

It's been years since I came to the County Line. The last time I was here, I ate a full rack of pork ribs. I tried to do the same again this visit, but I failed miserably. Even so, I had a great time trying to do it all over again. Everything was grand as I remember it being. Thanks for the full belly and great memories.

Review №79

Disappointed. In the past 10 years the change in the food has shown. We loved the County line. But, every time we give it another go we are disappointed. The brisket was dry. The server, was training someone. Honestly, the trainee was a better server than our server. My husband's order was half right. But the frustration is too much each time to try to explain over and over. And this is not some special order. Its off their menu. Trying to find my juicy Texas BBQ

Got there about 45 minutes after they opened...and my group got slow service, and cold food.

It being cold didn't help out any.

Review №86

My husband said it was the best chicken fried steak in town, so I had to find out for myself. It is awfully good! The steak wad tender, the breading just right, and the gravy wad amazing. There was a lot of flavor in that one dish. The coleslaw IS the best in town with big chunks of fresh cabbage and a creamy dressing. The fried okra is perfectly crispy. For a homestyle dish, there was a lot of flavor through everything and very satisfying.

I really can't find anything wrong with this place throughout the years. Great service and even better food. Not terribly crowded at lunch during the work week.Very good selection of food - I had the smoked turkey breast with beans and potato salad on my most recent visit.P.S. - check in on Yelp and you get a free sausage appetizer. Their BBQ sauce is perfect btw. I know sauce varies and is a matter of personal preference, but I REALLY like their sauce!

We just came and picked up county line for lunch for the first time. We ordered a two-person meat platter with two sides. The meat in it was barely enough for one person and the brisket was a bit dry and the pulled pork had more fat than meat. For my sides I ordered sweet potato fries and mashed potatoes. But when I got home I noticed that they gave me (bland) baked beans instead. . The bread was tasteless and dry and the "butter" it comes with tastes like plastic. For nearly 20 dollars, we expected much better quality and quantity We are disappointed. and my server was very friendly, but the food and accuracy left much to be desired.
