My wife and I visited City Market in Luling (pronounced "“Lou-ling”) during a Central Texas BBQ Crawl in October 2015. It's sometimes referred to as "Original City Market BBQ".

DO NOT CONFUSE City Market in Luling, TX with "Luling City Market" in Houston, TX. They are unrelated and the former is the real deal. There's an interesting article by barbecue author Rob Walsh that explains how the confusion came about.

City Market is a favorite of folks taking in the barbecue joints around Lockhart, TX like Kreuz, Smitty's, and Black's. It's just 15 miles south of Lockhart on US-183 and worth the effort to get to.

I did an extensive write-up about our experience at City Market here, with photos:
