Hill Country communities have always been home to good barbecue and creative small business. Lucy’s Barbecue in Lakehills, Texas proves that the pandemic hasn’t changed things. I’ve watched as Lucy’s has grown and developed its personality.
It’s tough to select highlights, but here are my favorites:
The shrugging skeleton at the grill and the tie-dyed sign capture the spirit of the place.
This classic station wagon, complete with “Woodstock or Bust”, deer, and flamingo is wonderful. And note the peace sign on the table.
In another nod to that golden era, there’s a Beatles lyric and enigmatic nose and glasses on the wall. Perhaps the glasses are a tribute to John Lennon in his granny-glasses days.
But Lucy and crew aren’t just artistic. They also know how to cope with a changing business world. As the pandemic dragged on they added menu boards and tables on posts for drive-up service. Lakehills gets a lot of weekend Medina Lake visitors and motorcyclists. There’s a reason Lucy’s hours say “until sold out.”
Once again, thanks to Loretta for her post-production work on the photos.
