In July, Kent Black, general manager of Black's Barbecue in Lockhart, announced he would be opening a spinoff restaurant in San Marcos. Black said the San Marcos location is on track to open in April at 500 Hull St.
Fans of Black's famed Lockhart location will feel right at home in the new restaurant, which will be called Kent Black's Barbecue, he said.
"It's going to be a similar style [to the Lockhart location]," Black said. "I was born and raised in that cooking tradition, so we expect to continue in that tradition. If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
