    Going back to Austin

    We are going back to Austin to see our son. Last time I waited in line at Franklin BBQ. It was super good, but I want to try somewhere else this time. I had planned on going to Snow's, but they are only open on Saturdays, and we will not be there on a Saturday. We are particularly interested in beef ribs.

    Would anyone like to offer any suggestions - I do have some ideas, but would like to hear what Pit Members have to say.

      Aren't there supposed to be a couple of great ones in Lockhart? But I can't attest personally:
      Lockhart

      • Black’s Barbecue
      • Kreuz Market*

      I’m sure you will find a great bbq joint around Austin. Be safe and have fun.

        Do not miss LA BARBEQUE. Talk to Brendan Lamb, he is a great bird and he knows his smoke. He showed me around last time.

        Black's in Lockhart is also a must eat and see. It is amazing stuff. The smell of that place is out of control.

          Take a side trip to a little hole-in-the-wall town of Lexington just outside of Austin. There you will find a gem of a place called SNOW'S BBQ. Why Snow's? Well it was just voted THE top BBQ joint in the recent edition of Texas Monthly Magazine's Top 50 BBQ joints in Texas. Just ask for Miss Tootsie. If its #1 in Texas, you know it's got to be good.....

            Troutman - I never said I didn't want to go to Snow's. That was my first choice, but they are only open on Saturdays, and we won't be there on a Saturday.

            Also, with regard to Snow's, you have to get there super early. I've never been there myself, but I used to pass through Lexington a few times a year, and was told that by locals when I inquired.

          How about Coopers in Llano? http://www.coopersbbqllano.com/index.html
          There's beef ribs in downtown austin at Iron Works too: https://ironworksbbq.com/

            I second the Iron Works recommendation. I had them last year and I was impressed. Good barbecue overall.

          If you have time, a trip to Driftwood to The Salt Lick would be great this time of year.

          Sit back with your favorite beverage and watch this video:

            If I ever were to go to Austin I'd have to have a Mad Dog Margarita at the Texas Chili Parlor Bar.

            Any chance you could get down to Lockhart? Blacks, Kreuz, Smitty's. Also out of town a ways is the Salt Lick, which is in a very neat setting and has good Q as well.

              I wanted to go to Snow's which is about an hour from my son, so anything within an hour of Austin is doable, but we will probably stay local.

            Blacks wasn't very good last time I went there. I would recommend Kreuz or Smitty's before Blacks or Salt Lick. I would recommend La Barbeque or Louie Mueller's over any others.

              Cooper's in Austin has some really good brisket. I ate there this summer, and it was some of the best restaurant Q I've had.

                I think these are the same folks that are in Llano.

              Wow, surprised more people haven't said Louie Mueller. Still one of my favorites.

                I like LMs, but my wife doesn't. Doesn't like their texas-style-thin-watery sauce. I like it though... And the place is a piece of history...

              Stiles Switch is good too. http://www.stilesswitchbbq.com/ Get there at 11am or you'll be waiting...

                My daughter and son-in-law recently went to a wedding in Austin. They ate at LA Barbecue during the trip and sil said "Your barbecue is great but the meat we had there was like nothing I have ever tasted. It was truly amazing." They did not know the popularity of the place. Waited in line almost 3 hours and just before they placed their order they announced beef ribs were sold out.
