We got out of the excitement (chaos) of 6th street and landed here for dinner. What a great choice. Everyone was friendly and the BBQ was great. 3 couples, we all had a variation of 3 meat BBQ. It was all good!

Stopped by Stubb's for lunch and got the brisket. It was fabulous and it didn't have too much sauce. If you are in Austin, make sure to stop by for the BBQ.

This place has classic “family style” BBQ that you can share with your table mates at a reasonable price. The quality of all the meats and sides was excellent and totally in line with our expectations.
