I drove by on March 3, 2014 and the sign in the door reads "Closed for remodeling." My organization was hoping to get them to cater for us again in the summer. They catered for us last year and the overwhelming consensus was to re-hire them for 2014.

My wife and I were visiting from out of state and we ask our friend where the natives go for good Q. She took us to Texas Rib Kings and it was GOOD. I am a BBQ smoker myself and am hard to impress and they did just that. When you are in Austin you need to go.

Interesting no frills BBQ shack in a strip mall. Ribs were great without sauce.....brisket tender and smoky.....shredded pork had a little heat and tasty. Sides are cafeteria style and OK but who goes to a meat shop and quibbles over side items. Probably not the best of the best but if in the area worth a visit.

Great location, food, and service. Went to this place twice during my trip to Austin. The staff is very friendly and the Restaurant is clean and the food was EXCELLENT! The sausage, ribs, and pulled pork were great, and the sides were served in a buffet style. Plenty of parking in strip mall. Go here instead of wasting time in... More

Being from KC I'm a harsh BBQ critic but I generally like Texas BBQ. This place is okay but nothing to write home about. The brisket was really fatty but the sausage had great flavor and texture. The sauce was not great. The side dishes were served buffet style and looked tired and sad.

Perhaps in another state where barbecue isn’t taken seriously this spot would rank higher, but we were disappointed. Maybe we caught them on a rough day. Yes, the baby back pork ribs are pretty good, the beef brisket very good – the chicken dull and dry inside. Side dishes are above normal, almost very good without exception. Mediocre service needs...

This place has great ribs and brisket. The service is fast, the food is excellent and I love the Texas decor inside. The food is cheap, too.
