The real deal, one of the better BBQ places

Rustic setting, sometimes music outside while waiting for a table. This place is a tradition in Austin.

My friend drove me here while I was visiting Austin last weekend and it is so worth the drive! It is right next to a vineyard, so the atmosphere of the location itself is really neat. Huge place with tons of picnic table style seating and the open bbq pit in the middle so you can smell the amazing food... More

Love this place. Great BBQ -- I personally like their turkey! But my husband and boys like all of it but especially the ribs! Enjoy!

I used to get the farmers plate, all of it was very good to me. It can be a little salty but I really like it, the vinegar slaw was big for me, I normally don't like slaw. I'll go back any chance I get.

BEST BBQ I've EVER HAD! Seriously, everything was delicious from the sausage, to the BBQ sauce, to the coleslaw, to the beans! We waited about 5 mins for a seat and went during dinner time on a Saturday! There is an area for kids to play while you wait outside and the property it sits on is just very scenic.... More

Travelled from Austin with my family and friends for my first BBQ experience. The weather was very ordinary - wet, but humid. The place was pumping with over an hours wait for a table inside. We decided to dry off a table once the rain stopped and ventured over to order our lunch from the outside kiosk. While others were... More

Big, country themed dining hall. Simple but complete menu. Prompt and helpful service. Ordered brisket, ribs and sausage - all very tasty. Pecan pies looked great but no room left!

My husband wanted to try this after seeing something about it on the food network. We invited another family and no one in our group was impressed. Some food items were good, but others weren't. I was disappointed when I tried to substitute a side salad for the coleslaw and was told no substitutions. The ribs, sausage and turkey were... More
