We visited at 6:15 PM on a Sunday and they were pretty much sold out of ever thing but chicken, barbacoa, and Frito pie. My wife and her friends had chicken and her friends added barbacoa. They enjoyed their food and would visit again. I...had the Frito pie and it was at best, okay. I would visit again but not for the Frito pie.More

Did this dinky food truck desrve a five. Perhaps but while it was very good it wasn't perfect. I went on a Saturday to get the bacon rib and the brisket. They sold out of the bacon rib before I could order it, I was...about number 30 in line. The brisket was a ten, best I ever tasted. The sausage was the biggest surprise it too was a ten and I just don't throw around tens, they were absolutely fabulous in taste, tenderness and texture. The burger was very good not great the beef cheeks were tasty but a little too fatty for me in texture, my daughter loved them. It was overall a wonderful experience worth the hour and a half wait in the very slow moving line.More

Of all the barbecue spots in (and near) Austin that I tried LeRoy and Lewis was the best all-around spot. While Franklin Barbecue had better brisket, L & L has superior ribs (the bacon ribs were super yummy), delicious sausage and awesome beef cheeks. The...sides and desserts were a welcome and tasty addition. L & L provides excellent value for money with their 2 meats and 2 sides special. Sadly it was raining when we visited, but no worries, it was collocated on the grounds of Cosmic Coffee and beer which has indoor seating and a great selection of beers, specialty drinks and coffee creations to go along with your barbecue. Thanks LeRoy and Lewis for an awesome lunch!!!More

Overall the food was superb. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, especially since they were very aware of gluten allergy and cross contamination! The young gentleman slicing changed his knife, cutting board, and gloves immediately upon knowing there was a gluten allergy. The brisket...and smoked beef cheeks were amazing. All the sides were great also! And wait time in line was very short. Can’t wait to go back!More

Great BBQ lives up to the Texas Monthly ranking. Beef Cheeks-must have, Fatty Brisket-must have and Wild Boar with Jalapeños - must have (specials on some Saturdays). Sides were good also. Line was not long at about 11:30am. We have been to the Cosmic area...many times, mostly in the evenings. This time it was to hit up on L&L.BbqMore

Well, by the time I got there Saturday night they didn’t have any vegetarian options, but I can tell you that the cheddar cheesecake was delicious and I got to try the beet bbq sauce and the mustard sauce - both delicious. I was with...meat eaters and they all enjoyed their food. The atmosphere was great, lots of wonderful dogs.More

It’s like they’re doing you a favor by serving you overpriced BBQ and expecting a tip. GTFOH. You’re in the service industry, if you can’t offer a service with a welcoming smile don’t bother expecting a tip.

I had seen an eater video about Leroy and Lewis and drove down. The cauliflower burn ends were smoky yet still had a crunch. Really cool. The briskets was up there with the greats and the bbq sauce was perfect accompaniment. The sausage was also...quite good. The kale salad was okay.More

Well, covid-19 rules meant that Franklin's had a minimum order of 3 pounds. Which is like 90$ plus tax. And I cannot eat so much! So ... the locals convinced me to go to L & L. It was awful! They got my order wrong....Even so, only the beef cheeks and kimchi were edible. The burnt-tip cauliflower and the mac-n-cheese were inedible and borderline, respectively. I was blown away by how such a highly-recommended place could be so awful. I mean the cauliflower was AWFUL!More

LeRoy & Lewis bills itself as new barbecue. By that they mean it features different cuts of meat prepared in a traditional smoker. We tried their beef cheeks (the first time I ever ordered beef cheeks anywhere) and sausages. Both were excellent. The beef cheeks...were moist, tender and packed with flavor. The sausages were delicious. L&L is located in a large lot that is home to other food trailers. They share a tree-shaded outdoor seating area. Parking can be a problem on weekends. The staff was wonderfully friendly, freely sharing their thoughts on their offerings. We even got a tour of their smoke shed.More

Food trailer located at the Cosmic Coffee location in central location. Guys are friendly and willing to adjust for allergies when possible. Great outdoor location with easy parking, shady and sunny spots and garden areas.

So just when you thought you’ve had the best Austin and central Texas Pitmasters have to offer, you find LeRoy and Lewis. Simply some of the best bbq I’ve ever had, and I’ve sampled the best from Texas, though Tennessee, and back to Kansas City....Tender babacoa was moist and flavorful, with a little char and just the right amount of salt and pepper seasoning. Their ”peaceful pork” sauage is a must try, bursting with flavor and great texture. Pickled kimchi on the side you ask? Well yes, more please! Great atmosphere as well in the shady live-oak courtyard. Only regret was from my own rookie mistake, not getting to this hidden spot off of Congress Ave before they sold out of their signature beef cheeks. Next time my friends, next time. Don’t miss these guys when looking for Franklin’s peers, you’d be glad you stopped in.More
