Good meal and average pricing - recommend the brisket here. Very close to Hotel Indigo. We were there for late lunch and it wasn't terribly busy at that time. Our service was fine and there wasn't much of a wait at all for our meals...More

We had seen Stubb's BBQ Sauce in the supermarket and wanted to visit the restaurant. We shared a half pound each of brisket, pulled pork and sausage, and the food was EXCELLENT! Especially the brisket, which was to die for. It was a Monday night...More

Stubbs is a good place to eat for ambiance and decent BBQ especially before a show/concert at their own "backyard" venue. We shared two appetizers (fried green tomatoes and jalapeño poppers) and a three meat plate (turkey, brisket, spicy sausage). Service and food were good....More

Went to a Melissa Etheridge show and enjoyed the scene of enthusiastic fans, who were well behaved, organised staff and tasty barbecue sandwiches. Granted that attending as VIP guests helped

As an Austin native, I'm embarrassed to say that I had never been to Stubb's until this past weekend. I'm a little distressed to now know what I've been missing! The brisket sandwich was small, but it came with two sides, so my mother and...More
