Stopped in for a couple of beers and an appetizer. Beer was very good; though on the high end. Food was OK; but nothing special. Our waitress was very good; though the girl serving the table across from us looked like she was nursing a hangover and used single word responses. We especially appreciated the designated parking garage...good thing to have in this area. Hope to come back again and try a full meal.

This place looks awesome, great outdoor seating, live music, dog-friendly, and they brew their own beer. What more could you ask for? Oh, you know, just that they ever actually have any of the beers that you want, that your food comes out good and is worth the price you paid for it, and that the service is good.. nope, asking too much. Have been there 2 or 3 times, the place had so much potential we had to give it a fair shot. Didn't do anything but make us dislike it more. Our friends ordered the roadkill, this was the icing on the cake. They "ran out of their homemade chips" and instead of telling them this, they charged them the $9 or whatever for a plate of store-bought heb nacho chips (and didn't warn them, explain the situation, or care when they asked what happened, or want to give them a refund or make it right). SO over this place

Had the brisket sandwich and it was super yummy, my daughter had a Rueben made with brisket too and she said it was really good. We had the 6 count brew sample and all their beers were really quite tasty.

This is a popular eatery in the party district of Austin; they have a well-deserved good reputation for barbecue. The BBQ beef brisket and pork ribs are excellent, but other aspects prevent a better rating than average. Prices are unusually high; BBQ chicken is just average, side dishes are just OK, service is average to pretty good, dessert very good. Well known and local craft beers are available, again a little pricey. If you don't care much for the above, and just want really good meats, Uncle Billy's is worth a try.

Loved this restaurant. It was both family and dog friendly! Loved the ambience of the outdoor area set in a very south Texas theme . We all found the food delicious . The staff could not have been more helpful. I would really recommend his for families.
