No trip to Texas is complete without barbecue, and you cannot go wrong at Green Mesquite. We ordered pork and brisket and were delighted with the yummyness of our entrées. I would suggest, however, that they consider using bigger plates, as their ample portions were difficult to manage on the small plates that we had. Other than that, it was... More

We saw the tourist lines at downtown restaurants, and saw this place was busy on the way to Zilker park. After an afternoon at the park, we stopped on the way out. It was a nice surprise how good the food was, and lots of it.

When I travel, I like to see if where I am going offers any restaurants that has been on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives - and Austin had no shortage of them. The Green Mesquite BBQ was high on the their list, and I LOVE barbeque - so it was a "no brainer" for me. When I drove up, it appeared... More

We stumbled upon this place and decided to try it. The food was excellent. BBQ was really really good and their vegetables tasted homemade! The service was great also. If I'm ever in the area again, I wouldn't hesitate to eat here again!

I have been here several times. The service is always pretty good. All dinners come with a good assortment of sides. The barbeque is pretty good. The sauce is tasty. There is indoor and outdoor seating. There is available parking. Good for friends, families, couples, lunch and dinner.

We ate here today during a thunder storm. When we got there the power was out and to our surprise they were still able to cook. Our server was great and very attentive. We ordered the fried pickles as an appetizer and they were really good. All of us really liked our meals. The power being out made our trip... More

Average BBQ, below average service. Ordered the Brisket plate with corn and potato salad. The brisket itself was average tasting. (I've had better in Austin, but this was alright). The corn was amazing, and if you like your potato salad to be all mustard and nothing else, this potato salad is for you. The corn, however, was great. We also... More

We found this BBQ place on the recommendation of the Food Network Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. We ordered a variety of dinners: ribs (excellent), BBQ Pork on a bun, a Prime Rib plate, and the Catfish. All were good, but nothing outstanding. The restaurant is very casual and the service was friendly. The restaurant was a bit difficult to find... More
