We are having Pok-e-Jo's cater our daughters wedding and had never been to the restaurant. (Daughters Choice) My wife and I ordered different items to try. The brisket and ribs were fantastic. Turkey and sausage were melt in your mouth great. Potato casserole, beans, corn bread casserole were great. One of the workers asked us a few questions and once... More

What seemed to be a good deal ended up being good amount of food, not that much meat. I guess I should have been suspicious when I saw you could get cobbler as a side. Flavor was fine, nothing out of the ordinary, but the amount of meat was so little it was just unfair. Got lots of sides, not... More

This restaurant offered great bbq and sides! We ordered one of the family meals and for about $50 we had WAY more food than we could possibly eat! Our favorites- the jalapeño cornbread and bbq chicken. The peach cobbler was amazing too!

We had Pok-e-Jo's cater a dinner for about 15 ladies and the fajitas were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! We got the mixed fajitas with all the sides! I'm picky on my queso and guacamole but it was delicious. They came and set up everything at the house and did a great job and they were very prompt on getting there! So easy... More

We tried the 3 meat plate and between the 2 of us they were: brisket, turkey, sausage, and ribs. We for sure did not like the sausage. It was too slimy for our taste.

I am a visitor to Austin TX. I live in Wilmington, NC where BBQ is something different. In Texas it means different kinds of meat smoked and served with sauce. I had a 2 meat plate which included Texas pulled pork and sausage. Both were very tasty. I had sides of Mac & cheese and Cole slaw. Both were very... More

I'm not even done eating and I'm already writing my review. Walked in and asked the man behind the counter what's good? He proceeded to cut off small samples of everything and it was all good. Settled on 2 meat platter and was blown away how good it was. I might have to come to Austin more often. Real deal... More

You can still enjoy great BBQ on a diet here. The always have fresh broccoli salad, fresh fruit (like watermelon), and a pico/black bean mix. And when you're being naughty, check out the corn casserole. Among other things. Friendly service always.

I was visiting Austin and wanted to taste Austin BBQ. If this is what it is I wish I could order it from home every night! It was excellent! Great choices, clean place, tender meat. It was awesome!!

Really good BBQ! Nice smoke and really tender. Loved the peach habenero sauce. The regular sauce was OK. The macaroni and cheese is on point! Definitely a place to go.
