Went for the first time to Stubb's after we couldn't make it in Franklin's. I was pleasantly surprised. The brisket was truly fantastic. The ribs were ok but nothing out of the ordinary. The pulled pork was very good. Overall, it's certainly an option for those looking for a BBQ place in Austin.

Had dinner in April. Arrived around 5:30 on a Tuesday. Plenty of seating. Everyone enjoyed their meals: pulled pork, turkey, ribs and brisket were all very good. Particularly nice mac 'n cheese (and I'm a mac 'n cheese snob). Would love to come back for gospel breakfast. Any place with signed photos of Loretta Lynn and Johnny Cash must have... More

The smell of bbq is intoxicatingly wonderful and gets your attention I know that they offer music and it gets crowded but I went on a Sunday avoiding crowds to enjoy the cobbler. I was wonderfully delicious and I was sorry that I shared it, I should have gotten my own... It was that good, shoot man! A must when... More

I ordered the beef brisket, coleslaw, mac& cheese, and sweet tea (alcohol). My friend ordered the pulled pork, coleslaw, and mashed potatoes. The food was so amazing and the waiter we had was so friendly!! Also our meals were $12 each and we left satisfied! We skipped the buffet which means you don't get seated until closer to 2:30, but...

We stopped in after watching the bats on the Congress Street bridge . At first I was a little hesitant with the party type atmosphere but we were hungry. So glad we stayed the food was delicious and the service was good as well. The BBQ sauce is so much better than the sauce sold in stores.

Love the variety of sauces. The meat has a nicely seasoned smoke flavor. The sides are ok but not great.

Music was not the most exciting but for the modest price - just fine. Quite a small area downstairs where the event is held on Sunday. You must have reservations! Buffet was set up outside without any heating elements under the pans so the food was cold, upside was the sausage gravy was very good. Service was wonderful! Tip: Don't... More

We visited Austin during Christmas break with my son and his girlfriend, hoping to have a taste of authentic Texas BBQ. Not knowing what to expect, Stubb's exceeded what we hoped for. The brisket was juicy with an extraordinary bark, the pulled pork was on the spot and the beer was ice cold, just what you'd expect from a real... More

Stubbs was located a mere block away from our hotel. We had drinks elsewhere and decided the short walk was best. There were three of us and we each picked something different. I was looking forward to trying their BBQ. No wonder they have their sauce everywhere. If it hadn't been for that their meat would be tasteless. Needless to... More

This was our second trip to Stubb's and I think they keep getting better. I had the 3 meat plate with sausage, brisket, and ribs with a side of fantastic Serrano pepper spinach and tasty onion rings. If you don't mind a little spice, the spinach is about the best I've ever had! The ribs and brisket were very flavorful,... More
