If Texas is the Barbecue state in the United States, Austin, because of its trendy side, doesn’t really have a lot of restaurants dedicated to this southern American cuisine.
As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed:
The concept is quite simple: smoked and barbecued meats, often large pieces, and served with generosity.
The setting is very nice, with brick walls in a historic district of Austin. The room is quite large, with a first floor and an upper floor, as well as a patio for the beautiful spring and summer evenings.
Be warned, the menu is different for lunch and for dinner and I was fooled. For dinner, the mains are 30$++ minimum.
The meal and the dishes
For this dinner, we will skip the appetizers and order our dishes directly.
My wife will order the assortment of meats, which will be very average.
The baby back ribs that I ordered were excellent, as well as the mashed potatoes that we shared.
For dessert, the vanilla ice cream was good but the banana pudding was disgusting.
The service was really not good, and my tipping etiquette was affected.
The atmosphere is really nice, with country music and a nice decoration.
A disappointing experience. If I understand the fact that efforts are made on the side dishes, the plate content and the service are sub-par.
