  • Guy visits this barbecue joint that uses only green mesquite wood or young wood for cooking. The owner swears by it for giving the meat the best and most consistent flavor.
  • Order the baked potato with chopped beef and feel like a fatty.
  • Great fried Okra
  • Update: baby cobbler now made with actual children. A delicacy!
  • Chopped beef sandwich here always hits the spot.
  • 2 Meat Plate, cold Shiner Bock & the Peach Cobler!
  • Baby cobbler is not actually made with real babies.
  • Stop by after catching a show at Auditorium Shores (this year: Cheap Trick, She & Him, and Ozomatli). Don't like meat? Well, heed their slogan: "Horrifying Vegetarians Since 1988."
  • On Triple D, Guy calls the ribs, made with brown sugar, paprika, cayenne, onion and garlic, "awesome." Other faves include brisket, pulled pork and chicken fried steak.
  • Sliced beef chili and cheese fries are a great starter to share. Ask for side or ranch Ribs are better than brisket.
  • If you like BBQ this is an Austin staple. Located just south of downtown. Specials include $8.99 for a three meat plate with two sides on Wednesday's and chicken BBQ plate $6.99 on Thursday's.
