  • Don't waste your time and come here without a reservation...
  • Besides the AWESOME bbq. Try the mac&cheese. Best EVER
  • We couldnt pick just one BBQ favorite, so this place shares the title with Stubs. Head here if you have a little more change in your pocket.
  • Great BBQ spot with awesome local live music. I found these guys on my new Supper app:
  • At Lamberts they break from Texas tradition, serving up Texas barbeque thats a combination of beef and pork and they use a both wood and gas to smoke it.
  • Fragrant barbecue smoke and soulful blues waft over the roof of this 19th-century brick edifice. It's noisy. It's fun. And that's just the way the crowd likes it. The fried pies are not to be missed.
  • The most decadent brunch buffet with their "upscale" barbecue options, made-to-order steak benedicts and enough pastries and sides to fill in any empty spots on your plate.
  • Best briscuit in town. Live music upstairs.
  • Reader tip: Lambert's Country Style Pork Ribs are delicious.
  • The wild boar ribs are like the ultimate expression of a buffalo wing. They are transcendant.
  • Crispy Wild Boar Ribs. Plenty to share, or just eat them all yourself.

  • Wild boar ribs are out of this world!
  • Want to grab a bite and watch live music at the same time? The upstairs is not only a bar, they also serve food! Chow down on some bbq and sip on delicious cocktails while listening to live acts.
  • Get fried green tomatoes, shrimp & grits & spicy deviled eggs! Fried oysters = ridiculous, too. Great cocktails.
  • This venue has an intimate upstairs stage and really cool bartenders. Check out their SXSW shows at!
  • Happy Hour treats (from 5-7): Spicy Deviled Eggs, Roasted Green Chili Queso, Crispy Wild Boar Ribs, Fried Jumbo Shrimp, Achiote Seared Chickpeas, Charcuteries and Cheeses, Broiled Oysters.
  • If you want some incredible oak-smoked pulled pork, then this is your place, says Regan Parks of the Formation of Me blog. With a signature cocktail and a dessert and youll be in BBQ heaven.
