Austin is home to many delicious barbecue restaurants, and the La Barbecue food truck is one that can't be missed. The meat is tasty, and the food truck park atmosphere is friendly and fun.

The brisket at this famous barbecue joint is definitely worth the wait!

Popular West Campus food truck, Slab BBQ, just opened a grown up brick and mortar spot in North Austin. Don’t fret if you’re a fan of the mobile version, it’s staying open. Placing the focus on sandwiches gives Slab BBQ a great niche spot in Austin’s expanding BBQ scene.

If you’re a BBQ lover in Austin, you know there is no shortage of delicious places to enjoy. You’ll also know that for some, you have to wait in incredibly long lines just to get your food! The good news is Lamberts takes reservations and has plenty of seating both inside and out.

For dinner, we started off with the crispy wild boar ribs and deep fried boudin fritters.  Both were a great way to kick off the feast of BBQ that awaited us. The BBQ menu is split out by “Oak Smoked” and “Oak Grilled”.  If you’re looking to have true BBQ, stick with the Oak Smoked menu. We decided to choose a couple of their most popular items, one smoked and one grilled, including the Whole Black Angus Short Rib and the Mustard and Brown Sugar Crusted Niman Ranch Ribeye.

Lamberts is a great place to bring colleagues who are in town for business or a big group of friends to share the many family style sides available.  Lamberts Baked Mac and 3 Cheeses, Brussels Sprouts with Lamberts Bacon and Brown Butter, and Fried Okra with Spicy Remoulade were all crowd favorites. On many nights you will also find live music in their lounge upstairs.

If you leave room for dessert, you’ll enjoy their selection of sweets.  On the night we went, we tried their light and smooth cheesecake special.

Lamberts is one of many BBQ options that are available in Austin.  If you’re looking for upscale BBQ to enjoy outside with friends and family, Lamberts is the place to go this fall during the best weather of the year.
