In my neverending search for kid-friendly dining spots that are also fun for adults, Stubb's Graceland comes out on top. With its gas station and convenience store exterior, you'd never suspect the wonderland that awaits in my new favorite hill country hangout.

You can't miss this fun outdoor hangout on Highway 290

Stubb's has it all - a huge grassy knoll for kids to run around or adults to relax on a blanket, two playgrounds, a music stage, outdoor seating, a bar, and of course great barbecue.

Plenty of space to let kids run around and play

We love to head over late in the afternoon to relax on the lawn with a local beer, like a Thirsty Goat or 512 Porter.  Then once it's acceptable dinner time, we head over to the  picnic tables to snag a (limited) high chair and select from the tasty menu of barbecue choices. Ordering takes place at the Stubb's window for an extra casual experience.

Casual outdoor seating for the whole family

For meat lovers, I recommend the three meat plate that also comes with two sides. We love the brisket, sausage, and pulled pork. As for sides, our favorites are the mashed sweet potatoes and mac and cheese - how could you go wrong? If you're not too hungy, the three meat plate is a great option to share.

Stubb's also offers some fun appetizers for snacking, like the Potato Skins or Brisket (or Pulled Pork) Sliders. What I love so much about the potato skins is they serve as a boat for delicious, melty queso.

Even if you're not worried about entertaining little ones, Stubb's is a great place for adults to hang out. They have TVs for sports, live music on occasion and just an overall laid back vibe that anyone can enjoy. The small convenience store even has a coffee shop, perfect for a mid-week meetup.
