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. The new Research Blvd location lets you grab their famous Notorious P.I.G or other barbecue sandwiches while enjoying the comfort of air conditioned temperatures.

Slab BBQ brings together different Southern and Texas flavors in their offerings of sandwiches and wraps. During our visit we tried the Texas Two Step sandwich and a trio of sliders featuring the Notorious P.I.G., the Texas O.G., and El Jefe. The sliders are a great way to get the most meat for your money. These mini sandwiches are slightly larger than half a regular sandwich. They were all equally delicious though the combination of queso and brisket makes El Jefe one of our favorites. While the menu has a great combination of meats and flavors, you can also custom build your own sandwich, wrap, or nachos.

A sampling of sliders is the best way to fill up on smoky meats.

True to its roots, the space is fun and trendy, never taking itself too seriously. Graffiti artwork line the walls and the menus are printed on vinyl records. A mix of standard tables and tall communal ones offer plenty of seating indoors with some patio tables outside as well. There are a few TVs, making it a great option to take in a game with some friends.

Placing the focus on sandwiches gives Slab BBQ a great niche spot in Austin’s expanding BBQ scene. Tonight the restaurant is hosting their grand opening party from 5-10pm with free food and beer.
