    Stubbs: BBQ

    by apbeaches Written Apr 26, 2014

    Fast friendly & attentive service. Delicious bbq, meat fell off the bone. Pecan pie was very impressive too. Bought lots of rubs and sauces to bring home.
    People all around us were eating the $20 all you can eat BBQ. The endless piles of meat that came out were incredible.

    Favorite Dish: Ribs, brisket, pecan pie

    Stubbs: Good Barbque

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Texas Barbque. That all I can say. And there's no better barbque than what you find in Texas. Everything is how I would expect it. Not one complain about it. If you want true Texas Barbque this is the place to go. If your lucky you can even catch a show too. Live music plays here most night. On Sunday there's a gospel brunch.

    Favorite Dish: Hard to say, its all good.

    Stubb's: Austin BBQ

    by tee0206 Written Feb 26, 2007

    This place is just really cool. You can listen to live music while enjoying Texan barbecue. The decor is a little rustic and very Texan, with lots of wood. Honestly, there are probably better barbecue restaurants in the area, but Stubb's isn't too bad. You can't beat the great music scene at this place. The food isn't bad, though. I just enjoy the atmosphere, especially when a band is playing.

    Favorite Dish: I like the fried green tomatoes. The meat is good, too, of course. I'm a fan of beef brisket.

    Stubb's: An Austin Barbecue Tradition

    by Stephen-KarenConn Updated Feb 12, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Love + Music + BBQ = Stubbs

    Mark (ATXtraveler) and I took a break from our day of touring Austin to have lunch at Stubbs - an Austin tradition. The place is very laid back and is locally famous for its outstanding Texas barbecue. It was crowded on the day we were there, as I imagine it is most of the time.

    Stubbs isn't too impressive from the outside, but it does have a lot of character. Inside the place was bustling and the food very robust and tasty, which keeps folks coming back for more.

    I'd like to return to Stubbs sometime in the evening when they have live music - every night. On Sunday they feature a Gospel Brunch with Holy Rock-n-Rollin'.

    Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the Bar-B-Q sandwich - some of the best to be found in all of Texas.

    Stubb's: A Great BBQ Spot in Downtown Austin

    by yoyosh Written Jan 3, 2007

    The first restaurant we hit in Austin was Stubbs (you'll recognize Stubb's face as his BBQ sauce, etc is sold in every grocery store in America). Its a great spot thats very walkable from most downtown Austin hotels. It's a little dark, and definately gives the vibe of a "down home" southern establishment. The portions are quite large, we had a lot of leftovers. The sides are awesome, definately check out the spinach-cheese thing.

    The brisket I tried was a little dry for my liking, but the BBQ chicken was some of the best I've ever had. The wait staff was friendly even though they were super busy.

    In my opinion Salt Lick has better BBQ, but Stubb's has them beat on a few things. Stubb's is an easy to get to location, has amazing sides, and HAS A LIQUOR LISCENCE!!

    Favorite Dish: BBQ Chicken. You can tell it's slow cooked. Very smokey tasting and just plain fantastic.

    All of the sides we ordered were great as well.

    STUBB'S BBQ. This is THE best...

    by SinKitty Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    STUBB'S BBQ. This is THE best BBQ in Texas. I miss Stubbs the most.
    Stubbs is a restaurant, a bar, and a live music venue all put together. The atmosphere there is very laid back and casual. They have a huge outdoor area where the bigger touring acts play, and you can occasionally see Mrs. Stubblefield selling sausage wraps. Mrs. Stubblefield is the widow of the late Mr. Stubblefield (Stubb's).

    Favorite Dish: Chopped Beef sandwich, fries, and the yams which are heavily sweetened with brown sugar.

    Stubb's offers great live music outside as well as quieter tables inside. The most impressive part of our evening was receiving the bill at the end of dinner. Our huge meals, plus an obscene amount of alcohol, ended up being less than $20 a head. Even with our group of 30, the restaurant could not have been more helpful.

    Favorite Dish: Everything is great; the fried okra is a must for those of you not familiar with this Texas side dish.
