I still have to write more about my trip to Austin, Texas, but as mentioned in my overview: this city as it is currently run seems to be a mecca for addicts, not tourists.
But the one amazing discovery that still finds us thinking about Austin, even a year after our visit, was our stop off at Terry Black’s Barbeque. Apparently, there are two locations: one in Austin and one in Dallas, so if your travels take you to either city, be sure to make a lunch or dinner stop at Black’s BBQ.
On the hot August day when we visited, there was a long line to get in, but it moved fairly briskly – and was definitely worth the wait.
In the 100+ heat, they were also smart to sell cold beverages for those waiting in line.
They had all the classics and traditional sides – but the brisket was amazing. As you can see from the sign above “Brisket is King.”
We can only agree with this claim.
Comfortable, casual self-serve dining inside. And cool, after the brutal summer heat.
We ate a lot of BBQ during our Texas visit, but Black’s BBQ was definitely our favorite.
We even found a BBQ place in Rome, where the brisket isn’t bad. But definitely not the same as what we ate in Austin…
