Black’s Barbecue Austin


I have been wanting to try this location of Black’s Barbecue for a long time.  It is located near the University of Texas campus on Guadalupe and 31st and 1/2 Street.  It is a small restaurant and today there was a smoker outside and a short line of people on the inside.  The brisket was perfect, just as you would expect from a Black’s site.  You line up, order your sides, have them slice and weigh your meat selections, pay for everything, get your drinks, then find a table inside or on the outside patio.  I highly recommend it if you find yourself in the area.

Welcome to Austin! We need another BBQ Joint. 🙂

The good news is that this version of Black’s Barbecue is very similar to the one in Lockhart. I walked in the door and picked my sides – beans and creamed corn. I then turned the corner and watched as my meats were cut and weighed – moist brisket, turkey breast, and a small jalapeño and cheese sausage. Then pay, grab your drink, and enjoy. You can choose to sit inside or on the patio outside, where I am composing this post at the moment. What a beautiful day in Austin it is.
