La Barbecue.


This past weekend, my boyfriend and I ventured back to Austin, Texas – home to the University of Texas. Hook ’em horns!

Of course, we had to get some BBQ from La Barbecue. Our wait time in line was about an hour and a half. However, we got there around 11:30 am, so there was already a long line. I suggest going before they open so the wait is short and you have a better chance of getting everything you want (the beef ribs were gone by the time we got to the front).

We usually order a little bit of everything:

  • 1 lb of pork ribs (4 ribs)
  • 1/2 lb of brisket
  • 1/2 lb of pulled pork
  • 1 link of chipotle sausage
  • 1 serving of potato salad, beans, and cole slaw
  • A couple slices of bread

The cook was even let us try some of their house-made pickles.

I’m no BBQ connoisseur, but I highly suggest the pork ribs. They were so moist and the meat just slid off the bone. You should also try their beans and pickles! Adding some sides definitely balance out all the meat you will be grubbing on. You also don’t even need that bottle of sauce they provide at each table – the flavor is already packed in the meat.

We met some cool people from Ole Miss, had some free beer, and ate some delicious BBQ! Worth every minute in line!

What are your favorite places to eat in Austin?
