Popped in here on a weekend in Austin. Food was really average, definitely not anywhere near great Texas BBQ. Ribs and brisket were fatty to the extreme. More frustrating was the service - even though the restaurant was only half full it took 15m for a server to arrive, despite us trying to get the attention of the servers. "She's... More

We stopped at Stubbs for a quick lunch while visiting Austin. We decided to sit a the bar as service is usually faster and smoother. We met Layla, and she quickly got us drinks and a food order placed. We struck up a great convo with Layla, and she told us all about Austin, and the spots to hit while... More

Friends got married in Austin and they reserved Stubbs for the morning after party. The venue was cute, nice setting, the food was very good. Never had brisket for breakfast but I gotta tell you it's my new thing. Brisket was tender, great flavor, other bar b que items was just as good. The service was spot on. I would... More

Stopped for lunch with a couple of friends. Ordering was fairly quick and service was good. Food was really solid, I had Brisket of course. Tender and smokey, done just right. Sides were sweet potatoe fries and came out slightly softer than what I like. Overall not bad, slightly pricey.

The food, service, and atmosphere were excellent. Everyone was friendly and helpful, the portions were huge. My trio of meat, ribs, turkey, brisket, lasted for three more meals. The fried green tomatoes were the best I've had. I will go back, and soon.

This was our first Gospel Brunch, and I will now always seek out a gospel brunch when I travel. The food was wonderful southern BBQ, and the Gospel music was wonderful. So uplifting! They had the entire restaurant on our feet, dancing, clapping and singing. We chose the 10:30 seating. When our server came by to ask if we wanted... More

My husband, son and I ate at Stubbs after eating the day before at Salt Lick. My husband and son were comparing meals, as we all had brisket and ribs at both places. The verdict -- Ribs better at Stubbs, Brisket better at Salt Lick, or was it the BBQ sauce? We walked here from our hotel, I'm not sure... More

This was the only Austin barbecue we had in a 2-1/2 day trip to the city. We were looking forward to some good stuff. We thought that this was very average. Not bad, just very average. We both had a brisket sandwich. We were thinking about waiting in line at Franklin's, but that's a lot of time and we were... More

We were a table of 8 and our server was on top of it! I never waited for a drink refill and thankfully our food came out quickly as we were on a tight time schedule. Big portion sizes and a lot of choices!
