    This landmark restaurant feels like a barbecue place should: friendly, a little run down, and full of tradition. Accordingly, we recommend the brisket and the Elgin sausage. [Eater 38 Member]

    SXSW Recommendation from Sietsema- It has long been a favorite of SXSW attendees, and, famously, of Stevie Ray Vaughn. It's your best chance to get ribs, brisket, chicken, and mutton.

    The mutton is fantastic. The sausage isn't anything special (not bad, just not magical). The only drinks there are in a Coke machine.

    As seen on Travel Channel's Feed the Beast, Sam's Barbecue has affordable plates & huge portions! Plus, it’s literally the only place in Austin to get barbeque late at night.

    Reasonable prices for tender meats: Brisket, mutton, and sausage. Make sure to mix the sriracha with the sauce to get an extra kick.
