    The BEST bbq i've had in a long time! Serrano cheese spinach and mashed sweet taters are to die for! Meat is MELT IN YOUR MOUTH! MUST STOP! Amazing and not badly priced! We will be back!

    No doubt this is one of the better locations for BBQ. Restaurant style that is. The food is well prepared, well presented, cooked perfectly and very flavourful with quite good portions

    Mac & cheese, sausage, pulled pork, onion rings, sweet potato fries are all awesome! Ribs had a little too much fat on them for my taste, but I'm not much of a meat eater. Overall, awesome dinner!

    Great place to see a concert. The outdoor stage does get hot during the summer, and there is usually a line to get in, but it is a solid venue to see concerts. You can get nice and close

    Awesome place. Great food. The pulled pork sandwich is delicious. In addition to the restaurant, they also host live bands. The have both an indoor small venue and a larger outdoor venue.

    Besides hosting killer bands on both stages and having excellent bbq, Stubbs is one of the best places to see live music in Austin. Give back to musicians by purchasing Texas Music Water at Stubbs!

    The pork short ribs are great and the brisket was nice a tender. Mac 'n cheese is done right, fried okra is a good bet. Drown it all in Stubb's BBQ sauce and clean things up with a sweet tea.

    One of Austin's premier rhythm-and-grub joints, and it has damn good barbecue. The Gospel Brunch on Sundays has become so popular that reservations are a must for both seatings.

    If you are early to a show at the indoor venue, consider camping the set of stairs on the right hand side as you face the stage. It offers a place to sit while waiting and an elevated vantage later.

    Convert to the church of Stubb's gospel brunch Sundays. Load your plate up at the outdoor buffet. [$19] Be sure to make a reservation by 4pm Saturday (they have 11am or 1pm Sunday seatings). Amen.
