    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

    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!

    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!

    We couldn’t pick just one BBQ favorite, so this place shares the title with Lambert’s. Both have great food, but your money will go a little further here.

    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.

    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

    Austin is the live music capital of the US! And Stubb’s is in its hub (on Sixth Street), an endless row of music venues with all types of music. Try the 16-hour smoked ribs!” – Andy Grammer

    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.

    The 2 or three meat option is a lot if food and gives more choices than the all you can eat. Everything is excellent & my favorite is the pork.

    Went for Gospel brunch and wasn't at all disappointed. The food is so rich you feel the fantastic heart attack coming on, and the mimosas are perfectly flavored and fizzy. The music is insanely good!

    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.

    Gospel Brunch: website is unclear. There are 2 seating times, 11 and 1. The Bloody Mary bar and other drinks are not included in the flat price. Good food and fun atmosphere, though!

    There's a great spot under the stairs stage left, a corner of the concrete apron where the mixing board is set up. You're about a ft higher than the crowd. Duck through the narrow space nxt 2 stairs.

    10 years of SXSW & i have only eaten at Stubbs once! Best venue for the larger acts. PLant yourself beside the lone Tree on the right side near the stage. Great vantage point and somewhere to lean!

    Awesome concert venue and it's down the street from some pretty good bars. Drinks were a little pricey but that was to be expected, it had an awesome selection of alcohol though!

    Start off the meal with the fried green tomatoes, which are crisp and firm. But make sure to keep your eye on the prize and order the $17.95 all-you-can-eat family-style BBQ dinner. Read more

    The spicy creamed spinach is INCREDIBLE! I loved the chopped beef. Fried okra is solid. The chicken jalapeno roll ups are a tasty little appetizer :)

    Best show on our last tour (Iamdynamite). Great P.A., friendly staff, nice green room set up, good food, and it's Austin, baby! Danny might be the nicest house sound guy you'll ever meet.

    Live music indoors and out. One of the best bbq place in Austin. Everything you could want. Go and get tickets to one of the shows.

    concert at the indoor stage? aim for the middle or right side of the stage (looking from the audience) unless you want to get smacked by equipment coming down the stairs, off the left of the stage.

    To sneak up front, go to the east bar, look to the right, and you'll see a walkway that’s usually guarded by a worker. No big deal! Just walk by, go around the balcony, and you’ll be up front! – Artur

    The Sunday gospel brunch is worth it. $21/adult, lots of good side options other than the BBQ.

    Discover new music gems on intimate inside stage, or rock out with rockstars at the outdoor ampitheater! Gospel Brunch on Sundays sells out months in advance because it is *The Best.*

    Request a table away from the bar or you will have to hear the hostess scream "JIM PARTY OF THREE YOUR TABLE IS READY. JIM!" It is piercing.

    Get the BBQ and stay for a show! This is a must-see (and taste) spot that can't be topped. The acts they book are always the biggest and best of any venue downtown. Read more

    Other places have equally great BBQ, but this place has great atmosphere. Go for dinner - after dark. The all you can eat plate is pricey ($17+), but go hungry and you will not be disappointed!

    Lives up to the hype, son. Although, don't always fall prey to the unlimited meat option, all you really need is a plate.
