Stubb’s BBQ is a one-of-a-kind place. It isn’t the best barbecue ever—really it isn’t even the best barbecue in Austin. But it’s a Texas legend that is worth a visit at least once, and the food certainly doesn’t disappoint.

The roots of this Texas landmark are in the remote west Texas town of Lubbock. Travelers from all around would make their way to Stubb’s to savor the magnificent mix of slow cooked meats and fantastic live music. Besides, any place that calls itself ground zero for names like Joe Ely and Stevie Ray Vaughn is certainly worth a look.

Perfectly smoked brisket. Grilled spicy pork sausages. Generous portions of mac and cheese and greens. White bread, Copious amounts of sauce. And it’s time for a well-earned nap.
