La Barbecue

Consider yourself lucky if you have the chance to eat at La Barbecue, especially if you’re there in time to catch their legendary beef ribs. Owned by the granddaughter of the Taylor Texas smoked meat legend, Louie Mueller, La Barbecue - like so many other things in this town - started as a small trailer on South 1st street, and quickly made a name for themselves with their brisket, ribs, and house made sausage.

Today, La Barbecue has an indoor space at the convenience store/restaurant Quickie Pickie. It has indoor seating, air conditioning, and plenty of room, which are all incredible upgrades from the old days of waiting in a long, hot line for your chance at some of Austin’s best barbecue. The brisket and pork ribs here are particularly outstanding, and there’s still a line, but at least it’s more comfortable while you wait. And we saved the best for last: you can skip the line entirely if you pre-order.

Food Rundown

Brisket

So, so, so good. The bark-to-meat ratio is perfect. Go fatty or lean - they’re equally great.

Pulled Pork

Basically perfect. This one is lightly doused in a tangy, vinegary sauce.

Beef Rib

What La Barbecue is most known for. This thing is, in fact, giant - but also ridiculously juicy and flavorful.

Sausage

Sausage is the most underrated barbecue meat. This one is great, with a nice kick to it.
