My friends and I came here over the weekend of Formula One. Everyone thought very highly of this place; the food was great and had hefty portions with it, the atmosphere was unique, and the staff was very friendly. If we were ever back in Austin, I could see everyone want to come here again.

We were staying at the Hilton which is right by this restaurant. We were a party of four and everything we ordered was excellent. The sampler appetizer was really great--especially the bacon wrapped jalapeño chicken. They also have a full bar and a good selection of beers. Serving staff friendly and efficient.

Truth be told, we came here because of the food and the bodice/skort clad waitresses but apparently BD's is working to promote a more family friendly image. The staff were in jeans and t-shirts. I was surprised, a little disappointed, but enjoyed it all the same. Food was great and service was excellent even if they were dressed. Don't get... More

Food has always been excellent, as is the service. Been eating here for past 6 years. Brisket, chicken, pork, turkey, have tried them all. All are delicious!

We stopped here for lunch and I'm glad we did. The BBQ is delicious. The sides ( we tried 4 of them) are equally as good. Attentive service was also appreciated.

I went to Bone Daddy's after a 5 hour drive. I was greeted by a several hostess and was promptly seated. Alisha was my server and she was great. She was friendly, helpful, and professional. I had the cheeseburger. It was large and very good. I have had their barbecue on other occasions and it is delicious as well.

While being in Texas for work, I just had to try numerous bbq's. The name alone... Bone Daddy's made me curious. Walking in we were all greeted like we were the only people there. We were immediately seated and asked what we want to drink. Before we could even pick up the menus we were asked if you wanted to... More

Went to B.D.'s for a business happy hour with BBQ sandwiches. Beer is cold, food is consistently good, and service is very good as expected. The staff is not hard on the eyes so it's a good spot for the guys after work and the gals who are o.k. with a flirtatious staff.
