This is a mainly a "to go" joint to get delicious BBQ but if you want to eat there you can use one of the three picnic tables on the side. The brisket is the best although all their cooking is good. Give it a...More

Very good barbecue in a small town. Dine-in or take out available. I believe their hours are limited though.

Two of the staff at the nearby Attwater National Wildlife Refuge recommended Austin's. We ordered a sliced beef sandwich and beef fajita tacos for lunch. We thought they were both excellent, as the beef was lean, tender & flavorful. We did drive north a few...More
