Fodor's Review

From its creekside perch in the shadow of the Austin Convention Center, this spot caters to name-tagged conference attendees, construction workers, and thoroughly starched office workers alike. Dependable house specialties include pepper-crusted smoked pork loin, tender brisket, and Flintstones-size beef ribs (the junior rib plate will satisfy all but the hugest of appetites). Wrought-iron grills, forged here when the building was an ironworks, hang from the rafters. It's

a charming and authentic slice of Texas—maybe not the best barbecue joint within city limits, but definitely in the top five. There's also a decent salad bar.
