Interstellar BBQ has quickly established itself as one of the best new options for barbecue in Austin. It’s not central, but it’s very much worth the drive up to far northwest Austin (it’s almost in Cedar Park). They serve classic Texas barbecue staples like brisket, pork ribs, and turkey—but they also have pretty unique options like savory peach tea-glazed pork belly burnt ends and tremendous jalapeno popper sausages. Be on the lookout for specials like mole-spiced baby back ribs, pastrami beef ribs, or brisket tacos. Also of note are the vegetarian sides, including the very delicious smoked scalloped potatoes.

Valentina’s Tex Mex BBQ

Valentina’s churns out a beautiful fusion of our city’s greatest cuisines: Tex-Mex and barbecue. It’s absolutely worth the trip to Manchaca.
