It’s almost impossible to mention barbecue in Austin without La Barbecue’s name coming into the mix. That’s because they’ve been at it since 2011 (with a family history that goes back way, way longer), amassing a large, dedicated following in that time. The seasoning here leans heavy on the pepper—a make or break for some people—in both the barbecue and some of the sides. But once you make it through the inevitable line, you’d be hard pressed to find a more beautiful piece of brisket.
