Stiles Switch BBQ & Brew

$$$$(512) 380-9199
Hours:SATURDAY11:00AM to 10:00PM

When people visit from out of town in the middle of the summer, we take them to Stiles Switch, because they offer a couple of things: beer on tap and an indoor air conditioned space (there’s also a patio). We also take people here because the traditional Central Texas barbecue is just always consistently solid, with fantastic brisket, gigantic peppery beef ribs, chunky pulled pork, and sausages with a good snap. We’re also big fans of their smoked chicken wings and their corn casserole. There can be a bit of a wait during weekend lunch and prime dinner hours, but the line moves fast, so you won’t have to worry about a trip here turning into a multi-hour event. There’s a second location of Stiles Switch in Cedar Park, as well as their sister restaurant, The Switch BBQ, out in far west Austin.
