Flatpoint is another excellent pop-up that specializes in simple, well-executed Central Texas BBQ. People line up for chef Danny Gordon’s brisket, pulled pork, and spare ribs, but don’t skip out on their sausage that range from serrano-cheddar to Polish kielbasa. However, the real secret of Flatpoint is their pastrami - a specialty that only appears on their menu about once a month. So follow them on Instagram and track it down, because this is some of the best we’ve ever eaten. You can buy it by the pound, but we prefer to get the “Pastrami Mami” sandwich, which comes with thick slabs of their salty, smoky pastrami topped with dill pickles and sweet apple slaw on seeded rye bread. It’s a perfect sandwich and one that should be on everyone’s priority list.
