Happy Birthday to all the leap year babies out there and a special happy birthday to our little brother who is turning ofiicially 4 today!
Stubb’s Bar-B-Q has great bbq and also is a venue for live music and gospel brunches. Instead of traveling outside of Downtown Austin for bbq, which was just our own laziness, but s a definite must do for our next visit, we checked out Stubb’s. The antlers, Texas cattle landscapes and music posters were a nice touch to put us in a Southern bbq eating kind of mood.
There is a specific process to ordering and eating at Stubb’s. Get in line, order at the bar area and then chose a seat in the outdoor patio area or main dining room. The choices of Stubb’s meat include beef brisket, smoked chicken, pork spare ribs, sausage, turkey breast, chopped beef and pulled pork.
The sides include- fried okra, cole slaw, pinto beans, fries, sweet potato fries, potato salad, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and serrano cheese spinach. We asked what were the best and our cashier suggested the serrano pepper cheese spinach and potato salad. We had the option to substitute one side for onion rings or small salad for just $1.00 and add homemade cornbread for $.75.
My Bar-B-Q Plate had pork ribs, sweet potato fries and serrano cheese spinach and a slice of white bread for $11.95. The fries were perfectly crispy on the outside and tender yet slightly sweet on the inside. I thought the pork ribs were good, tender, but the serrano cheese spinach was phenomenal. The flavor of the spinach, pepper and cheese were mouthwatering. I wish I only ordered serrano cheese spinach and is the best spinach we have ever eaten. I would go back to Stubb’s specifically for this side.
The Minor Plate had smoked chicken and beef brisket with serrano cheese spinach and potato salad for $13.95. The spinach and potato salad were suggestions by the staff and the potato salad had a nice flavor.
Both the smoked chicken and brisket were amazing. The beef brisket was super tender, flavorful, juicy and was positively delectable. The smoked chicken had a nice smokey flavor and we gobbled the meats right up. We would be back for to eat the brisket time and time again.
The banana pudding is exactly as claimed, like grandma would make ($3.95). Slices of banana, a few whole Nilla wafers and smooth homemade banana pudding. We still prefer the 1886 Cafe & Bakery’s banana cream cake. This is granny’s version, simple and an old standard.
