Lamberts Downtown Barbecue

401 W. 2nd St.
Austin , TX , United States http://lambertsaustin.com/
(512) 494-1500

The postmodern barbecue joint, housed among mid-construction condo buildings in an airy, historic brick warehouse, delivers outstanding barbecued chicken, moist and with a clove-y smoke character. Chase your bbq with a hoppy Lost Gold IPA from Blanco, Texas. The brisket is textbook: super-wet and judiciously smoked.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

In business for a half-century, this cantina has an appealingly raucous, authentic feel, from its brightly colored Talavera tiles and blaring jukebox to its dependably tasty Mexican comfort food.

We loved: Stewed pork shank.

Insider tip: La Mascota offers abundant quantities of some of the city's best (tapas), like meatballs in chile sauce, for free with drinks during lunch hour (2-5 p.m.).
