This Warehouse District restaurant specializes in a genre they call “fancy barbecue,” so you won’t find paper plates and utensils here. Instead, choose from dishes like oak-smoked Black Angus brisket with brown sugar and coffee rub, pulled pork with house-made pickles and a silver dollar roll and a half local chicken with achiote and lime rub, pickled pepper, charred red onion and white BBQ sauce— plus live music most nights.

You can't seem to eat barbecue in Austin without waiting (all the meat is slow-cooked, after all) and Lambert's is no exception. At least you have the option of drinking at the bar while you wait, or being called once your table is ready. Once you sit down, skip the brisket (it's a bit dry) and stick with the pork, accompanied by your choice of delectable sides.
