Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

at the helm, you know this Central Texas-style barbecue joint will be good. Located inside the Quickie Pickie (a big upgrade from former food truck park digs) with indoor and outdoor seating, La Barbecue serves up brisket, pork ribs, and house-made sausage. Sandwiches are tasty too, both straightforward options and over-the-top ones like La Frito Loco (pulled pork, chopped beef, chipotle slaw, fritos, cheese, and jalapeños).

As the photo shows, this is barbecue - hold the nonsense. Don't be daunted by the line - there's FREE BEER! It's true. If you're willing to wait on line long enough (it's not as long as it might look), not only will you be greeted with perhaps the best BBQ you'll ever taste, but the owner might even hand you a free can of beer from his cooler near the end of the line. It's worth going earlier in the day because certain items may be sold out. If you're into brisket, this is your spot. I decided to have an order of it along with pulled pork and what was presented to me as "the best sausage in Austin." I might hesitate to say that, but the brisket and pulled pork were every bit of amazing. I'm salivating at the thought of having that tray in front of me again!
