There are myriad reasons why Stubb’s is the go-to best venue in town. The 1,800-capacity spot is nestled in the heart of the Red River District, which makes pre- and after-partying a cinch; the outdoor amphitheater features impeccable sound and light displays, plus clear sightlines from almost anywhere on the natural, gradual incline leading up from the stage; and—huge bonus—you can always enjoy barbecue treats like a chopped beef sandwich or jalapeño brisket taco while soaking up world-class concerts. Barbecue + live music FTW.

Good BBQ, great vibe. The staff is so accommodating and friendly. I'd definitely go back, and next time plan to catch live music in their basement venue.
This place always pops up on Best of Austin BBQ lists and I can see why - the food was really good (in my mind not the 'best' I had whilst I was in town, but definitely up there). But I think what locals and tourists all like about this place is it's authentic, friendly, buzzing Austin vibes and the live music scene there. The place was full but we were still seated quickly and our waiter was fantastic, keeping the rounds of drinks coming, along with the food. Also, Jake Gyllenaal was sat downstairs whilst we were there so that was just a bonus!
Was really looking forward to visiting this Austin institution; went with a larger group, and on walking in we were really impressed, it was busy, had a great vibe and the food smelt amazing!We had an amazing evening, the service was on point and typically friendly but the food wasn’t ‘amazing’ it was completely fine and enjoyable, and maybe my expectations were too high but, dare I say it, I’ve had better BBQ in New York!Overall though, was a great night so can’t go too bad on it, definitely worth checking out!
Loved the brisket here—full of flavor and fall-apart-on-your-fork tender. Bonus: We didn't have to wait, and it was the peak of festival season.
