Recently named best barbecue joint in America by Bon Appetit magazine, you'll have to cue up early *(by 10:30 a.m.) to enjoy lunch at this hotspot. It's worth it to enjoy the coveted cue smoked with post oak wood. It's located just off I-35, but don't think you can just blow by for some quick take-out. The line snakes around the building and parking lot and they generally run out barbecue by 1:15 p.m. My teens didn't mind the wait through - they spent more time waiting to get an In n Out Burger when it opened in Dallas - and can boast when they check in here on facebook.
Collective groans will likely be the response when you suggest going on a boat tour of Austin's famous bats on the South Congress Street Bridge, but once on board, the trip offers great views of the city and Town Lake. Just be sure to shield your head when going under the colony of bats under the bridge!
