I have been going to Bert's for 27 yrs when I am in Austin and it is as good as it has always been. The brisket, sauce and slaw are all excellent. Jay and the staff are very friendly and accommodating as well. I highly recommend.

This was my first time trying Bert's. I ordered a brisket plate with beans and potato salad. The brisket was a bit dry with a chewy bark. The barbecue sauce helped moisten it up and the sauce was okay but pretty thin and runny. The beans were cooked perfectly, but they were plain pinto beans. There was no onion, peppers,... More

I stopped in to Bert's while I was in town for a doctors appointment. It is a storefront barbecue place in a strip mall. Missing are the smoky smells as you walk into the building. The menu is typical Texas barbecue. I had a brisket and sausage plate with an iced tea, and it was $11. The brisket and sausage... More

Stopped in to grab some BBQ on the go. Fast service and very accommodating. Slice beef was trimmed per request and size of side order was adjusted with correct pricing. Chopped beef had nice chunks of chopped beef. The sauce was not too spicy. Coleslaw was not too liquefied and average flavor, not too tart or sweet.

The ribs are heavenly, as is the brisket and the incredibly healthy-looking turkey. Good spud salad and beans, and even the cole slaw is great. Quick service, central location, and very friendly staff. This BBQ is as good as it gets. Really.

The food is good and service is very friendly. Try the Frito Pie - doesn't sound very good but you will not be disappointed.

I'm not sure I have to say more. I stopped one night to grab some dinner for me and my kids. This was such a mistake, but I am new to the neigborhood and thought it might be a nice treat. Boy was I wrong. Dry brisket, watery sauce, salty, salty, salty rub. If you think this is great BBQ,... More

There are times in life when one is overcome by the irresistible urge to consume a large Frito Pie with added onions, sausage and cheese. Well... those moments happen in MY life, anyway. When it does: only Bert's has the correct antidote.

Located in a small strip mall in western Austin, this family operation has been open for 40 years. Longevity is not a guarantee of satisfaction, I found. I tried the BBQ brisket and the white meat chicken, both were unremarkable, more like ho-hum. Neither meat had much smoke flavor; the chicken was borderline tough. An extra on my plate was... More

Ok this place was great honestly I had brisket/sausage .. wished I had just had a plate full of brisket. The sauce was meh I honestly was pushing the sauce off my brisket because the brisket standalone taste was that good. Coleslaw was good. Beans were very good more plainish? not the sweet type of beans. Would definitely go again... More
