As most write, Vic's BBQ is top choice. I had the turkey and wow - mouthwatering. A colleague had the brisket with a similar result. The service is a bit brash and substandard but you cannot get better BBQ in my opinion. And the price...More

Just a small local place with outstanding BBQ. The staff is friendly and courteous, the facility clean yet simple and the food is delicious. The prices are low. I had a tremendous brisket lunch for under $15. The home style sides included baked beans, green...More

Vic's is great for breakfast tacos or fabulous barbeque. Their ribs rock as well as their brisket. We sometimes go there twice in a day from the office. I love the staff - a little surly sometimes but always ready to laugh!

I'm not sure what a "dyed in the wool" Texan would think of Vic's but I thought it was pretty good. I ordered brisket, sausage, with green beans and coleslaw on my way of town( it's within 5-10miles of the airport). I didn't have time...More

We visited Austin and on our way out, we wanted to try some BBQ. I asked a gentleman at a convenience store on Congress Ave., and he recommended Don's BBQ as one of the best places in town. We tried looking for it, but kind...More

My husband and I hadn't gone to Vic's BBQ for a long time. The pork ribs were mostly bone with little meat, the brisket was very tough and sausage wasn't any better. I wanted extra meat with my meal. When we checked our receipt, the...More

I had the rib plate and my husband had the brisket. We both liked the meat but the two sides potato salad and beans were not good. The atmosphere of the place was a little on the blah side. I would not eat there.
