Lamberts Downtown Barbecue Review
LAMBERTS DOWNTOWN BARBECUE
401 W SECOND ST, AUSTIN TX 73701
Rockin’ cornbread and all the fixins’. One of the few places that is consistently awesome. Complimentary cornbread muffins set the stage for what’s to come — scrumptious offerings on an evolving menu, putting a fine culinary spin on the staple that is Texas BBQ. We recently enjoyed chopped brisket lightly tossed in a smoky sauce, with freshly prepared coleslaw and some of the best baked beans ever! BONUS: the coleslaw was not laden with mayonnaise! I wish I had saved room for the Southern pecan pie that was glistening with a Karo syrup glaze — next time, which I hope will be soon. Check out the Sunday brunch as well (reservations needed), when you are able to sample some off-menu treats. A top 5 in Austin for sure.
