Check out Stiles Switch BBQ on N Lamar Blvd--it has some of the city's greatest barbecue and it's totally kicked back. Great place for a meal and a beer. You'll see families, locals. There are a couple of even more famous places downtown, but there are huge lines and big hype. A friend who lives there sent me this place and on the way home when I was carrying some leftovers through the airport checkpoint the TSA folks chuckled and asked the Yankee where he got his BBQ. When I said "Stiles Switch" they were like "you did good."

Yes I've been to that capital building..it is awesome...I have a picture of me with the Crocket portrait as well.

I recommend going to San Antonio which is about an hour away. There visit the Alamo, the River Walk and the bridge where a certain time of day thousands of bats come flying out from under the bridge.

My brother says Stiles switch is the best in Austin 

We ended going to Blacks Barbecue for whatever reason…maybe cuz it was within scooter distance.

It was very good barbecue!!  Each couple averaged about $80 on all kinds of barbecue from brisket to smoked sausage to pulled pork etc. 

also was cool to meet the owners son Garrett. He said his great grandfather started Blacks and they have 4 stores. He is the lil kid in the photo in the background and the old feller was his grandfather.
