Best BBQ Austin

The best BBQ Austin has to offer is obviously a subjective question – but we think we have the answer at Pok-e-Jo’s. There are many Austin BBQ restaurants that get a lot of press, deserved or otherwise. Basically, let ‘em have the press. People who are in-the-know already know that Pok-e-Jo’s is a not-so-hidden gem, with 5 BBQ restaurants in Austin, each serving the best BBQ Austin can find at a great price in convenient locations.

The best BBQ obviously starts with the meat. Sorry vegetarians, this section of the article is not for you. Our BBQ menu starts with beef brisket, every BBQ restaurant’s guiding force. Just looking at the smoke ring on our brisket tells the story. Perfectly seasoned, not too saucy, smoked to a nirvana of BBQ goodness. Also on our meat-n-great list is our homemade sausage, coming in the spicy or not-so-spicy variety. The sausage is a true gem at Pok-e-Jo’s, one often not given enough credit. Next on the list is our spicy Texas pulled pork. Eat it in a pile or pile it on a bun for an amazing BBQ sandwich. Then comes the smoked chicken, smoked turkey breast, and pork ribs like you’ve never had. Our dry rub is a little different than most, making our ribs truly unique.

For a quick BBQ and carb fix, try the Super Spud, a baked potato filled with a ¼ pound of meat and all the fixin’s.

Speaking of fixin’s, Pok-e-Jo’s fixin’s bar is the best in the business. Believe it or not, pico de gallo and sweet pickles are the perfect topping on smoked brisket.

The best BBQ Austin hot-spots have got nothing on Pok-e-Jo’s when it comes to the sides. It’s almost as if the great BBQ meats at Pok-e-Jo’s are just an excuse to order some jalapeno corn bread casserole…and baked potato casserole…and green bean casserole. This is good ‘ole southern cooking – pinto beans, mac’n cheese, and fried okra cooked to order, so it’s always hot and always fresh.

Top that BBQ feast off with peach or cherry cobbler or some banana pudding.
