Blue Ribbon Barbecue

Owner Bobby Cavo has barbecue deep in his DNA. His mom, Mopsie, still provides the meat through her catering kitchen, all of it kissed by heritage post oak smoke.
120 E. Fourth, 512/369-3119

House Park Bar-B-Que

No-frills, award-winning, mesquite-smoked brisket, pork loin, sausage, chicken, and sandwiches have been served from the same smoke-redolent shack since 1943. Lunch only.
900 W. 12th, 512/472-9621

Iron Works BBQ

The Works retains its neighborly charm with modest prices and self-serve beer on ice in tin coolers. You can have the barbecue shipped to your house later if you'd like.
100 Red River, 512/478-4855
