Moistest Lemon Cake

Lewis' Bar-B-Q

Specializing in some of Austin's best "Hot!" Elgin Sausage (among other open-pit delights) for about 15 years, this hot pink Eastside landmark at the corner of Harvey & MLK is a gathering place for lunch loungers and supper savorers alike. It might not occur to most barbecue-nuts to indulge in a fresh dessert at a casual to-go joint like this. May we suggest the lemon cake? Simple, unadorned, pre-sliced and arranged in neat little baggies right next to the take-out window, its tangy, melt-in-your-mouth goodness has become one of our favorites. Go ahead. Try it. We bet you'll like it, too.
