Stiles Switch BBQ & Brew

Named for an old railroad station, this Austin original helped rehab an old North Lamar shopping center, Violet Crown. Pitmaster Lance Kirkpatrick is all about that meat, but the craft beer, uber-cheesy mac and cheese, lemon-vinaigrette slaw, and home-style peach cobbler will make you feel better than McConaughey at the Moontower.
