Hot Cast Iron BBQ Grill


BBQ restaurants in Austin have some of the best BBQ available in the state! To celebrate Austin and its amazing BBQ restaurants, South Point Hyundai has put together a guide for five great locations in the Kyle area. We wish we could put every restaurant on this list, but here is just a sample of the best BBQ in Austin, Texas.

Five Great BBQ Restaurants in Austin, Texas

  • Terry Black’s Barbecue: At this brothers-owned restaurant, meat is served by the pound with years of family knowledge. Looking for something a teensy bit lighter? Try a chopped beef sandwich (and maybe some peach cobbler for dessert). Frozen meats are also available to take home on a first come, first served basis with a handy thawing and reheating guide.
  • Distant Relatives: Distant Relatives specializes in BBQ inspired by African-American culinary history, making use of hardwood smoke and Pecan. It also offers delicious snacks like spicy smoked peanuts and berbere spiced carrot pickles. Distant Relatives is open for lunch and dinner, meaning it’s okay for you to choose that beef brisket with smoked mustard butter sauce at 12 p.m. or to swing by after work.
  • Franklin Barbecue: The lines are long, but the BBQ is worth it. Franklin Barbecue is an Austin staple offering options ranging from ribs, to brisket, to even jalapeno cheddar sausage. Enjoy some of the best BBQ in Austin, Texas indoors or outdoors from people who know exactly how to make your mouth water. It isn’t uncommon for Franklin Barbecue to sell out by 3 p.m., so it’s best to arrive before they open at 11 a.m. to get this local favorite.
  • Sam’s Bar-B-Que: Looking for something nostalgic with an old Austin feel? Sam’s is the place for you. This local BBQ joint opened in the 1950s and offers classic options such as ribs, mutton, chicken, potato salad, and baked beans. Since founder Sam Campbells’s death, his family continues to run the business with the same home-style feel.
  • Kerlin BBQ: Kolaches don’t have to be just a dessert. How about brisket stuffed kolaches? Kerlin BBQ offers this unique take on BBQ at their Kerlaches food truck from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. – or when they run out of the exclusive pastry! Kerlin also offers classic options like pork belly burnt ends, prime Angus brisket, and old good mac and cheese.

No matter which restaurant you visit, we know you won’t be let down. Each location offers satisfying meals during your next drive in the Kyle area. Treat yourself to the best BBQ in Austin, Texas!
