Black's BBQ + Wheatsville Coop food bar = perfect take out dinner

sweet100s | Nov 19, 201408:29 PM    

Before getting takeout from the new Black's BBQ on Guadalupe, I realized Wheatsville Coop was just across the street.

From Blacks:
Brisket for dinner that night - moist, flavorful, right amount of char
Turkey for sandwiches this week - moist and not too smoky
Smallest beef rib part left on the cutting block to sample - Wow. Very tender. Not too salty.
raw onions
pickles

From Wheatsville self-service hot food bar:
jalapeno cheddar biscuits, 1/2 of one leftover was still delicious tonight reheated for several minutes at 325, even after being in the fridge several days

From Wheatsville self-service cold food bar
2 types of pasta salads, one with peas that we've enjoyed cold
one with beans that we've reheated

From Wheatsville prepared foods bar with perfectly mounded dishes in the huge bowls:
lemon Parmesean kale salad - totally delicious. Seems like there's something else in there besides lemon and parm... I just wish that anyone who preps kale would remove the woody stems before chopping into small pieces.

Wheatsville's hot foods bar is now open till 9pm. Both the people who work at Wheatsville and their customers are some of the most pleasant and interesting Austinites I encountered while simply grocery shopping.
