I just found this message board, what a great idea! Ok, I just moved to Austin and I wanted to know what are the best bbq and pizza spots around here. I don't mind driving 30 minutes or so for great food.
The only bbq I have tried has been Poke-E-Jo's. I have been there a couple of times, I know this can't be the best bbq in Austin. The last time I went the brisket wasn't very good. How does Poke-E-Jo's rank in terms of bbq in Austin. I also tried County Line but I only had one sandwich, so I haven't had the chance to taste all of what it has to offer. I have heard The Salt Lick is pretty good. What about Bert's, the one located right off Far West?
For pizza I tried Mangia's, it was good but it wasn't the best I have had. Do you guys like it? The crust was great, but something about the cheese really turned me off. It didn't taste fresh and was too chewy. Any suggestions?
Feel free to mention any other Austin restaurants that you love and think I should try. I pretty much like anything, but I'm not into Asian food.
BTW, has anybody tried the Lucky Dog? They have Chicago style hot dogs.
