Super cool "old-west" decor but very traditional Texas Style barbecue meats make this a UT and Austin favorite. Evan LeRoy, a former pitmaster at Hill Country Barbecue in Manhattan, is the man behind the meats but adds a modern chef flair with delights like smoked beets with chèvre and balsamic, sides of house-made pickles, or smoked and grilled veggies.
