Stubb's BBQ in Austin, the namesake of the late Lubbock legend, C.B. Stubblefield (1931-1995), is one of the great landmarks of Austin. Famous for both its barbecue as well as its live music, Stubb's is a true Texas treasure.

One of the coolest places in Austin to eat barbecue, although not the cheapest, Stubb's BBQ also produces some of the best tasting barbecue. The menu includes: beef brisket, chicken, pork loin, pork ribs, turkey breast, sausage, and baby back ribs on Fridays and Saturdays only. Additionally, there's a wide variety of BBQ sandwiches and even a 3 Veggie Plate.
Bottles of Stubb's Barbecue Sauce are available at most major supermarkets (check out this store locator.) In fact, there's a complete line of sauces, rubs, marinades, wing sauces, and liquid smokes available for purchase at the restaurant itself, or by ordering online through the secondary site, stubbsbbq.com. You can also mail order a wide selection of smoked meats through that site.
Don't forget the sides. Stubb's also provides a extensive collection of sides: potato salad, cole slaw, pinto beans, fries, serrano cheese spinach, collard greens, fried okra, mashed yams, mashed potatoes, onion rings (described as "The Best Onion Rings in Texas" - and they might be right), and the surprisingly popular mac and cheese.
