Recently, Jason sent me this email:
"Guys, I ate at stubb’s this past Friday and I must say… we need to go there! I was quite impressed w/ what I had. I didn’t think it’d be good...but man was I wrong. Sausage is $! Brisket is average. And pork rib was tasty!!!! I propose a manup trip to the legendary Stubbs BBQ!"
This got me thinking about how we're in Austin and have never made a Man-Up trip to Stubb's Bar-B-Que, which is in downtown Austin. I've been to Stubb's twice. Once was years ago, well before I moved to Austin. The other was after I moved to Austin, but I just ordered a stew. Both visits underwhelmed me, at best. I guess that's why I haven't proposed a Stubb's visit. But, then again, neither has anyone else, until Jason's email.
So, I want to hear your thoughts on Stubb's. How does it stack up in the grand scheme of Texas BBQ? How does it fare against other Austin joints?
