Lambert’s Downtown Barbecue – Austin

Just My Rating and a Few Notes (For Now): 

Lambert's Downtown BBQ in Austin is one of those "fancy BBQ joints" with emphasis on atmosphere. But they absolutely hit the mark with the meat. The brisket is excellent, perfectly rendered fat drips away from the meat.  The ribs are tasty and feature a non-traditional rub which results in a unique and interesting flavor. The stuffed pork loin (with chorizo) was a nice sample as well.

This is a wonderful venue with an excellent menu but it also comes with premium prices. Lambert's is well worth a night out but it doesn't matter how fancy the BBQ is, I'll still eat with my fingers. 

Address: 401 W 2nd St, Austin, TX 78701
Hours: 11AM – 2PM; 5:30PM – 11:00PM

*All Grades Are Based Solely on the Quality of Texas BBQ Offered at the Joint. We Aren't Looking for Burgers or Catfish!

My Grading Scale:

A = This is some of the finest BBQ you'll find anywhere. It is worth a roadtrip in itself along with any required wait.
B = This is very good BBQ, even if it is over an hour away, consider making the drive.
C = This is just average BBQ but it's worth a stop in a pinch.
D = This is a poor example of Texas BBQ. Even if it's the only place around, skip it. Apologize to any non-Texans that have eaten here.
F = This is not only a bad Texas BBQ, it is probably not suitable for human consumption.
