The 33 Best Austin Restaurants (2024 Edition)

Evan LeRoy and Sawyer Lewis, two Austin restaurant and hospitality vets, decided to start their own barbecue venture in 2017. It quickly became one of the THE places for barbecue in Austin, but not necessarily for the same reasons as all the other Central Texas bbq joints.

LeRoy and Lewis coined the term “New School BBQ” to represent their menu. Rather than serving the expected options (sliced brisket, homemade sausage, ribs), they decided to mix it up. By sourcing their meat from nearby ranchers and crafting new takes on Texas bbq, like beef cheeks from nearby 44 Farms, and the “barbacado,” a ½ avocado stuffed with barbacoa, queso, cilantro, and jalapeno salsa. 

LeRoy and Lewis is a food truck parked at Cosmic Coffee on deep South Lamar. It’s a great spot to meet up with a big group because everyone can order their own entrees, grab a beverage from inside Cosmic, and enjoy it on one of the outdoor picnic tables.
