Blue Ribbon Barbecue
120 E. 4th St
Blue Ribbon brings three generations of Texas style barbeque tradition to downtown Austin–literally. They smoke and cook their bbq for hours in Taylor Texas before it gets to your plate. Find Blue Ribbon at the corner of 4th and Brazos in the Frost Tower building. Lunch options range from BBQ plates with your choice of meat and sides, to sandwiches, salads, potatoes, or for the true meat lover, meat by the pound. People love Blue Ribbon’s “tender” and “flavorful” brisket as well as their “moist turkey” and the banana pudding. They also have some of the tastiest breakfast tacos in town . The brisket and the pulled pork tacos are amazing, and you’ll only need one. We can’t close the post without mentioning the owner, Bobby Cavo. Bobby grew up in a family famous for their barbeque and their service and it shows – if you visit the restaurant he’ll likely introduce himself and ask about your food. Meeting him in person you’ll find he is just a genuinely nice guy… and in case you don’t get a chance, he leaves his card with his number on every table!
Dine-in, order to-go, or get your food delivered for free! Bobby also offers full catering services for events in Austin. If you’re looking for a tasty, filling meal at a great price, look no further!
Today head over to Blue Ribbon to sample their Chopped Beef Sandwich for only $5.
