Stubb's Bar-B-Q, the Texas institution known for its live music, rustic atmosphere and authentic slow-smoked, hand-trimmed barbecue, is a nominee for a Readers' Choice Award for Best Gourmet Sauces.
In the late 1960's, C.B. "Stubb" Stubblefield opened his first restaurant in Lubbock, Texas. The restaurant quickly became a destination for authentic barbeque and live entertainment. Stubbs was ground zero for musicians like Joe Ely and Stevie Rap Vaughn. In the early 1990's, Stubb's Bar-B-Q restaurant relocated to Austin's entertainment district, where it remains today. The restaurant is located downtown on the corner of Red River and 8th Street, housed in a rustic building with a huge backyard that holds thousands nightly for live music and delicious barbeque.
For those not fortunate enough to travel to Austin to enjoy Stubb's legendary mesquite smoked BBQ in person, there's hope. Stubb's offers its famous BBQ sauces, rubs and marinades through its online store.
