If you live in Austin, you either worship good BBQ… or you’re a vegan and don’t know what you’re missing.
Tonight the Automatticians in town for WordCamp Austin and the Audrey Capital team met for dinner at Freedman’s. We enjoyed melt in your mouth brisket, pork spare ribs with meat that literally fell clean off the bone, and amazing sides and desserts. Everyone loved the roasted beets with chevre (they were almost like candy) and jalapeno bacon mac & cheese. The smoked banana pudding and smoked and salted chocolate mousse were pretty fantastic as well.
I don’t usually do product or venue reviews because I’m the kind of person whose favorite meal/book/movie is the one I’m currently enjoying, so don’t take this as a restaurant review, though in all honesty, I don’t see why people wait 4 hours for lunch at certain local establishments starting with the same letter as Freedman’s, when there’s a place not that far away with a great ambiance and fantastic food. Just sayin’.
