“Solid barbecue, tiny lot”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

On a recent business trip to Austin, I bought lunch for the office from Vic's, and was suitably impressed with the quality of their barbecue. Placing the order over the phone was a piece of cake, and Vic's made it very easy with their package deals.

This is a popular spot for lunch, and parking is very scarce, so expect some difficulty there. That small nit-pick aside, I'd recommend Vic's wholeheartedly to anyone.

“BBQ perfection”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

Went there for lunch with family and met the wonderful people behind the counter and there perfect BBQ. Had the brisket plate and 2 big red ( with real sugar ). Such good food and atmosphere. We'll worth the trip down to south Austin.

“Small Place, Great Taste”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

This is a small , family owned, hole in the wall barbecue. At first you may hesitate but be brave and enter a very enjoyable meal. The tables are old and the inside needs a paint a job but that just adds to it's charm.
The staff is friendly and warm. The fellow serving observed that my wife and I were new to the place and offered us samples of the food.
The food is served on paper plates but with this taste so what. All the meat was moist and tender. The sauce was the right combination of hot and sweet. The beans were fresh cooked and not out of the can. The cold slaw was great.
Locals love this place and it was full but it turned over fast.

“As good as NC BBQ (maybe better)”
Reviewed 30 October 2013 via mobile

We had a full plate of brisket, ribs, sausage, potato salad and beans. The sauce is perfectly tangy with vinegar that hits the back of your throat. Loved it! Thought North Carolina BBQ was the best, but this Texas joint was really really good!
