My husband ordered the 'beer can chicken' and I had the two meat BBQ plate. The server came out after she placed the order to let us know that the chicken would take about 20 minutes and to see if my husband wanted to change his order. We were waiting, just enjoying our beers when they brought an appetizer since... More

Timely service. Great recommendations. I enjoyed their local brews. Tried their chicken sandwich combo. Cooked to perfection, flavorful. Fried Okra was a hit! Reasonably priced. Ask for Happy Hour specials!

A new BBQ joint for Austin. Sports bar TV screens and bar area. Greeted at the entrance and shown to a table or banquet and waitress served. Cloth napkin and warmed bottle of BBQ Sauce served with our meal. My so-called cole slaw was rather chunkily cut cabbage, the potatoes were good, the brisket well-smoked. Filtered water over ice and... More

I was impressed with the management and the excellent wait staff. We visited late on Friday evening the 16th of December and it was our waitress first day we... More

My friends and I came here over the weekend of Formula One. Everyone thought very highly of this place; the food was great and had hefty portions with it, the atmosphere was unique, and the staff was very friendly. If we were ever back in Austin, I could see everyone want to come here again.

We were staying at the Hilton which is right by this restaurant. We were a party of four and everything we ordered was excellent. The sampler appetizer was really great--especially the bacon wrapped jalapeño chicken. They also have a full bar and a good selection of beers. Serving staff friendly and efficient.

Truth be told, we came here because of the food and the bodice/skort clad waitresses but apparently BD's is working to promote a more family friendly image. The staff were in jeans and t-shirts. I was surprised, a little disappointed, but enjoyed it all the same. Food was great and service was excellent even if they were dressed. Don't get... More

Food has always been excellent, as is the service. Been eating here for past 6 years. Brisket, chicken, pork, turkey, have tried them all. All are delicious!
