This was close to our hotel after we had flown in to Austin and we were really hungry. What a lucky find! The selection was what you would expect in meats, and sides, cold drinks and facilities. I think what makes it really great is the staff, they are friendly and check back after you've settled in with your brisket... More

You can always count on a value meal with excellent sides not often found at BBQ restaurants. I have eaten here on numerous occasions and the quality is always highly consistent. The BBQ is not Lockhart good, but then who is in Austin. It is highly flavorful and properly seasoned. The staff is top drawer!! If you are looking for... More

I had Sunday lunch with 7 family members at Pok-e-Jo's. All of our meals were very good. They have a great selection of side to go along with the BBQ. Between the 8 of us we ordered just about everything.The staff was friendly and the dining room was comfortable. We will be back.

What seemed to be a good deal ended up being good amount of food, not that much meat. I guess I should have been suspicious when I saw you could get cobbler as a side. Flavor was fine, nothing out of the ordinary, but the amount of meat was so little it was just unfair. Got lots of sides, not... More

This restaurant offered great bbq and sides! We ordered one of the family meals and for about $50 we had WAY more food than we could possibly eat! Our favorites- the jalapeño cornbread and bbq chicken. The peach cobbler was amazing too!

We had Pok-e-Jo's cater a dinner for about 15 ladies and the fajitas were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! We got the mixed fajitas with all the sides! I'm picky on my queso and guacamole but it was delicious. They came and set up everything at the house and did a great job and they were very prompt on getting there! So easy... More

We tried the 3 meat plate and between the 2 of us they were: brisket, turkey, sausage, and ribs. We for sure did not like the sausage. It was too slimy for our taste.

I'm not even done eating and I'm already writing my review. Walked in and asked the man behind the counter what's good? He proceeded to cut off small samples of everything and it was all good. Settled on 2 meat platter and was blown away how good it was. I might have to come to Austin more often. Real deal... More

The number one reason why we love catering in Austin is that Austinites love BBQ!
It is truly one of Central Texas’ signature cuisines, and we are lucky enough not only to be able to serve up some ‘que in our five stores, but also to bring it out into the world to all sorts of catered events in the area.
Be it a wedding, birthday party, or corporate event, it’s great to be able to give your guests a true taste of Austin with our catering service.
Austin is an eclectic city with a wide variety of culinary tastes, which makes catering in Austin an exciting challenge. This may shock you, but sometimes people want more than BBQ for their menu. Crazy, I know. So, when it comes to catering, we come prepared to bring Austin diverse menus to match the tastes of the town.
Fajitas? Check. Prime Rib? Check. When we start talking about the options we bring to the table with our catering, Austinites who have only ever had our food in one of our five stores are floored. Don’t believe us? Just check out our Full Service catering menu.
When you need catering in Austin, Pok-e-Jo’s is here for you. And before you think, “Pok-e-Jo’s can’t do that,” stop yourself. Give us a shot, and join the list of people here in Central Texas who have gotten to sit back and enjoy an awesome catered party with us.
