On our trip we had BBQ every day, If you are in downtown Austin - this is the best. Saw this place featured on Triple D and it lives up to its name. The burnt ends sandwich is to die for!

Service: Exceptional Drinks: Good Food: Just Average I am a fan of BBQ, and honestly was expecting something amazing. But was disappointed. The ribs were dry and the rest of the food we ordered was strictly average

Like Ray5000, I didn't see any, but that doesn't mean there aren't any. I don't go to restaurants to watch TV. Call Lambert's and ask them.
