Renowned Austin pit master John Lewis steers the food program, and the menu is simple but abundant—large slabs of melt-in-your-mouth brisket, smoked sausages, and an array of sides, like corn pudding and tangy coleslaw. At Lewis Barbecue, it's all about the tray, and once you go through the line, chances are you will have one stacked with hedonistic glory.
One of the best parts of the experience is the staff, who slice and portion your meats on the plate. They're quick to offer a sample or suggestion or lay "just one more slice" on your tray before you leave their station. It feels fun, like a friendly picnic for a meat-loving club.
