LeRoy & Lewis
No Texas dinner table is complete without barbecue, and Christmas meals are no exception. Texas Monthly favorite LeRoy and Lewis is offering a staggering list of holiday treats including everything from tamales by the dozen to whole briskets, sides, and more. Order early (like now) to get one of the very limited, delicious-sounding Countryside Farm turkey roulades, a half deboned turkey with black garlic, mushroom, and foie gras stuffing that’s rolled, tied, sous vide, and smoked.
Cost: Menu prices vary per item.
How to order: Pre-order online for pick-up.
The 16 Best Burger Joints in Austin
This inventive food truck on the lawn of Cosmic Coffee and Beer Garden sources all their meat from small, responsible Texan ranchers before firing them to perfection. The L&L is their richest and tastiest, made with a smoked, reverse-seared half-pound Texas Akaushi brisket patty, melted American cheese, house made pickles, chopped and grilled onions, and housemade beet barbecue mayo, all on a Martin’s potato roll. A side of Kale Caesar Slaw should help fan the flavor.
How to book: Stop by for counter service.
