The first time I dined at Stub's was in 2008 & it was Ok, but not outstanding. This September I was in Austin for a business conference & our company owner treated us to Stubs. It was awful. The service was very poor just like the cold food. There is no seating while waiting for a table & no place to stand either for 30 min. The ribs were so tough you could not get them off the bone. The onion rings tasted like unseasoned paste on oinons that were fried & then left until cold. I will never go back.

I don't really get the big deal, I went here with my boyfriend for lunch last week and the bbq wasn't that great (mainly the ribs were dry). In fact, it was VERY overpriced for the amount of food they give you. Also, the staff really does seem unapproachable. Haven't been there to see a show yet, so my views of it may change later, but for now I wouldn't be a regular.

My new husband and I decided to visit this place on a Sunday because he has heard so much about it. The ambience was nice and I was really forward to dining here. We were sooo dissapointed, the waiters were VERY rude and just sitting around by the bar. The food was very mediocre. We had ordered the chicken, ribs, brisket with sides and appetizers of green tomatoes and chile con queso. The ribs were dry and so was the brisket. My spinach/cheese was so spicy that I couln't eat it. The mashed sweet potates were good but came with pecans which wasn't on menu and big problem for me since I'm allergic. The fried green tomatoes were decent except batter was so spicy that it cancelled out any real taste. Even my water was bad, it tasted like rubber.
The service was so bad that and rude that we were almost afraid to ask for our bill. Even the couple in the next table said the same thing
The best things were the chicken and chile con queso.
Just because it's a ""famous"" music place doesn't mean that the management should let everything go by the wayside. Never going back...Yucky

We dropped into Stubbs on Saturday as one of my favorite concert DVD's was filmed there I just wanted to look over the venue. OMG, the staff! These people are just full of themselves. I had wondered why the word ""Stubbs"" muttered on Sixth Street caused so many wrinkled noses, now I know. You'd think they were the talent instead of being the ones to wait on the talent! Too bad because visually it's easy on the eye!

Can't believe the rudeness of the waitress. Having marvelled at US style service, it was hugely disappointing to receive such poor attention. From wrong delivery of order, to late delivery of food, to having to ask sevceral times for items and a 'couldn't care less' attitude. The food was OK. The manager was just as bad as the waitress.
Once the bill error was resolved (they tried to charge twice for the 18% gratuity) their rudeness continued, with no apology or thankyou.
This restaurant does not deserve to be recommended in any Austin guide.

Came down for the Los Lonely Boys Concert, which by the way was fantastic and Stubb's outdoor concert stage in the back was a reat place to watch and listen to music, A+. Now the food - ribs and chicken were OK, but the sides and appetizers needed a lot more taste than what was presented to us. The portions are difinitely small, surprisingly coming from a Texas B-B-Q joint and especially for the price your paying for them. Come here for the music, but you can find better elsewhere if you have the time.

My friends and I got really sick when we ate here and when I wrote a letter demanding an apology this is the manager's response:
"" If you were not happy with the temperature of the brisket, a simple managerial request would have corrected the situation. I would also like to state that each brisket renders over 8 pounds of lean and marbled brisket and this is the only complaint that I've received. We pride ourselves in providing our patrons with the finest in Texas BBQ at a reasonable price, and if that warrants an apology, then my sincerest is what you have.""
talking about bad customer service.

I can't name a better brunch experience in Austin. The gospel performers are always great and the food is good, but should be better. We've always loved their sauce and regularly send it to folks for Christmas, so we get a lot of Out of Texas visitors that want to check the place out when they visit. Don't go on a show night looking for a quick meal, as sometimes the place is sold out for their big amphitheater and the lines to get in are enourmous.
