Arguably the best barbecue in Austin. However here at Astute, we typically do not post "food truck" entries as they tend to be more transient establishments and do not fit the needs of our normal traveling audience. My guess is that you will forgive us for this once you bite into your first succulent Texas Style BBQ rib or brisket. John Lewis honed his craft along side the legendary BBQ Mueller siblings. As is standard in the food truck world, all seating is outdoor on picnic tables.
