Over Memorial Day a few friends and I headed out to Lake LBJ. Thanks JLR for hosting! And we stopped by Opie’s BBQ… cue drooling now. In case you’ve been living under a rock and have never heard about Opie’s BBQ, let me fill you in.
It smells like heaven.
And the tater tot casserole?
Well, that practically sent me over the edge.
I was first introduced to the greatness that is Opie’s Barbecue a few summers ago. Now, it’s definitely the stopping point on the way out to the lake. Also, I ran into Opie’s BBQ at the Spicewood Springs Chili Cookoff. They were the ones who gave me the idea for using brisket in my chili. Or maybe that was the jello shots they were handing out… hmm. Fuzzy. So what I’m saying is, not only does Opie’s hands down have the best BBQ, they’re also party animals. My kinda people.
In the center of the restaurant is large island that you can help yourself to bread, onions, pickles and the bbq sauce served out of large cauldrons.
