Does anybody know of any bbq joints in Austin that serves "Southern" style pork bbq that's dripping with a spicy hot and sweet tasting bbq sauce? I don't believe I've ever heard of any bbq place in Austin like that. It looks like there would be a market for it in a foodie/restaraunt town such as Austin, where people tend to be a bit adventurous in their fondness of different styles of food.

Pulled pork is tough enough to find!!! I wonder if SLAB would have the sauce you seek? I don't think they would sauce the pork before serving; but it might be an option to try.

Pok E Joe's messed up when they started simmering their pulled pork in some sort of peach habanero sauce or some such.

Rudy's WAY over sauced their pulled pork experiment so much that I don't know if they even serve it any more.

Are you looking for a mustard base??? Like South Carolina? or vinegar based with sweetness added like central North Carolina???....or something I'm not aware of???

It doesn't have a vinegar taste so it must be mustard based. I know I like it sweet and spicy and so hot that it will make my nose run and my eyes water and cause me to break into a sweat and it tastes so damn good it makes my eyes roll back in my head. The best ribs I ever had in Austin was Stubb's when he was located in the Travel Lodge Motel on the lower deck of I-35. The St. Louis ribs at Rudy's are good, but they couldn't hold a candle to Stubb's.

I was glad to see a Taco Bueno open nearby on Wm Cannon just west of I-35 where the Burger King use to be. It's fast food but it's one of the best fast food Mexican restaraunts in the region.

The best fast food Mexican in the region in my opinion is Taco Palenque on Northbound 35 in New Braunfels. They are out of Laredo. I would love for a Taco Palenque to come to far South Central Austin.

A local favorite Mexican restaraunt of mine is Casa Garcia's in the strip center on SE corner of Manchaca at Wm Cannon. It's been there for at least 30 years and have a good business but it don't seem like it gets the recognition it deserves.

Another favorite in South Austin is Flore's on West Wm Cannon almost Oak Hill. It's west of the Torchy's Tacos.

Would also love for a Taco Deli and a Tacorrido to come to Far South Central Austin. Southpark Meadows would be a great location for either of them and a Taco Palenque would be a good fit. Convenient off and on to 35.

Since this has been resurrected, I tried Via313 a few days ago and it was pretty good...

Between Via313 and Home Slice Pizza .. .. any preference?
