In the region around Texas’s state capital, beef is undisputed king of the barbeque pit. And the cut of steer most suited for showing off the dry-rub, slow-smoked Hill Country style is brisket. See for yourself at this small roadhouse, whose perfectly juicy, flavorful, fork-tender meat is priced to save you more than just a round trip to Austin. Sandwiches: from $7.49. Entrees: from $10.99.
