Where Else Could Pres. Obama Have Eaten BBQ in Austin?
President Obama visited Austin yesterday and had lunch at Stubb's BBQ, a choice that some food nerds found surprising, given the growing list of choices on offer in Austin.
So where else could the President have dined on brisket and pork? To help answer that question, we asked Austin American-Statesman restaurant critic Matthew Odam.
He has a new review today of a newer barbeque restaurant in West Campus called Freedmen's. To hear more about Freedmen's and other places on Odam's list of suggestions, click the player above. Below, a sampling of Austin reaction to Obama's choice:
Please don't tell me the president is eating his one meal in the city at the 12th best barbecue restaurant in Austin. #atxobama— Addie Broyles (@broylesa) May 9, 2013
Pool report from Austin, TX: "Motorcade arrived at a local BBQ joint called Stubb's Bar-b-q at 2:25." That place is the BEST.— Jennifer Bendery (@jbendery) May 9, 2013
Were Obama running for re-election again, he might have just lost Travis County over the Stubbs selection for lunch. #atxobama— Mike Johnson (@MJohnsonEsq) May 9, 2013
