Green Mesquite BBQ - 1400 Barton Springs Rd. - South Austin - 512.479.0485
The Green Mesquite is located close to Downtown on the other side of the Colorado River in South Austin. It is close to Zilker Park and a couple football field lengths away from where the Austin City Limits Festival is held. This is the first location that opened in the late 1990s.
As any BBQ restaurant they serve beef, ribs, pork, sausage and chicken, but they are more than just a straight up BBQ menu. Some items I don't see at all barbeque restaurants are jumbalaya, chili cheese fries, fried okra, onion rings and catfish po-boys. The Green Mesquite also serves up a good ole American hamburger.
Prices range from $5.00 for a sliced beef sandwich, to $8 - $12 for barbeque plates.
The Green Mesquite is also a live music establishment with open mic Thursdays and bluegrass and bbq Sundays. They usually have music all week long. Music Calendar
