— Pflugerville's Brotherton Barbecue teamed up with Round Rock’s Fire and Ice Pizza for a special barbecue pie, full of brisket, barbecue sauce, and pickled onions and spicy pickles. A portion of the sales will go towards Veteran Outdoors.

— For Veterans Day, Statesman spoke to veterans currently in the service industry, like Brewer's Table's Jake Maddux, who kept a list of his favorite beers while stationed in South and Central America.

Wall Street Journal gets its breakfast taco on, breaking down Austin's offerings from traditional (Veracruz All Natural), barbecue (Valentina's Tex Mex BBQ), to trendy (Delicious).

— Texas-style barbecue is now a thing in Toronto. One pitmaster was inspired to do his own thing after eating at Franklin Barbecue for the first time.

— Steakhouse chain Ruth's Chris Steak House underwent renovations that cost over $1 million, according to Austin Business Journal, which included opening up the previously dim place.

— Easy Tiger was closed for lunch yesterday because of a fire in the kitchen (though the bakery and beer garden remained opened), but quickly reopened for dinner. No one was hurt.

— Without mentioning food trucks, Food & Wine called out Austin as a good city for street food, mentioning kimchi fries from Chi’lantro.
