Austin’s barbecue scene is stellar, so it makes sense that everyone would want to try those smoked meats, even celebrities, especially during this past Memorial Day weekend. This includes actress and model Emily Ratajkowski, as well as actors, comedians, and friends Nick Kroll and Jason Mantzoukas, who visited two of the city’s best barbecue spots, Terry Black’s Barbecue and La Barbecue.
Ratajkowski ordered up ribs and a bunch of sides from Terry Black's Barbecue on Barton Springs Road on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29. She shared a photo of herself with a mostly-eaten rib captioned, “When in Texas.” To complete her very Austin day, she followed that with a visit to Barton Springs Pool.
Kroll and Mantzoukas hit up La Barbecue while it’s still part of the Aztec Food Trailer Park on Sunday, May 28. They ordered the works, which meant brisket, sausage, pulled pork, etc. The duo even got to visit the smokers with general manager Cameron Kalka.
La Barbecue is going to move just a block away, taking over Quickie Pickie’s kitchen on East Cesar Chavez (the market will remain open).
