A new barbecue trailer rooted in Lockhart tradition, Queue, is headed to South Austin very soon. It will start serving at an opening party on Friday, October 11 at 6218 Brodie Lane near Sunset Valley.
Queue will serve a vast array of meats including brisket, beef and pork ribs, pulled pork, sausage, chicken, prime rib, and turkey. Meats will be available by the pound, or in sandwiches or tacos on handmade flour tortillas. Sides include Southern staples like mac and cheese and grits, along with lighter fare like charred corn and zucchini (one of a few vegan options on the menu).
Though the name is a play on his British heritage, Queue comes from pit master Stephen Mace, who grew up in Lockhart. During a decade-long career in the legal industry, he dreamed of opening a combination barbecue restaurant, brewery, and live music venue, and after several backyard barbecues perfecting recipes, Queue is his first step towards that dream.
Queue will be open from Wednesday to Friday from 5 to 10 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. or until sold out. The trailer will mostly be parked at the Brodie Lane location for now, but will be mobile for events and possible brewery residences in the future.
