Barbecue Brisket Sandwich
New-school barbecue truck LeRoy & Lewis and Bird Bird Biscuit are teaming up for a brisket biscuit sandwich, naturally. The limited sandwich will be available at both South Austin food truck and the Cherrywood restaurant on the weekends throughout February until sold out. Even better: the barbecue truck can add any smoked meat to the biscuit, including barbacoa. Two dollars from every sale will go towards the Austin Food and Wine Alliance.
