Popular sandwich shop Noble Sandwich Co. opened its barbecue offshoot Interstellar BBQ today, Thursday, February 21, at 12233 Ranch Road 620 in far northwest Austin. For the following week, it will open at 11 a.m. every day with a limited menu until everything is sold out. It’s also BYOB for the time being.
On Interstellar’s deck are the Texas barbecue staples — brisket, pulled pork, sausages, ribs, chicken — as well as other interesting additions like lamb shoulder and rack of lamb. Then there are sides like scalloped potatoes, spicy pickles, pinto beans, slaw, etc.
Co-owners and co-chefs John Bates and Brandon Martinez had been operating Interstellar as a barbecue pop-up since last summer. They converted Noble’s original restaurant on 620 for the new barbecue joint, which shuttered on Christmas Eve in 2018. (The Burnet Road sandwich location remains open.)
Next up for Noble is its Austin-Bergstrom International Airport location, as well as a permanent home for its food truck.
