Our first stop in Austin, to get some lunch and "que." Nice, spacious outdoor seating. It was a beautiful day, couldn't ask for more. Unlce Billy's is located right on a strip near Shady Grove, Chueys and a few others.
Started with a sampler that included 5 beers, incl an amber, pale ale, wit, coffee stout (really tasty) as well as what was described as a hybrid between the amber and pale ale. All drinkable. The wit, fresh and lite went perfect with the BBQ.
They had 3-4 taps dedicated to local micros too. Wish I had gotten a chance to try the 512 Pecan Porter too, but we didn't have enough time.
Nice menu for lunch. You can order a BBQ meat plus 1-3 sides. Got the BBQ pork with slaw. The portions are not huge, but enough at least for lunch.
Great stop. Not sure if they have music at night. We passed by on Friday night and it looked kinda quiet. Certainly worth seeking out when in the area.
I got a logo pint here as well. Nice stop.

Uncle Billy's used to be my favorite brewpub in town when it opened, but it has definitely experienced a change since its first days. The head brewer leaving was a strike against it, even though the current brewer does a good job and makes some great beers, it was a step down compared to what it was. The food though has taken the biggest hit, as the menu and quality has changed for the worse. Don't get me wrong; it's not a terrible place, but I loved their chili cheese fries, and while the bbq wasn't anywhere near the best in town, it still was pretty tasty and went great with the beers here.
It's got a great location and patio on Barton Springs Road and is a nice place to hang out and grab some beers. Still definitely worth a visit.
