Finally got in the mood for some BBQ and hit up Uncle Billy's on a beautiful May afternoon with some friends. Great vibe to this place, although the outdoor seating and cooperative weather certainly helped. Wide, open area with a big oak(?) tree in the center and lots of seating. The four beers I tried were all excellent interpretations of there respective styles (Pale, Wit, Amber, and Porter), and complemented the food well. Unfortunately, they didn't have a "Hoppy Tap" flowing at that time, which was a bummer. A few other local TX brews at the bar, too (Real Ale, Live Oak)
Service was good at first, but dropped off after about an hour as our waitress disappeared for 20-30 minutes at a time. Took a while to get our food, and my mashed potatoes and pulled pork were lukewarm upon arrival :( Still, the food was quite good. Prices were reasonable, nothing out of the ordinary. I'd come here again in a heartbeat, and probably will.

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.
