It was here that Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q was born…
In the 1970′s, Stubb’s restaurant became the heart of an explosive music scene. Stubbs was ground zero for musicians like Joe Ely and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Other famous musicians who would “play for their supper” included Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Robert Cray, George Thorogood, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Linda Ronstadt and the Fabulous Thunderbirds.
Although small in size, Stubb’s Restaurant was always filled with good friends, great music and plenty of Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q.
The Lubbock location is now closed but the legend continues here in Austin at 801 Red River. Come on down for some Live Music, Cold Beer and Great Food!
The most famous for you SXSW-ers. Personally, I like the view from the stage.
To sneak up front, go to the east bar, look to the right, and you'll see a walkway that’s usually guarded by a worker. No big deal! Just walk by, go around the balcony, and you’ll be up front! – Artur
One of the few venues in town that always seems to stick to their schedule. So get there early. They start and end on time every time. – Laura B.
Not only is the barbeque delicious, but they have awesome indoor and outdoor stages! If you are a lover of indie or alternative rock, you will absolutely love it.
This place is a classic. People like John Lee Hooker, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Robert Cray, George Thorogood were all paid in beef at Stubbs, deaming the "work for your food" payment structure.
