Right off of Rio Grande, in the heart of West Campus lies Freedman’s Bar. The spicy rub on the brisket and the fall off the bone ribs make Freedmen’s some of the best BBQ in town, hands down…and the Holy Trinity Plate includes both along with the House-made Sausage! Plus with a nonstop changing cocktail list, it’s fun to try out the Bartender’s Choice, but any of their Whiskey cocktails are perfect pair with BBQ. Ask for the Bartender’s Choice. The outdoor seating is casual and one of the most inviting patios in the city… and easily accommodates larger groups.
Take a stroll through the UT campus after eating, first stopping at the UT Co-op Bookstore. Pick up any Longhorn goodies you may need or simply people watch on Guadalupe. Don’t forget to make a stop at the UT Tower on your tour through campus, one of the Austin’s skylines most famous features.
Tip: There are 45 minute student-led tours that take you up the UT Tower. Tickets can be purchased at the Texas Union on 24th and Guadalupe St.
