“Carved out of a brick-walled general store that dates from 1873, it is raising the bar (and provoking outrage among purists) with its newfangled ‘fancy barbecue’ â think brown-sugar-and-coffee-rubbed brisket and maple-and-coriander-encrusted pork ribs.”
— Jaime Gross, New York Times
“Lamberts takes its cocktails quite seriously. The Sanchez, which is essentially a vodka martini filthy with olive juice over cracked ice and garnished with pickled jalapeÃ±os, is a remarkably good companion to simple but succulent smoked barbecued chicken accompanied by the tastiest salsa verde on the planet. With its lively dining room and bands playing upstairs, you’ll recognize Lamberts as a place you could spend four or five quality hours. And so you will. You raise your glass and toast to keeping Austin weird.”
