With La Barbecue recently opening inside the Quickie Pickie, there became a hole (located at 1906 E. Cesar Chavez St.) in Austin’s barbecue market. That hole was quickly filled by Hal’s BBQ, a new food truck serving the classics, like brisket and ribs, in addition to offering specials like Taco Tuesdays. The operators make all five of their barbecue sauces in their truck, including their signature habanero sauce, Texas Fight Sauce. The truck also makes all of their own sides, which include potato salad, cole slaw, and a melon salad. Hal’s is open Wednesday–Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (or sold out).
