last trip to Austin and was not disappointed...actually I was disappointed that I physically could not eat more of the deliciousness that is Black's BBQ. So when I read a Serious Eats article (totes thought I had read it in Sunset magazine and spent a good 20 mins trying to find it before realizing it was SE) about Hi Lo BBQ opening up in SF, I was all over it! As a post- exploring the Dogpatch dinner we headed over there Sunday night and I was literally struggling to contain my excitement. All my pics are blurry because I was moving so quickly just trying to get to the counter to order- per usual I had already looked up the menu and decided what I wanted to order.
First off the space is AWESOME! Seriously such a cool look with a mix of seating options: big tables for large groups/different groups, smaller tables around the perimeter and a mezzanine area upstairs that looked really cute. There is a giant beach mural on the wall which is gorgeous and awesomely simple chandeliers- oh and all the wood on the walls are scorched which makes sense for a BBQ joint. You walk in and order at the counter before sitting down and they don't take reservations (luckily it wasn't that busy on Sunday night).
