TFP BBQ Ep. 60 - LeRoy and Lewis BBQ

July 2, 2018
Evan LeRoy's BBQ journey began in the backyard with his dad, took him all the way to New York to cook Texas barbecue, then back to Austin where he made Freedmen's bar one of the premier BBQ destinations in Texas. After a few years at Freedmen's, Evan was ready to strike out on his own. Along with business partners Nathan and Sawyer Lewis, plans were made to open a brewery and restaurant serving Evan's creative menu alongside Lewis' craft beers. 

While the brewery remains in development, Evan and Sawyer are operating the LeRoy and Lewis BBQ truck parked at 121 Pickle Road next to Cosmic Coffee and Beer in the South Congress area of Austin. Open five days a week for lunch and dinner, Evan and his team of talented cooks (including Brad Robinson who was kind enough along with Evan to join us for this interview) are serving some of the best, most innovative barbecue in Texas; New school BBQ with old school service.

With a strong team and a commitment to hyper-local fresh product and the highest quality proteins, the flavor and cooking execution of the LeRoy and Lewis menu is second to none. With rotating items such as sliced beef cheek, Sichuan peppercorn beef ribs, firebox roasted sweet potatoes, and their acclaimed smoked and seared burger (available for dinner only), there is always an interesting and delicious menu available from Evan and crew.
