LeRoy & Lewis Barbecue Debuts New Brick-and-Mortar Location

Austin’s culinary scene is about to get even hotter as the beloved food truck, LeRoy & Lewis, steps into a new chapter with the grand opening of its first brick-and-mortar restaurant and bar. Led by the dynamic duo of Evan and Lindsey LeRoy, alongside Sawyer and Nathan Lewis, this latest venture promises to elevate the barbecue experience to new heights.

Since its inception in 2017, LeRoy & Lewis has been a beacon of innovation in the local barbecue scene, championing responsible sourcing from Texas ranches and whole animal utilization. Now, with a permanent home located at 5621 Emerald Forest Drive, the team is poised to continue their flavorful journey with an expanded menu and an inviting space for patrons to enjoy.

Chef Evan LeRoy’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of barbecue shines through in the restaurant’s offerings. From old school cuts like chuck steak and flatiron prepared in new school ways to inventive handhelds like the Loncito taco paying homage to longtime partner Loncito Cartwright, every dish is a celebration of flavor and creativity.

The opening menu is a testament to this culinary vision, featuring sharable delights such as a trio of pinto jalapeno hummus, smoked eggplant, and creamy bacon onion dips, alongside handheld highlights like the Frito Rico, a frito pie in taco form that is sure to delight the taste buds.

Meat lovers will rejoice at the array of options available, from sliced and chopped beef to pulled whole hog and lamb, all sourced from local Texas ranches. And with sides like hog fat refried beans and kimchi, there’s something to complement every palate.

But the experience doesn’t stop at the food. Co-owner Nathan Lewis has curated a thoughtful beverage program that highlights local purveyors and complements the barbecue fare perfectly. Guests can choose from a selection of local draft beers, canned favorites, and a diverse wine list featuring both by-the-glass options and bottles available for purchase at the retail counter.

The restaurant’s design, crafted in collaboration with OPA Design Studio and Solutions General Contracting, exudes warmth and hospitality, with custom touches that reflect the team’s personality and mission. From the cozy bar area to the outdoor patio, every space invites guests to relax and savor the experience.

As Sawyer Lewis aptly puts it, “This brick and mortar is a culmination of our team’s collective passion and hard work.” And indeed, it’s clear that LeRoy & Lewis is ready to continue pushing the boundaries of barbecue while ensuring that every guest leaves with a smile.

LeRoy & Lewis will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 am to 9 pm initially, with plans to expand hours in the future. For updates and specials, follow them on Instagram @leroyandlewis and visit www.leroyandlewisbbq.com for more information and menus.
