Culturemap has the scoop on a new brick-and-mortar restaurant in North Austin that is making our mouth seriously water: “Smokin’ Beauty’s opening menu reflects this East-meets-West meaty fusion, with brisket banh mi, banh mi cheeseburger, and pork belly banh mi served alongside sides like sriracha and soy sauce.”

Yum. The kitchen officially opens this afternoon and they have all the barbecue, cocktails, and beer you could ever need to make your Friday feel like a Friday again. They have a driv-thru menu, or you can sit down and eat your meal safely with their many COVID protocols.

Come celebrate this new local gem’s opening on one of their two patios!

When: Friday, August 28th

Time: 4 p.m.–midnight

11806 N. Lamar Blvd.

In her previous life, Kristy was an uninspired realtor who was feeling a little bit bored with her day to day. So on January 1, 2010, she made a New Year’s resolution to write about one thing to do each day in her beloved city of Austin, Texas. And thus, 365 Things Austin was born.
