Conveniently located within walking distance to Rainey Street. If time is short and you are looking to get some solid BBQ downtown, head to Iron Works for dinner and then to Rainey Street for a night cap. It’s a perfect combo I often use with folks visiting from out of town.

From Iron Works website:

“You have just entered a unique piece of Texas history Austinites are proud to call their own. Originally an ornamental Iron Work shop owned and operated by the Weigl family, this little tin building was converted into The Iron Works BBQ in 1978. Shortly after opening their doors, the State Historical Commission registered the property as a historical site, honoring the Weigls and their legacy … The Iron Works BBQ is a family owned and operated business that has been serving Real Texas Barbecue in a country atmosphere since 1978”
