I have heard from my Mountain View friends that Austin BBQ has closed. RIP best BBQ in the Bay Area.

    This place closing does not surprise me. The service was horrible and the food was either burned or undercooked. Not dissapointed at all.

      Well, I'll certainly miss it, even if Saybye won't. I only got there a couple times but I thought it was a fine place. I'm not sure I'd say it was the best BBQ in the bay area, but it was certainly *good,* it had a nice atmosphere and fine service.

      As I understand, they closed because they lost their lease.

      There's a place which (recently?) opened in San Jose called "Q and Brew" which was awfully good on the one visit I've made so far. Their pulled pork sandwich is done Carolina style (a thin vinegar-and-pepper based sauce), which I love.
