Updated Review of Stiles Switch House BBQ (Austin, TX)
Flashback today on the reviewin'. We'd previously visited back in April (original review here), and had decided it was good and definitely worth a visit, but not quite worth a trip because none of the trifecta made it into the 8+ range in score. I stopped in there today for lunch and got a three meat plate (brisket, turkey, pork loin).
Turkey: This is still excellent. Nice and moist, a nice smoky flavor, and not too salty. Still a solid 10/10.
Pork: This is equally good. Just the right amount of smoke. It's got a slightly spicy kick to it that compliments the smoke nicely. I gave this a nine last time, and this batch is even better. 10/10.
Brisket: The brisket last time was good, but not great. This shows the difference between lean and moist. This is juicy, tender, has a nice smoky flavor, and a good bark. It melts in the mouth nicely. I bought a little extra and passed it around to a few people and it is getting compliments from them as well. 9/10.
Since there were three previous scores of 8 or above, and one of the trifecta has now scored 8 or higher, I think I can safely say Stiles is worth a trip. Make sure you check them out!
