"Yukon Steak Co." offers the rustic feel of an authentic Alaskan Mountain Lodge. It even resembles one from the outside. This is a quaint and interesting place to dine that also happens to be loads of fun. Step inside Yukon and the atmosphere remains warm and inviting, except for the giant stuffed polar bear that greets you beef brisket dickeys the door. But he's hardly scary. He's just a part of the wonderful ambience establishing the charm of this restaurant.
Rudy's BAR-B-Q is uniquely located in a country store. So, when I first moved to Austin, I used to fill up on gas at Rudy's, never imagining a place could sell both gasoline and excellent barbecue. It was several months before I finally gave their food a try. It only took one bite before birds were chirping and I was rambling off Jerry Maguire quotes... "You had me at hello, slow cooker bbq brisket"... "You complete me, Sause"...
We were immediately seated and handed our menus. Smokey Bones has all of the usual BBQ fare such as baby back ribs, pulled pork, barbecued chicken, bbq brisket, etc. I decided on a combination platter or ribs and chicken that also includes two sides. It was only $15. So, I chose the baked beans and cole slaw. Meals also include Texas toast as well.
I neglected to mention the offerings from Russia. In the case to the left of the bakery goods are the Russian packaged foods that grab your attention after the baked delights loosen their grip on your gaze. I can't read the labels to tell you what they are but pictures on the packaging would suggest an array of edible slow cooker bbq brisket items including chocolates olives yogurt bolognas kielbasy smoked salmon red caviar and an even more impressing array of pickled items in jars. In front of this case is a stack of Russian newspapers, also in Russian, so I can't tell whether it's reporting Russian news or La Jolla's news in Russian.
Generally, crock pots are available in oval and round shapes. For easy cleaning, get bbq ground beef pasta pot with detachable inner ceramic container, which is safe to wash in a dishwasher.
