Sometimes, you just have to take a leap of faith. That's what Luis Vasquez did when he left his job as an auto-insurance adjuster to pursue his cooking passion in 2015. And the results have been spectacular.
Louie's BBQ is now well established at its Southern Congress location and serves up all the traditional staples you expect from a BBQ: brisket, ribs, jalapeno cheese sausage, and a variety of sides that are just as tasty as the main meaty stars.
Every BBQ food truck in Austin needs something to set it apart from the crowd though, and having great smoked brisket just doesn't cut it anymore. Louie's BBQ has an ace in the hole though; a massive stuffed potato called The Sleeper. You start off with a normal potato, baked to perfection with salt, butter, and pepper. Then you add two scoops of mac-n-cheese, twotypes of smoked meat, BBQ sauce, salsa, sour cream, and top the entire thing off with some shredded cheese. Luis says the heaviest one he's ever made weighed 3.65 lb.
Whether you're looking for a great place to hang out and enjoy some meaty goodness, or if you want to challenge yourself with one of Louie's stuffed potatoes, you definitely won't leave Louie's BBQ hungry.
