Stubbs BarBQ History

Stubbs BarBQ has been a Texas tradition since 1968 when Christopher Stubblefield opened his first restaurant in Lubbock, Texas years after returning from the Korean War. He opened up right across the street from the fairgrounds and soon became part of the local music scene which was growing at the time. Everyone loved Stubbs' food including the musicians who came through town including Johnny Cash, John Lee Hooker, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Muddy Waters, Linda Ronstadt and others. Eventually many of these musicians agreed to play a few songs for their dinner and a music venue was born. These days Stubbs has moved to Austin, but the same great food and music are still an integral part of the venue.


Stubbs BarBQ Events

What could be better than going to a venue world renowned for its great food and then seeing some of the best bands in the world hit the stage. This is precisely what happens when you attend a show at Stubbs. Bands like Flogging Molly, G Love and Special Sauce, Chromeo, Local Natives, Vampire Weekend, Thievery Corporation, The 1975, Neon Trees, the Toadies and many more are among the modern bands that help carry on the excellent music tradition that has made Stubbs BarBQ the one of a kind venue that it is today.


Austin, Texas

Austin, Texas is known as The Live Music Capital of the World and there are countless venues to explore so that no matter what kind of music you prefer there is sure to be live music to suit your taste being played on any given night. The city was named after Stephen F. Austin who is considered the father of Texas. When visiting Austin be sure to check out Zilker Park which is a favorite tourist destination. Zilker Park has made its presence in Austin since the early 1900s, when the land was first donated by Andrew Jackson Zilker. The park includes hike and bike trails, and is included on the National Register of Historic Places. Perhaps best-known during one weekend a year as host to the huge Austin City Limits Music Festival, Zilker Park also sells occasional sports tickets and tickets to other events, as well.


Stubbs BarBQ Seating Layout

Stubbs is the perfect place to catch a big name band playing in a smaller venue than they can usually be seen. The seating is all general admission so arriving early is important if you want to be up close for your favorite act. Another reason to arrive early to Stubbs BarBQ is of course the food. You will not want to leave Stubbs and have to tell your friends that you did not get to sample their world famous barbecue.


Trivia

Christopher Stubblefield, the founder of Stubbs, was a Texas native who fought as a staff sergeant in the 96th Field Artillery in the Korean War. The 96th Field Artillery was the last all black infantry in the army. He really developed his cooking skills while in the army when he would have to help prepare food for 10,000 soldiers.
