Artz Rib House quick-lunch

There is no quicker quick-lunch than carry-out, and Artz Rib House is a fine place to find it during the mid-afternoon lull when so many dining establishments have closed their doors after the lunch hour and have no plans to open them again until the dinner hour nears.

My true confession is that I have never sampled the eponymous ribs. I rely on the brisket, which is not greasy and bears no trace of ketchup flavor. The sauce at Artz is not sweet, and it contains jalapenos. And the links, of the finest, are from Austin’s own Smokey Denmark.

I really miss the Pit on South Congress (although at least the building won’t be empty long–look for New India Cuisine in that location soon), but let’s be thankful for Artz. I am. Very.

    The ribs are fantastic, though. Every time I’ve been there when someone has decided to not order the country-style ribs, they’ve spent the meal gazing longingly at their companion’s meal.
    But I do like the sausage. Best to get both.

    I definitely don’t eat at Artz often enough. Their ribs are unbeatable.
