#GeorgetownEats: Jimmy Vega’s Smokehouse


Craving some real, Texas Hill Country BBQ?


You can find the best BBQ and smoked meat in the world in Texas, so any BBQ place around had better be special. Jimmy Vega’s Smokehouse is that type of special. From brisket, ribs, and sausage to German potato salad and poached apples, they serve smokehouse-style food and provide catering services in Georgetown. Their work embodies the culture and cuisine that Central Texas has become world-famous for.


They opened their doors at their new location at 408 W. University Ave., Georgetown on May 26th. This isn’t a grand opening, but instead, it’s a relocation from their old spot at 40120 Industrial Park Circle, Georgetown.


The next time you and the family are hungry or you feel the need to try some of the best BBQ in the greater Austin area (and the world!), then be sure to head straight to Jimmy Vega’s Smokehouse’s new location. Here are some menu highlights to spark your appetite:


World Class BBQ Menu


Jimmy’s serves up BBQ hits like brisket, ribs, turkey, burgers, and sausage with a unique style and a lot of care and attention. You can tell how much they care when you bite into it. Here are some menu highlights that feature smokehouse fare that’s a little more niche:


Smoke-Roasted Bacon

Almost everyone loves bacon, but smoke-roasted bacon the way that Jimmy’s does it will impress even the most well-rounded of bacon aficionados. The flavor, texture, and finish, is impressive, to say the least.


The “What’s Good Here” Mega Sampler

If you’re looking at the menu and want everything, this sampler is the way to go. You get a little bit of everything from the smoker, plus two sides.


Honey Smoked Salmon Sandwich

Did you know that salmon has over 1.2 grams of Omega-3 acids per serving? When you order this little slice of fish heaven you’re not only eating the most delicious seafood sandwich you’ve ever had, but you’re also promoting your cardiovascular health. 



Hobo Cakes, ice cream, apple crisp, milkshakes, and cobbler are waiting for you if you manage to save room, which is as hard as it sounds at Jimmy’s.
