Restaurant Details

In a just world Robert Adams wouldn’t have needed to move Honey 1, his celebrated west-side barbecue joint. Pilgrims would have traveled from distant lands, pitching tents on his sidewalk and chanting its name in the same breath as Black’s, Arthur Bryant’s, Moonlite, and McClard’s. Businesses would have multiplied all around him, catering to the masses his restaurant attracted and employing hardworking people from the Austin community, and Robert Adams would have been a millionaire and a hero. Instead, after a few years of feast or famine, in 2005 Adams moved his operation to the north side, in Bucktown, then ten years after that moved it back south to its current home in a former beauty salon in Bronzeville. But he and his son Robert Jr. proffer the same ribs, tips, and links they did in Austin. And now, with a new custom-made Belvin aquarium smoker twice the size of the old one, the father-son team is smoking way more chicken, brisket, and pulled pork. The go-to order, however, remains the chewy, barky, smoke-saturated tips-and-links combo (sauce on the side, of course).
