Barbecue is the messiest fare one can eat, right after mudpies and ballpark mustard consommé. Strap on a bib and suck down a rib with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of barbecue fare at Tug's Bar-B-Que in Lago Vista.
Tug's serves up a menu of savory, smoky Texas-style barbecue. Let hunger be lured to its delicious demise with a plated meal such as beef brisket ($7.99), beef or pork ribs ($8.99), savory sausage ($7.49.), and turkey ($7.99), or reassert dominance over bullying bovines with a 1/3 pound burger ($4.99).
Tug's accompanies each of its pristine proteins with the choice of two side dishes, such as potato salad, beans, coleslaw, or fries. To keep sweet teeth satisfied and stable, top off the dinner with Tug's rich banana pudding ($2.49). Tug's Bar-B-Que also serves up breakfast from 6 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., with toasty egg sandwiches ($3.79), breakfast tacos ($1.99–$2.79), and migas plates customized with each customer's choice of meat, starch, and bread ($6.49), providing a sturdy foundation for a day of cloud-lassoing.
