I cannot wait for Beast to come to The Grove! We ventured to Beast and were very pleased with our first experience. I had the Smoked Fried Chicken and it did not disappoint. The tortillas were tasty too. Highly recommend!

As stated in the Title: I create great BBQ and I will gladly pay for this when in the area! The Pork Steak and belly were a revelation and give me something to pursue. I've not bought any better Brisket Including at Franklin's in Austin!...More

My pork was great. Others at my table ordered the chicken and were disappointed. Little meat, mostly bones. Cole slaw was runny.

Hi, Mike! If you're referring to the website, you'll need to follow the link from the "Food" tab to Facebook to see the menu for the day. It's always posted there. Hope this helps! David
