Grant Pinkerton has come a long way from tailgating before Longhorns football games. Now, his Heights barbecue joint turns out expertly cooked brisket, pork ribs, beef ribs, sausage, and more. A full beverage program that includes both cocktails and a well-chosen selection of wines, as well as signature sides like jalapeno cheese rice and smoked duck and sausage jambalaya, make Pinkerton's a worthy dinner destination, too.
