Freedmen’s is known to be a no fuss straight chill smokehouse barbecue joint with a friendly crowd sharing covered patio. Perfect to enjoy some smoked meat and brews. So if you find yourself hungry and near UT (west campus area) then it’s a must visit. 

Jalapeño Cheese

Start with some smoked beets or the jalapeño cheese app. Plenty to get the belly ready for some barbecue. 

Turkey Sammy

During happy hour the barbecue sammies are $5 stuffed with your favorite meat. Whether it’s sliced or chopped brisket, turkey, sausage or pulled pork. 

Brisket Sammy


They serve them with jalapeños, pickled onions and pickles on the side. So when you put it all together you feel like you made it yourself. Make it spicy, add more onions or less pickles, you are the pit master at Freedmen’s.

And of course dessert.  Which is smoked. Why? Because you’re at a smoke house silly. 

Smoked Banana Pudding

Don’t forget to visit them during Sunday brunch!
