It all began in Cedar Park, TX

Our establishment is named in honor of the late James J. City (1918-2004). He was born and raised in Blanco, TX and moved to Austin as a young man where he operated as a local businessman in the construction industry. He dedicated his life to serving others and made his mouth-watering bar-b-que to share with family & friends for more than 70-years. James J. City was the grandfather of our owner, and everyone that knew him affectionately called him Papa (pronounced: Paw-Paw).  Continuing the tradition, at Paw-Paw's BBQ, we want you to enjoy down-home cooking that's meant to be shared with family & friends. 


Our corporate catering model was designed to bring the best of what we have to offer to your next office luncheon, board meeting, company appreciation event, wedding reception, birthday party or church social. Our bar-b-que brisket, chicken, sausage, pulled pork, ribs, burgers or sandwiches will be promptly delivered to your location, and most orders can be accommodated with as little as 24-hours notice.
