STORY

A true Texas style BBQ joint – right in Berlin-Wedding.

Lino is a Texas native, born in Houston. After more than a decade as a chef in several restaurants in Germany, he decided to return to his country of birth to learn how to smoke meat.

At Stiles Switch BBQ in Austin/Texas, Lino spent long days and nights in front of the pit, dug deep into the local BBQ tradition and then brought both skill and passion back to Berlin. Now Lino’s is the place to go in the German capital when it comes to perfect & authentic Texan Barbecue:

  • We use the best meat only: All Natural Black Angus Beef and Swabian-Hall Pig, an old breed, raised under humane conditions. The meat is tender, dark and full of flavor.
  • All meat is rubbed with salt and pepper only, then smoked solely over oak wood for that authentic Texas BBQ taste
  • Homemade Jalapeño Sausage, homemade BBQ sauces, bacon and pickles. Fresh and homemade sides and desserts
  • Weekly changing Berlin made Pils and IPA on tap plus a fine selection of special liquor and Schnaps
