U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, in Austin for the Vietnam War Summit at the LBJ Library, did what all dignitaries must do while in town. He chowed down on the most Texan food possible.
Like boss President Barack Obama before him — POTUS has famously visited Franklin Barbecue and Torchy’s Tacos — Kerry picked a local standby and visited Iron Works BBQ, according to Eater Austin. The website reports that the former U.S. senator’s drop-in was preceded by a Secret Service stop and that Kerry pre-ordered beef ribs with green beans and coleslaw.
Eater also reports that the secretary stayed for more than an hour and mingled with customers before he left.
