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.
