Dale Bakers in Austin

Postby mlmurrah » Tue Jan 12, 2010 12:01 pm

Wonder if anyone remembers Dale Baker's in Austin? I used to go there when I was a student at the University of Texas in the late 1960s. Dale has gone to barbecue heaven, and the place is long gone, but I can still taste the mustard based sauce. I used to keep my two slices of bread until everything else was gone and sop the sauce with it.

I'd love to have a recipe for the sauce. Can anyone help?

I don't know anything about that place. Famous Daves has an awesome mustard base sauce that is about all that was good there. Oh the corn bread muffins were pretty good too.

I would like to say, that yes, I do remember Dale Bakers in Austin. My family, the Dickens, lived at 507 Deep Eddy Avenue from 1955 until we had to sell the house in January 2019. Mom and Dad, Margaret and Lewis (Babe) Dickens, would take us kids to eat there. Remember the sawdust on the floors. There were us 3 girls (Linda, Diana, and me Mary, along with younger brother Lewis) and we just loved the place. It had the best bbq smell and it would just make your mouth water. Always has a special place when the family would talk about it and Mom and Dad just loved your Dad. Memories are Great. Many a day spent at Deep Eddy swimming, running across Lake Austin Blvd barefoot. Those were the days. God Bless You.

I remember your family well. Your sisters were the prettiest in the neighborhood. Diana was a year behind me in school.

Loved Dale Bakers! The sauce and potato salad was the best. Sawdust on the floor until the stupid city made them stop. I ate there at least once a week. I would love to have the sauce recipe!

I would enjoy making a Texas mustard sauce recipe, I've been using Pork Barrel mustard sauce, they've been out of business a while now and I only have a few bottles left.

To dispel any fears of commercial or competition aspirations on my part, I have zero restaurant experience except as a patron and working at Wendy's back in high school. I'm an engineer who spent his career turning crude oil and natural gas liquids and getting the various useful stuff to market until my health forced my retirement. I still enjoy the metamorphosis of animal parts to savory meals from my patio pits.

I do not see that the recipe was ever posted? Would it be possible to have it emailed? My father is Arnold Blomdahl who has been in the bbq game since 80's and started at Bert's bbq and then branched out & started Blom's BBQ & Burgers in Austin TX!
