Three former Stubb’s Bar-B-Q restaurants adopt new name

Following a 2017 lawsuit settlement that required local barbecue chain Stubb’s to change its name, the company has rebranded its restaurant locations at Lala’s Little Nugget in North Austin, Mean Eyed Cat downtown and Graceland Grocery on Hwy. 290 to Do-Rite Barbecue, according to their respective Facebook and Yelp pages.

The company’s music venue at 801 Red River St., Austin, still retains the original Stubb’s name on its website and Facebook page.

The 2017 settlement arrived after 18 months of negotiations between One World Foods, which makes Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q sauces, and the popular barbecue restaurant and venue.

The terms of the agreement remain confidential, but a representative for One World Foods said in a July 2017 news release that they allow the restaurant and venue to “live on” in Austin while also allowing the Stubb’s product brand to grow.

Per the settlement, One World Foods—which was purchased by McCormick and Co. in 2015—is the sole owner of the Stubb’s brand name and brand.
