Found this place wandering around on our recent trip to austin. Can not get that pulled pork, bacon mac and cheese, or especially the delicious fresh light coleslaw out of my head. Makes me want to come back just to go back here :)

We had the pork ribs, brisket and coffee encrusted pork tenderloin. It was really good. The Mac and chez with bacon was also really good. I would definitely go back!

After grilling a local for the best BBQ (which is 30 minutes out of town in Lockhart, TX at either Kreuz or Smitty's) I found out that the same person who taught Franklin BBQ, also taught Mueller/La Barbecue, and Blue Ox. There was some drama...More
