We tried this place based on reviews plus we cannot wait that long to eat at Franklin’s. We arrived around 2pm not sure if it’s way better but we waited around an hour. We can say we are lucky because the brisket left was less than 5 lbs. Run out of beef and pork ribs. We were so hungry then that outer excitement dwindled down . Better go there not hungry .. well brisket — was so good but coming from Memphis our pulled pork still the best.. also the sausages — chipotle and regular were good too!!! But didn’t loved the beans ..

We waited for an hour and a half to get served but worth the wait. Great BBQ- get a beer while you are waiting and the time will pass!

As I stood in line, the thought did cross my mind that this place may just be hyped up for the sake of catching the ACL tourists, but I was so glad to have been wrong! The brisket was smoky and satisfying, the sausage had the perfect spices and a great snap to the casing, the local beers were spot on. Take an afternoon, take some friends and some cash, and spend time in the BBQ moment.

I’m not exactly sure what they put in the coleslaw besides.barbeque sauce but yuck! Out of 30 people that were eating the rest of the delicious barbecue no one liked the coleslaw. I don’t think anyone had more than a bite or two.

Stood in line 40 minutes to eat this BBQ for lunch. Food was great! They have a little market to buy beer, wine, chips, etc as add ons. Very authentic Texas BBQ, quality meat, mild sauce, southern style sides. They need to organize their cash register system better (one person taking orders from the very long line while the cooks stood around waiting to fulfill and the rest of the staff looked on) but I think they might like the look of the line out the door. Still worth a visit when in Austin.
