Love the brisket.
Get here by 915 and wait until 130... No thanks
You can place a preorder about a month in advance by emailing them (check the website for the date/time specifics) if you really want to avoid the line.
Holy shit. The hype is ALL true. Worth the multi hour wait in line. Recommend the brisket and pulled pork.
Fatty brisket. You won't be disappoint
Get there before 7:45am so you can be in the shade, under the building while you wait. Bring a chair, bring water, bring beer, bring a snack...yes a snack. You'll be waiting for 3 plus hours.
This is the Vatican of bbq! Best in the country for meat worship!
1 of the 2 most famous and loved bbq joints in Texas
Always sold out! Why even bother..
You don't have license (pseudo or otherwise) to speak on barbecue unless you've eaten here. Don't miss the beef ribs on Saturdays.
Totally worth the wait. Bring line drinks for the time outside.
The only reason you come here is for brisket
The hype is real. Moist brisket is what you come for. Guaranteed to melt in your mouth.
Worth the wait for the melt in your mouth brisket. And experience.
While I do enjoy a variety of barbecue joints, special guests and special occasions demand Franklin. The brisket is awesome, but don't kid yourself -- you can't miss no matter what you get here.
The long line was definitely worth it. The staff is super nice and makes you feel so comfortable. I will definitely come back
Try everything. Not just the brisket. smoked turkey was drenched in butter. Heavenly
Featured on Unique Eats. The BBQ looks rather good.
Closed July 20-30
The brisket,and the ribs !!!
Get the brisket fatty, it's amazing.
Brisket💯. Ribs💯. The National Beer of Texas💯.
Tipsy Texan is perfect
Franklin bbq owner Aaron Franklin won Best Chef: Southwest Honors at the 25th annual James Beard Awards (2015). Congrats Chef🍴
Turkey, brisket, sausage and definitely the pies!
Everything is so good, but you can't visit Texas without brisket.
Get there as early as you can- 2 hours before opening was not guaranteed any food.
Best food ever
Everything! Tried the brisket lean and fatty, it is delicious as well as the beans.
Best BBQ In The Nation!!!
Famed for being some of the best BBQ in Austin. Franklins does not disappoint! Be prepared to food coma. Found here: http://supper.mx/places/franklin-bbq-austin/
Brisket!!!! SOOOOOOO TENDER! Best bbq place I've ever been to hands down
Words can't express how good this is.
Brisket & Pulled Pork. That's all they had left.
Place a big order ahead of time to avoid waiting in line ;)
Turkey & brisket are my fave meat options. Sides are aight. Great people working the line!
best brisket of your life
the brisket and sausages are a must, the ribs are also amazing but pulled pork wasn't too memorable. crazy talk but it's true--the 5+ hour long wait is worth it.
Fatty brisket is the obvious choice, but the pulled pork, ribs & sausage are great as well. Be sure to get a few bourbon banana pies for dessert.
The tipsy Texan is amazing! Very filling! Went thursday around 230- not quite sold out ;-)
We got to try a prime rib that was absolutely heavenly and the brisket was definitely the best, just amazing, mouthwatering meat, juicy and meltingly tender with smokey flavor and a nice crust.
best brisket ive ever tasted. can pass on the pulled pork though. delicious sides as well.
Top 5 bbq I've had in my life.
Get there at least 30 minutes before they OPEN
Good lunch spot, but get here early b/c it sells out
Tip if you want to skip the line: ask if they have any packaged brisket. You can get 5lbs to feed 10-20 and you can walk right to the front at 10 am. Heat it up at home in a big stock pot.
Everything is delicious and the hospitality is just as warm as the brisket!!
Worth the wait
Brisket was worth the wait
