AVOID FRANKLIN BBQ at all costs. YOU WILL NEVER ENJOY BRISKET ANYWHERE ELSE AGAIN. I'm a brisket pig - could eat it every day. Since Franklin's, all other briskets taste...lame. I GOTTA HAVE MORE MORE
For the meat eaters amongst us: this is the best bbq in the world. You will have to wait an hour for your food but don't fret, you will be satisfied. Pro tip: try the brisket
This roadside mobile restaurant doesn't merely churn out some of the best barbecue on the block, it makes some of the best brisket, ribs and pulled pork in the entire country. Fatty Brisket is a must.
The hype is absolutely for real: this is the best BBQ in the U.S. You can't go wrong regardless of what you choose, but the brisket is the MVP of the lineup. But get here early, they will sell out.
They produce what has quickly become one of Austin's, if not Texas', most talked-about barbecue. It's so good they regularly run out of meat shortly after opening: get there early. [Eater 38 Member]
Bethany of Best Coast is obsessed with Franklin Barbecue. Try their brisket and you won’t be sorry.
Anthony Bourdain says Its a religious experience #noreservations
Bring foldable chairs, get here around 9a, order a lot, & don't bring annoying ppl = enjoyable experience.
Franklin's brisket will change your life.
Best fatty brisket (the moist) and best brisket I've ever had. Period.
Get Everything: You've waited in line for over two hours to get the food. Our advice is to load up. Barbecue reheats well, and the last thing you want is to run out of food and have to wait again.
One time I ate a whole pound of super moist brisket, a sausage, and a side of beans at this place. Then I promptly threw it up in the airplane bathroom. Eat here. But don't do that.
Wait on line for the best BBQ in Austin - it's WORTH it!! Best brisket of a BBQ junkie's life
1. fatty brisket. 2. pulled pork. 3. ribs. maybe a sausage or two... go home and hit yourself if you order turkey or lean brisket. get some slaw and the bean stuff.
BEST BBQ in the WORLD! Better get in line by 10 am before they sell out, usually by 1 or 2. Better yet, if you're in the neighborhood and the line is not too long, make a detour.
Get here early - they open at 11am and run out by 1.30pm!
The raves are true, the brisket here is as good as you're going to find on the planet.
If you are on death row and they ask you what you want for your last meal - make it Franklin Barbecue.
When they say keep Austin Weird just come here and view the people in line aound 10:30. You won't be disappointed. And the food is amazing as well. Also CNN was here on October 9, 2012 filming.
This place is a must visit. Excellent brisket and ribs. The Bourbon Banana pie -- killer finish to an awesome meal.
Originally a trailer, this brick-and-mortar BBQ in East Austin has super-fine brisket plus pulled pork and other exceptional simple smoked meats. Opens at 11 am and closes whenever the eats run out.
Best brisket, period!
Franklin’s BBQ has become an Austin legend. Be aware that there is always a line but it is well worth the wait. Bon Appetit named them Best BBQ in America last year. Try it and you’ll understand.
Amazing brisket and ribs! Friendly staff!!!
Get there early and prepare to wait in line. It's all worth it!
This is where God eats!
Get. Here. Early.
One of the few places in the world that I don't mind waiting for food. Worth it.
this is the best bbq in the world
While there is a large debate over the best BBQ in Austin, line up early in the morning at Franklin and let the brisket speak for itself.
You’ll find some of Texas’s finest brisket here, at this finger licking good BBQ joint.
Slow-smoking the brisket for up to 15 hours leads to barbecue on par with, and sometimes even better than, some of the storied Hill Country joints.
All the meats are available as sandwiches, and if you want to go the sandwich route, we suggest the Tipsy Texan, which gives you a pile of beef and sausage along with some kraut in a buttered bun.
Arrive at least an hour before they open. The line forms early.
This is the "Phantom Menace" of bar b q joints. Bring your lawn chair and camp out the night before.
Get there by 10am at the latest if you want food.
Try the Brisket, Pulled Pork, Sausage & Pork Ribs - The BEST BBQ in Texas!
May be the best BBQ I've ever had!!
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.
Everything is awesome but have to get there early before running out of food ... country best bbq:-)
Bbq is off the hook!!!
Get the brisket!
Get there early and take a chair. Loved the ribs and turkey. Brisket and sausage were good. Didn't get to try the pulled pork. 8-(
The best brisket I have ever had. Super super moist. Ribs fall off the none and have great seasoning. Turkey is also very moist. Definitely worth the wait.
Some of the best BBQ around, but consider how many other Amazing BBQ joints around The capital of Texas you could drive to in the time it would take you. saint sauce be with you.
