Thrillist Top BBQ List: Some of the best brisket on the planet. Lesser-known fact is that it also has some of the best beef ribs in the world, which are like the ones Fred Flintstone eats
Best in the world. Big Red FTW.
Great atmosphere. Very good BBQ. One of my favorite old school places.
Great brisket but my favorite was the beef rib. Over a pound and delicious.
Math department lunch time
Most enormous beef rib I have ever seen. Those and the pork ribs are the best things here.
My favorite of the classic BBQ joints
The brisket and jalapeño sausage is a sure winner! One of the top 5 BBQ places in Texas.
Just so good! Get there early for the best selection! When they run out, it's gone
Get the beef rib and split it. It is a good 1.5-2lbs of meat.
Amazing turkey and beans. Fantastic brisket. Always get moist.
The beef rib and brisket is simply the best in the world.
The place is charred with years of accumulating smoke. The thickly crusted brisket easily passes the "doesn’t-need-sauce test” with flying colors! Closes when they run out of food, so get there early!
Just had a fire a week ago but up & running again. Thank goodness, I'm starving!
You can call in an order for dine in, but they still make you wait in line to pick it up.

The beef ribs are HEAVEN!!!
It don't get any better. Feel free to go south of Austin but I'm telling you Mueller's the best, hands down. Come for the brisket (order moist) but don't overlook the sausage. Along with some buddies
My brisket was very dry. Their bbq sauce it's runny, like you've never seen before. Salt lick is way better, and just a few miles away.
BBQ the way the god's intended. Moist beef brisket, chopped beef samich peach cobbler to pick up after the meal and wash it all down with an RC Cola...HEAVEN!
The brisket is exceptional - crunchy bark, deep ring, succulent meat - and the dry sausage in a league of its own. Also, you must try the dipping sauce.
A special treat if you get here early enough: the smoked ribeye.
The best I've had so far. A perfect bark of pepper encrusts the meat. Not too salty. The beef ribs and brisket are unparalleled. Beef sausages were excellent. Even the peach cobbler was spot on.
When ordering the brisket, order it moist not lean. Also the earlier you go the better as they will run out of popular items.
Any local in Austin will tell you point-blank: If you want the absolute best BBQ, you need to go at least 30 minutes outside of town. This spot is worth the haul. Come hungry.
