    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

    Great brisket but my favorite was the beef rib. Over a pound and delicious.

    Most enormous beef rib I have ever seen. Those and the pork ribs are the best things here.

    The brisket and jalapeño sausage is a sure winner! One of the top 5 BBQ places in Texas.

    Get the beef rib and split it. It is a good 1.5-2lbs of meat.

    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!

    You can call in an order for dine in, but they still make you wait in line to pick it up.

    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.

    Mueller's brisket is really flavorful. The smoke-tinged walls in this former school gym provide a peeled-paint backdrop for the gold standard of Texas barbecue. Read more

    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.
