    Book your trip now. Pro tip: get up early and get a good spot in line. Being first in line was a blast and worth the extra wait.

    Final prognosis: The line at Franklin is a friendly fun experience. The employees do an amazing job explaining everything to the customers and they keep the process moving. Its definitely a well oiled machine. Getting there early is definitely reccomend to get your choice of meats. As for the food itself, the brisket is as amazing as everyone says that it is. It is the perfect level of tenderness, and the bark from the rub is excellent. The ribs are melt in your mouth tender and easily bite right off the bones. The pulled pork is succulent and is made even better with Franklin's Espresso barbecue sauce. The turkey is moist, but compared to the other meats, it's just ok. As for the sides and desserts, the cole slaw is a perfect cold creamy balance to all of the rich barbecue meats. The beans are spicy, but perfectly cooked and are made even better by the burnt brisket ends that are part of the recipe. The potato salad is too much dill pickel flavor for my personal tastes, but I'm sure most people would enjoy it. As for the pies, the Bourbon Banana is delicious and definitely represents both flavors very well. My pie had at lest a half dozen slices of fresh banana in the filling. The pecan pie was also really good and probably one of the best I've tasted actually. All in all, Franklin's Barbecue was an amazing experience and should not be missed if you find yourself in Austin Texas.

    Enjoy! I went last fall and it was one of the best meals of my life. The turkey was my second favorite behind the brisket. But of course get some of everything.

    Nice! Let us know what you think!

    Also, try to make it down too Lockhart. It is an amazing BBQ town that can't be missed if you are in that area.

    It's currently 9:30 am central time. The restaurant is open for drinks/bathrooms/merchandise. They are working their way through the line to take meat orders so as to gauge how much product is being sold. The line is into the parking lot now. I purchased my tshirt, and asked about seeing the smokers. They take people back in small groups once the first wave of food orders have been served. Approximately 12pm central time.
