Brisket a little tough, but great flavor. Sausage on point today, overall 4.5/5 and delicious. Pro tip: spicy rice and mac and cheese for sides

Amazing all the way around ... Missed the beef ribs again! Got to get here extra early for the beef ribs

My first time to Miller's Smokehouse. The sausage is outstanding (4.8/5.0), Chicken (4.5/5.0), Ribs (4.3/5.0) and Brisket (4.3/5.0) are all very good and the desserts are out of this world - we had Hurricane cake, Southern Pecan Praline cake, apple cobbler and home made cookies.

You have to know how it works to order. They will move you along. Good moist brisket. Nice and salty like the beans. Pork rib was good as well. Lacking some smoke.

I really enjoyed this place it reminds me of the 183 Flat Country Store, sausage was the best of ribs, and brisket.

Love this place! Close to home and serves up quality meat with great smoke, flavor and ambience. Clean, organized and great Texas music to make you feel right at home.

Lined up at 1230 and already sold or of everything but links... Maybe next time!

There’s a trailer in East Austin that is creating a new target for what it means to be a complete barbecue joint. Micklethwait Craft Meats not only serves great smoked meats, they also bake their own bread and desserts, all the sides and sauce are homemade, and they start with dry beans from a sack rather than from a can. As if the time required to make great barbecue wasn’t already a big enough hurdle,…
