A little holiday weekend feast..we told ours to go & the brisket uncut to maintain moisture---it was perfect, great bark and pepper taste to the melt in your mouth brisket. But the special surprise today were the pork ribs. Don't miss the potatoe salad, some secret ingredient (blue cheese? Sour cream?) makes it exceptional. & while it doesn't need it, the sauce is perfect--better than Louis Mueller's, which has been my long time favorite. Highly recommend.

Stopped in for some Q and left fully sated. Got the fatty brisket, spicy sausage, and pork ribs. All were fantastic; kick from sausage was awesome. Sides okay, loved the Q sauce. Another fine austin Q establishment.

Great brisket and potato salad. Definitely in my top three all time BBQ's! The place has a great feel with a staff that is quick, courteous and ready to educate.

Came here with the family for dinner. Brisket cooked perfect and tasted great. I would have liked a bit more spice and salt in the rub. Pork loin was tender and tasty. Pork ribs were very good nice and peppery. I never cared for their turkey but I think they are using a different type of breast because it was delicious. You have to try the Mac & cheese and corn pudding. Kids loved it!!

The brisket was the big winner today. Beautiful crust with a thick ring. Enough fat to keep it moist and with lots of flavor. They topped off my order with what must have been a half pound of burnt end and I got a free beer cause the one I paid for kicked the keg. Love the switch.

This place comes with rock-solid credentials: The pitmaster, Lance Kirkpatrick, worked under Bobby Mueller at Taylor’s Louie Mueller Barbecue for nine years. Following that, he briefly succumbed to the lure of a fine-dining kitchen, but last year Austin entrepreneur Shane Stiles beckoned Kirkpatrick to the pits once again. We’re grateful he did. Only a year after taking over the corner of a little shopping center, Kirkpatrick seems to have the hang of his surroundings. A…

Austin has traditionally been a jumping off point for barbecue trips to famous towns like Lockhart, Luling, Taylor, and Llano. Great barbecue seems to surround Austin, but the city has been getting a reputation of its own as a barbecue destination. Some have even started to question if there’s a need to trek the forty-five minutes from Austin to Lockhart. Franklin Barbecue started these questions, and the Austin crowd got louder after John Mueller’s return….
