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.

Ate late lunch this afternoon. Thorndale sausage and smoked turkey. Sausage fair. Turkey pretty good. Not a real fan of the sauce. 3 stars at best.

Went for dinner. Not sure if it was due to the later hour (7pm), but lean brisket was cold, dry and tough. Moist brisket was pretty good and ribs were better. Sides are really good, especially the corn casserole. People are cool and they have one of the better beer selections you'll find.

Everything is tremendous today. The sausage is full of the flavor, the brisket is moist, and the ribs are smoky and tender. So good.

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….
