The place was top notch and had the best beef rib that I had the pleasure of partaking in since my inception. The owner is a living legend and the food is otherworldly. What is better than free beer with great's the answer if you don't know.....nothing!!!!

Update: This joint is CLOSED. Pitmaster John Mueller was unceremoniously relieved of his duties by his sister LeAnn Mueller who owns the place. She has reopened with the new name La Barbecue. I’ll give the new joint a try next time I’m in Austin. 2012: After several visits and bringing a dining companion by the name of Anthony Bourdain and his camera crew with me for a meat fest at John Mueller’s place a few…
