We went late in the day so they were sold out of some things. The brisket and turkey were incredibly moist. Best turkey that I had in a very long time!!! The chocolate and banana pudding is to die for!

Diablo sandwich was a good choice

Excellent brisket and spicy sausage,and the sides are distinctly better than your typical BBQ fare. I will be back!

Aggies get a free koozie! Pork ribs were awesome. Incredible flavor and smoke, clung to the bone but super tender. Brisket was a smidge dry, but had a great smoke ring and good peppery crust. Thorndale sausage is peppery and house made. Bit of a kick, but a bit mushy for my personal preference.

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.

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….
