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!!

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….
