What a relief to find good BBQ right here, deep in the land of boudin and Popeye's. Nothing fancy, crammed in the corner of an otherwise nondescript gas station, but still...really good ribs and pulled pork, pretty good sausage, passable sauce, and a place to sit and eat. Life is good.
Entirely forgettable. Wondered why they were cutting the bark off the brisket until I tried some. Flavorless, tough, chewy, and inedible in places. Brisket was tender but flavorless, spare ribs had no smoke flavor at all. Sides from the Sysco tub. Wouldn't recommend.
A lot of hype here. Brisket okay. Must was definitely the better of the lean. However it is served cubed. Not much of any smoked flavor. Good pepper taste though. Beef ribs come 3 doubles in the order and were flavorful but they dunk them fully in BBQ sauce. If like tons of sauce then this is place for you. If like ribs dry, out of luck. Cole slaw great with mayo base. Waffle fries also good with paprika on top.
This was stop number 3 on my 2008 journey to eat at all the Top 50. The owners were working on the building when I visited and wondered what I was doing when taking pics. Compared to BBQ in that area of south Texas it wasn't bad, but I feel TM highly overrated them.
I ate here before an interview in For Worth a while ago.To me it was just average. Nothing stood out as far as flavor. It seems like they play it safe.
This place was difficult to find especially when it got dark. But it was worth the trip I made a while ago to eat there links and brisket. It could of used a little more smoke but it was still decent. Pretty good for Marlin TX. Next time I'm in the area I will go back.
I went here for lunch today and for two people the bill was $30. Just as high as the original place in llano. I had a brisket and sausage combo with a side is slaw. The brisket was moist and was seasoned well, in fact I ate the cold leftovers while at my desk and was shocked how good it was cold. The sausage was nothing special.
Not bad for BBQ joint in an old Dairy Queen. The ribs were good and the brisket sandwich had a surprisingly good flavor.
The name is catchy, that's about it..
I heard this place was good but when I tried it I was let down. The ribs and brisket were tough.
It used to be really good, my Aunt ur to always brag about it. When I tried it I was not too impressed.
It was ok.
One of my favorites. Great smoke flavored brisket and ribs. Chicken and sausage are great as well. The pitmaster is great to talk to and will always give you the best. Also one of the greatest peach cobblers I have ever tasted.
The brisket had this amazing tough as flavorful bark to it. Almost like a candy coating.
The price was high but the food was good.
Amazing ribs as well!!!!!
The only place where I have ate BBQ at 8 in the morning, and it was great!!!!!! Ribs were tender but not over cooked and even the lean cut of brisket was moist. There sausage was great and the sauce added to the flavor instead of covering it up. You must eat here.
Great place for BBQ. Flavorful brisket and great sausage. The best place to buy fresh sausage and smoke it yourself. If your going for lunch on a weekday get there early because they run out.
This was a true meat market instead of a BBQ joint. I had to move from my seat so the owner could get to a deer he processed for a customer. I got there too late to try most of it. Will have to go again for a better review.
Everything was great about Franklin's except the wait. Way too long in the Texas heat but they will sell you some Lone Star in the parking lot. Great food but long wait so plan ahead. You must experience this place at least once.
Brisket was OK, but the sausage was greasy and swelled like it had been boiled.
Not too impressed by this one. If you go to a BBQ joint for the atmosphere and sitting outside then this is the place. The have this open pit where the meat is kept warm but that is all for show. If you go for the meat you may be disappointed. The BBQ sauce was orange and reminded me of a dressed up Heinze 57 sauce.
Just OK. I heard they changed owners and that's when it went downhill
I have been coming here since I was a child and by far this is my favorite Sausage. That is all I usually get sausage bread and sauce. You can just dip bread in the sauce and eat it like that. My mother always told me about the lamb ribs and I finally tried them. A little fatty but very tender and good. One tip, squeeze the grease out of the sausage if you don't get the dry ones.
Highly disappointed the last time I went. Waited in line for a while just to get some rubbery brisket. It was either rushed or reheated.
Not a fan of the sausage but everything else is great. This is a place for the BBQ traditionalist just salt, pepper meat and smoke. They now have BBQ sauce but I was good without it. If you want to try something different get the smoked pork chops, but you will need to share it with a friend if you want to try everything else.
Not good at all. In fact I don't see he this place stays in business with City Market across the street. I guess bad BBQ even has its fans.
This is good BBQ. Brisket is tender and full of flavor, the ribs were the best I have ever had. The ribs had a sweet honey taste to them that did not take away from the smoke or BBQ taste. The sausage was OK but was a far third to the ribs and brisket.
Good quick lunch. Brisket and ribs were seasoned well and had a decent smoke flavor. Not too bad
They should remove BBQ from the name. It should just be Bill Millers. The only thing I get here is the breakfast tacos.
