Franklin Barbecue: One of Austin’s Best Barbecue Spots

April 23, 2014 11:05 am

If the crowds of people waiting in line to enjoy classic Texas barbecue are any indication, Franklin Barbecue is not to be missed. Fans of the place say their brisket is well worth waiting in line for – and the proof is that the eatery sells out of it every day. You can order yours by the pound, on a plate with sides, or in a sandwich.

Barbecue Ribs, Pulled Pork, Sausage, and Turkey are also on the menu here. Delightful side dishes are the hallmark of any good barbecue joint, and Franklin Barbecue offers those, too. Potato Salad, Pinto Beans and Coleslaw are on the menu, as are little four-inch pies for dessert. Flavors include Bourbon Banana, Pecan, Key Lime, and Lemon Chess.

Need a gift for a devoted barbecue fan? Get them a Franklin Barbecue T-shirt, hat or some yummy sauce to enjoy at home.

Franklin Barbecue is open Tuesdays through Sundays, in a spot not too far from Windsor on the Lake.
