Franklin Barbecue


In the course of just a year or so, Aaron Franklin and his team have created a must-stop destination on the Austin barbecue trail. My friends in town say the locals have all moved on to La Barbecue, due to the ridiculous lines though (you need to get there by 8 a.m. if you want to eat anything, and the place doesn’t open until 11 a.m.). But if you do manage to try the brisket, ribs, turkey or hot links, you won’t be sorry, just a little groggy from standing all morning. Dessert tip: do try the bourbon banana pie.
