La Barbecue

While everyone (mostly out-of-owners) goes gaga for Franklin, locals know that La Barbecue, named for LeAnn Mueller, is just as good, if not better than Franklin (mostly because the line isn’t as ridiculously long). Pit master John Lewis knows how to slowly coax the best from brisket and ribs by low, slow smoking, and while the restaurant isn’t much more than a trailer and a few tables, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better representation of Austin barbecue.
