Franklin Barbeque

Franklin Barbeque
900 E 11th St
Austin TX 78702
With a line of patrons that starts around 6:00 or 7:00 in the morning, Franklin Barbecue is one of the most renowned barbecue joints in Austin. Patrons wait in a friendly and entertaining line for hours until the restaurant's opening at 11:00 to order off of a simple yet classic menu of smoked favorites until the coveted food sells out. The brisket is by far the fan favorite and sells out every single day.
