franklin barbeque is in a trailer just south of 38 1/2 street, on the I-35 frontage road, and it is probably the best brisket i have had in austin!! no lie, i really wanted to just keep eating, but glutton is a sin people! the owner must be a believer because i am sure we are going to have that in heaven! the brisket was that good! we also had some pulled pork, also very tasty! i did not try it personally, but i heard the ribs were not that great. there are four different sauces to choose from, but i just taste tested them because the meat needed no sauce! seriously!
we got there right at 11:00am when it opened and there was already a line. be ready to wait a bit, it is not a quick place to eat. but hey, it is worth it! there are lots of picnic tables with umbrellas for shade. and i heard the owner say he was going to buy outdoor fans today. so if you want some delicious brisket in austin, try out franklin barbecue! the trailers win again!
