Franklin BBQ, an East Austin hotspot, is nationally known for its famous BBQ. Aaron Franklin who started this powerhouse barbeque joint, is an Austin legend. He’s an author and TV star…and loved by everyone he meets. The line is long, but don’t be deterred, the food is worth it. Feel free to bring your own beer while waiting and consider packing a chair or card game [unless it’s during a Covid Pandemic]. Once you are eating the line will be a distant memory because Franklin BBQ serves up some of the best brisket in the country.
