Bucket list trip

We were blessed to visit Franklins BBQ in Austin.

Let me share a few thoughts before answering the BIG question,

"is it really THAT good?"

Our April 1st trip to Franklin BBQ was no joke ;0)

The Employees,

We talked to were delightfully well trained and projected that hipster image 

tattoos, piercings, hair colors and beards….

FUN people.

Arron Franklin was on location but we didn't see him.

Likely if he comes out of the kitchen/office it takes an hour to get out of the dinning room

everyone would want a picture

The Line

We arrived at 830 AM for the 11 AM opening, there were 30 people in front of us.

Everyone we met was in a festive mood. Not all were BBQ fanatics,

some just happened to be in Austin and were told "you have to go" 

We actually got into the resturant at 1215 ish

met with classic country music,

tables that would have been at home in my grand mothers kitchen

and wonderful smells

oh so wonderful

I was surprised to learn Franklins only serves to 300 to 350 a day 

Then they run out

Ordering 

I posted the videos I made below

We ordered lots of food for the InLaws out OutLaws

You can get wrapped and bagged brisket for take home if your in the early group 

Wrapping in paper and shopping bags wasn't the best way to get the food home

The Food 

The Sides

The potato salad and coleslaw were outstanding, the pinto beans not my favorite style

The Meats

Ribs un sauced well smoked full sized spares... good

Turkey, Smoked sliced breast moist …Outstanding 

eat the turkey there it drys out quickly 

Links, nothing special.. good but wouldn't order again

Brisket Smoked in that distinctive Texas style post oak flavor… Outstanding 

I've had brisket in many styles and enjoyed them all in their own way 

Franklins is a outstanding representation of the Texas style

All in all it was a great experience 

Check that off the bucket list
