Get to Franklin Barbecue early or plan on leaving empty handed. 2011 Austin Rising Star Chef Aaron Franklin’s sublime Texas-style barbecue—it’s all about the beef and dry rub here—usually sells out by 2pm each day. Around 11am, lines start forming at the modest cinderblock building, and for those lucky enough to get a taste, Franklin offers bucket-list-worthy brisket, house-made sausage, pork butt, and ribs. The sides are Southern standards: slaw, beans, potato salad, and squishy white bread (for build-your-own sandwiches).
