Hands down the best BBQ in the nation. You should probably order a wide spread of meat but that brisket...always be sure to include brisket. They are so popular, the line starts forming by 8 with doors opening at 11 and food running out in the early afternoon. Be prepared to wait a few hours, but know it's worth the wait.

Believe the hype. Humble, friendly and unbelievably tasty barbecue in Austin. If you want to eat here expect to queue for a few hours, but the warm reception and camaraderie make it fun. Worth it. http://www.jenography.net/2013/09/is-franklin-barbecue-really-the-best-in-the-world/

Try to go around 1:30 pm, if you want to try to and avoid a LONG line. They might be sold out of something, but you are sure to get a bite to eat regardless. This is the best BBQ I have ever tasted, and I consider myself a seasoned veteran on the scene.

One of the iconic BBQ places mentioned in every TV food special on BBQ in the US! It's worth going at least once in your life, but you definitely have to plan to get there early and wait in line before they open. They close when they sell out and sometimes they can sell out as early as 2PM! Their ribs are good, but I think everyone comes here for the brisket. Definitely get the fatty brisket! And try all their sauces!

The best BBQ in Austin, hands down. We arrived at 14.00 and there was a "sold out" sign hanging at the door. Because some locals told us that didn't mean there wasn't any food left, we entered and after waiting in line for something like 10 minutes, we were still able to place an order. Not everyrhing was there anymore, but the brisket sandwich that we ordered as well as the sausage were both outstanding. The crew is very friendly to the customers and take some extra time to explain things about the food, the way it is prepared and a little history of Franklin to visitors from other cities and countries. Franklin BBQ is a dining experience you will remember. Surely highest recommendations!!Recommended for:History Buffs

Excellent, excellent BBQ. However... that line? Really? And then you're not even guaranteed that they will have the tasty beef, sausage or pork you crave. They are KNOWN for running out. 2 hour line and no guarantees? Not this girl. I'd rather get BBQ at Rudy's and spend the balance of the time exploring Austin. Of course if someone else is willing to wait in line and pick it up- I happy to buy.
