Franklin Barbecue

Austin, US

Award-winning pitmaster Aaron Franklin started out with a food trailer selling brisket. Today, Franklin Barbecue is one of Texas’ finest and most popular barbecue purveyors. Retaining the open-until-it’s-gone philosophy in the bricks-and-mortar establishment, pork and beef form the naturally protein-heavy menu. Order ribs and brisket by the pound and add sides such as classic coleslaw or potato salad; pulled pork and turkey sandwiches are also on the menu. Pull up a red diner-style chair, if it’s available, in this usually busy establishment and pig out.
