Has anybody been to Franklins BBQ in Austin? I'm looking to go there but what are the wait times like? I heard it was quite busy..
From a post I made on another thread about a year ago on the same subject,Has anybody been to Franklins BBQ in Austin? I'm looking to go there but what are the wait times like? I heard it was quite busy..
It is indeed a small world.My cousin is a Pitmaster at Franklin's. An article was written about him and the thousands of briskets that he has cooked at Franklin's. He grew up in our family BBQ'ing. I haven't eaten at Franklin's just because of the wait, but would like to go just to see if there is a difference in taste compared to when our Dad's cooked together.
The famous Franklin stack is a lewis creation...I don't think I would wait in the line although I'm sure it's great. I was born in Texas and grew up in KC so have been to a lot of good bbq places that were busy but no multiple hour lines..... no thanks. I was in Charleston SC a couple of years ago and went to Lewis BBQ. John Lewis worked with Franklin and is pretty well known in his own right. I was the best brisket I've ever had. I think there are alternatives to Franklin that are just as good without all the hype.
