This Iconic Barbecue Joint In Texas Was Just Named The Best In The State

If there’s one thing we know here in Texas, it’s barbecue. There are almost too many good BBQ joints throughout the state to decide where to eat first! The famous Franklin Barbecue in Austin should be at the very top of your list, just like it was for Texas Monthly. You might have to wait a few hours since it’s so popular, but trust me, it’s well worth it. You’ll be hard-pressed to find meat of this quality anywhere else in the state (and possibly the country).

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
