If you love Franklin Barbecue in Texas as much as the rest of America does, you’ll be happy to learn the dining room has finally reopened after a 20-month hiatus due to the pandemic. The world-famous Austin outpost is easily the most popular BBQ joint in the state, so secure a spot in line and prepare to enter foodie heaven.
