east austin: Bon Appetit Magazine Names Franklin Barbecue The Best In America - 07/02/11 05:24 AM
If you want to start a good fight, go to a region of the country, and claim that someone serves the best food, that is synonymous for that area. This happened to me, when I claimed that Franklin Barbecue had the best brisket I ever had. Friends questioned my judgment, office mates second guessed me, and friends from other areas in the country had their own opinions on what constituted the best kind of barbecue. After all, Franklin served their barbecue out of a trailer, 

Now the folks over at Bon Appetit Magazine, who know a few things about food, … (28 comments)

east austin: Franklin Barbecue: East Austin's Trailer Barbecue - 09/24/10 04:36 AM
Trailer eateries have become all the rage around the country. Austin has been leading the way in that craze, and East Austin is no exception. One of the best, is the much talked about Franklin Barbecue. The owner, Aaron Franklin started out barbecuing in his backyard, and transferred that cooking to the trailer at 3421 N H I 35. Word of mouth spread, and in little over half a year, Franklin has become one of the better options for barbecue in central Texas. For me it's the best.

 
Where do I start? If there is a better made brisket in town, I'm yet to find it. … (20 comments)
