Any local in Austin will tell you point-blank: If you want the absolute best BBQ, you need to go at least 30 minutes outside of town. This spot is worth the haul. Come hungry.

When ordering the brisket, order it moist not lean. Also the earlier you go the better as they will run out of popular items.

The place is charred with years of accumulating smoke. The thickly crusted brisket easily passes the "doesnt-need-sauce test with flying colors! Closes when they run out of food, so get there early!

It don't get any better. Feel free to go south of Austin but I'm telling you Mueller's the best, hands down. Come for the brisket (order moist) but don't overlook the sausage. Along with some buddies

Mueller's brisket is really flavorful. The smoke-tinged walls in this former school gym provide a peeled-paint backdrop for the gold standard of Texas barbecue.

Most enormous beef rib I have ever seen. Those and the pork ribs are the best things here.

The brisket and jalapeo sausage is a sure winner! One of the top 5 BBQ places in Texas.

The brisket is exceptional - crunchy bark, deep ring, succulent meat - and the dry sausage in a league of its own. Also, you must try the dipping sauce.

My favorite of the classic BBQ joints

BBQ the way the god's intended. Moist beef brisket, chopped beef samich peach cobbler to pick up after the meal and wash it all down with an RC Cola...HEAVEN!

A special treat if you get here early enough: the smoked ribeye.

Everything here is AMAZING! 2nd best BBQ in the state. If you haven't been here, get here.

Undisputed king of beef ribs.

Thrillist Top BBQ List: Some of the best brisket on the planet. Lesser-known fact is that it also has some of the best beef ribs in the world, which are like the ones Fred Flintstone eats

Best in the world. Big Red FTW.
