Foursquare Tips

  • Really laid back, great bbq and I love the picnic vibes! Awesome recommendation from Supper:
  • The Kerlins are newbies, but have made a strong showing right off the bat: They use sweet-smelling pecan wood and crank out pork ribs and sausage to die for.
  • Brisket was great, as was the banana pudding
  • The brisket, duh. All the sides are good too!
  • Ran out of brisket so I tried the pork shoulder, it was quite excellent. Sauce is a spicy vinegar base and it made for a good reasonably priced sammich. Can always use another good BBQ place!
  • The pork ribs and sausage are unreal. Pass on the coleslaw, it's made with cheese and too heavy for a hot summer day.
  • Brisket, pork ribs, blue cheese slaw, jalapeo dill potato salad all delicious
  • Jalapeo fill potato salad is to die for. Pro tip: order tacos at Veracruz and while they're cooking up stand in line at Kerlin
  • Worth sitting outside in the heat for this meat. Cool off with a glass of Topo-Chico and get the brisket!
  • Brisket. Holy cow.
  • Brisket brisket brisket. So good.
  • Fall off the bone pork ribs, beef sausage with great snap and flavor, and moist brisket with tasty bark. No line at noon on a Friday. Will have to come in morning for kolaches next time.
  • Brisket kolaches are pretty much amazing.
  • The ribs and pulled pork are the stars + the owners are the nicest people ever. IMO the brisket needs work to stand up to the local competition.
  • Brisket is fantastic and moist. The pork rib falls off the bone. However, I am not a fan of the sauce. Will still come back again and again.
  • Kerlin not Merlin Apple spellcheck!!!!!!!
  • Y'all can keep Franklin. Kerlin BBQ has great: Beef Ribs, Pork Ribs, Brisket, Sides, Banana Cream, & Big Red. Happy Ex-Texan.
  • Best pork ribs I've ever had.
  • Brisket moist with good flavor and nice smoke ring. Sausage was okay, nothing special.
  • Beef ribs were excellent!
