Lists & rankings



  • When ordering the brisket, order it moist not lean. Also the earlier you go the better as they will run out of popular items.
  • 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.
  • 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 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!
  • If you have limited time for lunch, call us at 512-352-6206 and place your order for pick-up. In most cases, your order will be ready for you in only :15 minutes.
  • The short rib near-molten meat contained by a crust of black pepper and still attached to an imposing bone still sets the standard for Lone Star barbecue every single day.
  • Straight up Texas bbq, no frills but just as delicious
  • My favorite of the classic BBQ joints
  • Travelers Advisory... As we do tend to sell out of menu items, we recommend travelers call us in advance of their arrival at 512-352-6206 to reserve their favorite meat(s).
  • 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.
  • A special treat if you get here early enough: the smoked ribeye.
  • Food here is great, but they use too much pepper on the meat. Desserts are wonderful!
  • Mueller's is true Texas BBQ. The room is smokey, the brisket is moist, and the community is welcoming. A great spot for lunch out of city limits Get their early once the meat runs out they're closed.
  • Brisket, potato salad, and cole slaw. Even at the end of the day.
  • La mejor costilla de res que he probado. Y lo dems tambin es exquisito. Vale la pena el recorrido desde Austin
  • Southern Living raves about the brisket
