  • The beef ribs is the best barbecue in Austin, which is why its on our list of The Tastes That Make the City: Austin.
  • Unctuous rib meat barely clings to the smoke-stained bone before it melts in your mouth. John Mueller, the Yoda of beef ribs, dispenses fantastic barbecue in a relaxed, comfy trailer set-up.
  • John Mueller has re-emerged in a trailer behind East-side dive Kellee's to smoke the same meats that have made him on of the most skilled pitmasters in Texas.
  • The brisket is simply incredible--be sure to ask for burnt ends. Don't miss the cheese 'n squash side as well. Hands down, my favorite BBQ joint in Austin!
  • Don't hassle John!!
  • Brisket brisket brisket!! Ribs too! Dry on the outside; Moist and juicy inside. Perfect! It's picked top 10 brisket by Thrillist!
  • Overall, 90% as good as Franklin, with 10% the wait time.
  • Mr. Mueller is the man. Just hooked me up with a Lone Star.
  • Moist brisket, sausage, and potato salad are all solid bets. Oh, and don't forget to get a beef rib on the side!
  • Get there early and get ya some brisket..can't go wrong!
  • Brisket! Brisket! Brisket!
  • Order the beef rib!
  • Bourdain knows what's up: BEEF RIB
  • Try the BBQ!
  • Best BBQ I've ever had.
  • I've eaten BBQ all across the country, and I don't know how it could get any better than here. Get here early.
  • The beef ribs are nothing short of heavenly. Also try the jalapeo cheese sausage!
  • The pickles are way too sour but everything else is delicious.
  • Thrillist Top BBQ List: JM delivers the goods w/brisket, sausage, and turkey, but it's the beef ribs that you'd better not miss, w/their fatty juiciness enhanced by a black pepper-loaded crust.
  • I could do without the pork ribs. They where a little on the dry side, go with the beef instead.
