  • The Sliced pork shoulder, lamb chorizo and jalapeo grits were incredible.
  • Skip the longer wait lines at Franklin's & La BBQ... Mickelthwait's Craft Meats is for real
  • The brisket melts in your mouth! The lamb sausage is divine, coming from someone who's not a fan of any kind of sausage. Cheese grits were AMAZING. A nice southwest twist. The slaw was also en pointe.
  • This vintage 1960 Comet trailer serves all kinds of meat, from duck sausage to smoked brisket, and theyre all flat-out delicious. Micklethwait Craft Meats belongs up with the elite of Austin BBQ.
  • Jalapeo cheese grits might be the best BBQ side I've ever had
  • best beef ribs
  • Austin is having something of a bbq moment, in case you haven't noticed. Micklethwait has gotten its fair share of attention, but still flies under the radar by Austin bbq standards. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Hatch chili cheesy grits. So good.
  • Top 50 in Texas for a reason. Great moist brisket. They also have interesting and tasty sausages that aren't your typical flavors.
  • Great outdoor BBQ spot. Brisket was good but the pork spareribs were the true winner. Cheese grits and slaw are the best sides.
  • The food is delicious, some of the best BBQ in town, BUT...I have gotten sick from the sausage twice. Beware the sausage.

  • Good BBQ. Better than Franklin, but not as good as Terry Blacks.
  • Phenomenal ribs and sausage. Don't skip the frito pie or other sides either.
  • Right next to Franklins. Shorter lines, cool outdoor vibe, and equally tasty
  • "Micklethwait has some of the best sides in the BBQ game and ribs that fall off the bone. Treat yourself to the frito pie with brisket as well." - Chekmark Eats
  • Only the brisket...OK...No wow factor.
  • Very good food. Got there at 11am on a sunday and only about 8 ppl ahead of me in line. The brisket and cheesy grits were my favorite
  • The brisket was so good. Cooked great, tender and great flavor
