aaron franklin's bbq is very good however, the cost at which it takes to get it is not worth it. moreso when you have other options nearby. some of which may even be better options. I think equally good in austin are Terry Black's and Coopers. and you can go for dinner and there is plenty of food available.
also all of these places do some things that they don't really advertise. 1. they squirt beef tallow on the butcher paper before its wrapped and 2. They finished their briskets around midnight and place them in 170 degree food holders until they open at lunchtime.
around 11:00 - midnight, they will pull all the briskets and butts they began earlier in the day and place them into the holders. and then put new ones on (for the next nights dinner) franklin doesn't put food on for dinner just lunch thats why they run out.
