It is what it is, you see similar out here with the hot restaurants.

One of my favorite breakfast places from 30 years ago became popular. Now it is a three hour wait for breakfast. I haven't been there in 10 years

Franklin's was worth it - 5 hours on Father's Day but I tell you guys honestly it was the best brisket I have ever had. I haven't seen or ate anything like it in my whole life as a Texan.

I was there in 2010 and didn't want to wait in line... Drove to Lockhart (Kreuz Market) and was able to get served and seated right away.

Somethings are worth waiting for if you have the time, but I'll settle for second best if the wait is too long...
