John may be a lot of things but that old boy can cook!

Have you tried the Taylor Cafe? Cool old place.

Louie Mueller's is that perfect combination of great food and history/atmosphere.

Couldn’t agree more. When all things are considered, LM BBQ probably offers the best overall experience. It’s central TX barbecue ground zero.

I've not seen anyone mention The Burnt Bean which is listed #4. Ernest Servantes used to tear it up on the competition barbecue circuit, especially in Texas. I have not had the opportunity to try it yet, but reports from other competition cooks is that it is definitely legit and competition cooks do not give out compliments casually.

Its not that they went downhill. Others have elevated their game.

Dozier's is terrible.

He's at Franklin's now.

Burnt Bean is AWESOME and would have been my #1. I filmed a video review two weeks ago if interested.

I was in TX in January 2020 right before all h3ll broke loose. Went to Black's in Austin and was lucky enough to visit Franklin. Wished I could have gone to the other big ones but limited in work trip time. I've had what I personally consider to be better pork here in VA, but Franklin's brisket was unbelievable. Granted, haven't had a lot of "world renowned brisket" in my life like many of you have. But if there's "better than Franklin" brisket (that I had on that Thursday) , all I can say is Holy chit....


I am not into "hip" bbq. I don't want "creative" bbq. Im not a fancy person,, and I don't want fancy bbq. I want good delicious tasty bbq. I feel like I've said enough, and I'm starting to drool on my phone thinking about brisket and beef ribs and the smell of bbq smoke in the air...

Maybe one day I'll get back down there to visit more of the big names, on the list or not.....

Mike,


Good video. The food looked really good. I've been around Ernest a few times and find him to have a very funny personality. I wish him great success.


Thanks,


Robert

Appears Tyler’s BBQ wasn’t hurt. Took my Mother a helluva care package including, soup, stew, chili, brisket, pork, two frozen chili dogs, chicken thighs. Returned to tent via a route passing by Tyler’s, a previous Top 50 now dropped from list best I can tell by scrolling small screen. Not there. Tyler’s parking lot was packed just a few minutes after 11AM. List or not listed time and Tyler’s Texas Barbecue marches on.

Wow, not only eating great BBQ, but listening to great music (Levon H fronting TB)! I could smell the ribs and briskey down here in Kiwi.

I had to edit a lot of the video out to avoid copyright strikes! I think I was able to piece together a good video without the lost footage, but had I not been able to I would have still posted the video.
