Best Barbecue


The now world-famous barbecue mecca is open from 11am until they're sold out, so Franklin groupies know to line up as early as 7am to call dibs on their legendary brisket, turkey, and sausage – the stuff of carnivore dreams. Frequenters bring their lawn chairs and a Settlers of Catan board to pass the time – but boy, is it worth the wait! When it comes to flavor, quality, and consistency, Aaron Franklin is king.
