Bite down into some of the juiciest ribs, chicken, brisket, and tenderloin around at the closest family-style barbecue to the fairgrounds. This place also serves a mean breakfast.

You'd better circle the wagons early if you want to snag some of Aaron Franklin's famous brisket. After an auspicious start as a trailer, this brick-and-mortar location is serving what's regularly called the best barbecue in Texas, if not the country. The Franklins are devoted to producing the best-tasting barbecue they possibly can, and they won’t sacrifice that quality to feed more customers. Best to get in line by 9:30am.
