OMG!

OMG! The atmosphere is perfect, small-town, Texas! There is no air conditioning, but open screened in, old-timey, Texas! The ribs are TO. DIE. FOR. The sausage is good and the brisket is great! The peach cobbler with ice cream is some of the best you'll find in the state! A must visit! You... read more

After reading all the article on Louie Mueller's I've had a trip to Taylor on my BBQ bucket list. The Moist Brisket is awesome and the Jalapeño sausage is fantastic too. The whole Family give it two thumbs up !

My son took me to Louie Mueller's for Father's Day and my wife and I returned here today. Both visits were lunch visits. Where do I begin. Their signature entree is the smoked beef "short" rib. What a wat to misname something. Our "short" rib today weighed nearly 1-1/2 lb. when I went with my son we each got one... More

Words don't give this brisket justice. This was by far the best BBQ I've ever had in my life and that's not hyperbole by any means. The brisket alone is worth the trip from anywhere you can name and it just melts in your mouth; I could easily eat a pound of it by myself. The sausage was also really... More

Mr. Mueller, My first reservation is that you are concerned about an employee you deny working for you, then that her opinion of the food made where she supposedly didn't work according to you, as a general employee, is of such concern to you? Credibility? I had just met the woman when I moved here years ago. If you deny... More

This is one heckofaplace. I've heard about it and read about it and seen it on TV. Decided to veer off the beaten path on a trip to Austin and make the effort to drive to Taylor. Glad I did. We had sliced brisket and a smoked beef short rib. Both outstanding. All I can say is that everything you've... More

Taylor is a original old small Texas town and Mueller's is a peculiar restaurant there. It is the kind of sensation of being in an old western movie because the building is decadent but has its style!!! The food is really good and the brisket is moisture as it should be. I also ordered the baby back ribs and it... More

After seeing LMB's Barbecue on the Food Network and getting the highest of comments from a best friend, we decided to make the trip to Taylor, TX for some great barbecue. Well it was definitely worth it! The place is pretty much in it's original condition but that just adds to the charm. We waited in line with a couple... More

Most people have their favorite BBQ joint. Me (and my family), well we basically love all BBQ. We live in Kansas City and get to eat it a lot, but Louie Mueller's is some of the best we've had. We stopped in right after they opened on a Sat. morning (10am). By 10:30am there was already a line. We shared... More

Located in the small town of Taylor TX; Muellers has in operation since 1946! The current location is a large smokehouse with soot-black walls where the smell of finely cooked meet permeates the atmosphere. Their smoked meats are excellent! My friends and I had a great guys lunch and drove home trying to figure out how soon we could come... More
