The hours are odd because they close at 6. We arrive shortly before closing so took our order as a carry out. The brisket was tender and flavorful. I recommend the potato salad too.

Had the sliced brisket sandwich and a sausage. Both were delicious. Very strong black pepper flavor. About $10. Well worth the price of admission. Will definitely come back.

Opened in 1949, and definitely an old school bbq joint, this is the best in TX. Seriously. Try the moist brisket. It's so juicy, smokey, and flavorful. Then the baby back ribs. Slow smoked, sweet, and so tender. The best I've had. The sausage tastes like butter. It malts in your mouth and you don't want to chew it, you... More

If you love bbq you have to make pilgramage to this Texas shrine. This is the way it should always be done, looow and slow. The brisket is perfection, anyway you care to enjoy it. The ribs are equally good. The building is nothing fancy but iis classic and unforgettable. It is just too bad it is not close to... More

No kidding. It's still the best in Texas. Make sure you get there pretty early if you don't want to stand in line. But no matter when you get there, no matter how long the line is, guaranteed you'll leave full with a smile on your face. Just the best rub on brisket you'll ever find. If you're close, take... More

Once again this is a Bar B Q place that will take you back in time. I don't like the serving line, that can take a long time. The sausage is better then found in most of Tx. Bar B Q Joints. But judging it on its own merits, its average.

It may look like something Fred Flintstone would order, but Louis Mueller's beef ribs are the greatest thing on the menu for the town of Taylor and the 27,413 surrounding counties. You stand in line, you get an iced tea, you notice the nostalgia and awards on the wall, but when you get to the counter, just say "beef rib,... More

I have been eating here since 2002. The interior is coated with the effects of smoking the meat. Years ago it was difficult to breath but they have since done a good job of keeping the air clean. The selection is fair but they frequently run out of some popular cuts soon after the lunch rush. The meats are of... More
