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

Visited on a Thursday afternoon and was not disappointed. Brisket (Moist) is absolutely some of the best Ive eaten. Beef ribs were just as good. Sausage was good but not near as good ad some of the other top BBQ joints. My only complaint is the fact that they only had one person carving which made the line very long.... More

This place has great BBQ. The brisket, pork loin, and turkey breast were all great. The meat was tasty and juicy. The potato salad was also very good. We didn't care for the sauce though, it was very thin with lots of onion. The meat is so good, you truly don't miss the sauce. They also have some of the... More

Get there early or go after the lunch crowd and hope they haven't run out of anything. This BBQ melts in your mouth. The brisket is a must. Get a beef rib if you can afford it. It's huge. Like 2 meals huge. The sides aren't spectacular but big deal. You may smell like smoke from the pit if you... More

We have somewhat of an annual tradition of trying legendary BBQ joints on our way to the Texas coast. This trip we went to Taylor to try Louie Mueller's. The atmosphere here can't be topped. The screen doors that welcome you and old wooden floors that creak beneath your boots are filled with history. When you walk in you are... More

Thought we would try famous Louie Mueller's and they delivered. Note: If you are not from Taylor, this town is kinda out of the way but it may be worth the drive. Started with beef brisket and a couple links of sausage. REALLY GOOD BRISKET!! Sausage is pretty good but brisket definitely wins out of the two. Surprisingly there wasn't... More

What can I say that hasn't already been said? Yes, this place is awesome. Worth the drive from Austin. Worth waiting on line. Worth getting a bit of every piece of meat they offer. The brisket and the sausage were my favorites here. I have to say probably the best smoked brisket I have ever had. Smokey, juicy, melt in... More

Stopped by on a Saturday morning in April around 10 am. Line was already 30 mins long when they opened the doors. Picked up couple pounds of brisket (very moist), three kinds of sausage, pulled pork and a single beef rib. The beef rib was HUGE; it weighed almost two pounds! Took all of these smoked meats, along with several... More
