I have been going to this place for 20 yrs. The brisket is wonderful and the sausage is too. Sometimes there is a line...but don't leave! Its worth it. I try not to go there too often, so its still great every time. The walls are smudged w/ smoke residue. You know you're in the right place when you see that! God Bless Texas BBQ!

After reading previous reviews & driving from the South side of Austin I was not a happy camper. The brisket was absolutely the driest piece of meat I've ever had... & the dipping sauce was virtually a cup of vinegar.. certainly not worth the time or money..

Well we stopped in Austin and hoped to go to Franklin BBQ, as it is rated the best in TX, and they were mobbed as expected. No chance of even getting in the door. So we decided to try Muellers in Taylor as we had seen the TV shows and heard they were damned good too.

Well, they are. When we got there there was no line as it was after 1pm. The place is an old market, wood floors, no AC, many fans, no frills. Just driving up you can smell the wood smoke!!!!

They ARE the real deal. The brisket was smoked to perfection, juicy, and melt in your mouth. So was the pulled pork and the sauces, aye yi yi, real vinegar based sauces and REAL homemade chili BBQ sauce to die for. The cole slaw, beans & potato salad were great too. And save room for the peach cobbler!

The prices are comparable with the competition, the service is fast & friendly, and the pit master of the day gives you brisket tastes so you can decide fat or lean end of the brisket. I have always said the is no bad BBQ, just good better and great, this is GREAT BBQ. You owe it to yourself to go out to Taylor and give them a try. You won't be disappointed!

You won't find better barbeque anywhere. The homemade sausage is great, as is the brisket, and my new favorite BEEF RIB!! You won't find a better beef rib. I never liked beef ribs until I got one from Louie Mueller. Its' about 2 inches in width, and just melts in your mouth. For a tip, go early so you don't have to wait in line tooo long. Louie Mueller is the Homerun of barbeque. You just can'tgo wrong eating here.

No air conditioning, no fancy silverware, no waiters, just good food. When you see a line going out the door at 2:00 on a Saturday afternoon, you know people are there for the food. They only cook up a limited amount of food every day, so get there early. We actually pre-ordered barbecue to take home for a large crowd.
