Foodie Fridays in Austin
It’s Friday again and time to think about a fun place to eat out this weekend in Austin.  Depending on what you are in the mood for there is something for everyone!  How about BBQ this weekend?

I’ve got some good choices if you are in the mood for some good old- fashioned Texas BBQ!



Franklin Barbecue   http://franklinbarbecue.com/
Bon Appetit magazine just named them the best BBQ in the country!  You heard right, however you better get there early and plan to take it home for an evening gathering.  “Say what?”...you heard me..they open at 11am and stay open until the sign goes up “SOLD OUT” which is usually by 1 pm.  Mr. Franklin has a goal to remain open into the evening by continuing to expand but right now you better get there early in the day if you want to sample his brisket...which is to die for!!

Live Oak Barbecue  http://liveoakbbq.net/
Another East Austin favorite has emerged.  This dark hideaway has been transformed into a celebration of smell and taste!  Homemade picnic tables, a fresh coat of paint, a handcrafted smoker and coloring book paintings of menu choices attracts patrons in search of good grub!  Get your jeans and boots on and head to east Austin.

Stubbs Barbecue  http://stubbsaustin.com/
Stubbs became the heart of the explosive music scene in the 1970’s.  Definitely the place to be for musicians like Joe Ely, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Linda Ronstadt....just to name a few! You have to experience the ambiance of Stubb’s...have a cold beer,meet some friends...listen to live music and eat some great BBQ!

Good morning Dorie -

Your Foodie Friday sounds yummy!  And best BBQ in the country! What an honor!  Day 10 of the juicer, salad and protein diet the wife has me on.  Down 12 pounds and I don't think I could slide the BBQ be Debbie :)  Actually already feeling better and the ole gut is shrinking!

Make it a great Friday in all you do!
