Were I to recommend Louie Mueller's to a stranger, I would tell him it is a Texas tradition.  It's as Texas as the State Capitol... You need to go there even if you are a vegetarian.

bsinger's Review of Austins Bar-B-Que

  • Coleslaw: Average. not bad, not great.
  • Sausage: I liked the sausage. Had a very good flavor to it.
  • Brisket: This brisket was great. Great flavor.
  • Beans: I thought they were kinda bland.
  • Potato Salad: German potato salad is good. I love this stuff.
  • Atmosphere: I liked the look of this place right when we drove up. I've never seen a gas station converted into a BBQ joint. Big points for the 'prison like' appearance of the picnic tables surround by a chainlink fence. Too many damn flys gettin in my way!
  • Sauce: Very thick and a little overpowering.
  • Spare Rib: These things were eatin up fast. I thought they were a little tough to eat.
