Franklin Barbecue’s Tacos & Coffee

$$$$

The barbecue at Franklin Barbecue is the best in Austin, the best in Texas, the best in America, and the best in the universe. So when the meat whisperers opened a breakfast taco trailer in their parking lot, our expectations were high. Are these the very best breakfast tacos in Austin? No - but they’re close. Especially the ones made with the legendary Franklin brisket, where it gets crisped up and caramelized on a griddle and paired with fluffy eggs and guacamole, all on a flour tortilla. And unlike Franklin Barbecue, there’s often no line at all. (Bonus: they serve good espresso.)
