Louie Mueller Barbecue

Louie Mueller has added a new, modern dining room that does not have the rich, smoky patina of the old brick-walled restaurant; but no matter where you eat in this venerable barbecue, the flavor is historic. Here is a restaurant where beef brisket (as well as sausage, ribs, tenderloin, and chicken) are cooked and served the way pitmasters have been doing it for decades in this part of Texas. Step up to the counter behind which you have a view of the old smoke pits. Order your meat by the pound or plate. It is presented on a serving tray, which you carry to a table.

Louie Mueller’s brisket is a thing of beauty. It is sliced relatively thick, pepper crusted, its outside turned black from hours in the pit, its fat-laced interior moist and veritably dripping protein potency. It is served with a cup of sauce reminiscent of au jus, and there is some hotter sauce set out on the table, but forget sauce, forget side dishes. Just contemplate this beef. There is none better anywhere.

My favorite BBQ in Texas. I've been a customer for over 25 years. And other than the deaths of the founder, Louie and then his son Bobby, the grandson, Wayne Mueller is now the Mueller keeping the Louis Mueller tradition of Central Texas BBQ alive and well.

It's not a stretch for us to get in the car and drive the ten miles to Taylor from Georgetown to eat this wonderful food.

The place to experience Texas style barbecued beef.

On our recent trip to Austin we ate at a few of the famous barbecue joints in Lockhart and Elgin. I enjoyed every one of them but, to me, Louis Mueller Barbecue stood out from the pack.

The brisket (of which they offer everyone a sample) is simply outstanding. A simple salt and pepper rub and oak smoke yet the flavor and moistness has to be experienced.

The beef ribs are also a revelation. Deep, smokey, meaty flavor with a succulence that reminds me of braised short ribs. These aren't cheap but it was worth every penny. It far surpassed the smoked prime rib we tried elsewhere.
