John Mueller Meat Co.
Like many of the best entrepreneurial endeavors, this place taps into the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple, Stupid) principle. What you’ll find here is a trailer selling the best cuts of barbecued meat---selected, smoked, seasoned, and sauced by a third-generation Texas meat merchant with plenty of chops (excuse the pun). You’ll also find sides of potato salad, pinto beans, and baked squash; picnic tables; Texas music; and cold brews from neighboring Kellee’s Place, a no-frills beer hall. Come early: the city’s largest cookout shuts down when the meat runs out.
