John Mueller Meat Co.


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 great sides, picnic tables, Texas music, and cold brews (from a nearby, no-frills beer hall). Come early: the city’s largest cookout opens at 10:30 am and shuts down when the meat runs out (around 6 or so).
