Mecca, Madina, Jerusalem, and Franklins BBQ

I’m heading to Austin in a couple months. Where else should I eat? Any recommendations on where to crash for the night?

    Sounds like something Yogi Berra would say.

    If no one goes there, why would it be crowded?

    If anyone ever struggled with the definition of oxymoron this is a perfect example.

    Definitely a page from Yogi... Give the search function here a look.  Plenty of threads on where to eat in Austin, where to get great brisket etc.
    Regarding places to stay:  I stay at Hotel Eleven (linked here)
    http://hotelelevenaustin.com/  Just two blocks up the street from Franklin's.  FWIW-
    Louisville; "indeterminate Jim" here.  Rolling smoke in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer!

    Last time I went to Austin, I had La BBQ, which was totally unbelievable (maybe the best meat I've ever tasted). Never been to Franklin's, but I'm dying to go.
