Kerlin BBQ is a legendary Austin spot. Seriously, put this place on your bucket list. Routinely named as the best barbecue in the city (and in the country), this trailer slings ridiculous "quality smoked meats" from 11a until they sell out. Line up early and make sure you get your meat sweets in with fall off the bone pork ribs, tasty, tender brisket, and savory sides like blue cheese coleslaw.
