Louie Mueller Barbecue
206 W. Second St.
Louie Mueller Barbecue has been described as a "cathedral of smoke" due to producing the finest BBQ in all of Texas since the restaurant opened its doors in 1949. Founder Louie Mueller handed over the reins to his son Bobby in 1974, who ran the smoker for over three decades before his son (third generation owner/pitmaster) Wayne Mueller took control in 2007. It was also around this time that the Central Texas BBQ restaurant was honored by the James Beard Foundation with an American Classics award, an honor given only to our nation's most beloved and best regional restaurants. While the menu may have changed slightly from the early days of the BBQ restaurant, the attention to detail and dedication to producing the best BBQ in Texas (and let’s face it, the world) remains the same. Just as it was then, you'll find a Mueller behind the counter and the highest quality Texas BBQ served on your tray.
