Last Man Standin’ at Franklin Barbecue - Austin, Texas
Everyday, a line forms outside Franklin Barbecue in Austin, Texas hours before the doors open at 11am. A person takes a survey of what kind and how much meat everyone in line plans to buy, and based on that, estimates where in the line they will no longer guarantee that any food will be left. Anyone who is in line behind the “Last man standin’” is risking a 3-4 hour wait and nothing to show for it. That day, there were usually 5-15 people behind that point, so, yeah… It’s that good.
