Texas is well-renown for three things: cowboys out on the open range, the cattle drives and oil rigs that span across its large mass, and of course the tasty barbeque. It’s hard to go around any corner of Texas’ big cities, Austin included, without finding a barbeque joint or catching the smell of fresh meat on a brisket. Our luxury apartments in Austin at Retreat at Barton Creek put you close to some of the best restaurants in Austin, including mouth-watering barbeque stands.
Franklin Barbeque is one of the highest rated barbeque restaurants in Austin, placed #5 on the Best Restaurants in Austin list on TripAdvisor for its savory flavor and high-quality meats. It’s located no more than eight miles away from our luxury apartments, meaning you can drive to their front doors in under twenty minutes or, if you wish to save on gas emissions, you can take a convenient bus ride. Open for lunch every day until 2pm or until supplies are gone (except for Monday,) it’s the perfect stop for mid-day meal perfection. Purchase freshly grilled meats by the pound – such as their rack of ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork, roasted turkey, or sausage links – or put some meat in between bread for one of their signature sandwiches. Add a side like potato salad, pinto beans, or slaw to enjoy on your own or share with your table. Pair up your cuts with house beer and wine, and end your meal on a good note with pies like key lime, lemon chess, or bourbon banana.
