Franklin Barbecue lines on a Thurs/Fri (or Lockhart?)

wallyg | Aug 13, 2012 09:46 AM

Heading into Austin for a long weekend...flight lands at 11am on Thursday, so by the time I get my car and drive to the city, it'll be after it even worth heading towards Franklin Barbecue at that point? Or am I smarter to just save it for Friday? And if I do save it for Friday, what time do I really need to be there if I want to eat reasonably close to opening? I've read things about 9am...but they're a year old and I'm wondering if things have calmed down at all? And, I'm asking all of this with the assumption that waiting until Saturday wouldn't be the efficient route, right?

What about Lockhart? Is driving from the airport to Kreuz/Smitty's worth it on Thursday at that hour? What are the lines there like? I probably won't be able to head that far south again on Friday given the rest of my itinerary.
