Here's the latest in Very Important Barbecue News: the much anticipated brick-and-mortar Franklin Barbecue location on East 11th will open on March 12. We fully expect them to be swarmed by out-of-towners at first — that's what you get for opening during SXSW — but hopefully the new location will solve the long line/brisket shortage issues the trailer has suffered in the past.
Also: "LAST DAY AT THE TRAILER. THIS SUNDAY. FREE BEER. NUF SAID." Don't have to tell us twice.
