Anthony Bourdain talks to the Huffington Post about No Reservations and has this to say about the Franklin Barbecue brisket here in Austin:
It is the best. It is the finest brisket I've ever had. I can't imagine anyone could surpass this. It's unearthly in its moistness, in its perfect balance. Listen -- I waited in line an hour and a half to get in there. [Laughs.] I stood on line. That's part of the experience, to stand in line. It's a whole social thing. But let me tell you, by the time I was, oh, 10 feet away from that brisket, looking at it, I understood why'd I'd waited on line with everybody else. I could tell just from the way it hit the cutting board that this was going to be just earth-shatteringly good. And it was indeed.The eighth season of No Reservations premieres tonight on the Travel Channel and will include his trip to Franklin in coming episodes--so you might want to get in line, like, now.
