One of the most well-known BBQ items in all of Texas. Louie Mueller’s legacy, which began in 1949 as a grocery in Taylor, is hailed as a “cathedral of smoke” justly famous for its massive beef rib. The tender, flavorful, post-oak-cooked beef-on-a bone is fatty deliciousness so rich one bite has been known to induce dizziness and swooning. Eating at Louie Mueller’s — bone in hand, surrounded by the soot-stained walls and blackened wood ceilings from half a century of smoking – is a primal experience most barbecue devotees only dream of.
