Franklin's BBQ "to go"
Yes Franklin has started their to-go service but frankly (pardon the pun) I don't get the hype. At least not the stand in line to be seen by the hipsters mentality. We ordered, picked it up, took it back to the shop, ate it, now what? It was good I grant you but if you want to avoid the wait try Stiles Switch. There's a line, but nothing like Franklin's. And guess what, it's just as good.

We accept pre-orders on either whole briskets, whole pork butts, or whole racks of ribs.
We also accept orders for meat by the pound, with a minimum of 5 pounds total. We are unable to wrap different increments of meat separately.
(example of an acceptable order: 3 pounds brisket, 2 pounds ribs, pint potato salad.)
Sides may be added in pints or quarts.
Orders must be placed at least 3 days in advance, (as long as we are not already full) and
in order to skip the line, may only be picked up between 10:15 am and 10:30am. If you are unable to come during this time, you must wait in line.
No plates and no sandwiches. To go only.
Cost- Whole briskets generally weigh 5-7 pounds, racks of ribs are generally 2.5 pounds, pork butts are generally 4-5 pounds.
Here is the full restaurant menu, which includes current pricing for meats by the lb. --

Don't know how much to order? We suggest 1/2 pound of meat (total)/person.
