I was so hopeful to try Texas Ranch BBQ while in Austin recently. I’d heard great things about them, so was very anxious to get a taste. Sadly the closest I got was to go into the building that houses Papalote Taco House. The barbecue trailer out front was closed for some reason even though their website said they would be open. I could have had my pick of many different and delicious-looking tacos. But alas, I really wanted some barbecue. So I passed. Texas Ranch is definitely still a high-priority target for the next time I get to Austin.
