This weekend, Austin had a lot going for it: sunny, 60-degree weather, special beef ribs made by Franklin’s Barbecue, and a surprise visit to Austin’s favorite meat joint by Jimmy Kimmel and his sidekick Guillermo. My first trip to Franklin’s this past Saturday was topped by a sighting of the talk show duo, who rolled up in a longhorn-studded convertible. They greeted everyone in line, walked inside, and chowed down on barbecue.
But the fun didn’t stop there. Apparently, Jimmy and Guillermo made several more meaty appearances at other Austin barbecue joints.
Jimmy Kimmel says the show will air during the SXSW festival in March.
