Colossal "Dino" Beef Ribs

Louie Mueller Barbecue ships its legendary beef ribs nationwide on Goldbelly! Sometimes called “Dino-Ribs,” these beef ribs are some of the meatiest beef ribs in Texas. Louie Mueller rubs these Dino Ribs with salt and cracked black pepper and then slow-cooks them over post oak wood with tender loving care.

Louie Mueller Barbecue, a hallowed name among Texas BBQ aficionados, has been serving authentic barbecue since 1949 from its no-frills, family-run joint just outside Austin. Louie Mueller is best known for their tender beef brisket, ribs so big they’re referred to as “dino,” and hand-mixed sausage stuffed on site in Taylor, Texas. Today’s current owner and pit master is the namesake’s grandson Wayne, who is the careful steward of all Mueller’s mouthwatering classics. Everything is made from scratch using cherished, legendary family recipes. How legendary? This Texas BBQ establishment has ranked 1st or 2nd in almost every “best of BBQ” list Texas Monthly has published since 1975. Louie Mueller was also named a James Beard Foundation “American Classic” in 2006. Yeehaw!

Easy to navigate and lots of variety. I had an issue with one of the items on my order getting sold out but I was contacted, product was switched, partial credit was issued and delivery still made it there by the promised date. It was a gift so I appreciated that!

Start to finish, Goldbelly brought some special food items to some special people. What a treat!! I never thought I'd get to taste Louis Mueller's beef ribs again. My sister was thrilled with specialty popovers she received. This is a much appreciated service!

actually it did not initially go so well..... but the way the problem was handled could not have been done better... so you get an A+ in my book.... most companies can deal well when things are going is when things go bad that the good companies separate themselves from the also rans..
