Re: Why People Wait In Lines (Franklin, Magnolia etc)

My Wife and I thought and said in the past that there was no way We would wait in line for longer than around 30 minutes. My Wife and I were in Austin for my Daughter's state twirling competition and the day after the competition my Wife said "You have always wanted to try Franklin's, let's go do it". We grabbed some drinks, drove and arrived about 10:30am. It was a 2 hour 30 minute wait that day and I was ready to turn around and leave but We decided it was now or never. To my surprise it was an extremely fun and entertaining few hours. We were in front of a Chef from Chicago and her Chef friend from Austin, a family from Indiana was in front of us and multiple other people were around us from all over the country and the Austin area that had brought drinks and beer and snacks from their areas. We visited, laughed shared what we all had brought and had an absolutely great time. We used some of the free chairs that Franklin's provides and they came down the line every 15 minutes or so giving free samples. The time flew by. We even all sat together once inside and shared our turkey (the sleeper on his menu being the best turkey I had in a long time) being as most had only ordered brisket and ribs. I don't know if the experience would be the same next time nor did I know if I would brave it again but looking back on it I'm ready again.
