Next time, I will call early enough in advance to take advantage of the pre-order opportunity that Aaron Franklin offers. If you order five pounds or more, you can skip the lines and go get your food at 10:30. Unfortunately, they limit their number of pre-orders per day and our calling two weeks ahead of time was not early enough. Apparently these pre-orders get booked a month in advance or more. If you get the opportunity and have the time, I recommend trying this place.
