Great value for the money, great food for the tummy. You'll wish there was a Pappas BBQ where you live and you'll look forward to coming back to Houston just so you can go to Pappas BBQ. Yummy.

If you are into large portions, Pappas BBQ on S. Main St. In Houston is the place for you. Being in Texas, I should have know better. While my husband had the ribs and pulled pork, I just had a salad and baked potato - both of which I could not finish. The salad had a nice variety of vegetables... More

Great BBQ joint. I had the tangy tennesse sandwich and my wife had the pork trio. Large portions and the BBQ had a great taste. With sodas for two people it ran a little over $20 so not too bad on price. I would eat here again.

Worst BBQ ever. Pulled pork was salty, didnt even taste like pork. BBQ sauce tasted like tomato sauce. Baked beans were horrible and soupy, ribs were below average , brisket tough. Out of 5 people , no one enjoyed their meal. No one.

If you're going to want Texas BBQ the moment you check into your hotel in downtown Houston, this is probably as good a choice as any (and recommended by my hotel). The set-up is a bit awkward - grab a tray, step up and order. I had half chicken and pulled pork with 2 sides for $11. Good food and... More

Ate here (I45) one evening without knowing anything about the place. It took a few minutes to figure out the ordering system....kinda cafeteria style. the food was very good although they gave me beef instead of the pork ribs I ordered and they were out of BBQ sauce. we all thought the food was good and would eat here again....

On Main Street, no far from MD Anderson. Had a pulled-pork sandwich and baby-back ribs. Both were very tasty. Only downside is there is no table service but still worth a visit.

I just love the Turkey and pulled pork here. The staff is friendly and the restaurant is always clean.
