Good BBQ

The food is good and plentiful. Cafeteria style ordering and good food for the value. The atmosphere has a western flare as does the bbq. A good family place as we have had several family outings here.

We were quite surprised how nice the BBQ restaurant was located inside a convenient store/gas station! It has a bakery & homemade chocolate candy...which we couldn't resist after our meal. I had the pork rib & brisket combo with loaded mashed potatoes and BBQ beans; my husband had the sausage link sandwich & my mom had the chopped beef sandwich.... More

I used to love to go to Luther's BBQ and eat their big, juicy, meaty ribs. However, since Luther's closed in the Houston area years ago I have been on the search for ribs as good as those, usually ending up with BBQ bones. Finally found big, meaty, juicy ribs at Big Horn BBQ. If you want some meat on... More

Groups from my church used to frequent Big Horn for meeting because it was close and convenient. The food was ok, certainly not Texas style bbq but ok. You will go through a line and choose your food, much like a Luby's concept, paying at the end of the counter and carrying your food to your table. You will get... More

The smoked turkey is among the best you'll eat anywhere. The lean brisket is much better than most places. The sausage is just so-so (a major bummer for me). Many of their dishes come with a slice of Jalapeno Cheese bread and it's excellent!!! I also enjoy a few of their sides. The Mac-n-chz is excellent as are the Charro... More

This place used to be awesome when they first opened. Good sized portions, thick sliced bbq. Well, the tide has turned over our last two visits. Small portions of luke warm, thin sliced or should I say shaved bbq. I was going to try the chicken but they were out so I had a sliced beef sandwich. There was maybe... More

We love eating here! The service is always great and the BBQ is really really good. Out of all the BBQ places in Pearland, this is our favorite (well, except for Killen's). Best bread pudding I have ever had (yes, the bread pudding is actually better than Killen's)

Wasn't sure I had the right place - the restaurant shares a lot with a gas station... Counter service with food delivery via number on the table This is country style cooking, so nothing currently considered healthy or fresh Limited beer selection, unless you like bud, bud light and Corona and one or two Houston beers The menu covers the...

I'm not sure how they can call their break fast tacos, tacos? A skinny tortilla with very little filling, just horrible,$1.89 for this type of taco is a rip off.The price should be $0.50 The other menu selections are overpriced as well with small portions. My family and I will not spend our money there again, I'll be sure to... More

If you're in the mood for some fantastic Texas BBQ then be sure to stop in to the Big Horn. Outstanding food at great prices. Nice atmosphere will only enhance your enjoyment of the cuisine. And you can even but your own smoker while you're there!
