One of the oldest restaurants in Pearland

I read once that Central Texas BBQ was one of 2 of the oldest restaurants dating back to who knows when. You can tell when you walk in. The decor is very homey and eclectic with old family photos on tabletops and little knick knacks all over. They are located near train tracks and it's very easy to... read more

Drove over here to try one of BBQ places suggested on The Food Channel. Could not get in due to very long line, so tried this place down the street. Fantastic decor with unique atmosphere. Do not go here for a quiet meal! Very family oriented... We know well, thanks to the more than active children crawling all around us!... More

My husband and I come here for our lunch dates during the work week and we must say that they have never disappointed. We love this place so much and no other places comes close. Feels like home when we're are here. Love it so much that we use Central for our catering during company events. If you love some... More

The unsweet tea was excellent! In the middle of the lunch hour, on a Saturday, we waited 15-20 minutes in line to order. But it was worth it! My only... More

Knew Texas was great for BBQ in very different styles. Since I like sweet baked beans, not spicy, we tried this local place. The portion size was BIG like Texas. I've been eating off the take home for 3 days now and still tastes great. Baked beans are sweet with onion and pork for super flavor (not ketchup taste). Green... More
