Best In Texas

Family owned and operated, this is the best BBQ restaurant in Texas. Tender brisket, classic cuban pulled pork, absurdly good mac and cheese. What really makes this place is the sauce: Not too sweet, not too much tang, and not watery. Take my advice: Get yourself the loaded baked potato with... read more

This place has great food and they are generous in their portions. We are always looking around for new decor items that they add to the place regularly. We have never been disappointed with the food at Central TX BBQ.

Family owned with excellent barbecue. I think Central Texas Barbecue has been in Pearland for over 20 years. It is the first barbecue restaurant I remember in town. I like everything on the menu. The sides are also excellent. You walk through a line ( like at Lubys ) to order.

This is my all time favorite barbecue. I usually get the ribs but the all of their food is really really good. I love the huge selection of sides! I drive 15 minutes to go here, pick up the food, and go back home to truly enjoy it.

I must admit, I spent 30 years living in Memphis, TN which is known internationally for GREAT barbecue. When we relocated to TX, we were disappointed in the barbecue in the greater Houston area, until this place appeared on our radar! They have the best barbecue and sides within a 300 mile radius! You need to try their food! When... More

I first learned at Central Texas BBQ when living in Pearland, Texas back in the mid 80's. It was much smaller then and the food was the best around. When I visited a much-changed and larger Pearland this past week, I was happy to learn at CTB was still in business and after dinner, just as good. This is authentic... More

The barbecue is great. Better than Spring Creek. Their ribs are perfect, also love their honey sweetened sweet potatoes yummy. If I want barbecue and don't feel like waiting in lime CENTRAL is the place.
