I've been going since they opened. We even ordered a Christmas Brisket and Stuffed Chickens. By far the most flavorful Brisket I have had. And the stuffed chickens were spicy and gone in minutes (filled with poblano peppers). The BBQ sauce is the best I've tasted. I ordered a quart and since the meat doesn't need it ended up as... More

To be honest, I have hesitated writing this review. The BBQ is really too good to share with the public. A quick review will see that apparently everyone already knows about it. I gave this BBQ 5 stars and would give it six if I could. First, the brisket melts in your mouth. If you do not know what brisket... More

I live in The Woodlands and have been a frequent diner to another local owned BBQ restaurant and while I still love that place and will go back, am very glad to have Corkscrew right nearby. Tried today for the first time and blown away. Just had sliced beef sandwich but it was awesome. Great seasoning & crust and just... More

My family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids under 8) ordered the sampler platter, and it was more than enough food. The meat was very good. However, it was a bit salty for my taste, which is why I only gave 4 stars. In my husband's opinion, it was perfect. We arrived about 10 minutes before it opened, and then... More

My brother and I got there at 10:30 like everyone said and man 30 min after they opened they were lined up to the parking lot. We got the sampler (rest I fed to my family for dinner) and the peach cobbler. I loved the moist brisket, both chopped pork choices, the turkey, and sausage. The cobbler was yum-o like... More

OMG what a crazy experience this was. You better be there by 10:30 or you may not get the ribs. Ask me how I know! This is a crazy place. You stand in line forever but they have umbrellas and fans to try to cool you off. Not a place for a quick lunch. There are tables to eat at... More

If you want some real good Texas BBQ,this is your place.I read the reviews before hand & that's what brought us here.We were in town for a concert @ the CWM Pavillion & staying a couple of days so satisfying our palate was a necessity.From my research this seemed like an interesting option.We arrived around 11:30 and the line was...

This place is legendary. Have seen tons of people talking about it and finally had to give it a try. Got there last week around 10:50 and got in a long line. They opened at 11, and the line moved slowly. Have heard tons about them selling out and was worried we might not get any BBQ but had a... More

From this humble, permanently-parked trailer comes the best BBQ in 50 miles, and some of the best in Texas. Superlative brisket, excellent pork ribs, delicious chicken, and perhaps the best turkey I've ever eaten. Saturday mornings they make the Flintstone-sized beef rib, which is amazing. As a small BBQ place, they sell out every day (you can't just whip up... More

Like everyone else says, get there early or they will start running out of things while you're waiting in line. With that being said, its worth waiting for. The brisket and sausage were outstanding. I thought the ribs could have been a little more tender, you know, "fall off the bone" style. But I would go back - really a... More
