“BBQ at houstons Finest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The true BBQ is home cooking, second best is privately owned BBQ joint the taste like home cooking. I really love his place! Only been here a few times, and the chopped beef sandwiches just melt in your mouth full of that wholesome BBQ flavor. Great place to bring the family for that pic nic type of food, and not to bad of a price. Service was as good as you would expect. For a great texan BBQ house, wouldn't go anywhere else.

“Pappas BBQ, 8560 Gulf Fwy Houston”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Brisket tasted old and had lost any smoke flavor it may have had. Very few Patrons on a Friday night. Sauce tasted sour and old and expired, and when basted onto meat separated into water and whatever else it was. Beans were spicy and garlicy and unusually good. So, go here for beans.

“Good sandwiches, good sides”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Their chopped beef sandwich is worth it, but the pulled pork one was dry. Great sides - go for the beef (it is Texas after all)

“Pappas BBQ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Some are better than others. The one on 290 is just average. Not my favorite, but convenient. This used to be Luther's several years ago, We have some very good BBQ in Houston....this is just not it.
