“Awesome BBQ....But PLEASE stop telling everyone!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

This is now my favorite bbq joint..hands down. Consistently great. The lines can be long but way worth it. They surprised me the other day with a burnt end, and that's not a bad thing. Good, friendly folks doing what I wish I could do. Lets support these folks, buy local!!

“Real deal BBQ in TX”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

Ok so I have been around a little. Everywhere I go I look for a BBQ joint. In Houston looked up BBQ and this place came up. Opens at 11:00 am so I get there at 11:00. Line was 30 deep. Waited almost an hour in line. MAN WAS IT WORTH IT!!!! Sliced brisket, sausage, pulled pork, pork rib, sliced turkey, beans, potato salad, Mac n cheese, coleslaw everything was really good! Consistent smoke, you could taste the individual meats, great rub. This place is in my top three of all time! If you are in Houston get here early when they run out, they are out for the day. Eat at corkscrew!!

“Well worth waiting in line....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

A great find with a bizarre location for BBQ trailer, but boy is it good. Could easily be best pulled pork ever.
Brisket was terrific- love how they ask if you want it lean or fatty! Beans were outstanding as was cold slaw. Fresh and so very flavorful....
Overall food was very good. Ribs and cobbler sold out early.Usually closes by 2:30/3:00 when food runs out!

“Best pork BBQ west of the Mississippi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

This place looks like a hole in the wall trailer just off of I 45 N. outside of Houston. I have traveled extensively throughout Texas and other parts of the country eating barbecue and this place is incredible. Run by a husband who does the grilling and his wife who does the sides and cobbler, they Put out some of the best barbecue anywhere. The pulled pork and smoked turkey are my favorite- the pork is moist and juicy every time And the turkey is just the right amount of smoke to it. The brisket is moist and smoky and their sandwiches and tacos are outstanding. The only downside about this place is when it's gone it's gone, so you've got to get there early especially on the weekends. They will typically sell out of their popular meats within an hour or two of opening on the weekends or by mid-to-late afternoon during the week. I'm lucky enough to live in Houston and enjoy this barbecue frequently but if you're traveling and looking for a great barbecue spot this is it. Follow them on Twitter for the cobbler of the day and find out when they run out of meat.
