The pork ribs "wet" are tender, loaded with meat, and super tasty. The service is fantastic, in if you call ahead, your food will be ready and all you have to do is go to the front counter and pick it up. There is so...much meat on the ribs that 2 of them will be a great meal and fill you up. They have the best tasting pork ribs I've ever had to include up in Nashville Tennessee kumbha all over Texas, and even at home. Absolute wonderful stop.More

Stockyard Bar-B-Q...its good, real good! Its not Houston's best BBQ, but it will certainly satisfy your Texas BBQ fix. Prices are reasonable, service is good enough, and Southern rustic decor will set you in the mood for your meat sweats. The $21 three meat meal...is a lot of food for the money! Beef Brisket...good and smoky, but I've had better. Sweet and Wet Ribs...tasty and smoky, but wish they were more tender. Dry & Spicy Ribs...see above. But the rub is lovely!More

We stopped into this no frills no fuss BBQ place while staying in Houston. Baked potato was perfect, brisket super tender and ribs fell right off the bone. What more could you need?!? Would certainly come back if we ever find ourselves in Houston again!

Soft tender ribs grossly under seasoned. Both the dry rub and wet and juicy ribs lacked much taste but were really fall off the bone tender. Not quite the experience I was looking for so not on my list for a return visit.

Awful first expereience. Made an order on Postmates that said it would be ready in ten minutes. Make the twenty minute drive to get there. Get told they don't have an order for me or from Postmates on their tablet. Let them know I have...a charge on my account. They say they understand and are sorry. Do they offer help? Nope. Do they offer to get an order going right away? Nope. Just go on to the next customer so I'm stuck with my hands in my pockets like a royal a-hole with a twenty minute drive home with no food. This was my first time here, and evidently my last.More

This is a very clean restaurant. The service is very professional and friendly. They treat you like a friend. The barbecue is very good portion and very well cooked. See my pictures. The only thing that wasn't dead was the barbecue sauce it was kind...of wet and Bland but otherwise this is a great place if you use your own barbecue sauce.More

Solid BBQ joint in Houston. Rosemary turkey is awesome. Excellent sides and sauces as well. Sweet tea just right. Great service. Will stop again when traveling to Houston

No frills BBQ place, order food cafeteria style and get it right away. Brisket, sausages, pulled pork, etc. Ample sides to choose. Tasty and if you want it spicy ask for the “picosa” sauce.

Houston is one of the best metros when it comes to variety of cuisines and quality of food in offer. However, when in Texas you gotta have at least one BBQ meal. Stockyard was my chosen stop, on this visit. I chose a two meat...plate with two sides. Beef brisket and dry, spicy ribs paired with heart attack potatoes and garlic green beans completed my spread. It was a huge serving of food and I almost wished I had been starving all day. One of the complaints I had was while I wasn't paying full attention, the server dunked a whole lot of barbecue sauce on both my brisket and ribs. I would have liked my ribs dry. The brisket was very tender, juicy and perfectly flavored. The ribs were a little underwhelming, maybe my palette was compromised because of all the unwanted sauce. But the texture was a little off and flaky. I expect more from a highly rated Texas BBQ joint. The heart attack potatoes was truly heart stopping in more ways than one. And the garlic beans went great with the meat servings too. Combined with a local Karbach beer, I was quite happy with the meal. I wish I had the appetite for a peach cobbler. The interior is set up like a rustic smokehouse BBQ place, and was unusually dead on a Tuesday night.More
