Great BBQ and a favorite. Comically slow to go service so don't use that. The ribs are a personal favorite. A bit pricy like all Pappas restaurants.

We asked the desk clerk where we could enjoy a great BBQ meal. He directed us here. I was a bit unsure of a cafateria style restaurant. I quickly dismissed my apprehension when we began to eat. The family platter; 3 meats & 3 sides (we chose roast turkey, brisket, smoked ham, yams, ranch beans, & mac-n-cheese)---WOW. Sides were large... More

I love beef ribs and they seem to be somewhat disappearing from the Houston BBQ scene. Luther's was bought out by Pappas Bros and those that were not closed became Pappas BBQ. I recently had the overpriced for what you get beef ribs from the store on SW Fwy. For the price, more bone than meat. Somewhat tasty but nowhere... More

Needed my barbecue fix for the week. Huge baked potato with chopped turkey and the works. Quick, easy, filling and very reasonable. $10.
