The drink is refreshing. Cucumber flavor works with the heat and the humidity. The pulled pork I'd dry, don't bother. The pork ribs steer great, tender and a lightly Smokey flavor and good BBQ. We're didn't try the steak Au we can't say if you should get the places namesake.

Lovely server Nicole was very attentive and explained some of the Texas menu items for us. She recommended the 16 oz Tbone special, huge well seasoned steak, yum. Cheese sticks are homemade and our guests ordered pork, smoked & grilled, hats off to the kitchen!! If you're traveling through the Kemah area, don't pass this place up, and ask for... More

The food was amazing here! The armadillo eggs were the best thing we have ever had. They are a MUST try!

we looked up this restaurant from DDD reviews. The food was good this was our first time visiting but i think the server just assumed we had been there before. She wasnt real helpful with suggestions . We asked lots of questions and ended up getting the pork chops platter and the 3 meat platter which both were really good... More

My expectations for ambiance were too high. It's definitely got a diner feel to it. The service wasn't very good. They seemed to cater to people who were regulars and knew the menu. We didn't understand what some of the items were on the menu and the server was hard to understand. The food was good. I really did enjoy... More

I tried the brisket and the sausage. It was fantastic. The outdoor dining is welcoming. If you want real Texas BBQ try T-Bone Toms!!

We stopped by for lunch because the day's special was Southern Fried Chicken that was delicious-- and what a great price!! The place was jammed with chicken lovers. Service was great even with the crowd. Such a good place.

If you are looking for great food and service, skip the Kemah Boardwalk! The menu offers something for everyone, from a huge chicken fried steak (there is more meat than breading!) to seafood and barbecue. I am a huge fan of the blackened catfish. There is an indoor dining room, but we prefer to eat outside. There are fans that... More

We stumbled upon this place and it became one of our favorite places in TX. Must order: Armadillo eggs. (I don't even like jalepenos, I pull them out). These are probably one of our top five favorite foods. Also like: hush puppies, the special steak (can't remember the name but ask for the special), the campfire steak appetizer, and I... More
