Very good

Must have one of the Big Horn salads...Prices are a little high but two people can share this salad. BBQ is very good. Staff is very friendly.

Big Horn is one of the nicer restaurants to visit in terms of decor and fun. Though its partnered with a gas station, you'd never know it when inside. The bbq is good. (I enjoy the ribs). Sides are really good, too. Their sauce is tangy and delicious and it's perfect place for dipping jalapeño bread! A little on the... More

So good!! Wanted to go back but didn't have the time. The brisket was amazing, so tender and flavorful! The ribs were good too. They were out of the chicken.

You get what you pay for when you go to Moe's barbecue places in this one is no exception. The prices were not outrageous but the food was not outrageously awesome either. I'm a big judge on brisket and was not impressed due to the lack of flavor and tenderness. The rest of the barbecue was good but not awesome... More

It is interesting how many good eats I have found at gas stations. I will add this one to the list. I got the meat combo platter. The brisket and turkey were EXTREMELY lean, with a good, smokey flavor. The sauce was a bit too spicy for my taste, but the meat was good, if a little dry on its... More

This place is locally known as "Gas Station BBQ" and it does share a facility with a convenience store/gas station. There is a drive thru window and the service is cafeteria style. All of their meats are tasty and it has a family-friendly dining room with booth seating available. On some weekends they have a band. I made the mistake... More

Such friendly people! They paid extra attention to the kids which was nice because, of course, my kids are awesome. The food was good, fresh and affordable. The restaurant was clean.

We were quite surprised how nice the BBQ restaurant was located inside a convenient store/gas station! It has a bakery & homemade chocolate candy...which we couldn't resist after our meal. I had the pork rib & brisket combo with loaded mashed potatoes and BBQ beans; my husband had the sausage link sandwich & my mom had the chopped beef sandwich.... More

I used to love to go to Luther's BBQ and eat their big, juicy, meaty ribs. However, since Luther's closed in the Houston area years ago I have been on the search for ribs as good as those, usually ending up with BBQ bones. Finally found big, meaty, juicy ribs at Big Horn BBQ. If you want some meat on... More

Groups from my church used to frequent Big Horn for meeting because it was close and convenient. The food was ok, certainly not Texas style bbq but ok. You will go through a line and choose your food, much like a Luby's concept, paying at the end of the counter and carrying your food to your table. You will get... More
