Central Texas Bbq has been a great local establishment for years. Usually very quick service, lots of seating and the food is incredible!

Just off the Railroad Track, this place is a step back in time. The food is great, and the night I went there they had a live guitarist singing country tunes. I especially liked the brisket.

Good place for BBQ nothing to write home about. Does not have as long a line as the new place down the street does, sometimes there is a line but usually 10-15min wait. They may want to add some more help on the serving line!! The potato salad is great BBQ is good enough. Price is to high for what... More

The very best bar b que in the Pearland Texas area. The meat on the ribs falls of the bones. The brisket is as tender as a mother's love. Don't leave without having some peach cobbler.

I have tried several in the area and do not think Central is trying as hard as they used to. They have folks that come because they are loyal. It is not bad food but, not memorable. I like the sides better than the 'cue. The desserts are good as well. Prices are decent. Easy to find, parking can be... More

My husband and I have eaten here many, many times. There have been only two times that I have been dissatisfied with my pork ribs.

I'm not a BBQ snob by any stretch but I only give Central BBQ an average rating. Almost all BBQ joints have okay BBQ and to me, the sides are what make or break a place for me when the BBQ is average in regards as to whether I'll return or not. With Central, my complaint would be that the... More
