Warning warning warning don't go there food tasted like it was out of a can. Horrible ! When we left noticed extremely dirty fish tank that wasn't in use probably for years.

Sauce. ugh. Brisket....well, it made up for being tough by being burnt. In a city of great BBQ there has to be somebody at the bottom of the list.

Off I-45, Thomas BBQ seemed a very authentic setting and the BBQ beef was good and the sides excellent.
