“Best Barbeque in Houston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

There are several locations to chose from, the Kiby Drive spot, just south of US59 is probably the mecca. The Blalock/I-10 a close second. Food, selection, price, atmosphere all play out perfectly. Whether on a date or with family...well...it's lick the bones good !

“Mesquite Grilled BBQ at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

The meats here are extra tasty because of the slow cooked meats over mesquite wood. The iced tea and homestyle deserts are also tasty.

“Heard about it but not the best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Had a 3 meat and mine was very good with ribs brisket and sausage. My wife's ordered chicken and it was dry. Overall I was disappointed with the sauce. Will try another BBQ place when we go back to Houston in a few weeks. Arkansas BBQ is better.

“Not as "Goode" as I'd hoped”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

Got the 3 meat combo with a slice of jalapeno bread. The brisket was good, not excellent, The turkey was tasty, the spicy pork was excellent. The jalapeno bread was fresh and tasty.

What kept this from being a higher review - the BBQ sauce. It was weird tasting and just not good, almost with a hint of tomato soup flavor.

“Texas brisket and great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

Used to eat here in the 1980s when we lived in Houston. Stopped in while driving through in 2012. Amazing. The place has not changed one bit. Brisket was still good and the buffalo head still on the wall. It's definitely worth stopping by if in town.
