Brisket tasted old and had lost any smoke flavor it may have had. Very few Patrons on a Friday night. Sauce tasted sour and old and expired, and when basted onto meat separated into water and whatever else it was. Beans were spicy and garlicy and unusually good. So, go here for beans.

Their chopped beef sandwich is worth it, but the pulled pork one was dry. Great sides - go for the beef (it is Texas after all)

Some are better than others. The one on 290 is just average. Not my favorite, but convenient. This used to be Luther's several years ago, We have some very good BBQ in Houston....this is just not it.

This place is a must stop when in the area. The pulled pork special with baked potato is enough food for 3 people!!! The potato is HUGE and all was perfect. Quality is excellent, if within 5 miles of the Hobby Airport this is the only place to eat!!! The pecan pie was better than what my sister makes, and she is one great cook, don't tell her I said theirs was better!!

This place offers many bar-b-q options such as baby back ribs, beef brisket, st louis style ribs, and chicken. The meat is not slathered in sauce but extra sauce is available. There is a variety of side dished to choose from. The mac and cheese is very creamy, the coleslaw was good and the sweet yams were ok. The pickled cucumber salad was my favorite.

The night we visited, there were several Houston PD officers that had stopped by for dinner. It's gotta be good if local the PD stop by, right?
