Pappas is very much cafeteria style dining, but once you've tucked into the heap of tender brisket, that doesn't matter at all. Sides are good, with a range of selections that all make sense in a BBQ context.

I visited for my second time, the food is good the quantities are small compared to other major BBQ places in Texas. I enjoyed it the food was good top quality. The service was good, the seating was plentiful and the place was very clean. I will definitely eat there again as it is next door to my current hotel.

Not until I moved from Houston did I realize how much I'd miss barbeque baked potatoes. On a business trip to IAH I had to get the bbq baked potato for old times' sake. This is some of the best food in the world!

walking around downtown houston, we saw this restaurant- walked inside to find a clean, well light, inviting atmosphere where people appeared as if they were enjoying their meals.
the food presentations- salads, etc were visually appealing, however medical conditions dictate simple foods which we were able to request and found enjoyable.
even if we couldn't eat the house specialties, it was a pleasure seeing the different dishes, with large portions, that people were enjoying,and watching their interactions while dining.
Hearty Appetite and enjoy your menu choice.

Visited this place by recommendation of a friend. It's the Best BBQ I have ever had in Houston. The taste is very close to the most authentic BBQ I have in remote villages of central Texas AND it's in the city! The price is very reasonable and the atmosphere is quite western.
