“Old Katy BBQ Delivers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

Midway is a refreshing alternative to the endless parade of chains that overwhelm Katy, TX. While visiting the area, it was nearly impossible to find a restaurant that isn’t another prefab Landry’s tentacle or the bland spawn of some other corporate overlord.

Upon entering Midway, we might as well have arrived at Ted Nugent’s man cave, sans the Wango Tango. Dead animals, from the usual suspects (elk, deer, bear) to the troubling (a plaque-mounted photograph of a mother and son hunting team posing manically with a dead cheetah) to the fictitious (a regulation size wooly mammoth head demands attention), fill most of the available wall space. Like most Texas BBQ places, you wait in line along the right wall and order at the counter as a perma-Fox News flat screen flickers from its wedged perch in the corner above.

As for the food: the BBQ is served in old school, segmented Styrofoam platter dishes with the obligatory sliced-bread that serves as an edible napkin. The portions are medium-sized for Texas (i.e. large for the rest of the country). It is tasty.

We sampled just about everything, and everything was above average. The brisket was moist and had a good texture, the ribs were tender, the sausage had good flavor. Some people have been knocking the sides on here, but I thought they were more than adequate. Next time I’ll try the jerky as I’ve heard good things.

If you don’t have time to venture out to the rural bastions of BBQ out in Hill Country, and you don’t feel like heading to any of the other banal franchises that crowd the Katy freeway, check out Midway for some authentic Texas grub.

Ribs and brisket rock. A bit expensive but price of meat is rising quickly. I always buy some jerky here as well....
