“Love the Brisket”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

This BBQ joint has been in Pearland for many years and continues to serve quality food. Killens has now taken over as number one BBQ in Pearland, but Central TX will always have a loyal following. It's not near as expensive and the sliced beef is almost always perfect. They also have excellent sides. I love their potatoe salad and baked beans. But they also have a lot of other sides that are very good. Can't go wrong eating here!

“FANTASTIC Texas Bar B Q”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

I have been going to this restaurant for years. The food is amazing, the quantity is plenty, and the prices are fair.
Eat up, and enjoy.
NOTE: You must try the banana pudding.

“Not our favorite by a longshot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

To tell the truth, we went for BBQ dinner to Killeens but they were sold out and this place was just down the street. The food was average, the service was a bit slow, and there were a lot of flies in the restaurant seating area. Overall a tremendously average experience. The atmosphere is quite fun and it was fairly crowded so someone must think its decent. I also found the price a bit high but not outrageous.

“No frills, good chopped beef”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

The chopped beef sandwiches are REALLY GOOD! The sides are okay. But the desserts - banana pudding and bread pudding - are sinful!
