Barbeque Resteraunt - Houston Area

by lryder71

I will be in Houston the weekend of April 8th with my daughter and dad. I have read about quite a few resteraunts, but can't find one that seems to be true barbeque. I'm looking for smoked, open pit- the REAL stuff- ribs, brisquet... We're very causual, so nothing fancy.
Any help is very much appriciated.

You won't find as good of barbeque in Houston as you would around Austin, but there are a few that aren't to bad.

Try Drexler's on Pierce near downtown, or the County Line on Cutten rd. in northwest Houston. These are both real Texas style barbeque. Stay away from chains like Luther's. Luther's is not Texas style, it's more southern style and they cook in electric smokers.

There's plenty of "hole in the wall" type places in and around town that probably are worth a try. Just look for a smoker cooking with real wood and fire in any place you go.

Enjoy,
Marc

I agree with RIDER, try Drexlers or Pappas BBQ. all the others like Luthers, Salt Grass are more expensive and they'll serve you a small amount.

Goode & Co. - laid back, casual atmosphere. Several locations to choose from. Besides great barbeque, they've got the best peach cobbler and pecan pie around. Nicely appointed decor.

Green's Barbeque on Almeda Rd. near the Houston Medical Center and Hermann Park for authentic Texas-style barbeque. Nothing fancy here, but the food makes up for the lack of atmosphere. Family owned and operated, they have been a mainstay in Houston for decades.

Luling City Market has great barbeque. 4726 Richmond Avenue

Stay away from the chains, Pappa's, Luthers.

Getting to Houston

by keeweechic

By Air : There are two major commercial airports in Houston. The largest is Bush International (IAHand about 23 miles north of downtown and the other is William P Hobby (HOU).

By Train: Amtrak runs through Houston between Orlando and Los Angeles. 902 Washington Ave- just north of downtown.

By Road: Houston is encircled by Interstate 610 which is known as The Loop. Interstate I-10 intersects it and then links the city to San Antonio (west) and New Orleans (east). Interstate I-45 comes down from Dallas (north) and continues on to Galveston (south). There were some major works going on when we were there. At one stage heading east and north of downtown we found we couldn't get off and travelled quite some distance before we could.

From San Antonio : 4 hours; Dallas : 4 hours 30 minutes; New Orleans : 7 hours.

By Trolley : There is a free Metro trolley service downtown which stop at remote parking, shops, major hotels/restaurants, the courthouse, Enron Field and the Convention Centre. The trolleys are replica vintage trolley buses.

Great BBQ

by msbrandysue about County Line BBQ

County Line has a country, diner, cook-out feel. It is very laid back and have always enjoyed the food. You can come here for a laid back date, after a ball game, or with a big group, and find it meets your needs.

Taken from their website: For 20 years this fun roadhouse has been tucked away among the tall pines of north Houston. Always a hit with 3 private banquet rooms, exceptional full service catering and on the spot deliveries. Not to mention the Totally Texan dining room complete with a full cowhide covered bar, picturesque backyard Gazebo and a cozy stone patio. Open 7 days a week. Lunch and Dinner

There are a few in the area so be sure to check the website for the closest one near you!

Picture coming soon... They have a turkey dish that comes with black pepper on it. It was fantastic. The best BBQ turkey plate I've ever had. I can't get anything other than that! Also, their beef brisket and sausage are fantastic.

Lamborghini

by agapotravel

The Lamborghini Gallardo was an awesome car!! It had paddle shifters, and you could shift them manually, or it would do it for you automatically. We found that it was a much smoother ride when we shifted manually. I LOVED the sound it made when it downshifted! Definitely a dream to drive!

About 20 miles east of...

by tarush

About 20 miles east of downtown, the San Jacinto battleground marks the spot where Texas won its independence from Mexico. The complex houses the towering San Jacinto Monument, the San Jacinto Museum of History and Battleship Texas.

The true story of the battle is told in Texas Forever!! The Battle of San Jacinto screening in the Jesse H. Jones Theater. The battleship, which was commissioned in 1914 and saw action in both the Allied invasions at Normandy and on Okinawa, was presented to the people of Texas as the first memorial ship in 1948. Admission to the museum is free, but the film is $3.50 for adults.

For more information, contact the museum at (281) 479-2421.
