My favorite BBQ place - it's local - not a chain and they have some of the best BBQ in Texas !! Brisket - Ribs - Crawfish in season - yummy Jalapeno cheese bread and cornbread and absolutely, they make better sweet cabbage than my mother's!! Save room for banana pudding !! It's very casual, reasonably priced and very friendly.... More

First time I've had Texas BBQ in Texas and all can say is yum! I usually order BBQ pork but I took the advice from others and ordered Beef Brisket. Why do they give you a knife? It's so tender you can cut it with your fork! $12.95 for one meat and two sides. GREAT DEAL. I went with the... More

The Bar B Que was really good. Different from Alabama but very good. The ribs fell off the bone the brisket was... More

Amazing food and customer service! We are visiting from Arizona and had to try some Texas BBQ. This was a great choice! I would return! I had the brisket and jalapeño sausage. They were both amazingly good and I tried my husband's spicy ribs which were excellent and they were spicy, they did not disappoint.

Food would have been great but ALL the meat we ordered was ruined by tasting and smelling like INTENSE smoke. Stunk up the whole house and was inedible. Would have returned it and asked for money back but we drove home to eat it. Obviously this isn't how the meat is usually cooked, I must have come in on an... More

This was my first time walking in to stockyard bbq and I must say it won't be my last. I love BBQ and this place is pretty darn good. The meats were so tender and juicy. The brisket was my favorite. The ribs were so packed with flavor and falling off the bone. That dirty rice was hmm hmm good... More

My wife found this place while looking for Bar-B-Q places in Houston, TX. We tried it and it was great. You get a lot of food for your buck. I would go back again when we revisit Houston, TX.
