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

We live in Alabama and have heard how good Texas Bar B Que was from friends. We came to Houston to go to MD Anderson with my daughter. Bar B Que has kinda turned into a comfort food. 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.

Suggested to us by the staff at our hotel. Their loaded baked potatoes are a hit with the locals that we seen there and abig hit with my wife. The brisket was melt in your mouth. Friendly staff and a great place to eat

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.

The interior is a bit dark. The menu is heavy on the meat side - don't expect anything in the way of salads. I ordered a brisket sandwich with a side of potato salad and a piece of corn bread. The corn bread was dry and inedible - I couldn't eat more than a bite without choking. No butter or... More

This place casual, quaint, friendly and fantastic. And quite frankly cheap prices. This has got to be the best value Texas dinning experience in town. I had the beef ribs, brisk, banana pudding, garlic green beans, jalapeno biscuit and mac & cheese texas style. I rolled outta this place a full and happy camper.

Collectively the 3 of us had the pulled pork sammich and ck salad which we all agreed was a 2.5 - not bad, just not great. Atmosphere is good, the service spectacular. Worth a try, maybe just wasn't our thing.
