I was recently in Houston visiting family and on a long hot day (yep, Houston heat), my dad and I decided we didn't want to cook but rather wanted to eat out. He suggested we see if No Name BBQ was still open. And, we were lucky as on the day we decided to stop in they closed at 7pm.... More

I was on a business trip and we wrapped up our appointment around 10:30. We were looking for someplace for an early lunch before flying out of Houston. No Name opened at 10:30 (I assume for all of the refinery workers that need an early lunch) so that was a bonus. The beef and the BBQ sauce were outstanding. I... More

You enter the "house" and stand in a fast moving line as 3 or 4 servers prepare your barbeque plate. The beef (sliced or chopped), sausage, chicken, ham, and ribs are all delicious. My favorite is the turkey, served... More

Picked up some bbq here for a quick lunch and was disappointed. No real smokey flavor and the sauce was just ok. I'm not sure I would be able to tell the difference between this and canned bbq. I recommend skipping it or getting something other than the bbq beef sandwich.

"Don't let the building fool you" says an earlier review, and that gets right to the nut of it. The No Name is a rough-hewn corregated metal building -- a shack, really, basically located on a highway median -- where you line up, order your food and either take it out or to your table. At lunchtime it will be... More

Been eating there for years. Best BBQ in town. I do the ribs and brisket and have never been disappointed. Mike and crew are great people. I used to eat there once a week before I retired.
