Best Barbecue in Houston

Barbecue Beef Brisket
Whether you’re a foodie from Katy or Spring, you already know that BBQ in Houston is second to none. But if you want the best barbecue in Houston, what restaurants should you visit? Take a look at our top five favorites!

Pinkerton’s Barbecue

Located at 1504 Airline Drive is your source for Texas-style brisket and ribs, smoked to perfection with aged oak and sun dried mesquite. Pinkerton’s Barbecue features low and slow meats with hand-blended seasonings and made-from-scratch sauces. If prime brisket and boudin aren’t enough to satisfy that appetite, desserts like Aunt Ruby’s Blueberry Cobbler and Mrs. Beth’s Banana Cake round off any meal perfectly.


Gatlin’s BBQ

Family-owned and operated, you’ll find classic Southern staples at Gatlin’s BBQ at 3510 Ella Boulevard. The menu is packed with great options, all made with love. Grab a pulled pork sandwich or set of sliders, or indulge in a plate stacked high with ribs or chicken. Sides like smoked corn and candied yams elevate any platter, and don’t forget about Gatlin’s Wangz with sauces like raspberry habanero and their signature GBBQ.


The Pit Room

The Pit Room, located at 1201 Richmond Avenue, specializes in Central Texas-style BBQ – and customers and critics alike have taken notice! This restaurant has been named one of the best BBQ in Houston several times over, so be sure to swing by the patio and sample the goodness for yourself! In addition to smoked meats and sandwiches, you’ll find barbecue tacos like smoked chicken verde and pulled pork with cotija!

CorkScrew BBQ

Feeling lucky? Head to 26608 Keith Street to line up for CorkScrew BBQ in nearby Spring. This popular restaurant is housed in a spacious trailer, surrounded by a large patio and yard with outdoor games. Choose from salads and tacos and desserts if you’d like, but make sure to get in on the prime brisket and Duroc pulled pork before it sells out for the day – because it will!
