The barbecue here is always great. I work in the area and have referred many people and have always heard great feedback from them. I read the reviews below and seriously doubt the authenticity of several of them. I fully understand that

This is by far the worst BBQ place ever. I was given a fixed menu with no choice; The brisket, a link and pinto beans with some stale bread. The brisket was like shoe soles, the link went into the trash as it was oily and shriveled up.

This place is serving barbq on a shoestring budget, and they nickel and dime you for the condiments like 60 cents for pickles or peppers. The best thing about the place is that personnel was friendly. The barbq wasn't bad, but there are

My dear Jerry 4400, the only nice thing about this restaurant is the entrance and the interior, all the rest is very forgettable. Of all the BBC restaurants in Houston this must be the worst, no doubt. I tried it. Very consistent.

We love barbecue and our favorite barbecue place is Good Co. But, we're always trying different Restaurants. So we decided to try this one. The place is kind of nice and inviting. So we were three and ordered. To begin they served the food

Outstanding BBQ. Definately worth a try. Homemade sausage is perfection. Brisket is fork tender. Very busy during lunch so go early to avoid long lines.

What a disappointment...meat was cold and really difficult to chew. Sauce came in a bottle and porded out like watery ketchup. I certainly would not recommend this place to my friends or anyone else.

First, a Loaded Potato Bowl, and a COKE 10 OZ BOTTLE $10.50, not a good value. I felt violated for my money. Menu is very limited. Sorry, our party of three will not be back.

I work very close by Houston BBQ. Co. and I have been going there for 3 and a half years. I am European and I have travelled extensively around the world. I certainly appreciate good food and authenticity. The owner and staff are always extremely friendly and professional and they wok hard to ensure you get the best quality product and service. If you know of any better brisket in town let me know. I have been looking and I have not found it yet. This is a place where I would take visitors from the other side of the pond so they can experiment second to none BBQ.

My favorite BBQ restaurant in Houston. It's very old school so don't expect tons of sides like Mac & Cheese, etc. This is a BBQ place, not Luby's.

The brisket is very consistently flavorful & tender. The sausage is awesome, especially the jalapeno sausage.

My wife made a recent visit to this restaurant and ordered some food to go. After overcharging her for the food, she brought this to the attention of George, the man who serves the food. My wife in her southern charm, called the man sweetheart and brought to his attention we were overcharged for food. He said, "Don't call me sweetheart b--ch."

My wife was appalled, I'm glad I was not there. What an unprofessional, insecure man, poor little George. I have talked to other African Americans who have also been treated poorly, but none have been called the B word to their face.

The issue was brought up to management thru e-mail, and they refused to apologize or correct the situation, and did not even give my wife a reply to her e-mail.

On top of it, this BBQ is nothing out of the ordinary that you couldn't get at any other BBQ joint that uses oak in the firebox Overrated, and extremely rude.

while visiting the Houston area I wanted to partake in some of the great BBQ that Houston has to offer. I decided to try Houston Barbecue Company because of the high rating site visitors gave the restaurant. Unfortunately, the selection was small and did not induce appetite. If you're looking for an enjoyable and tasty dining experience, please keep looking.

This place is packed at lunch for a good reason. The ribs are cooked just right. Try the sausage. They make it from a secret recipe. The line can be long but worth the wait.

We went to this 'straunt based on the ratings here and man were we disappointed. Our first clue should have been that the place was empty - we were literally the only people there at 12:15 on a Saturday afternoon. We went through the line which was reminiscent of Luling City Market (IMO, the best BBQ joint in Houston) so I thought things would be good.

Wrong.

This place really kinda stinks. The meat was tough and the dude behind the counter cut it wrong so we needed the largest toothpicks ever. The ribs were tasteless and chewy. The beef sausage was unremarkable. In short, this place does not deliver.

Even Pappas' is better than this place.

My advice? Skip it and head down to Richmond for some real BBQ.

Wake up nothing, to the post below. This resturant is honest to goodness good BBQ. I go during lunch. I always get the jalapeno link sausage and potatosalad. They have BBQ sauce at the tables you sit at, and I wished I could take home that bottle everytime I went. It is priced decent too. The wait in line can sometimes be long but once you get up there it moves right along. They guy that cuts the meat, he's really nice too.

Does anybody at City Search ever read the user reviews. The only two in 2008 were terrible but City Search still has a high rating on this place.. What I see from the reviewers is it's high priced, small or meager portions and not very good tasting. Wake up City Search

Pros: brisket

Cons: price

.

Brisket: The pieces I had were good - moist, nice char (despite the almost complete absence of any seasoning) and plenty of smoke.

Ribs: Barely average. No rub in sight, smoky enough, but no flavor (and plenty of fat on my portion, unfortunately). Tad chewy, too.

Sauce: Way too vinegary and mustardy, it COMPLETELY masks all flavor of whatever unfortunate piece of meat happens to get so much as a drop on it. Good sauce enhances, not overpowers (and this sauce would overpower a jalapeno).

Potato salad: More like mashed potato salad, but I didn't mind. Nice tang, but too much onion.

Sausage: The links here are... Weird. I'm not sure how much meat goes in there, but it can't be much. My link tasted more like bread than any meat product - almost exactly like a hush puppy in a crackly skin.

Value: HA! WAAAAAAAY too overpriced - $11 for a single sausage, two slices of brisket, and one dinky side? Please. Like pickles? Hope you like paying for those, or jalapenos at 50 cents a pop.

Atmosphere: Nice enough, I suppose, they're trying to be rustic with the wooden walls and tables but the semi-fancy bar in the corner belies it's upscale West-side heart. Went twice at lunchtime during the week and these people know their customers: Stiff-collar yuppies from the nearby energy corridor who don't mind shelling out $15 for three ribs and three slices of brisket (as the guy in front of me did).

All in all, a place worth avoiding.

Just because it looks like a BBQ joint and smells like a BBQ joint doesn't mean it is going to be a good BBQ joint. The very first thing you see when you get in line to order is the fact that they are going to nickel-and-dime you death. Jalepenos - 10c each, pickle spears - 25c ea., just to name a few. Then I ask for the Friday special and it is $6.99 for a small pulled pork sandwich and an even smaller bowl of beans. I am assuming that the drink is over $2 beacuase my total was $9.53 for the daily speacil ($6.99) and a tea. The only think that I found to be "included" was the slice of pickles. Other than this if you are looking for over priced BBQ that is average tasting...Houston BBQ is your spot!

To me BBQ is about the sauce and ribs. I like both here, my ribs were very meaty had lots of flavor. I like the sauce but may not be for everyone, it is central texas style. The prices are higher then some but all BBQ places are high now. If you like Luling city BBQ then you will like this place, if you dont then you will not.

Great look, decor. The meat is FANTASTIC. The sauce is NOT good, it's a bit creepy in fact. Yes I know the history behind this restaurant....doesn't change the taste and texture of the sauce though. Staff is mediocre. Wish they had onion rings.

Where do I start. I will start with the dramatic, but true statement; "This was the absolute worse dining experience of my life.

Problem 1: No Plates, they served me on construction paper (no kidding) 2. Sides. Their "famed" potato salad was okay, but our only other options were Coleslaw and pinto beans. Along with their "complimentary" supermarket sliced white bread. I was just getting over the shock of no plates when I was offered white bread out of a bag by the register! 3. Portions. Their portions were not very generous. For a $6 ala carte order of ribs (price w/out sides or drink), I got two ribs.

The tragedy is that their ribs and chicken aren't horrible. It is slightly below average, but not horrible. Certainly not good enough to overcome the experience. As I diner, they made me feel as if I was begger being fed scraps of meat and few slices of old bread.

A lot more effort on the part of the owner and staff is needed to make Houston BBQ an adequate restaurant.

WOW!! I absolutly loved it!! The service was great, but even better at the bar. The night crew working there really know what they are doing, when it comes to BBQ. The only complaint that I have is the potatoe bowls, they really need to have a better selection of toppings. Other than that I will be going back several times a week. I highly recommend HOUSTON BBQ COMPANY!!!!!!!

All I can say about Houston Barbecue Company is it was adequate. The food was nothing special (brisket, sausage), and the sauce was bland. The potato salad was pretty good, though. Service, again, was adequate. They were not rude, but not very helpful either. Maybe they were ready to go home, but it was 7:30 on a Saturday night. I should have known better when there were only 3-4 other people in the restaurant at such a normally busy time. If you are in dire need of BBQ, it will hold you over, but I wont be back.

$7.00 for a little "Loaded Potato Bowl"?? I ordered a baked potato bowl and I was extremely disappointed. The price was very, very high $7.09. It was just a little potato (not an actual potato), just "some" potato, cheese and cut up turkey meat that looked like lunch meat. No sour cream, no green onions, not even any butter. I will not be back.

I had the pork ribs and my husband had the chicken. Both were tough, dry, and flavorless. I've had beef jerky that was easier to eat! Wanted to add some sauce to my bone dry ribs but after taking a cautionary taste I started to gag. It was almost pure vinegar! I just don't get how everyone could love this place. Maybe our timing was off (we went early Sunday evening seemingly before the dinner rush) but we are NOT giving this place a second chance to find out! On the other hand I have to grudgingly admit that the potato salad was the best I ever had.

Head to the Swinging Door and do not stop at this place. HBC had terrible food, service, and selection. Not sure why people were rating it so high. The brisket was dry, the sausage was nasty, and the bbq sauce was terrible. The service people seemed irritated that we showed up as they would rather send text messages on their phone. Will not be going back to this place and will not suggest it to anybody either!

I would have to say this my favorite bbq restaurant. Everythere is there is perfect; from the food to the servers. They are very polite and cut your food just the way you want it. I enjoyed the atmosphere, it's not to loud nor to quiet. The food of course was delicious, I had a jalapeno link with a couple ribs. The sauce just topped everything off. It was great, i would have to say I will be coming back for more.

I found this place on a whim early last year. After eating, I was amazed at how similar the food was to Luling Market, one of my favorites. I found out the whole story from my server. The links and the potato salad are the best in Houston. I also love their sauce. A must do.

We recently had an office reunion at HBC and it worked out great. The place is perfect for a no-host gathering. Everyone could eat when they wanted and order according to their budget and taste. The food is always exceptionally good. I recommend the ribs and sausage. There is no better in Houston.

This is simply the best barbeque on the west side of town. I'm a Memphis gal, longing for something similar to home, but....I can make do on their ribs and smoked chicken. The chicken gets VERY high marks!

The ambience is low-key, low-tech, but...not too...low-brow. An overall, unfussy, place to eat.

Cost is: Medium to Average for Barbeque.

Seat yourself, pour your own soft drink or tea, and listen to the music while you eat.

The ambience is low-key, low-tech, but...not too...low-brow. An overall, unfussy, place to eat.

Cost is: Medium to Average for Barbeque.

Seat yourself, pour your own soft drink or tea, and listen to the music while you eat.

Pros: Good Food, Cafeteria Style Serv., Clean and tidy

Cons: Price, Tables too close, Can get loud

This is the only place I will eat BBQ. It just melts in your mouth. So far, everything I've tried has been good. Fortunately, it's right by work and I take home an order at least once a week. I would make the drive to pick up an order if it weren't, though. Once you taste it, so will you! It's not cheap, but the prices are about average, I think.

Pros: Quick, Courteous

Cons: Cigarette Smoke

Brisket was fatty, sauce was too spicy, perhaps to cover up the bland taste of the meat. Meat was served on paper, which makes this place seem even more pretentious-- most BBQ places were butcher shops, and this place obviously never was. The paper tears when you try to cut your meat. The sides and sandwiches are served on dishes, which makes the paper seem all that more ridiculous. The decor is a mixture of western, sports, and placards that laud their BBQ, which is nothing more than average at best. There is a bar in the middle of the restaurant, to appeal to the happy hour crowd as well, which was kind of rowdy when I went, so I won't be bringing the kids.

Pros: plenty of parking

While you are there eating the best BBQ ever ( and the best potato salad), sit at the bar and talk to Tina. She is the best bartender and makes you feel right at home even if you are eating alone. I eat there all the time ans so do my co-workers.

We wanted to surprise Mom on Mother's Day so we had the folks at Houston Barbecue Company send a package to her in Minnesota. I was concerned about the whole idea but my wife talked me into it. What a great idea it turned out ot be. Mom reported the food arrived and was absolutely delicious. I recommend this as a good gift for someone who has everything. We will use Houston Barbecue again for speical gifts to be shipped or delivered locally. When you call, ask for Kurt. He really knows what he is doing. Great food!

This sausage recipe is the best I have ever tasted. I have eaten in many barbeque joints and had several different formulas but Houston Barbecue is my favorite. They have the real deal on all their food.
