Great BBQ!!! In my opinion this is more of a high end BBQ restaurant. Brisket and sausage is always good. Prices are a little higher than one would expect at a BBQ joint however this is more than a joint. It is a quality meal. Staff always good.

I think this place is over-rated. The food was just okay, but the service was great. I don't think it was worth the money, and I think we could get the same product at a cheaper and closer restaurant.

The County Line serves great barbecue and lots of it. Ribs, brisket, chicken, sausage. And a really great smoked prime rib. Potato salad, baked beans, fresh baked bread. You can't go wrong. Good barbecue sauce too and that's important. Very casual atmosphere and good service.

Everyone bragged on this place when we moved up to this side of town years ago. We've been there several times, but it's very mediocre. Maybe I'm just ruined growing up with Joe's down in Alvin!!

We had family in town a few months ago and one fo the things that they really wanted to eat while they were here was some "authentic" Texas barbeque. We have tried a few places while we were here and while the food is OK, it wasn't what I would classify as "authentic." The place that we thought came the closest actually closed a few months ago.

The County Line had come highly recommended by family and friends, and we had a buy one meal, get one free coupon in our Entertainment book, so we decided to test it out. We arrived early (shortly before 5), and so it was not very crowded and we were promptly seated. The location is open and spacious and the decor is set up to give you a feeling of being in the old west.

The menu is not extensive, but they have all of their bases covered in terms of BBQ. Essentially, you can choose from smoked ham, sausage, chicken, smoked turkey breast, beef ribs, baby back ribs, and beef brisket in a platter, combination plate, sandwich, or "all you can eat." The platters come with homemade potato salad, cole slaw, and beans. They also bring honey wheat bread to your table, and the homemade white bread is also worth trying. The food was amazing, the portions were generous, and we were not disappointed. We all took home leftovers.

The prices are reasonable and range from $5.99-$7.99 for the sandwiches, $7.99 (for the "lite" platter) to $18.99 (for the rib platter), and $16.99-$26.99 for the all you can eat combinations.

If you're looking for great Texas BBQ, this is the place to try! It's also a great place to take family or friends who are visiting. It was a bit of a drive for us, but it was definitely worth it!

The baby backs are great! I have been eating at County Line since 1987, still do once a week. Hard to order other things because the baby backs are so good. My Rotary club meets here every Friday Lunch and I do not get tired. The beef ribs and smoked prime rib are better than any in town. One of the best restaurants in Willowbrook area.
Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

I grew up going to County Line BBQ and recently moved back to Houston after 10 years abroad...I was excited to get back to good ole Texas BBQ and headed straight to the County Line...amazingly, the food was just as good as I remebered it to be....moist, smoked brisket and tender, flavorful baby back ribs... and the best homemade bread I've ever had! We were there on a weekend night and were pleased to find that they serve one of the best smoked prime ribs in town on Friday and Saturday evenings. We had a group of 30 and reserved one of the private banquet rooms...the atmosphere was private, casual and inviting...the service impeccable! Thank you County Line for making my homecoming truly special!

Cons: none

at first i was really excited to try this place out because it was on the a show on the food network. the motto fits it alright "nobody leaves hungry" because once you eat the horrendous food you lose your appetite! meat is flavorless has no smoky flavor whatsoever. gotta fight the meat on the rib to get it off. the best thing about my meal was the bake potato. portions small for the price. i'd much rather go to pappa's bbq or good co. and the service was BAD the waiter was rude. there were only two other tables there and it still took forever for the waiter to take our order. we had a table of seven and not one person was satisfied! will never go back nor recommend to anyone!!!!!!!!!!

The most overated BBQ. This place sells commercial BBQ that has no real pit flavor. The brisket and ribs don't really have that real smoke flavor that is real BBQ. The sausage is good but you get a very little piece. Because you get very small portions for the price at this place. The sauce and sides are ok but don't make up for overpriced and undersmoked meats. How in the world could this place be the editor's pick???? Have they ever had real pit BBQ?????

My fiance recommended County Line and I have only really liked one place because of the barbque sauce but after trying County Line I love it. I got a chopped beef sandwich and a fully loaded bake potato and I was thinking it was going to be small but I was so wrong I had to force myself to finish it all because I was very full but it was so yummy. Their chopped beef sandwich is not on regular slices of bread this was on I want to say faccocia but I could be wrong but my point is it was not boring. I took a bite of my fiance's ribs and the meat was so tender, o and yum o on the potato salad. The sausage was very good too, even my kids ate it and wanted more. The service was great, it was a friday night and no waiting list. Our server was great also. He made sure we didn't have to wait on anything and was respectful by asking if the kids could have their desert if they were done with dinner. He also gave us his opinion on the appetizers. So this place I would definately recommend if you are a barbque lover.

ok let me say that i am a BBQ person with family members that KNOW the best receipes for bbq from every region...... i had been to the one in albuquerque bbq was ok and loved the creamed corn. i was willing to give it another try and was all jazzed to go. we had a training which meant a lot of guest from out of town so one friday we took them here. i was not thrilled with the fact that they did not allow reservations for a large group of people and that we were told sure we will take the information but that does not mean you will all be seated. it just happened that everyone showed just before the rush so that went well. the service was great and they were very attentive. i ordered a mixed 3 meat platter. what can i say. the salad was good, the corn was on the cob. the little stub of sausage was interesting, the brisket dry as the sierra and i had to fight the bone for the meat of the rib. dessert was cobbler that was way too terribly sweet. that was all i could taste-sugar. all in all if you go here, do so for the drinks. i did notice that the albuquerque seemed to have more options...or maybe i just missed the creamed corn with green chili.

After hearing how their ribs are "legendary," my boyfriend and I were excited to try their barbecue. We were seated promptly, and our food came out pretty fast. Our first reaction.... the serving size is so SMALL even for the "hearty-size" platter. So we though, well maybe it's just that good they don't want to waste it. So we tried it. HORRIBLE. The brisket was dry and flavorless, and worst of all, I had to fight with the ribs to get the meat off. I expected so much better from this place. Texas Roadhouse is far worth the drive. The meat actually falls of the bone with just a tap of the fork. The servers were prompt and nice though. The atmostphere is neat. Oh yeah, they also took of only $5 off of our $7 discount. We were so disappointed, we didn't even bother telling them about their mistake.

Perhaps I am bias since I grew up on the NW side of Houston and had the opportunity to eat at the Countyline more times than I can count, but this place makes you LOVE Texas BBQ! The portions are huge and sooo tasty! The servers are friendly and the price is well worth it for the amount of food you get. It's perfect for large groups and you are seated and served promptly.

I know this because I was just there. No more than 15 minutes ago, today, March 13. They have been open on Monday's since June '05. Becuase it was a Monday night, I was seated promptly. The service was excellent. Of course, there were probably 10 tables that were taken. Food was served qucikly. I hd the 5 meat sampler. Very good all around, excellent sauce, but the beans and potato salad were GREAT.

This place has by far, the best barbeque in the state. The meat is smoked correctly. The beef ribs are better than any I've ever had. The locations in Houston as every bit as good as those in Austin.

The atmoshere is very nice. The margarita's rock and the Jack Daniels Bread pudding is a great end to a great meal. Its a barbecue place you can bring a date too!!!

Growing up in Austin, they were the best place to go for good barbecue. Their meat was always smoky, dry and lean, with a good sauce. Their ribs were very good, their chicken was awesome, and we all fought over their sausage. They were pretty pricey, but you never went there for a cheap meal as they were located in a scenic spot that overlooked Lake Travis. When I moved to Houston I discovered Goode Company and fell in love with their food because it reminded me of County Line. I heard that County Line had expanded to Houston, what happened to them to make them last place??? (I just moved to VA a few months ago)

I enjoyed the original in Austin very much, so was very happy to see that this Houston edition matches the Austin one in quality of food and service. The chicken actually fell off the bone it was so tender! I look forward to visiting again soon, with neighbors and friends in tow.

Try the others, then try Williams Smokehouse. Ask "Cedric" to make you Ray's special (meal for 2), it's a chopped beef conbo with 2-pork ribs, and links on the side. Your cardiologist will hate you but it taste great and you wont regret trying it.
Good eating!

This is the prettiest BBQ place I have ever seen anywhere. It is particularly romantic (Romantic BBQ????) close to the holidays. Also I have been there on the weekends when the music was great. The potatoe salad is some of the best. The barbequed meats are succulent. Very good.

The big-daddy beef rib plate was bigger than anything I have ever seen. The all you can eat BBQ plates are the best way to go. You definitely have to try the homemade bread, cobbler and ice cream. This puts all the other BBQ places to shame.
