Go Low-and-Slow with the Best BBQ in West Houston

Texas is known for barbecue, but up until recently, Houston didn’t get the respect it deserves. That’s all changed, and the Bayou City is now receiving lots of recognition for its quality ‘que. In fact, there are so many great choices it can be hard to narrow down where to get your brisket and ribs, so we’ve found the best bbq in West Houston for you. Check out these four finger-lickin’ spots next time you’re in the mood for some of that smokey goodness.

Roegels Barbecue Co.
When a place lands on Texas Monthly’s Top 50 Barbecue Joints in Texas list, you know it has to be good. Makes sense, since Roegels Barbecue Co.’s Russell Roegel built his resume at Bodacious BBQ and Baker’s Ribs before opening a place with his name on it. They offer daily specials, like pork belly on Wednesday and pastrami beef ribs on Friday, to go along with their menu of meats by the pound and plates, which come with two sides. Be sure to save room for dessert, because you won’t want to miss their homemade bourbon banana pudding.


The Brisket House
The meats at The Brisket House are smoked overnight in a Southern Pride smoker and they add both oak and pecan to give it a unique flavor. This means you get a nice, tender brisket with that smoky flavor barbecue aficionados crave. It’s a given that you’ve got to get the brisket, but you’ll also want to try some of their jalapeno sausage and beef short ribs.


Pappas Bar-B-Q
Pappas Bar-B-Q has several locations in the Houston area, including a few on the west side. Their first spot downtown grew to be so popular they had to expand, and now it’s one of the largest family-owned and -operated restaurant companies in the country. Their wood-burning bbq pits keep the meat rotating continuously so it comes out evenly cooked. They use mesquite and hickory, so expect a bit of sweetness with that smoke.


Rudy’s Bar-B-Q
Rudy’s Bar-B-Q may have originated out of Leon Springs, but it’s one of Houston’s favorite spots for low-and-slow. All of their meats are wood smoked over oak instead of mesquite since oak burns a little slower. They’re known for their special dry rub and their famous tangy “Sause.” Stop in for some tasty smoked turkey and brisket and a side of Rudy’s beans.
