Our hotel recommended this restaurant for good quality BBQ food. The food was yummy - the portions are huge. We shared the brisket and pulled pork with two sides - I particularly enjoyed the creamed corn side! Definitely worth a visit.

Texas style BBQ joint that did Not disappoint. Got the baby back ribs which were cooked perfectly! The sweet rub was really good, and espresso BBQ added a really interesting twist. Overall super happy I tried it here!

The food was okay, but the price was something to take away from the taste to me. It was only three meals on the list not all four.


So often I find BBQ is dry and not moist. This food was awesome. We have the family pack, so I had a rib, pulled pork, brisket and chicken. It was really all very yummy. My guest also enjoyed the coleslaw. So glad we found this place. Excellent food! Restaurant was cool on a hot day, clean and the staff was really nice.

Their customer service is top tier. The ribs were so tender. Ever time we asked someone where could we get some good BBQ they said Pappas, and they did not upset us.

Excellent Location and ambience. Very quick service and staff were friendly and helpful. Brisket was perfect and extra juicy. Green beans were well seasoned and delicious, could’ve been a little larger on the rice portion. Only negative was a misinterpretation on the order which made it more expensive than expected.

Better than expected and for the price you could not beat it. Indoor / outdoor seating available. Only complaint is most of the tables were dirty and no one was cleaning them up.

This place is one of my favorites! From the customer service to the food! The Texas dirty rice...OMG??, the baby back ribs and the the loaded backed potato with the chicken on top!y boyfriend and I visited 4 times within our 5 week long stay in Houston, definitely a must try! Their breakfast is even good!

Really good food and the service was really good. I had the rib trio and it filled me up all the way. The sides were good too. The green beans were steamed with onions.


OMG! This place has some awesome brisket! This was our first time here and the woman at the register was so excited about the menu that she offered samples of a few different things before we ordered! She suggested her favorites and we loved every bite!We were visiting the area from a different time zone and didn't realize that they were closed for almost 20 minutes while we were visiting. They went about thier closing work and didn't say a word to us. Felt like family there. One of the most friendly staff we've experienced anywhere! I can't wait to go back!

Great food at a great price. This was our first time at a Pappas BBQ and we were not disappointed. Behind the counter, Katina was super friendly and helpful. We ordered the Family Board, which came out quickly. There is so much meat and sides for $42. The meats tasted great, especially the ribs, which were fall off the bone. The brisket was a bit dry but still good. The coleslaw and mac and cheese were both great. Overall, a wonderful experience.
