Always in search for good Brisket.... this wasn't it. Brisket sandwich was dry and not a lot of meat on it, or much flavor. Good BBQ does not require sauce... had to douse this one. Was in town for business and drug co-workers here for...More

This place is really good. The atmosphere is chill and they even have a ton of board games for the kids to play when waiting for their food. While the kids play, the parents can enjoy an adult beverage and watch a sport channel. And...More

Good food, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Since I am not a sports fan, I prefer to go when there are no major sporting events as it can get loud and a bit rowdy.

Everyone knows Kaminski's has great ribs but I recommend that you try their pulled pork sandwich. Comes with an amazing Barbeque sauce and choice of sides.

Checked out this place during the MLB World Series and it didn't disappoint! Brisket was good, but not as good as Texas. The Beer and the service was awesome, best part was the atmosphere...great place to watch Houston winning one of their games!
