If you're looking for great Texas BBQ, try eating here. They have a nice selection of meats and sides that lives up to Texas standards in every way. The BBQ sauce is not sickly sweet like some places, it's just right. You can get sandwiches or dinner plates. They have a lovely outdoor patio when the weather is nice. Wait... More

I can only tell you that to me the quality of the food is most important, which is why I eat here. Oh yea, the outstanding service is a welcome change from non friendly restaurants. Please plan on a relaxing meal is a comfortable environment.

I have been there many times. You can dine in or take out. This is the best barbque around. It is a must to visit when visiting the Kemah or League City, Texas areas.

BBQ is very good. I don't recommend the chicken fried steak. Convenient location and decent atmosphere.

My whole family loves this place! My kids and husband swear by the chicken tenders, but I am a huge fan of the ribs and chopped beef! Red River's sauce is the best you're going to find anywhere. Period. We even buy the sauce when we buy meat from other BBQ joints lol
