Central Texas BBQ opened the same year we moved to Pearland! This was one of my parents' favorite places to eat. When their longtime friends, Ray and Lony, would come over....that's what they requested.

The building is much larger than what it seems on the outside. The food is really good and the amount for each person is enough for 2+ meals....really love the bbq baked potatoes.

Driving by this restaurant the previous evening we decided to go back the next day for lunch. Staff was not friendly or welcoming.

First time here was because the popular Killens BBQ line was too long. So, came here instead. Glad we did. Everything from meats to sides to desserts was excellent and reasonably priced. Now, we don't even consider going anywhere else. This is the place for good bbq.

Have been going here for 20 plus years and it is consistently good. Family atmosphere so don't expect booze, just home cooked bbq. Good portions, not cheap, but not killers prices, and large portions Recommend sausage, mac n cheese, banana pudding.

Good barbecue, even better environment (there was great live music when we went on a Friday night). The pulled pork, sliced beef, and sweet cornbread were all great.
