Poor choice for dinner. Staff is very friendly and the place is clean. Good music on a Saturday night. Food is way over priced for what you are served. Bbq is drenched in watered down bbq sauce. Brisket is served very thin and is dry....More

received recommendation for this eatery & since we love BBQ, here we are. Food was filling, tasty not so much but edible. Meats were better without the BBQ sauce which was bland at best. Also tried the banana pudding, don't know what their recipe is,...More

Reliably good every time, so many sides cooked in Southern traditions. The smoked pit meats are outstanding, desserts like cobbler and banana pudding. Yum.

The lunch special is worth it. 13.50 they don't skimp on meat or sides or the large dessert. The cobbler and bread pudding is a must. Laid back atmosphere and nice friendly staff. If you want taste bbq this is a place to start.

the baked potato with chopped beef is excellent. Another favorite is the Diana plate. All plates come with a large drink, bread, onions, pickles, and jalapeños. Great food, small town feel.

We've been enjoying Central Texas BBQ since we moved to Pearland in 2003. The atmosphere is great and the bbq is better. Good value. Good food.

Yes, as others have already suggested, I believe up to 4 are allowed per order but there is a small premium on the mixed orders like that and your portions get pretty small for each.
