Several family members and I tried Corkscrew BBQ on the recommendation of someone. Let me say that the line was long; we waited outside quite a while before we were able to get in the building. I would guess it was probably an hour from...More

Excellent BBQ though the line can be a tad long, and don't get there too late or they WILL be out of your favorite meats.

Corkscrew BBQ has relocated to Old Town Spring on Keith St. In the old location previously occupied by Hyde's Cafe. Looking forward to great BBQ previously served in The Woodlands.
