Not only are the ribs, brisket, sausage excellent, the sides are great as well. We recently tried City Market in Luling who some say has the best barbecue in Texas. It didn't even hold a candle to Corkscrew BBQ. By the way, it has moved to Old Town Spring.

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.

Okay actually was here for business, but with colleagues from Georgia. I promised them great BBQ having lived in both Atlanta and Houston I wanted them to experience the difference. This was at the new location and even though we were there well before noon there was already a line and limited parking. But things moved quickly and as others... More

Go early and be prepared to wait in line but you won't be disappointed!! We missed the pork ribs but the brisket, beef rib, pulled pork and sausage were fantastic!! The sides were very tasty too!

It is over the top delicious and hands down, best BBQ in town. Tender meat with perfect BBQ flavors and sauce. Our group had sandwiches and sides of cole slaw mac cheese and potato salad. The sandwich itself was filling as you want to eat every tiny bite. First time here and it just moved first week of October to... More

You have to try the brisket. It's moist and delicious. Everything else there is very good too. The desserts are homemade. The beef ribs are very good and while huge are a bit pricey. The beans are wonderful. I stock up when I go.

Amazing food! My favorite is the turkey! Get there early because once they sell out, that item is done for the day! Great staff! Great food! Great for catering too!

Corkscrew use to be the best kept secret in The Woodlands area. The secret is out. They are the best in the area without a doubt. Month visited? All of them since Jan 2013!!!
