The Brisket House 5775 Woodway - Houston,TX 77057 281-888-0331

Surprisingly this place occupies a slot in an upscale strip mall and does its smoking in a modern enclosed pit. The Houston Post reviewer recommended this place and I followed her lead and got a three meat BBQ PLATE of fatty Brisket, Pork Ribs, and Chicken with Cole Slaw and Baked Potato Salad. All the meats had wonderful smoke flavor with all being moist. The brisket literally melted in my mouth it was so tender. It packed great flavor also. The ribs were not quite fall of the bone but very tender and very smoky with a great rub. The chicken was the pleasant surprise because it tends to dry out and the skin get rubbery at some places. This was moist and tender with slightly crispy skin. The side were so-so. The baked potato salad was not any better than a standard one and the cole slaw was too watery. However I liked the fact that the sauce was not put on the meat and came in a syrup dispenser. It was a spicy vinegar based sauce that I did use eventfully as the it cut the richness of the meat. Would definitely return here
