  • kellybee reviewWhy this place has remained so popular for more than 30 years is a mystery to me...The barbeque is at best average.

  • jpsizer reviewBest shrimp in town. And I've tried a lot of restaurants. Old time atmosphere and exceptional value. I hope the crowds `never` find this place.Richard Pickard

  • PureWowIt may be called the Barbecue Inn, but all the locals at this old-time Houston diner know that the fried-to-order chicken--which comes out piping hot and somehow almost greaseless-is the thing to get.

  • Redwan H.This is supposed to be the best fried chicken in the city...and the country. It definitely isn't. And by no means any good. Terribly unseasoned and bland.

  • M RGood salad, food-shrimp, chicken fried steak, & dessert. Gravy is not all that great or the baked potatoes.

  • Annie B.The most delicious fried chicken in the world, since 1946. Wonderfully old-fashioned.

  • Doug WhiteheadDelicious old fashioned restaurant.

  • Redwan H.Seriously the best chicken fried steak I've had. Flawless batter, tender meat. Unfortunately, the cream gravy has zero flavor (no pepper), which killed the meal. Check out Hickory Hollow for good CFS.

  • DebbieMy first time here. I ordered chicken fried steak. It comes with salad. I'm allergic to iceberg lettuce. Theresa offered me a credit. NOBODY does that!! I'm going to try the baked beans.

  • CultureMap Houston M.The Barbecue Inn opened in 1946. It’s still operated by the same family. Other than the prices, little has changed by the look of the original menu on the wall.

  • EaterIt's old school service with old school waitstaff. While its name deals in smoked meats, the real treasure here is the fried chicken. [Eater 38 Member]

  • John F.People don't eat BBQ here....It's all about fried. Chicken fried chicken takes 20 minutes....but totally worth it. Also chicken fried steak, fried shrimp and fried oysters rock!

  • Scott L.The best fried chicken. They give you plenty of food. Even the child's plate is heaping. Order your fries well-done; otherwise, they are too greasy.

  • Erik VidorThe BBQ is ok but you have to try the Chicken fried steak and chicken, they are the bomb.com

  • David WillettGo to the Barbeque Inn, and take a step back 30+ years in history. Do NOT order barbeque. Order anything fried, and you will not be disappointed.
