Texas Original Rib Tickler

Customer Review 2011

"I remember when I was younger and we used to visit this place all the time, due to the good, consistent BBQ that amazingly, seems so hard to find in Houston.

A few years ago we visited a few times and were very disappointed with the food and service, and so until last night we hadn't been back for quite a while. Maybe it was just nostalgia bringing us back, but at the first bite I knew something had changed, because my food was great!!

Apparently the original owners left some years ago, but had heard things weren't working out so came back to run the business again early 2011. We also got personalized service from Kyle, one of the owners. We will definitely be coming back! The ribs are the best in town!
