Great barbeque plus the best side dishes of all the barbeque places in Pearland. Deco in the restaurant is unique and quirky. Another great family run business. Lines can get long at rush hour but the food is worth the wait.

While the restaurant looks a bit shabby on the outside and inside, the BBQ and sides are wonderful. We regularly get large orders of sides for parties and holidays. My kids love the baked potato loaded. Brisket and ribs are great too.

Its good BBQ and priced like all the other BBQ places. Good for business lunches. Fair amount on plates, just nothing to write home about. Service fairly fast. You wait in line to order and pay before seating.

Central Texas is a landmark. The food is amazing, from the brisket down to the stuffed jalapenos. The service is great with very pleasant staff. It is my go-to restaurant when I have family come in town, it's the best place to take them!

Yes, as others have already suggested, I believe up to 4 are allowed per order but there is a small premium on the mixed orders like that and your portions get pretty small for each.
