This is a fun place with good food. Wait in line to order and hope the food doesn't run out before you get to the counter. This is a popular BBQ place because the food is so good. Brisket, sausage, you name it and it is very tasty, but only open til 6 p.m. So don't count on dinner -... More

First, Corkscrew BBQ is now located in Old Town Spring, about a 10-minute drive from its former location. Still worth waiting for, their food is fresh and deliciously prepared. I'm not a brisket lover in general, but I can't get enough of their meats and salads. Everything is made on site, fresh daily. The restaurant is open until they sell... More

This is the best BBQ. I pass 3 really good BBQ places just to get to Corkscrew. They have relocated to Old Town Spring from The Woodlands. Still have to wait in line but so worth the extra few miles and the line. And when they run out, they close for the day.

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

They are closed now, and moving to a new location in Old Town Spring. Grand Opening will be October 3rd, 2015, 26608 Keith Street, in Old Town Spring.
