On a friend's recommendation I stopped by this restaurant.

Biggest surprise ever. Words do not lend them selves to explaining the wonderful service and GREAT food.

We returned for the first time in a few years last night ... ate the same thing as we did in 2014 -- all white meat fried chicken with crispy fries and salad .... huge portions and plenty to share ...

Beth was our server and she was sweet -- very accommodating.

We were too full to get dessert, but they look delicious too!

Highly recommend this restaurant!

This place is awesome. Been going here my entire life. Anyone who grew up on the north side knows BBQ Inn is the best. Homemade meringue pies, seafood, and BBQ. You wouldn't think a BBQ place would have such good seafood. The stuffed crab is my favorite.

I don't think there is better fried gulf shrimp (the real deal) and stuffed crab anywhere than at the barbecue Inn. An awesome throwback experience with wonderful service, great food and the same funky decor since it opened in the late forties. Also try the chicken fried steak, the BBQ and the very best fried chicken in Houston!

If you sometimes long for the fried chicken your grandmother or mother prepared, this is the place. I'd never visited the Barbecue Inn in all the years I've been in Houston. We visited the restaurant Saturday, and I guarantee you that I will return soon. It is simply wonderful. All the accolades are exactly right.
