I've been to several of the best BBQ joints in Lockhart Texas and Killian's in Pearland. Bobs is the real deal and the brisket and pulled pork are great. This is definitely a takeaway place. There are two side sauces (that you won't need) and the smoke ring and bark are perfection. Highly recommend it.

Bob's Texas BBQ has THE BEST BBQ!! My husband usually stops by once a week for our BBQ "fix" and I wouldn't want him to go anywhere else!!
