Their BBQ is the best in Pearland even better than Killen. Killen is expensive & the staff not very friendly.

I have been coming here for six years and it's by far the best barbecue I've ever eaten. The prices are good and every side that I've ordered has been delicious. I would recommend the lunch special. Because this place is so popular, you may have to wait in line but it's worth the wait.

While waiting in the cafeteria style line, looking at all the neat things on the walls, on shelves, and in nooks and crannies in the dining area give a person an idea of what life used to be like. The food is great, with fantastic barbeque, as well as tasty vegetables and fresh desserts. Dining in is an experience unlike... More

A true BBQ legend in old town Pearland. Dining in is cafeteria style selection. Beyond the tender and tasty BBQ the selection of sides and deserts is plentiful. The staff is always friendly and the restaurant is charming. When ordering take out the helpings are always perfect and just as tasty as dine-in. "Love some Central T" !

We went for the first time this Saturday for lunch, and it was so packed that the line was doubled back and out the door. We did not mind waiting, as there were plenty of open seats available. The food was awesome, and well worth the wait! The staff was very cheerful, never frustrated even though they were understaffed. Most... More

The BBQ here is legit, but make sure to try the sides too. The broccoli casserole shouldn't be missed. You won't have room for dessert, so take some pecan pie with you for the road.

My Wife and I had dinner Sunday evening at our favorite Barbecue restaurant in the area: South Texas Style Barbecue in Pearland. As always we found the Sliced Beef Brisket and Pork Ribs to be excellent, tasty and juicy; and the sides abundant and tasty, The New Potatoes are my favorite and are almost worth a meal by themselves! Unfortunately,... More

The food is not really too bad but the space to order the food is very crowded. The seating is quaint with lots of different type of tables, etc. The restaurant is older but really only bad thing is the area/space you have to wait to place your order.
