“Breakfast is better than the BBQ”
Review of Harris County Smokehouse - CLOSED

Harris County Smokehouse
Price range: US$1 - US$20
Cuisines: Barbecue
Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 April 2013

The breakfast here is excellent. pancakes are great, biscuits are always fresh and hot, and overall it's just a great deal. The BBQ is good but not very consistent. One thing is that they always give you a good portion so you don't have to worry about being hungry afterwards. I have only had the non-pork meats and they are sometimes good and other times a little dry. I would recommend without reservation for breakfast and with a slight hesitation for lunch or dinner.

Clean, friendly restaurant...very high marks for flavor, tenderness, smokiness, selection...I cannot do justice to this establishment in words...experience it for yourself...I was not disappointed at all...it will be the first place I eat when I return to Houston.

I liked the spicy sausage. The ribs were tough and fatty. I prefer the ribs to be cooked a little bit longer. Two meat dinner with a bottle of water and a soda $18.00.

For years, this has been our barbecue restaurant of choice! The food is outstanding, the atmosphere is perfect and the prices are reasonable. When we have family in from out-of-town, this is the first restaurant we take them to (on many occasions, it's a repeat visit with out-of-town family members). The breakfast is also very, VERY good! A great way to start the day! The take out, what can I say about the take out other than it has fed my family for years. On those long days when it's too late to cook and the family is starving, we would stop by, grab a few ribs, pieces of chicken, vegetables and the twice backed potatoes, and we were good to go! This place has never, I repeat, never let us down! We have never been to the Tomball location, but plan to visit it in the near future. Hmmmm......we have no plans for dinner tonight! We do now....Harris County Smokehouse!

I have been going to this 7+ years But recently it must be under different management. For One thing this website has their hours posted wrong because they have recently change them . They now close at 9pm. They should post that they close at 830pm because we got there at 830 on a SATURDAY night and the music got turned off the tvs were off, there were only 4 vegetable sides available they put up the tea dispencers and rolls ..all the lights but a few were turned off. It was very apparent that we were in the way. They also turned customers away So I checked the time and It wasn t even 9pm . I went down the road and passed by at 910pm and the place looked abandoned with no lights on,no cars nothing. I have never felt so pushed out of a returaunt before ever especially on a SATURDAY night! The traffic and parking lots at all the surrounding resturaunts were packed. Does this manager not want to grow his business???IN this economy???: what are they thinking??? Traffic was bumper to bumper on 1960 and 290. I will drive a short distance to the other 5 barbq resturaunts when I get hungry for barbque. I will not eat here again unless I see or hear of changes and I use to eat here at least once a week. I am writing this review for that reason...because this use to be one of my favorite places to eat. Now the service is terrible and Now I wont be back
