Best Biker Bar Houston 2010 - Bimbo's Beer and Bar-B-Q

Map & Details>>

Bimbo's is a ramshackle old cabin-like structure set among a grove of Christmas light-draped oak trees in the middle of nowhere on the far northwest side of town. There's seating on the front porch, but you don't have to sit out there to legally light up as Bimbo's is beyond the city limits and not subject to Houston's antismoking statute. Once inside, you'll likely find a bulwark of leather-clad bikers pounding Buds and Millers and occasional sidecars from the full bar like there's no tomorrow. They will probably also be singing to each other, to jukebox tunes like Dr. Hook's "Cover of the Rolling Stone." Meanwhile, the barmaid and another employee will be trying to reassemble the pieces of the night before: which of them, if in fact it was either one of them, took whom home, and what happened after that? And there is some priceless graffiti here, such as the one my wife found scrawled on the wall in the ladies' room: "Don't eat hot wings then pussy!" That's the kind of hard-won advice bikers go out and live for us so we don't have to.

BIMBO'S is a hoot! It has a bodacious atmosphere and Donna the manager keeps all things in order. The crowd is mixed with all ages having fun at karaoke and just good all around Texas sized fun!

You will not find another place like this where you can just walk in and start enjoying yourself amongst good ole' regular people!

There are a lot of bitter assholes posting their pissy comments on here so let's get to the truth. Bimbo's doesn't serve food, much less BBQ. Bimbo's really isn't a "biker bar" but on any given night or weekend there will some Harleys parked in the spot out front reserved for bikes. The bartenders work their asses off and Donna the manager makes sure the customers aren't over charged and the money goes in the register. She'll also make damn sure no one gets over served and if they have had too much to drink, she or the other bartenders will call them a cab. I've seen it many times. The one problem I have witnessed is when people come in that have been drinking at other bars and are already 3/4 wasted by the time they get to Bimbo's. They have 1 or 2 more drinks and they need a cab. That's the way it is at any bar, and with all the other new bars in that area, it's going to happen and the staff at Bimbo's is on top of it. All of the shitty comments on here are simply lies posted by anonymous cowards with nothing better to do than crap on other people. Don't believe the bullshit you read hear folks. It's easy to tell who has an ax to grind and you can tell they are pathetic, small, bitter people. Now with that cleared up, let's talk about what Bimbo's really is. It's a local hangout that serves mixed drinks, beer and wine. They have Karaoke 2 nights a week and the occasional live band. It's 20 years old and it looks like it. It has character, personality and attitude - a great attitude. It is welcoming and fun. Is Bimbo's the "Best Biker Bar"? I doubt it. It it a dive? For sure. Is it fun and a great place to hang out and drink? You bet. Is it perfect? Far from it. Is it the perfect dive? Most likely.

Sounds like BigBoy, the manager Donna must have been drunk one night and given you a blow job so you would write something kind about this bar. They overserve and you can see Patron's falling asleep at the bar because they are drunk. These people are cheap but they work hard for their money and what gives any bartender the right to steal from hard working people. If the service and attitude was good maybe they would get a good tip and the manager is in their quite frequently with her daughter bombed off their asses stirring up trouble.

bimbos kicks ass!!!!! these people complaining are cheap... the bartenders have allways been excellent to me... besides there income solely depends on tips, who would want to work for a cheap asshole for five hours for a dollar tip? and the overserving thing is bullshit...i have personally seen the bimbos staff go above and beyond to get there customers home safely... besides, adults should know there own limits, so who is really the asshole here? bimbos is cool, i would take my mother there...congrats...ya'll deserve it.

What made Bimbos great was the people that used to go there... Many of the old regulars don't anymore, especially now that Bob is gone. Just ask any regular: 1. Never run a tab, or you better expect a couple extra charges. 2. Pay attention to the cash you give them and always count your change. 3. Even though you tip regularly, if they think you're not paying attention, extra gratuity will be calculated in. 4. On good days Donna will merely act annoyed if you disturb her to ask for a beer, other days you'd better act drunk and hold up lots of money as though you can't count or she'll keep you waiting a while. Most of us gave uo on hoping for new management a long time ago...

Not a bimbo...

Geez people... What are you talking about? Bimbo's is the absolute worst place to be. The manager, Donna, is this old hag who will, when drunk, start making up stories about people raping her and stealing her money. She steals from people who go in there for a good time. She has even run after people in the parking lot asking why they wouldn't tip her. She is evil and convaluted... She is a liar! She over-serves people, letting them leave to kill. Beware of this bar!!!

If you ask the manager there, she will reply this is not a biker bar! Sure great place to go if you like to be ripped off by the bartenders (don't run a tab and count your change, you always may want to see if the drink money goes into the till or their tip jar). Great place for them to sell you cocaine or any other kind of drugs! Oh Yeah and let's not forget - the overserving of alchol and the fact that people get killed or they kill people after leaving that bar. Yep that is where I would like to hang out! NOT! How much were you paid to write this article?

DIDN'T PAY MUCH ATTENTION TO WHAT THIS PLACE IS DID YOU. IT ISN'T A CABIN LIKE STRUCTURE BUT MOBILE HOMES PUT TOGETHER. THE ONLY THING HOLDING THIS PLACE TOGETHER IS THE FILTH THAT COVERS EVERY SURFACE. BIKER BAR HA! MAYBE BEFORE THE COLLEGE KIDS STARTED GRACING THE PLACE. AS FOR THE BAR-B-QUE WHAT BAR-B-QUE? ALSO DID U HAPPEN TO SEE THE TOMBSTONES UNDER THAT PORCH? DO A LITTLE MORE RESEARCH BEFORE YOU WRITE AN ARTICLE ABOUT THE BEST BIKER BAR.
