At Gatlin's, low and slow are the keywords in this family's burgeoning barbecue empire. There's barely any seating inside, and only a small attached patio, but that doesn't stop the lines from forming outside the front door every single day, demanding Greg Gatlin's brisket and ribs. Unusual for a barbecue joint, the sides are just as craveable as the meat: Try the dirty rice and you'll leave an avowed liver lover, and get some creamy coleslaw for a little crunch alongside your meat. And when they say, "Love is the secret ingredient" here, they mean it: You'll always get service with a smile and a gentle reminder not to leave without dessert.

I was severely underwhelmed when I went here the other day. We waited an hour for the food, which, while better than most of Houston's "bbq" options, was decent at best. I guess I've just been spoiled by real pit bbq out in the Hill Country.

Way to go HP. You awarded Best BBQ Restaurant to a "BBQ joint" that doesn't even have a BBQ pit. They use a smoke injected gas oven. Blasphemy...
