Though the Scott Street location has shuttered, Brooks Family BBQ is thankfully alive and kicking with a weekday, lunch-only service offered in Jones Plaza. The Brooks family’s roots go back to the 1970s, when father Harlon moved here from Nacogdoches and opened Harlon's BBQ. Generations of welcoming, friendly service and incredible barbecue have gained them a much-deserved loyal following. Head downtown for the same smoky brisket, sweet and spicy glazed salmon, and fall-off-the-bone ribs that made you fall in love with the family-run barbecue joint in the first place.
