In the good old days, Roy Burns Sr. used to set up a smoker and sell barbecue on the side of the road. But he settled down under some pine trees in Acres Homes a dozen or so years ago, and developed a loyal following until he passed away. Kathy Braden, owner and daughter of Roy Burns Sr., opened the new location on Shepherd in 2010. Her father's restaurant in the Acres Homes location had received favorable reviews: "The brisket falls apart on the way to your mouth, so it's best to get it on a sandwich. The wet and smoky ribs are among the best you'll find in Houston. Mashed potato salad and beans are the most popular sides." Only time will tell if Kathy has kept the family recipes.
