Pappas Bar-B-Q has been in Houston for more than 30 years. The original restaurant of the Pappas chain, Pete and Jim Pappas opened it as The Brisket House in 1976 before changing the name 20 years later. Pappas features slow-smoked pit barbecue, burgers and traditional barbecue sides like potato salad. The focus is on heaping portions for moderate prices as well as a family-style atmosphere and Texas-themed décor. They also boast a breakfast menu featuring breakfast tacos alongside more standard breakfast fare such as sausage and eggs.
