The Brisket House

5775 Woodway Drive Houston, TX 77057 | Galleria | 281-888-0331

Location Description:

The Brisket House refutes the notion that a good barbecue place can't also have good sides; the smoked chicken, ribs and brisket here are every bit as wonderful as its baked potato salad and coleslaw at this Galleria-area restaurant. Try them all on a three-meat plate for an inexpensive but very filling lunch, or belly up to The Brisket House Special: a pound of meat on a piece of butcher paper with a whole pickle, chunk of cheese and an onion.
