Best Family Friendly Restaurant: Feges BBQ Spring Branch

Over in the residential neighborhood of Spring Branch, husband and wife team (and new parents) Patrick Feges and Erin Smith have opened up a second location of their cult favorite barbecue joint. Now that there’s more space to play with (the original sits in a Greenway Plaza food court), the duo has incorporated two J&R Manufacturing Oylers, a new pitmaster (Vince Boisaubin), and both lunch and dinner service into the mix.

And as they recognized the need for more family-friendly dining establishments in the area, they’ve added a kids play area and kids menu, too. Take the family to bond over next-level barbecue, including specialties like of whole hog, smoked chicken wings, Smith’s famous Moroccan spiced carrots, and burgers and fries; and sip through some craft beers and complex wines while the kids finish off dessert.
