With roughly 1,000 votes at last count yesterday afternoon, it looks like our panel of barbecue judges will be hitting a slew of 'cue chains when we head out to judge Houston's worst barbecue next week.

In "first" place so far with a solid 20 percent of the vote is Pappas Bar-B-Q, proving that just because Houstonians love the Pappas family's excellent steakhouse doesn't mean that they approve of its barbecue.

But we have five total barbecue joints to try. And so far, it looks like those other four will be:

  • Dickey's Barbecue Pit (multiple locations): 12 percent
  • Pit Master Barbecue Cafe (343 Sawdust, The Woodlands): 10 percent
  • Demeris Barbecue (multiple locations): 10 percent
  • Luling City Market Bar-B-Q Restaurant & Bar (4726 Richmond): 8 percent

Polling will remain open until 5 p.m. Sunday (March 18), so if you disagree with any of these restaurants as having some of Houston's worst barbecue, cast your vote now.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
