  • Seriously the best chicken fried steak I've had. Flawless batter, tender meat. Unfortunately, the cream gravy has zero flavor (no pepper), which killed the meal. Check out Hickory Hollow for good CFS.
  • It's old school service with old school waitstaff. While its name deals in smoked meats, the real treasure here is the fried chicken. [Eater 38 Member]
  • People don't eat BBQ here....It's all about fried. Chicken fried chicken takes 20 minutes....but totally worth it. Also chicken fried steak, fried shrimp and fried oysters rock!
  • The Barbecue Inn opened in 1946. Its still operated by the same family. Other than the prices, little has changed by the look of the original menu on the wall.
  • Baked potato comes with the lazy susan of condiments!
  • Ask for Lilly...she has been there 33 years....she is a hoot....also ask her the difference between male and female shrimp!!!
  • It may be called the Barbecue Inn, but all the locals at this old-time Houston diner know that the fried-to-orderchicken--which comes out piping hot and somehow almost greaseless-is the thing to get.
  • Everything!!!

  • There chicken fried chicken are soooo good .. Gotta try it..
  • Grew up going here. The hamburgers are some of the best!!! And the fried chicken is SOOOO good (but it takes a while, so don't fill up on crackers and butter!)!!
  • Their fried chicken is the best and the wait staff is great! Levity.
