  • 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.
