Foursquare Tips

  • Closed Monday
  • The meat was good. However, the beans came from a can. The potato salad from a container. :(
  • Smoky, fatty brisket. Well-seasoned ribs that aren't allowed to turn into mush. A location that's high on charm. Skip the too-sweet, East Texas style sides. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Great hidden BBQ gem in Houston. Try the ribs, and get a full rack. Better than Gatlin's.
  • Get the ribs. That's all there is to say. Tender but still with a toothsome bite and just the right amount of smoke. Not overpowering.
  • Don't miss: Sliced brisket sandwich; pork ribs; beef links; sliced brisket-and-link sandwich.
  • Man! Moist, tender brisket and tasty ribs. I drove almost 40 miles to get to Virgie's and I was still moaning with pleasure when I got home.
  • A jewel in the BBQ wasteland that is Houston. The brisket is good and the ribs are excellent! Worth the lofty praise.
  • Get the ribs. Definitely get the ribs.
  • Brisket and ribs are where its at! Save some room for the lemon cake, slightly sweet with great lemon flavor! Homemade too!
  • Try the 2 Meat Dinner - Brisket & Pork Ribs - Amazing smoke flavor!
