    I work (well used to work) in Greenway Plaza and ate at Feges quite a bit. Good but not in the class of the others you mentioned. Otherwise, good choices.

    I pretty much agree with old fracmeister , Tejas, Corkscrew, Pinkerton's and Killen's are the top four hands down. The problem is all four are a long way from Cypress, not that there's anything wrong with travelin' for some good cue. There is a small chain here in Katy that does really good brisket, has free warm rolls and ice cream, gives you tons of food, in a country backdrop called Spring Creek BBQ. I believe they may have one up US290 but Katy is close to Cypress. Again, not as good as the big four but with Htown back in a near lock down condition, you might want to tell them to stick closer to home.

    Of course everyone is entitled to their opinion, but to me there is no comparison. As much as I love Greg Gatlin and used to eat at his place in Oak Forest regularly, Pinkerton's is in a whole other class of bbq. It's like comparing Franklin's to Rudy's, both good but one is much gooder than the other

    While, we're talking about Houston BBQ joints - assuming we ever get passed this pandemic - if anyone wants to hit Pinkerton's (right by my house) and then go to Gatlin's for a comparison, let me know.

    Thanks. I’ll pass all of this along to my daughter and son-in-law.

    Carl's is good! We've catered from there for Houston Geologic Society events!

    There are lots of Lafayette transplants here too. Plenty of good cajun food. Hebert's specialty meats is run by some guys from Lafayette, as is BB's.

    In 2008, we moved from Cypress, TX to Colorado. In Cypress, Carl's BBQ was always pretty good:

    I like Gatlins. Chef Michelle is awesome.
    Rudy's is a solid choice.

    A lot of people swear by Pinkertons but i think it's over priced and over hyped.

    +1 for Killen's. Their steaks are killer also.

    Well I can tell you that besides my back yard my favorite joints are Tejas BBQ & Chocolates (don't laugh, the chocolates are great) in Tomball and Corkscrew in Old Town Spring. Both have consistently awesome brisket.

    Shocking for the location is Feges in Greenway plaza. Pinkerton's is another favorite (closed monday AND tuesday) in the heights. try both kinds of ribs. Killen's way out in Pearland does some great bbq and TexMex...

    Gonna get to know Houston

    My stepdaughter and son-in-law are moving from Lafayette, La to the Houston area, Cypress area was mentioned. Now I know there is one prominent member in nearby Katy. Troutman or something like that. I’m at work so I don’t have time to scan the posts but I want some of that famous Texas brisket. Who got da BRISKY? It may be a while before I make it out there but I want some Texas Brisket!
