The Houston barbecue scene has been getting some rave reviews lately, and one of the benefactors of the good publicity has been Roegels Barbecue Co. Owned by Russell and Misty Roegels, this spot churns out brisket, sausage, turkey, ribs, chicken and pulled pork. You can either purchase by weight, or try a combo plate to grab a little of everything.
On my most recent visit, my family and I opted for a good mix of meat by weight. Went with a mix of lean and fatty brisket, some sausage and a couple of pork ribs. We also had to try some sides, so we grabbed some mashed potatoes, mac and cheese and some beans.
We got there right after lunch, so there wasn’t a line at the door, but note that with some recent publicity you can expect a bit of a wait. The cutter we had taking our order was swift and patient as we decided what we wanted at the counter. Additional items including onions, pickles and jalapenos are available, self-serve, next to the drink station.
The recent press is definitely earned here. Brisket was definitely a standout and the sides didn’t disappoint. They do catering, so consider them for future events you may have.
