Barbeque, BBQ, Bar-B-Q [Houston, Texas]

Chopped beef IS my order! Demeris though is confusing. Really?

Mattress Mac’s sandwiches were free also, right? Last I heard all shoppers eat free.

If you have a few days to kill, file a flight plan and voyage out to his new location on 99 in Fort Bend County/Katy. It’s huge! It’s got a Lopez also, the second location of that institution. He’s always present at his store, emptying garbage was his task when I was last here. I went looking for a chair once at the Post Oak location, but the prices their were matchy with the area, super expensive.

He was recently on a TV show promoting Lopez, one of his favorite places to eat.

I wouldn’t describe Bellaire as a suburb. I think technically it’s and enclave, but even that sounds odd.

Have you eaten at Blood Brothers?

I’m 2000 miles away.
I would if I could.

Bellaire is an independent city surrounded by Houston on three sides and the tiny City of Southside Place on the fourth.

Back in the 70’s I and a lot of other people from Houston would cut through Bellaire side streets to avoid traffic. This did not sit well with the folks there and there was talk of banning Houston cars from city streets. My take was fair enough we’ll simply ban them from Houston and they’ll be surrounded forever.

I haven’t been but maybe our local HO throng can meat there.

Wait. I think I know you! Aren’t you Jethro Bodine’s cousin? I’m sure you were the highest in your class.

Let’s keep this on topic. Maybe we can get Granny to BBQ up a mess of possum.

I can’t even remember the last time I drove to or through Bellaire. I have a friend who’s a traffic judge there and they take all that seriously. She’s a hanging judge! :smiley:


Cooper’s - the Llano folks - have just (like today) opened a brand spanking new BBQ barn out in Katy. I haven’t been yet. Waiting for the crowds to die down.

I’ve always wanted to go there and we tried to go to the Llano location a few years ago but were driven back by freezing rain. We returned to Houston with our tails between our legs, ice and hills down mix, there were lots of accidents and at least one fatality.

There is also a new Cooper’s in College Station. It has drawn crowds as well. Reviews are mixed. Saltiness seems to be a common comment.
