1. Breakfast at Harris County Smokehouse (Tomball)
BBQ: it's what's for breakfast.
Harris County Smokehouse - Tomball, 14243 Farm to Market 2920, Tomball, TX 77377, USA
Harris County Smokehouse
prides itself on its all-day, seven-days-a-week breakfast menu, which features such favorites as pulled pork, smoked sausage, and brisket, all served with eggs done your way. What would you order?
2. Snack at Tejas Chocolate + Barbecue (Tomball)
You'll find BBQ and chocolate under one roof at
Tejas Chocolate + Barbecue - need we say more?
Tejas Chocolate+Barbecue, 200 N Elm St, Tomball, TX 77375, USA
Balance out the meat-heavy breakfast with a little sweetness in the form of a handcrafted chocolate truffle. There are so many neat flavors to choose from!
3. Lunch at CorkScrew BBQ (Spring)
Despite its unassuming exterior,
CorkScrew BBQ always has a line out the door - and for good reason.
CorkScrew BBQ, 26608 Keith St, Spring, TX 77373, USA
The wood-smoked BBQ (especially the brisket) is second-to-none, and your mind will be blown after just one bite.
4. Dinner at Feges BBQ (Greenway Plaza)
Tucked away in Greenway Plaza,
Feges BBQ is proudly owned by husband and wife duo, Erin Smith and Patrick Feges.
Feges BBQ (Greenway Plaza), 3 Greenway Plaza Suite C-210, Houston, TX 77046, USA
The barbecue is out of this world, but the sides - like Korean braised greens and pimiento mac and cheese - really take this underrated outpost over the top.
With a full belly, it's time to get some shuteye at
Sara's Inn on the Boulevard.
Sara's Inn, 941 Heights Blvd, Houston, TX 77008, USA
This quaint bed and breakfast in the heart of the Heights offers the perfect blend of elegance and cozy, historic charm.
5. Breakfast at Texas Tacos & BBQ (Houston)
You can't have a Texas BBQ road trip without breakfast tacos, and that's exactly how we're kicking off day two.
Texas Tacos and BBQ, 1000 Telephone Rd, Houston, TX 77023, USA
Texas Tacos & BBQ
looks unassuming on the outside, but it sure knows how to load up a tortilla. Options like chorizo and egg, potato and egg, and egg and bean promise to start the day off on a delicious note.
6. Lunch at Blood Bros. BBQ (Bellaire)
What is it about strip-center BBQ joints dishing out some of the best food?
Blood Bros. BBQ, 5425 Bellaire Blvd, Bellaire, TX 77401, USA
Nestled in Bellaire Triangle,
is no exception. It's definitely the most unique spot on the list, blending Asian and Creole flavors with classic BBQ cuts and techniques. The menu is ever-changing, so keep up with the restaurant's social media for the most accurate info.
7. Dinner at Brett's BBQ Shop (Katy)
Last - but certainly not least - we're headed out west to try
Brett's BBQ Shop in Katy.
Brett's Barbecue Shop, 606 Mason Rd, Katy, TX 77450, USA
Retro country décor turns up the charm, and oak-smoked, Central Texas-style 'cue turns up the heat. The menu boasts all the classics you know and love - but somehow, they just taste better here.
