Best Barbeque in The Woodlands

Our quest to find the best BBQ in The Woodlands led us to these top Woodlands area restaurants. The list is put together by rankings made by local citizens on Yelp and consolidated for your enjoyment!

BBQ Godfather – 4.61/5 Stars (28 Reviews) $$
BBQ Godfather WebsiteDirections | Link to Yelp Profile

With an organic fusion of Italian, Spanish and Southwestern American styles we have created a new type of BBQ. This unique style if one of a kind and you have to taste it to understand it. We get only the highest quality meats and vegetables for our sides. We love what we do and do what we love.

“Sliced beef brisket is tender, moist, smoky, and full of flavor! The turkey sandwich had a sweet cranberry sauce drizzled on moist sliced turkey in between fresh French bread. Definitely worth a visit!” Natalie M. – Yelp Review


Corkscrew BBQ
– 4.61/5 Stars (199 Reviews) $$
Corkscrew BBQ WebsiteDirections | Link to Yelp Profile

Unfortunately, Corkscrew BBQ is currently closed while they move to their new location in Old Town Spring (26608 Keith Street, Spring TX, 77373). During their time off Sawdust/Budde road they racked up quite a dedicated following, and is still competing for some of the best BBQ in The Woodlands. If you’re curious what all the buzz is about, go check them out at their new location slated to open in October 2015! (The links above are updated with their new location information)

Starting out as catering only, no order was too small, delivering just a brisket to a family party was the norm.  A year after starting, CorkScrew was catering for Talisman Energy, Woodlands MUD District, CB&I, and a lot of other great companies and lots of great families.  They were asked at every delivery “When is CorkScrew opening a restaurant????”  So finally after much thought and prayer they took the leap and here they are 3 years later blessed beyond their wildest dreams.

“No matter the wait, no matter the heat of summer or the cold of winter, I will stand in line patiently until I get my order in. Corkscrew is worth every second of my time and every cent I spend. Please just don’t sell out while I am waiting!!!” Jacob H. – Yelp Review


Spring Creek Barbeque
– 3.77/5 Stars (35 Reviews) $$
Spring Creek BBQ WebsiteDirections | Link to Yelp Profile

What has made Spring Creek a favorite dining destination for over 30 years? First and foremost are our delicious barbecue specialties – ribs, beef, chicken, sausage, ham and turkey. All are hickory-smoked to perfection, and our ribs are then chargrilled for extra flavor. We feature wonderful sauce made from our own secret recipe, fries and okra cooked to order, fresh salads with homemade dressings, giant loaded baked potatoes, and the best home-baked bread you’ll ever taste.

“Yummy! This is our go-to place for delicious BBQ.  Very family friendly casual cafeteria-style restaurant that offers super hospitable service!” – Bunny G. – Yelp Review


Pit Master BBQ
– 3.54/5 Stars (79 Reviews) $$
Pit Master BBQ WebsiteDirections | Link to Yelp Profile

Welcome to Pit-Master Bar-B-Que. Serving World-Class BBQ since 1998, we strive to consistently deliver the highest quality smoked meats, homemade side dishes and deserts. Join us at one of our two locations, in The Woodlands at 343 Sawdust Road or our Pig Stand in Spring at 842 Rayford Road.

“Very good customer service! Made us feel right at home. Food was had great flavor. Good taste, great price, awesome service will come back for sure!” Angela P. – Yelp Review


D’s Farm Road BBQ
– 4.5/5 Stars (2 Reviews)
No Website| Directions | Link to Yelp Profile

D’s Farm Road BBQ is our equivalent of a “sleeper pick” for you fantasy football folks out there. It’s seen some tasty reviews so far, but it’s not quite vetted out to rank it near the top. We think this will be a great place to put on your “gotta try it” list, then come back and review them and let us know how it was!

“Sliced sandwich was fantastic. Tender beef, slightly sweet sauce . Ever wish you could go back to Corkscrew BBQ before the lines got insane?  This place may be as close as you can get in The Woodlands area” Norman G. – Yelp Review
