With the Houston food scene having such a grand reputation, it's pretty vital that all Houstonians know all the best local joints to really impress all our BBQ-deprived out-of-towners. And we're in luck because we're basically getting a BBQ open-house this year with the Houston Barbecue Festival bringing all the best joints back together this Spring!
On April 5, all the best barbecue joints in town are gathering together for one massive meat-filled fest at the Humble Civic Center Arena Complex.
From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., all of your fav vendors will be there including Killen's, Tejas Chocolate & BBQ, Roegels Barbecue Co., and Harlem Road Texas BBQ.
If you've never tried any of those, now is your chance to officially cement your Houstonian residency. I'd suggest nabbing your ticket now, this is an urgent matter.
You can get General Admission tickets for $50 during the pre-sale discount, or it's $60 for procrastinators.
GA tickets give you access to unlimited servings of samples from vendors so you can decide which is your favorite before making the financial commitment to a full plate of the best one.
Serving sizes will be two ounces per joint—that's about a slice or half-slice of brisket and one rib.
Or, if you really want to get to know your Houston BBQ, you can get VIP tickets for $100 at the discounted early bird rate.
VIP tickets will get you access into the event one hour before everyone else, unlimited samples, a T-shirt, and a free drink ticket.
This will be the 8th annual event, featuring live music, a bar with craft beers, and the promise to not let you down—rain or shine!
