They do amazing things with ribs here they are the best bbq place I have ever stepped in though I have only been in Texas for a month. Never the less I am very impressed. Stop in ...


BBQ was OK. The fries were terrible. They were ultra thin and overcooked.

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/28/2014

Well, I would not go as far as saying, THE BEST BBQ IN TOWN! it's ok.but pork n beans, I rather they open a #10 can of ranch style beans, since pinto beans would be a challenge? Like I said I will still be a customer, like the location on 18th street, real nice and clean! The staff awesome, oh your daily specials are not to special on price, those are kinda high too.Thanks anyway. more

Jalapeno Corn Enough Said!! 5/15/2009

If you are in the mood for delicious barbecue ~ look no further!

Great Catering for Wedding Reception 2/12/2007

Demeris Barbecue provided excellent catering service and food for for our wedding reception. Demeris is already known for great barbecue. Many may not know (and we didn't at first either) that they offer a vast variety of choices on their catering menu. Some choices include SouthWestern/TexMex, Southern Style food like Chicken Fried Steak and Chicken Fried Chicken, Italian food like SevenLayer Lasagna, Turkey and Dressing, Hors d' Oeuvres, and Breakfast Buffet. Our guests were very pleased with our menu selection - Chicken Fried Chicken, Seasoned Green Beans, Roasted New Potatoes, Salad, and Rolls. The serving staff were hard working and conscientious. We enjoyed working with Billy who arranged the catering and helped us with our selections. We highly recommend Demeris for catering. more

REAL BBQ - Done Real Good 6/28/2006

While driving down Shepherd near West Alabama, I came across a sign for Demeris BBQ. Being new in Houston from Memphis TN, I had only heard about Demeris BBQ from my co-workers who eat there all the time. I had my family in the car so we decided to try Demeris. The restaurant was nice; clean new tables and chairs, large booths, and country decor. I had the 2 meat combo- Chicken and Beef and a couple of sides. The meat was good, tender, juicy, and smoked just right. I like that they dont drown the meat in sauce. We were surprised at the large menu. My wife wasnt in the mood for a heavy meal, so she had the Greek Salad. She loved it! The kids split a basket of fresh chicken tenders and fries. I know Bar-B-Q this is great BBQ! We will be back, thanks Demeris Family! more

Fantastic BBQ! 6/26/2006

Their food is awesome and the staff is always very friendly. The lunch crowd is great and the quick service can get you in and out. I have also had Demeris cater a few events I have done and was very pleased with it as well. Hands down, Demeris BBQ is one of my favorite places in Houston. Pros: Friendly staff, quick service. more

Port in Pseudo-Storm 10/7/2005

Post-Rita, this was the only restaurant open on Saturday for upper Kirby types so it gets my vote; service was ultra friendly with someone serving ice-cold water to the stressed-out crowd. Food was good. Appreciated their being there. Thank you! more

Great BBQ 7/23/2003

No question about it, Demeris has good BBQ. They offer the usual variety of meats (brisket, links, ribs, chicken, turkey). The links are mediocre, but everything else is very tasty. Their sauce has a good flavor, although my girlfriend noticed it's a little thin. Their stuffed potatoes are enormous, packed with the meat of your choice, and come with a side of sauce. There isn't much to the service portion, you go up to the counter and order, it usually only takes 3-4 minutes to get your plate. There is a woman who works the cash register that acts as though she would rather jab knitting needles in her ears that place your order. Pros: Good food, good prices more

Eeeeeek 5/22/2003

You must be joking that this place gets an 8. Dried out meat. Surly service. Cons: Food, Service more

??This is GOOD??!!?? 9/16/2002

I went to the Demeris on Shepherd and had the sliced beef. It tasted like roast beef that had been baked in an oven until very well done, then Kraft's BBQ sauce poured over it. Houston... if you think this is good, you need to get out more often! more

Oh my GOD, this place is good #1 9/13/2002

Demeris is by far the best!!!! Have you tried their onion rings, get ready, they will make you cry they are so good. Nicest people in town also Pros: Great Food, Great People, Easy to get to Cons: crowded sometimes more

The Best in TEXAS 9/4/2002

The people I work with have been meeting here (Hempstead Hwy Location) since the early 80's. We have never been disappointed with the Huge Baked potatoes, Po Boy Baskets, or the great plate lunches and salads. The portions are generous, quality of meat is excellent, the taste is superb, and best of all the cost is nominal. Pros: Great Tea, Great Baked Potato, Great Service Cons: None on 1960, None on I-45 North more
