The only thing worth getting at Ottos is the country ham sandwich (or po-boy). The beef and other meats are not very good. It is average food and not nearly as good as George Bush...

A GREAT Hamburger!! 9/9/2008

I have been going to Otto's since I was a Kid, and although the BBQ has always been good, I always go for one of their great hamburgers!\r The doulbe meat and cheese is hard to beat, and even better with a side of fries...\r The dining room and bar area is always full of some great characters discussing current events...\r I had lunch there today and was informed that the closing is real, and probably only 4-6 weeks away, so you better get there and have a last taste of yet another Houston institution closing its doors... Pros: Hamburgers Cons: Closing after 50 great years more

Best Ribs 12/11/2007

Drop by there at least once a month, Hopefully, use them to cater one of our office parties. Great Food .. Great Service ... 2 mins from downtown more

Bland BBQ 5/31/2007

I can't speak for the quality of the hamburgers, but the barbecue is downright awful. If you?re looking for dry meat and a barbecue sauce without a hint of flavor then this is the place for you. To be fair, the people working there were really nice and the service was commendable. more

good hamburger at a reasonable price 3/12/2007

Stopped by right before closing. Ms Rosetta couldn' t have been nicer. She gave me a tour, showing where the BBQ was and a told a little history about the place. Hamber and fries were great. Ms Rosetta even dropped a rib by for a sampling. Great local flavor w/ locals. more

Good burgers 11/2/2006

Good burgers, hole in the wall type of restaurant. Has been around for a while and is a popular spot for locals. Any kind of burger you can think of and cheap for the amount of food you get.\r ""I had a friend say he was upset because his burger was coming to an end"". more

DRY, DRY, DRY 2/16/2006

not a big fan of this place. not horrible, but by no means what i would choose... brisket is super dry, ribs are fatty, sausage is ok. sides are good but very predictable. dont care at all for their sauce, too thin and bitter. service is great and prices are reasonable. memorial/galleria/kirby area is in desperate need of good barbeque (aside from goode and luling - both of which are better but not dramatically so) so i keep going just because its convenient... Pros: price, sausage, convenience Cons: brisket, ribs more

Not so good 10/9/2002

The only thing worth getting at Ottos is the country ham sandwich (or po-boy). The beef and other meats are not very good. It is average food and not nearly as good as George Bush claims it is. Pros: Country Ham, Nice Atmosphere Cons: BBQ Sauce, Other meats more

eat at otto's; you'll need muchos!!! 8/9/2002

Service is excellent. Food well prepared and adequate. Price affordable. Very satisfying. Pros: inexpensive, crowded, good parking more

Best Burgers since childhood... 7/23/2002

I would have to say, without a doubt, that Otto's is the Best Burger Joint in Houston. Ever since growing up and playing soccer, I have always looked forward to an Otto's burger. Otto's has great ""burger joint atmosphere"", great service and always cold beer. The only thing I could ever say that might be negative about a place I love so much is that their hours are way too short. Go there for lunch or maybe a very early dinner...but don't try to wait too late. It shuts down early Pros: Great Burgers, Inexpensive, Cold Beer Cons: Short Hours more
