I grew up in Tomball (no judgement people!). Out of all the BBS joints across the country I've eaten at (not that any place outside of Texas can even compare anyway) this is my favorite. Best brisket and sauce you'll find, in my opinion. I get a meat-stuffed potato everytime I come into town now. Desserts and salads are also to be enjoyed. Can't say too many good things about management but as for the food, which is why people come anyway, you cannot get better BBQ and country food in North Houston than at Rib Tickler!
Pros: Potatoes, Desserts, Brisket, Sauce, Price, Iced Tea.
Cons: The management is shabby, closed on Mondays and often VERY early on other days.
