Gil's is definitely an unpretentious place, and while it doesn't look like much from the outside, it's definitely some of the best BBQ I've had in quite a while. Gil was friendly...


Gil's Barbecue is terrible. Avoid the place. It is a dump.

Barbecue 6/12/2011

Avoid going to Gil's. The barbecue is not that good and the place looks like it is never cleaned. Gil Eng, the Owner, is never there. If you want very good barbecue, go to Big Daddy's around the corner on Westheimer going toward Hwy. 6. more

BBQ Bust 7/27/2010

We came here for a lunch recently and it was awful. Despite the fact that it's gotten really good reviews, this place is nothing like what other people have described. It was filthy and the food was dry and tasteless. I got the mac and cheese and cheesy potatoes as a side, and the cheese was like congealed Velveeta - totally disgusting. The sausage was just about the only good meat out of the brisket, turkey, and ribs that I tried. The sauce was not memorable at all. In fact, the only thing memorable about it was that I didn't even bother to use it after tasting it. If you're thinking of coming here, don't bother - save your money and go to a better BBQ place. Pros: Good sausage Cons: Just about everything else more

Almost better than nothing... 7/1/2009

A colleague and I decided to try Gil's Barbecue based on the 4 /1/2 star reviews on this site. Pros: They were open and cheap Cons: Food, atmoshphere, resulting sqirts, little English spoke more

An exceptional Houston BBQ restaurant 2/27/2009

Gil's is definitely an unpretentious place, and while it doesn't look like much from the outside, it's definitely some of the best BBQ I've had in quite a while. Gil was friendly and quite attentive as he prepared our plates. The food was definitely at a value price. My husband and I both received huge portions of meat with our dinner plates. The BBQ was incredible. It managed to have enough of a ""kick"" to it without the spices being overwhelming. There was just enough smokiness to it to be just right, and there was a hint of sweetness without it becoming cloyingly sweet. The meat was perfectly cooked. Between my husband and I, we had sausage, beef, ribs, and pork. The ribs were at that just right stage where you can easily pull the bone from the meat. There was a great smoke flavor to everything. Throughout the meal, Gil was attentive and courteous. Pros: Excellent food, great value Cons: Side items choices are a little limited more

Excellent All-Around 8/10/2008

I have only been there twice when I have to go to Eldridge Parkway for company events, but both times I've been there, the food and the service has been excellent! The chopped beef sandwiches are probably the best I've tasted and they do little things like give me free sauce on the side. They have a bbq buffet that includes everything they offer, meat, sides, even dessert and a drink for just under $15 bucks and it's the best. Check this place out. It's the best undiscovered barbecue place in Houston! Pros: Great food, great value, great service Cons: Way out on Westheimer, almost to Highway 6 more

One of the best kept secret BarBQue in Houston 11/25/2006

We love their chopped beef baked potatoe! It's huge. It's topped with loads of chopped beef that's well flavored and no fat unlike other BBQ places. You get to customize or put the toppings yourself so you can put extra cheese! Sauce has a kick to it. Great prices, owner is very nice. Family oriented with play area for kids, tv on sports. Pros: Food and price more

Good food, Good price. Period. 8/24/2002

For good downhome real food, you just can't beat Gil's BBQ at the corner of Westheimer and Gestner. Nothing fancy here: no candlelight, fresh cut flowers or even table cloth. What you get are juicy brisket, yummy smoked turkey, roast-chicken, meaty ribs and delicious sausages. The side dishes are equally tempting. The food is freshly prepared all day in the huge oven in the back, and the portions are more than adequate. Even their famous BBQ sauce is prepared on site as needed to maintain freshness. Finger-licking is a common sight here. Pros: Fresh & tasty food, Good parking, Good price Cons: Unexciting decor, No music more

Out-of-this-world delicious! 7/18/2002

Gil's serves huge portions of tender, juicy meats - beef, ribs, turkey, sausage, chicken and pork, with a barbecue sauce that is out-of-this-world delicious. There is a wide selection of truly sumptuous sides, including creamy cole slaw, tasty baked beans, moist and flavorful dirty rice, and, much more. The friendly ambiance, mixed with the latest in sports casting makes this the best barbecue restaurant in Houston. Pros: Delicious, Inexpensive, Large portions more
