“... The first day I ordered the bacon mushroom Swiss cheese burger special. It got to the table.....OMG this thing was huge. I felt that I had to unhook my jaw and swallow it like a python swallowing a medicine ball or some sort....”

“... Probably the best BBQ brisket I’ve had here in Houston. It even rivals Rudy’s for quality and taste. I bought 5 pounds (yes, 5) and took it back to the office -- the guys destroyed that tray in under 30 minutes, along with the sauce. All of them were begging for more -- and I told them they have to buy their own crack now. And I showed them where :) The brisket is smoked just right, with that nice pink ring and well.. it’s just heaven for your taste buds. The sauce is smokin’ too, with just a bit of spice to it – it’s really good! Not sure who Tony is, but he’s got it goin’ on! And just to make sure, I’ve been there 3 times now :) and every time that brisket has been spot on!...”

“This was my first time in Texas and didn't have a lot of time to find BBQ. I found Tony's was only a couple of blocks from my hotel so I thought I would try it. Boy was I surprised at how amazing it was. I got the Brisket/Ribs combo with fries and coleslaw. The brisket was incredibly fresh (considering they were about to close) and the ribs were tender and meaty. Fries were great, slaw was also great. Again, for everything to be so fresh 15 minutes before closing was impressive. The manager was who took my order (I think his name was Frank) and was a great guy. Asked me where I was from, what I was doing in town and really seemed to care about his restaurant. Great experience that I would HIGHLY recommend and can't wait to get back.”

“Always get great service - been coming here ever since it opened. Get a 2-meat plate for dinner and a sliced beef sandwich to take for next day lunch. Turkey is fantastic too and so are the ribs. Lots of meat for the price.”
