Re:Great Houston Restaurants
I lived in Houston for 8 years before we moved here to Kansas, so I'm familiar with both.
I do miss Texas barbeque - loved the beef brisket, ribs and Links, but don't remember any notable chicken places in Houston. And Texas barbeque wasn't about the sauce, it was about smoking the meat. My favorite wasn't in Houston, though - it was the City Market in Luling.
But I am able to console myself by driving an hour east to Kansas City and eating at Arthur Bryant's, Gates or Fiorello's Jack Stack.
