About Gabby's Ribs & Barb-Q

  • Live Music Friday & Saturday

  • All U Can Eat Ribs Fri-Sun

Locally owned and operated, the first Gabby's opened in Houston 24 years ago and our friends, families and guests have been returning faithfully ever since because Gabby's is the "real deal". Genuine slow smoked Texas barbecue cooked and served in a Texas Hill country ranch house setting. Friend, if you're paying for baby back ribs, beef briskets, whole chickens, hill country sausage and smoked turkey, that are cooked in a little oven back in the kitchen at some hamburger joint, you just don't have all the information.

Genuine Texas barbecue highest quality fresh beef, pork, turkey, and chicken slow smoked in our handmade Oyler wood burning pits, from mesquite Texas. Meats are slow smoked, briskets up to 15 hours. Original barbecue sauces, bourbon butter glazes and spicy Memphis rib and chicken seasoning.

Best Bar-B-Q around! – Gabby's is just plain gooood Texas Bar-B-Q! Great Texas themed atmosphere and a place to take the family, or for a business lunch. Or go through the convenient drive-through on the way home or back to the office! Large restaurant and plenty of parking! And not noisy either. There is a large menu of combo meals and ala carte items to choose from. The best smoked Bar-B-Q around!

The Best BBQ! – Gabby's BBQ is absolutely delicious!! Their chopped BBQ sandwich is the best I have ever had. Since having their sandwich, no other chopped BBQ sandwich even comes close. Gabby's is a great family environment and their catering is just as good as eating in. I highly recommend it to any barbeque lovers!!!

Great Food, Fun Music! – Must go for the tasty BBQ and great live music. Gabby's is our new favorite hangout on Friday nights! Awesome place to bring kiddos. Our 20 month old son loves to sing and dance along with the live music. Fantastic staff that really caters to families.

Thanks Gabby's for great food and fun!!

Good BBQ, I'll go back – I've ate at the restaurant and at an event they catered and both were good. They did a fine job catering.

Longtime Houston barbecue chain known for finger lickin' ribs, live country music and a family-friendly atmosphere. – In Short
With their trademark Texas ranch house exterior and lively Western decor inside, this casual barbecue spot is still a favorite of Houstonians after all these years. The menu includes a variety of burgers and sandwiches, stuffed potatoes, smoked chicken, sausage, brisket, turkey and Gabby's trademark ribs. Sides are made fresh and include fried okra, ranch beans, coleslaw, and mac and cheese. Barbecue fans in a hurry can take advantage of the convenient drive-through. Also offers a full bar.
