They offer a good selection of freshly made BBQ Food to eat there or take to go (i.e briskets, pulled pork, ribs, to name a few). My favorite is the loaded bake potatoe with pulled pork. Definitely a filling meal. In my opinion it's a...More

Poor airport BBQ. Service was bad, food was too. This is not a good place to represent Texas BBQ as it can be so good and Harlon's was so bad.

Just returned to the U.S. and had a three hour layover at IAH. Decided on BBQ from the food court options in Terminal B and was sorely disappointed. The brisket tasted more like boiled meat, it definitely wasn't smoked brisket. The ribs were fatty and...More
