I had the Avocado Swiss burger and really enjoyed it. Service was fast even with their many customers.

They have good food but a little overpriced compared to how many bbq restaurants are in Houston. They have excellent burgers!! My personal favorite is the mushroom swiss burger

During a recent visit to Houston, I had the opportunity to try Otto's BBQ. I thought the ribs were really good. However, the baked beans were not very flavorful and the potato salad was not creamy. It was priced reasonably, especially for lunch, so I...More
