While on business trip to the Houston Area, I found Gabby's for dinner. you order at the counter. (not what I really like to do) If you order a baked potato they charge more to a already expensive meal. Now for the good part. I got a chicken fried steak, Baked potato. In all fairness to Gabby's the baked potato... More

It was very friendly and had exactly what we were looking for - Texas BBQ. Great selection of sides and meats and even a tremendous salad that my wife ordered. You want Texas BBQ - This is it!

We were in search of a dinner spot close to the interstate that was not a chain, so we chose Gabby's. My boyfriend had a lean brisket plate with ranch beans and I had pulled pork with the same. We ordered 2 Shiner's to wash it down. Sadly, the bill for this order was $40! The portion for the plates... More

IMO the sausage and brisket were really good, the chicken was good; however, I wasn't a big fan of the ribs. Over all, I would recommend Gabby's because there were four people in our party and all three of my guests were happy with their meals on each of our visits.

Always love Gabbys. The sauce is fantastic. Wish they would do something about their french fries - way way to greasy. Had the chicken fried steak today - it could be split between 2 people.

I had the sliced beef sandwich. The meat was VERY tender (+++), I personally didn't care for the sauce - a little too sweet/ketchup-ie. In fact, the sauce, for me, killed it. I'd be a 4 + star on this place otherwise. Place seemed very clean and well maintained. Atmosphere just fine... lots of folks diggin 'n...with smiles.

I have been coming to Gabbys for years. The food is always great and the staff are super friendly. The one on Shepherd has been updated recently and is much more comfy now. My favorite is the brisket. It's always perfect!!!
