Gabby's delivers very good food and drinks, courteous staff. Brisket is especially good. One of Pasadena's better BBQ restaurants. Will return.

Gabby's BBQ is very good. Sides are good, salads are also. I always get the brisket plate extra lean with two sides and a salad. Its outstanding. My wife likes all meat plate. Easy to get a table and pretty good service! Stan
