Truth Barbeque

Leonard Botello IV has managed to capture the spirit of his small-town Brenham barbecue joint at a much larger establishment in the heart of the Inner Loop. Powered by five massive offset smokers, the restaurant turns out expertly cooked brisket, ribs, turkey, pulled pork, and homemade sausages, plus crave-worthy sides like tater tot casserole, corn pudding, and green beans that are — somewhat miraculously — not cooked to mush. Add in friendly service from a staff that's quick to help transport an overloaded tray or run to get a refill and the signature sky-high layer cakes to get a restaurant that's leading the way for Houston barbecue joints.
