Had good BBQ at Gator Junction on I-10 about 15 miles west of Winnie, in between Beaumont and Houston. Pretty nice place - gas station/BBQ pit. I had sausage and brisket. They don't do beef ribs, which is what I really wanted.
Any recommendations for a) a BBQ joint in Hosuton that does do beef ribs? b) a non-chain hole-in-the-wall Mexican place (Mexican-Mex as opposed to Texi-Mex). I'll be back in Houston at the end of this month and need a couple of killer places to feed at.
