Delicious food, friendly service. I did learn to order my brisket “wet” and/or ask for the heal (at least to dievify I don’t want it lean). Last time I was there I didn’t and the brisket was too lean for my likings. I wish they’d add that to their menu (the choices of how to order the brisket)... I think they usually serve it lean, but sometimes that’s too dry for me. It would be nice if they added that “choice” or terminology to their menu so customers would know it’s a possibility. I ordered the 2meat combo of brisket and sausage with sides of green beans and dirty rice. Loved it!

Swinging Door is a Pecan smoked BBQ restaurant. The Pecan wood gives the meat a unique flavor. Other smoke houses use Hickory. We tried the Swinging Door 40 yrs ago and keep on going back. We have had birthday's, anniversaries, and reunions there and have never been disappointed. Thank you SD for always staying the same great place.

Full disclosure, although I was raised in Houston, I was born in Kansas City, Missouri, which is known for it’s barbecue.  For me, the pinnacle of barbecue will always be Kansas City barbecue.  Even with my limited expectations, I still venture out to Houston barbecue spots from time to time.  Before heading to Braman Winery, we stopped down the street to Swinging Door Barbecue for a birthday dinner.

This place smells like a BBQ place should smell . The smokey goodness hits you as soon as you walk in and you just know you are in for a treat! I have personally never seen so much food on one plate! I did order the three meat, 3 side combo. Very large portions! I loved the ribs! Also had the brisket and the turkey also excellent. The dirty rice is good, potato salad great and I liked the beans too! I will return to this place! It is great BBQ! Very down home atmosphere. Service was awesome!

Good Food and Friendly Staff. I love this place, some of the best BBQ in Houston. It is very reasonable priced for the the food you get . It is a little bit of a hidden treasure but worth stumblin' in to. Use to make it a point to stop in before I moved from South Texas. Luckily I live 5 minutes from here now.

Best BBQ around. I've been eating at swinging door BBQ since I was a little kid. We used to drive in from the city just to eat there. I moved away for several years and had to check it out again once we moved back and it was just as awesome as I remember. Good simple BBQ done right! Love the ribs, brisket an sausage! The cobbler is to die for! Wish I lived closer but is definitely worth the drive!!

Home Away From Home. The scenic drive captures the feeling of this place completely. It's a nice southern "down home" place with killer BBQ. Got a Brisket Sandwich with a Baked Potato, and topped it off with their Brownie Sundae. The meat was killer and the sauce was unlike I had ever tasted before. The bread could have been a bit "warmer' but that is just nit-picking. It will fill you up and you'll remember why you love living in Texas!

Among The Greats Of Texas Barbeque. First, the bad news. I'm not crazy about the brisket. The end. Now for the good news. Amazing ribs, great sausage (but a dining companion of mine felt they were too fatty), very nice sauce, solid potato salad, etc... and a really awesome Swinging Door root beer. Ask for it. Go for the food. The cold drinks. The intoxicating pecan smoke outside.

Whoever wrote the review saying this place has dry brisket... well, I just don't veleive they were talking about this place. My husband and I decided to have an adventure and drive out to find this place, and I'm glad we did. Delicious food and nice people, what more can you ask for? We'll be back, no doubt.

Yum!. This is my favorite BBQ place in Texas. One of my favorite things about it (other than the fabulous flavors!) is that it's not cafeteria style, practically unheard of around here. I love the ribs the best, but it's all good. It's a drive, but it's seriously worth it!

As soon as I parked, we noted the warm welcoming of the venue. We were greeted with an upbeat hello from the staff! The cleanliness was sparkling. The background music was not overwhelming. We dined on the patio. There was a wide variety of items to choose from. There was no skimping on the food, (look at the size of the sandwich!) Food was all in house made, it was yummylicious. Awesome Mac n cheese ...we had the brisket, and a pulled pork sandwich and 2 sides each. James R and the lady who served the food were welcoming everyone and sure the entire experience was a 5✨ Stars plus. Definitely worth the revisit and bringing friends.

The people working there are extremely nice and the food they serve is amazing. Had a beef rib plate and pretty much every bite would melt in your mouth with an explosion of flavor. Please open up a place closer to Austin !!

James will welcome with a friendly smile and give you a wise advise…. Don’t hurt yourself! Brisket is delicious and portions are larger than the average restaurant. Very glad to find this gem.

Got the 4 bone Beef Rib. Good flavor but a little bit dry. Not as juicy as Terry Black's or The Original Black's.

After visiting for brunch I was impressed with the selection, taste and customer service. So much so, that I just knew they were the type of business I wanted to support and have cater. Wendy went above and beyond with her recommendations, help, communication, and service. She and her team did an excellent job catering our event and I would highly recommend them. Our guest could not get enough of the brisket, it was the crowd favorite.

Go here instead of Rudy's. Taste great, the portions are hefty that won't left you question if it's enough. The brisket are okay, i would say they need to be a bit more saucy and fatty but maybe that's just my taste. The breads 🍞 are Southern Hospitality sized, they are very thick and filling. Mashed Potatoes taste organic and fresh. The rice was not over oiled and flavourful. Overall, I would definitely have lunch here again.

Highly recommend! They have enormous and the best baked chopper potatoes, they have amazing Buffalo wings, the meats and sides are flavorful and done right. Their dirty rice is among the best I’ve had. Wendy the front end manager goes above and beyond for service and truly cares about the quality of food and service provided.

I usually don't comment on staff, but pulled into the parking lot. There's an elderly gentleman with his cane shooting across the parking lot. Three staff members came out held the door open and helped him walk to his table. They served his plate and brought it to his table. Today you don't see things like that. People are so involved in their own things. They don't take the time to be of service. The staff is always friendly and the food is great. All you can eat breakfast buffet. That one act of kindness will keep me coming back here.
