Blood Bros. Barbecue photographed for Houston’s 2019 Eater Awards.
“2019 was packed with strong contenders for Restaurant of the Year, but no new eatery in the city better exemplifies Houston’s diverse culinary scene than Blood Bros. Barbecue. From its beginnings as a pop-up to a bona fide Space City phenomenon, Blood Bros. Barbecue has always exemplified the city’s distinct culinary ethos in a way that Houston can really be proud of.
Whether it’s green curry boudin or barky brisket or juicy pork belly burnt ends, the meats at Blood Bros. are always top-notch, and the lines that snake out of its building on Bellaire Boulevard are proof that its barbecue operation is really clicking. When combined with sides like brisket fried rice, pinto beans, and jalapeno creamed corn, this is the kind of meal that feels like going on a trip across the world without ever leaving the neighborhood.”
