BBQ boss Greg Gatlin (who owns one the best BBQ joints in America, btw) puts his spin on Gulf Coast comfort food at this hot fried bird and seafood spot, opening to the public at the end of June in the very neighborhood Gatlin grew up in. The chef plays to his hometown roots alongside his uber talented right hand woman, co-owner Michelle Wallace. Get your hands dirty with succulent, crisp as all hell chicken and buttery biscuits; slurp up Third Coast gumbo, saucy BBQ shrimp, and fresh oysters; and an excellent hot chicken sandwich, this one with a locally loved Vietnamese riff.
How to book: Stay tuned for opening updates on Facebook and stop by for first come, first served seating.

The basics: This family-run fan favorite from pit boss Greg Gatlin underwent a bigger, better facelift when it moved from 19th to its new location on Ella. Current kitchen master and Executive Chef Michelle Wallace (who you can catch on this season of Food Network’s “BBQ Brawl”) is not just keeping the ship afloat, she’s elevating it to a whole new level with specials from Sausage, Chicken, Shrimp & Crab Gumbo to Smoked Oxtails. Order the trio of Smoked Ribs (there’s a short and meaty baby back varietal, a St. Louis-style spare rib, and a giant beef number) to engage your inner-caveman as you gnaw ‘em straight down to the bone or keep it slightly more civilized with a fully loaded "Kitchen Sink" Sandwich, Biscuits & Gravy, and giblet-laden Dirty Rice so filthy you’ll need a cold shower afterward.
What the pitmasters say: “There are few bridges to the BBQ of a bygone era left in Texas.
None of them have been able to bring that style of BBQ into the current landscape better than Greg, his family, and Head Chef Michelle Wallace. Their importance to the History of Houston BBQ should never be understated.” - Joseph Quellar, JQ’s Tex Mex BBQ
“The breakfast! Brisket tacos! Chicken and waffles! And the Sink sandwich—so good. Southern hospitality and BBQ at its finest. Their breakfast program is delicious. Especially the made-from-scratch biscuits.” - Don Nguyen, Khói Barbecue
“All three have flavorful and out the box product offerings that distinguish these joints in their own right as doing BBQ uniquely and consistently. Not only is their BBQ awesome, but the pitmasters are also as well! We are honored to be in their company!” (On Blood Bros., Feges, and Gatlin’s) - Karen Fain, Fainmous BBQ

Local pitmasters recently named Gatlin’s one of the city’s best places to score great barbecue and we wholeheartedly agree. Pitboss Greg Gatlin’s family-owned and -operated haunt has been around since 2010, with executive chef Michelle Wallace helping to steer the ship these days. You’ll want the ribs, here—baby backs, spare, or beef, they are all stupid good; as are the brisket and egg breakfast tacos, dirty rice, and loaded spuds, plus specials like fish and grits and so much more. 
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating or order take-out via Toast.
