Gabby’s Steaks, Ribs, Bar-B-Q – Our Search for Houston’s Best Restaurants for Kids
Age Appropriate: All ages!
Hi, I’m Juliette! My husband, my 6-year-old and I love going out to eat and we are sharing our restaurant finds with you.
We went back to our Texas roots this week: good old-fashioned barbecue at Gabby’s on North Shepherd. My husband has loved this restaurant for years but for some reason I was always hesitant to go. I will take the blame for waiting so long!
I recommend you check their website for nights with musicians, it makes it so much better. We had a great duo, Southern Light, who sing classics country songs that guests sing along with – kids included of course! Actually when my sister-in-law mentioned she would like country music at her wedding last year, we thought they would be perfect!
You order first and they serve it on a tray you take to your table. We ordered their 3-meat platters to share and it is a lot of delicious, mouth-watering barbecue. We ordered coleslaw, green beans and mashed potatoes and our son had a huge bowl of macaroni and cheese. We savored every bite, listening to the wonderful songs, talking and feeling relaxed and sated!
We checked out their bathroom and it was a fun surprise: cowgirl chic decor, spacious and ready to welcome all the kiddos coming with their families!
Gabby’s is, in short, a wonderful restaurant that reminds you once more of all Houston has to offer – and every once in a while, it is nice to feel you are in a small country town!
See you next week for another culinary adventure!
