Providing the best BBQ, great indoor and outdoor seating, cold beer, tshirts, koozies and SUPER fun atmosphere.
Since my son moved to Spring TX, Corkscrew BBQ has been a MUST STOP place for us. I've eaten BBQ from North Carolina to West Texas, but Corkscrew is my favorite of all. It doesn't matter if it's beef or pork, the texture and taste are so tender and full of smoky flavor. Fair warning, be in line by 10:45 (the place opens at 11) if you're there for lunch, or you will have to wait for a while. The place usually runs out of everything by two o'clock. This is a very popular place with all the locals.

We hadn't been here in a few months and were pleasantly surprised to find that the best-organized pizzeria in town has added more salads and more pizza combos...along with pasta, sandwiches and desserts. Still family-friendly but with beer and wine if you want them; not as many kids as usual, but there's always a few and sometimes many.

I’ve always liked The Pappacita Cantina on I-45 in Houston. So I was excited when they opened one near The Woodlands. The food was overdone, the service was horrible and management didn’t want to hear my complaints. Will continue to go to the one in Houston but not the one near The Woodlands.

Wife and I went for the first time the other night. On the whole we were satisfied however we felt slightly underwhelmed.
The biggest plus is the quality and choice of meat. Really really good meat and perfect cooked. Another big plus was the service, well the waiting staff (felt the meat carvers were a bit quick and didn’t describe what they were offering). We were given the wrong wine and didn’t notice until first sip, but this was quickly corrected and without fuss.
On to the slight negatives. The market buffet bar is ok, but I expected more if I’m honest. Thought more seafood would be available and also the salad choices were a little limited. Another minor negative was the decor/lighting. It is so bright inside, and this makes it feel a little cheap.
We’ve tried it and enjoyed the majority of it, however we’re not sure we would return?!

We'll set up and serve for one hour, buffet style so you can enjoy your event. All caterings include sliced pickles, onions, jalapenos, fresh bread, Rudy's "sause", plates, plastic cutlery, and napkins. Tea, sweeteners & lemons included. Must be ordered at least one day in advance. Group meals include any combination of Brisket, Turkey, Chopped Meat, Pork Loin, or Sausage and your choice of 3 sides. Includes sliced pickles, onions, jalapenos, fresh bread, Rudy's "sause", plates, plastic cutlery, napkins, tea, sweetners, lemons, cups, and ice. Ask about our Breakfast Tacos.
Granted I'm not a Texan -- yet, but even Washingtonians know what "Goo-od!" tastes like -- and the brisket here is just that. Smokey, tender, moist, with tons of flavor -- flat out dee-licious!! My daughter-in-law makes a great brisket, but the meat here challenges even hers.
We stopped at Rudy's TWICE (at my request) during my 10-day visit to the northern Houston area, if that tells you anything. Got a chance to try most of the sides. All were edible, but Rudy's Beans were the standout. The surroundings aren't fancy, so if you're looking to impress people with anything but the food -- go elsewhere. This is a place to "chow down", let the BBQ sauce dribble down your chin, and smile! Prices are reasonable. (If you've ever cooked brisket from scratch, you know it ain't cheap.) Want to hedge your bet without draining your wallet? Try the moist brisket sandwich; add some cole slaw, a few onions to the stacked-high bun, maybe a pickle and jalapeno on the side -- and open wide. That, folks, is what "Goo-od" tastes like! I'm looking forward to moving close by and being able to visit this joint often.
Those are the pros. Here's one con: The BBQ sauce is added by you at the table from a "community" bottle. Great for personalizing your meal, but NOT so great from a hygiene point of view -- at least not in this retired nurse's opinion. Wrap a napkin around the sauce bottle, or bring along some hand sanitizer to use between shaking the bottle and touching your sandwich. You don't know who has handled that bottle before you or how fastidious they were about hand washing. Some nasty germs can get passed along that way.
That, however, will not keep me from putting this place on my short list of favorite casual "good eats" places.

So delicious we had to go twice! I've been to New Orleans, and this restaurant transported me right back, The food is exquisite, the staff is incredible, you felt like you were talking to old friends the minute you walked in. Our waitress recommended the smoked crawfish, and it was the best thing I've ever had, the gumbo was great, and the etouffee was incredible, the spices were just right. I wish they had other locations. They are definitely a reason to have me return to Texas! This place is a must!

This place is definitely a treasure for Spring, TX. Hard to find as it's tucked in behind a large Mexican restaurant but clearly a very popular place with it's fair share of regulars it seems. Service is awesome, with attentive and friendly staff who genuinely seem to enjoy working there.
The 1/2 order kimchi fries were the perfect appetizer for 2 hungry adults. So many different BBQ dishes to try. If you are an huge fan of sushi, you'll find the sushi OK. The teriyaki chicken bowl is such an awesome combination of flavors.
My only regret-being too full to order fried cheesecake. Go now before the rest of Houston finds out.

Gringo’s Mexican Kitchen is a family of full-service Mexican restaurants in the Houston area. All restaurants serve the highest quality Mexican food, offer a full bar and are open daily Sunday through Saturday for lunch and dinner. The Gringo’s brand identity is stamped with superior quality products combined with excellent value.
I was always try to stop in at Gringos when I’m in town. We were seated promptly when we arrived. I ordered the Cobb salad and my coworker worker ordered a combo plate. He got part of his food as we waited for the rest of the meal to arrive. The salad was crisp and very filling. My coworkers taco had gotten soggy as he waited for the rest of the food. Not sure why all of the wouldn’t arrive together.

Easy to get through the line, food always fresh and comforting. The hot rolls that come around are always welcome! Free ice cream on Sundays, even better! Everyone polite and knowledgeable of the menu, meat consistently fresh and delicious. Their immediate competition is Rudy’s barbecue, although great does not have the sides spring creek has or the rails. Best bet? Spring creek, you will never fail!

The two of us went for our 40th anniversary. Early afternoon, Saturday. Not crowded at all, easy to get to and to park. Large portions. Split an appetizer, Dolmades (3). Try the Zeus Plate, a huge sampler, it has everything Greek you expect, took half of it home. Wife had the kabob plate, substituted lamb for pork (a small upcharge). Lots of meat, cooked to order, no fat or grizzle, excellent. Overall a very pleasant afternoon, not being rushed. Reasonable prices.
