Make no mistake, this centrally located BBQ joint is not related to the legendary City Market in Luling, TX. Though, for hungry Houstonians that don’t feel like driving two and a half hours to grab dinner at the original, Luling City Market makes for a convenient and tasty alternative. The casual, counter-service concept is outfitted in authentic Texas memorabilia and is set just inside the Loop, near the Galleria.
Grab a tray and load up on brisket, ribs, chicken and home-made sausage links, all cooked over post oak wood. Luling City sides include pinto beans, potato salad and coleslaw, as well as mini pecan pies and Texas-sized brownies. For a savory souvenir, pick up a bottle of the restaurant’s housemade Bar-B-Que Sauce. The tangy, mustard-based concoction goes with just about everything and can be shipped world wide.
Luling City Market is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. and Sundays from noon until 7 p.m. Heading there for lunch? Get there early or be prepared to wait.
