Roegels Barbecue Co. – Voss

Veteran Owned/Operated

Roegels Barbecue Co.
Russell & Misty Roegels literally spent years paying dues as a franchise of a small Dallas-based chain before branching out in 2014, building this cozy and comfortable west-side spot into one of the best in Houston.

Russell learned from one of the old-school greats – Roland Lindsey of Bodacious Bar-B-Q in northeast Texas – and continues inventing and improving to this day. Misty’s side dishes are legendary, from the bright and fresh Texas caviar to the boozy bourbon banana pudding. Roegels Barbecue was also one of the first joints in Houston to start making in-house pastrami.

More recently they’ve begun working with North Carolina-style whole hog barbecue, acquiring a dedicated pit to cook the hog and transform it into excellent pulled pork.
