Harlem Road Texas BBQ

 A sampling of the fare from Harlem Road, including the brisket sandwich, jalapeño sausage, coleslaw, and pecan pie. 

Two Fort Bend County barbecue joints earned the recognition of Texas Monthly in the magazine’s list of “50 BBQ Honorable Mentions” published earlier this week.

Dozier’s BBQ in Fulshear and Harlem Road Texas BBQ in Richmond are among this year’s list of Texas Monthly’s best barbecue spots in the state. 

Dozier’s, 8222 FM 359, led by pitmaster Jim Buchanan, has been serving up classic Texas-style barbecue since 1957 using pecan smoke and an offset smoker. 

Harlem Road, 9823 Harlem Road, opened by Armenian chef Ara Malekian in 2018, has European and Middle Eastern influences and uses oak smoke and a cabinet smoker.
