HOUSTON – It’s new to the Houston barbecue scene, but Stockyard Bar-B-Q is ready to compete.

“I’m making a name right now, and I’m making it based on quality,” said Co-Owner Lou Joubarani. “We do pretty much everything in house, from the bread to the barbecue sauce to the banana pudding.”

Serving your favorites like brisket, ribs, chicken and turkey with all the fixings.

“These are our sides. This is our mac and cheese, we have the heart attack potatoes, the dirty rice and we also have the green beans,” said one of the servers as he went down the food line.

Chew on this! Stockyard made a move to the big city after making it big in the country.

“If you can sell barbecue in the country you can sell it here in Houston,” Joubarani said of his move.

Born in Syria, Joubarani eventually moved to Houston in 1993.

“I say ya’ll all the time,” he said jokingly.

The naturalized Texan dove right into the food loving culture.

“We have a store in the country in a town called Needville, and we’ve had a successful kitchen there

for many years.” He said, “We decided to try barbecue out of a trailer in the parking lot.”

That old country restaurant is still around.

“We still make the pretty famous Simon’s Korner hamburgers,” he added.

The team at Stockyard Bar-B-Q is aiming to have the same impact in Houston.
