Steam table sides were not hot. Ribs were also just barely warm. Mopping restrooms without warning sign that the floor was wet, 5 yr old slipped. Wanted to charge for honey mustard to go with dinner. I have enjoyed Otto's for years and was disappointed this meal since it was a family night.

Best burger in town. I brought my in-laws from Ohio to try it. We left completely satisfied with lunch, and my in-laws took a long afternoon nap. Bonus!!!

More attentive, especially at breakfast. I don't like having to track down the waiter for a refill of coffee.

From Our Editors

When husband-and-wife team Otto and Annie Sofka first founded Otto's Barbecue and Hamburgers in 1950, they never dreamed barbecue would become the meat and potatoes of the family's livelihood. The small corner grocery store specialized in canned and boxed goods—that is until Annie started cooking up hamburgers at the request of hungry regulars. As the popularity of Annie’s burgers grew, the store’s shelves were cleared out to make room for tables and chairs to accommodate the growing lines of customers. Within two years, the Sofkas were officially in the burger business. By the ’60s, they were ready to add old family barbecue recipes to the menu, and Otto’s has been a favorite pit stop for Houston barbecue lovers ever since.

Three generations have now manned the kitchen at Otto’s, satisfying customers as varied as George Bush Sr., Liberace, and George Foreman with barbecue that has been smoked in a hickory grill for 18 hours. Chefs pair seven meat choices, including beef brisket, slow-smoked pork ribs, and sausage links, with a range of homestyle sides and giant stuffed potatoes, creating full meals that showcase the flavors of the South better than an art installation built from chicken-fried steaks. The chefs at Otto’s also serve up their own line of bottled sodas, ensuring enough frothy root beer, orange soda, and cream soda to wash down the saucy eats.
