BBQ Godfather

Spring, Texas is evidently large enough for more than one great food truck. This town of 50,000 just north of Houston has been home to Corkscrew BBQ, a Texas Monthly Top 50 selection, since 2011. Now, just five minutes east is a new food truck park where BBQ Godfather sits between a Cajun food truck and The Cupcake Shack. Word is starting to get out and owner Tony Faour said business grows every week.

    Thanks for leaking out another secret BBQ place in the Spring/Woodlands area. Once the lines got crazy at Corkscrew it was a blessing to walk up to the Godfather and get some heavenly BBQ.
