Boogies Chicago Style Bbq Houston
I am also reviewing the Boogie’s location in Missouri City on Texas Pkwy. I ordered a two meat plate with sausage/rib tips and sides of green beans/cole slaw. The cole slaw looked and tasted like pre-packaged generic slaw. The green beans were good. The meat…was good, but while I was eating a rib tip I experienced a sharp pain in the filling of one of my back teeth. I ended up fishing a piece of aluminum foil out of my mouth that was interacting with the filling and causing the pain. The staff should be more careful when preparing the plate!More
Not sure if this is affiliated with the one in Missouri City but this report is for the one in Missouri City. Great food but poor service!!!

Waits said ribs are among the most popular items for the restaurant.
Walking into Boogies Chicago Style BBQ, customers will notice walls the colors of ketchup and mustard bottles, few tables and a chalkboard menu stretching from ceiling to counter. Owner and Chicago transplant Lamont Waits has used his hometowns techniques to draw customers from around the Houston area since 2006.
He opened his Missouri City location in 2014 at 1767 Texas Parkway, and he launched a food truck in July.
We get a lot of business in the downtown area, Katy area, Cypress area, Waits said. So we said, hey, we should try to capitalize on that with a food truck.
Waits moved to Houston from Illinois in 2002 working as a logistics coordinator for a health company, but he said he always enjoyed cooking. He was dissatisfied with the smokier barbecue more characteristic to Texas and yearned for the heat-infused taste of Chicago-style barbecue.
Traditionally, in Chicago its more grilled. But when I transcended here I adopted the craft of smoking it, he said. But I learned how to do it without so much smoke and more heat.
With his wife, Nicoya, Waits began cooking and selling from a trailer around Houston. He opened his first location on West Airport Boulevard in 2009 but closed it in January in favor of a food truck to better serve sprawling customers.
It just took off, Waits said of the rib tips. We kind of have a cant-miss menu.

Review: Boogies Chicago Style Bbq Finds Niche
I have not shied away from mentioning my Chicago and Midwestern roots, and they will continue to influence my perceptions and thoughts as I do my best to convince you I have the bona fides of a respectable food critic.
So if youd like to express any residual anger at me for Whataburger being bought by Chicagos BDT Capital Partners in 2019 or anything else you need to get off your chest, feel free to do so, take a deep breath, and come back and read this when youre ready.
I know we here in Texas have the objectively, scientifically-tested proof that our barbecue is superior to anyone elses. And I wholeheartedly agree. But you can look no further than Boogies Chicago Style BBQ on Texas Parkway in Missouri City for proof that the palate of the Fort Bend County barbecue connoisseur is just as welcoming of imports from other parts of the U.S. as it is of grilled meats from Asia or the Middle East.
Lamont Boogie Waits opened his first location in Houston in 2002, but shuttered it in 2017 to concentrate on the Missouri City location.
Chicago-style barbecue has a lot more in common with the Gulf Coast and the South than you might imagine, and a lot of that has to do with the success of its Black entrepreneurs Harolds Chicken Shack perhaps being the most famous example.
At Boogies youll find Boudin Balls , as well as the full-length version of the Cajun sausage found mainly in Louisiana Creole cooking .
