bars to close, restaurants limited 

Updated 3/17/20

On 3/16/20, the city of Houston and Harris County ordered bars closed and restaurants to close dine-in facilities for at least 2 weeks. Restaurants are able to provide to-go service, including, drive-thru, pick-up and delivery. This page will shift to offering a central place to find information about how barbecue restaurants are now providing service.

Rusty Buckle BBQ Co. - New Caney


COVID19 UPDATE:  We are continuing to closely monitor local, state and federal government suggestions and instructions and we will abide by what the law says.  We feel that common sense is the best medicine, regardless of the threat.  Tomorrow, Wednesday March 18 will begin something new for us, all of us.  As it pertains to Rusty Buckle BBQ, one thing will remain, delicious BBQ!  We will open for carry out at 11am, just like always; anticipating larger orders and an increase in demand, we have prepared more food than normal, loading for what we consider a heavy Saturday,  We will stay open until we are out of food. I will post a link on our social media pages tomorrow that will take you to our online portal to place and pay for pick up orders beginning on Thursday. Please be patient with us and with each other, we are aware that parking is less than wonderful. The county removed the culvert that allowed access to the lot just to the east of us but we try to keep the area under the trees clear so that you may continue to park in the lot and exit closer to the new construction on the corner.

Starting Thursday, we ask that if you are dining in with us that you leave the two marked spots closest to the door for our staff to deliver pick up orders safely and quickly.  

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for more immediate updates to our menu, hours and any specials that may be offered.  Thanks for your support, we pray that you and your loved ones will be safe throughout this troublesome time.

I've done two things for a living in my adult life.  1.  Serve our country in the United States Air Force.  2. Cook Barbecue.   The next 15 days will be the most stressful of the restaurant industries life. No restaurant is fully prepared to go from a sit down establishment to strictly 100% togo.  We all understand that this has to be done but it doesn't make it easy without any warning or preparation.  During this time we ask for your continued support.  Here at Roegels Barbecue we pride ourselves on not only putting out great barbecue but also providing you a clean and safe environment to enjoy your meal. Being forced to close our dining room and only being able to serve togo orders is heartbreaking for me and my team.  We love looking over the counter and seeing you all enjoying the meal that we have prepared for you. 

 We will be making some menu changes for the time being to make it easier for you all to come and get some "grab and go" ROEGELS BARBECUE.   


Feel free to call ahead or email me your order. We will do our best to have it ready when you get here.




Here are a few things that we will be offering.


Brown bag special. $11.99

1 meat sandwich, chips, and drink (substitute a side order instead of chips for $1 more)


Family meals

All family meals include bread or buns, BBQ sauce, Pickles, peppers, and onions


Numero Uno

1 pound of smoked meat, (2) 1/2 pints sides



Family Pack

1-1/2 pounds of smoked meat, 3 pints of side orders.



The Big Pig

3 pounds of smoked meat, 3 quarts of sides



The Rib Feast

1 slab pork ribs, 2 pints of side orders



1, 2, and 3 meat plates will still be available for order.


Pastrami Thursday is still on!!!


I would just like to say THANK YOU all for your continued support of Roegels Barbecue.  My family, my team, and myself truly appreciate each and every one of you. All of us are working hard to make sure that you can enjoy some TEXAS BARBECUE even if you can't eat it here.


We completely understand if you are unable to make it in.  I am working on a plan to do curbside service or some sort of drive thru line.


If you can't get here now PLEASE CONSIDER PURCHASING AN E-GIFT CARD  to use the next time you make it our way.

God bless each and every one of you and God bless America !!!

feges bbq - houston

Updated 3/17/20 - Ph: (832) 409-6118 - 3, Greenway Plaza Suite C-210, Houston, TX 77046

Two years ago on this exact day we opened our doors to the public for the very first time. Two years ago we started building a team we consider family (some actually are!) and a brand we are proud of. It’s our commitment to keep our staff working and providing BBQ to the community through OUR NEW ONLINE ORDER SITE FOR DELIVERY AND PICK-UP!! We are going to ease in with lunch only for today (11-3) and will start with our extended hours (11-6) on Wednesday. Head to our website (link in bio) to order online for pick-up or delivery. We also have a link to purchase e-gift-cards! @ Feges BBQ



How to order for pick-up at our Greenway Plaza location

For pick-up simply fill out the order form, indicate a pick-up date and time (a minimum of 15 minutes is required to assemble the order), and check-out online.

How to order delivery

We want to help our customers be as safe and healthy as possible through the coronavirus concerns, so we are launching a delivery service. On our online ordering page, you’ll find a “DELIVERY” item that you can purchase, with space for your address and contact information. But first, please read through the following before ordering:

Delivery Minimums and Fees

To qualify for delivery, orders must be a minimum $25 before tax, and are subject to a $7.50 delivery fee. All payment must be completed on the website. To limit any unnecessary person-to-person contact the driver will call or text you to notify you your order has arrived. The order will be left at the door or front desk. Any order placed that does not meet the delivery minimum will get a call back to ask about adding to the order, or if you’d prefer to pick up your order in store.

Delivery Hours

Our delivery window is 11am-6pm Monday-Friday. Please allow 45-60 minutes for delivery outside the Greenway Plaza complex. Delivery times are estimations and are subject to change based on order volume and road conditions.

Delivery Zone

In-house (meaning Feges BBQ employees!!) delivery available within a 3 mile radius of our location. If you order from outside our radius, we will contact our delivery partners at Favor Fleet to make the delivery at no additional cost to you.

Driver and Customer Safety

Our priority at this time is the safety of our customers and our employees/drivers. Each driver will travel with a full box of gloves he/she will be changing before handling each delivery. The drivers will also have hand sanitizer and exercise extra precaution. Orders will be bagged and sealed before leaving the restaurant and drivers have been instructed to simply place the order at the doorstep or front desk, contact the customer, and TO NOT HAVE ANY PERSON-TO-PERSON CONTACT.

Your Contact Info

Please provide us with your full address and phone number, along with any special instructions for delivery. Please note that drivers will be using navigation apps, so if you are aware that locations may be different in real life than they are on Google Maps, please let us know.


When placing an order for delivery, add the delivery item to your cart in addition to your order. This will inform our staff that your order is for delivery, not pickup (the checkout page will still say "pickup"). Orders that are placed without the delivery charge included will be considered pickup orders.

This program has also been put on hold.

daddy duncan's bbq - katy

Updated 3/15/20 - Ph: 281-852-5577 - facebook.com/daddyduncansbbq

Daddy Duncan’s BBQ, Katy, TX will resume food truck pop-ups and private catering events. Although, we’ve had some events cancel for the month of March we’ve had others reach out to try and fill those days. We will also continue to supply our 9 collaboration restaurants in Katy until further notice. With Mrs. Duncan being a nurse for 18 years cleanliness has always been a top priority while preparing food at our commercial kitchen and on our food truck. Every surface has been and will continue to be sanitized. We will stop putting out self-serve hot sauces, and continue to use the small plastic single-serve containers for sauces and sliced bread in ziplock bags. All employees will be wearing gloves and changing them periodically during service. All employees are ServeSafe certified and professional food service members. We’re also offering free-delivery to our customers that prefer not to wait in lines or dine-in around big crowds. We feel it’s our duty with some meat shortages and our access to them, to keep supplying our customers at the same prices we’ve offered for 3 years now. Thank you for your continued support and many blessings.

Chef Randy Duncan

2 Guys 1 Pit BBQ

Updated 3/18/20 - Ph: (832) 559-3923 - 11711 Spring Cypress Rd, Tomball, TX 77377

To our valued customers of 2 Guys 1 Pit BBQ:

*We now have a drive thru, to go will continue running and we are delivering in a 10 mile radius with a $50 minimum. 


We wanted to provide and update everyone as to the actions we have proactively taken in response to the COVID-19 in our restaurant.


First and foremost, we are proud to say that we have an outstanding record with the Heath Department and take pride in keeping our establishment operating at the highest level of cleanliness, sanitation, and food safety. 


Our management team has been communicating and monitoring our cleaning protocols to ensure we are following them religiously in conjunction with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to create a safe environment for our employees and guests.  


In addition to our normal cleaning schedule, our teams will be focused on the following:

Continuous cleaning and sanitizing of our common areas, contact surfaces which include all tables, chairs and high chairs that our guests use. We have decided to completely remove the sauce bottles from tables, and also remove the toy box just to avoid spread of germs


We also encourage everyone to follow some simple tips from the CDC:

• Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

• If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth

• Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then immediately throw it away

• Avoid contact with people who are sick


We are committed to providing a safe, clean restaurant every day and you can be confident that your health and safety is our top priority. We thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you soon.


Thank you
