Popular barbecue eateries plan Houston locations

A barbecue restaurant in Brenham, Texas, and a popular pop-up are planning to put down roots in Houston.

Brenham's Truth BBQ announced June 30 it will open its second restaurant inside the 610 Loop. However, the exact location and timeline for opening haven’t been disclosed yet.

Truth’s proprietor, 29-year-old Leonard Botello IV, is a third-generation restaurateur, according to a press release. He’s the youngest pitmaster ranked on Texas Monthly’s Top 10 Barbecue Joints in Texas, per the release.

Truth, which opened in 2015, specializes in Central Texas BBQ, authentic sides, and homemade multilayered cakes. Houston restaurateur Johnny Carrabba is an investor in Truth.
