Texas Monthly Top 10 Barbecue Joint Truth BBQ Is Opening in the Loop

Hold on to your hats, barbecue fanatics. Truth BBQ, the popular and critically acclaimed Brenham-based barbecue spot from 29-year-old Houston native Leonard Botello IV, is opening a second location in Houston. The eatery, which is currently ranked No. 10 on Texas Monthly's Top 50 Barbecue Joints, announced today that it will bring its signature Central Texas barbecue inside the Loop this fall.

"Finding the perfect spot has been in the works for several months," Botella said via a press release, "and I am grateful to now have an opportunity to take Truth back to my hometown, which has been a goal of mine for several years."
