“Definitely worth the drive!!”

Grand Prize Barbeque

Reviewed 3 May 2018

We were staying in Galveston on vacation and based on reviews decided to take the 30 min drive to Grand Prize BBQ. Despite a small mistake in driving directions, we eventually found this spot. So worth it!! My husband and I shared the 4 meat BBQ plate. We ordered the chopped steak, ribs, sausage and brisket.. along with jambalaya and waffle fries. We thought that we might need more food for some crazy reason so we also had the appetizer combo plate ( SO. MUCH. FOOD). Let me tell you, we didn't need to do that. We barely made it through the dinner plate, we couldn't finish our appetizer combo. The ribs are to die for, whatever rub they use is outstanding. The brisket and chopped beef were so juicy. We have had some BBQ plates at other restaurants in Galveston but this was certainly the best from what we had during our vacation there. And can't beat the value! If we ever get back to Galveston, we are certainly making the trip to Grand Prize BBQ.

Personal opinions ALWAYS vary when it comes to bbq in Texas....I love the food here. Everything is good. Food is always fresh and flavorful. above and beyond the obvious bbq favorites, these guys make very good steaks and we change it up with the stuffed baked potatoes from time to time. jalapeno bread is a nice flair that isnt common...their cobblers are good too. i really love the sausage and the sauce is great....you may have had better somewhere and some time but you won't be disappointed for sure. take out is great as well....i feed many of my customers that can't get away for lunch....service is always what i expect it should be

We stopped in for the Peach Cobbler. Much to our surprise they served Bar-B-Que with it!
As it turned out the Bar-B-Que was also a grand-slam home run!
The service personnel made it a triple-double experience.
