LIP SMACKING GOOD!!

The barbecue brisket on homemade jalapeño cheese Texas toast is to die for! Stopped in for a bite after a day of fishing... Great ending to a great day!

From the BBQ to the pies Grand Prize does not disappoint. Generous servings and delicious flavor. The jalapeño bread is a star attraction.

I have been eating here for as long as they have been open.The food was great first couple of years then started going down hill,You never know if brisket will be tender tough fat or lean.Service is not very good either but they keep raising prices.

Love the BBQ stuffed baked potatoes. Easy order at the counter, fast and reasonable priced. The owner is always doing good things for the community.

Terrific barbecue and great service at a reasonable price, I don't care for their potato salad but there are plenty of other sides. My daughter eats her weekly, the staff recognize her and held her purse for her when she accidentally left it one day. I live in a different town, but we always meet interesting and friendly locals there.... More

We eat here every so often. I had the appetizer a couple of times and it was too greasy for my taste. I always order the barbecue baked potato. A couple of times the meat was very fatty but other than that pretty good and filling. The staff has always been friendly and the inside is usually clean.

We were told by one of the locals that this was a great place for BBQ. We were also told not to go there between 11 and 1 as they are extremely busy during those hours. We arrived about 2pm to the wonderful BBQ aroma as we opened the door! This is not a fancy place, but the food is... More

Whenever I am in Texas City, this is where I go for lunch. The minute you walk in the door, the aroma hits you. The barbecue baked potato is my favorite. I don't need dinner after I have one of those. I've never had a bad meal here.

We go to Grand Prize BBQ about once a month. They usually have specials advertised on their sign outside. They include rib ÊTR steaks, ribs, and chicken. My very favorite is their BBQ potatoes. You get your choice of meat and fixings. This is a more than adequate meal. They also serve fresh baked jalapeño bread dail. Prices are reasonable... More
