Great food; large servings

The smoked mesats are always good, regardless of which one you order., they have a variety of dishes, and all of them are reasonably priced. Will go there again for sure.

It's food but I will pass on this next time. The food was pretty bad. The only thing that taste okay is the bread and pinto beans. The place is dirty needs to be clean. Tables are filthy. If you can go somewhere else go.

This place is great all the way around, food, service, atmosphere, etc. This may be a BBQ restaurant but they have a little bit of everything.

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.

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!

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

I have lived in Tx City for 29 years and Grand Prize has always been awsome. The People behind the counter always are really friendly and have smile on their face.
