We went for lunch. The place was busy. We ordered the Ruby sandwich, a chicken taco and a smoked turkey sandwich. All were good sized and delicious. There were lots of people there who looked like they were on a work lunch break so it must be popular. Staff were friendly and we are glad we went.

The sign out front gives it away- "It's about the sauce and the wood." Folks, that's NOT what it's about. It's about the meat, which should be cooked low-n-slow over wood coals. Granzin's brisket had no smoke flavor at all! ...must have been electric roasted. Bleah!

From the brisket to the tacos to the delicious potato salad. And I didn't even mention the BBQ sauce. Delicious!! Good for all types of visits. Family, friends or solo. You'll love it.

So I remember back when Granzin's was at the little brick bbq stand down the street closer to Walnut. I know it's kind of a New Braunfels institution. I was glad to see them move to fancier location several years ago. It's just kind of strange to me that New Braunfels doesn't have better bbq. We're a pretty big town,... More

Catering service was below standards. We ordered for 30 people on Tuesday for pick up on Thursday at 4:30pm. Called hours before pickup and staff was unsure of order but stated they located the initial order. Arrived right at 4:30pm and order had not even been started. Manager on duty would not talk to us about the status of order... More

Great BBQ. We got a tip from a local to go here and it didn't disappoint. We had plenty of food and leftovers which were gone the next day. Fast service and good for the kids.

My adult son and I ate at Granzin Bar-b-q last Saturday because we were in New Braunfels hanging. The BBQ was very good and reasonably priced. We both got the three meat plates and the only confusion was I ordered the Baby Back Pork Ribs and he ordered the Country Style Pork Ribs and when we got them they looked... More

Great for lunch. Ordered 1/2 lb of turkey to feed myself and 2 kids. Also great cookies and sweet tea! Quick service even at a busy time. Only downfall is minimal parking.

I have tried several other BBQ in NB and found this Brisket to be the BEST! The Brisket isn't fatty. Great smoke flavor. The pork is good. The ribs were good too, but not as good as the Brisket. I had the slaw and green beans as sides. Beans had chunks of ham in them. I like their sauce. Hands... More
