Grand Prize is a great barbeque restaurant and is very popular with the locals, so sometimes is a little hard to find a table. It is a hot spot for workers from the local industries during lunch time especially and they also provide large takeout orders for work crews at the plants. The food is great, but take an appetite...

Service is fast with a great selection. Prices are fair for the amount of food you receive. My favorites are chopped baked potato, chicken and boudin and the chicken fajita baked potato (chicken fajita breast served with a baked spud. My only issue is that children's orders can't be to go. This is a hold up for us becasue I... More

I think the food is very good. I prefer my barbecue sauce cooked grilled onto the meat, but over all it is very good food.

All of the meat choices I've tried are so tender and yummy! I don't like a lot of sauce but it's really great even without adding sauce! The bread is jalapeno cheese and although, I'm not much of a bread eater, I love it! Beans and potato salad on the side! Yum!!

I have given this restaurant several tries and I just don't see the appeal in eating here. The prices have dropped but they are still too high for the generic "smoked" BBQ and steaks. The sauce is watery and mostly flavorless. It is a cafeteria style line to order and receive your food, and the workers are ALWAYS rude and... More

It's hard to say good BBQ when you get delicious BBQ at home but, Grand Prize has the best smoked turkey ever!! You can have it as a sandwhich or on a baked potato. I love it!! Sometimes really crowded at lunch but worth the wait

Good barbecue but nothing to get excited about. Service is fast. Choices are good. I won't go back. I can get better barbecue other places.

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.
