“Worth the trip”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

After re-locating to Texas I have tried many BBQ places and Leon's is a Rock Star! The brisket is the best outside of Lockport, ya know what I'm sayin'! The service is what you expect at a BBQ. The place is clean and well lighted. But the food is as good as BBQ can get and worth the trip to Galveston.

“Friendly but slow service the night we went”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Very friendly and laid back. BBQ was on the sweet side, sides are standard fare. We are gluten free for health reasons, so most things on the menu were out for us. I don't think we'd return, but that is more due to the limited selection for us.

“Great tasting BBQ”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Had a large group of hungry teens. Great food and awesome service. Leon and his family made our group feel like special guests.

They had our table ready when we arrived. Fast service, large servings and awesome BBQ.

“I'm Hungry Just Thinking About It!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I think Leon's is the best BBQ on the island! Dang it's good. I've had the ribs and brisket and both were excellent. The portions are large enough that you might take some home with you. The brisket has a nice salt and pepper bark and the sauce has a nice little kick to it. No complaints from me.
