Classic American BBQ with a Texas Twist

Texas is known for its barbecue. Named one of the “10 Great American Food Trail Road Trips” by Frommer’s Travel Guide, The Great Coastal Texas Barbecue Trail in Victoria, Texas features some of the best barbecue in the state. If you’re looking for true Texas barbecue, this trail is for you.

The Trail

Eight locally-owned barbecue joints make up the Coastal Texas BBQ Trail. You’ll find the barbecue as varied as the pit masters who create it. Whether it’s the cooking style, the unique sides, or homemade desserts, these folks put their heart and soul into making your experience unforgettable.

One of the most popular spots with locals is KB’s BBQ. The guys at KB’s cook their brisket slowly over mesquite with a special spice, creating a deep smoke flavor. A few fan favorites are the loaded smoked chicken avocado, brisket enchiladas, and brisket-topped mesquite smoked burgers!

Mumphord’s Place is another BBQ trail favorite. Already named one of Texas Monthly’s “50 Best BBQ Joints,” The Mumphord brother’s cook the “old-fashioned way” using direct heat with mesquite and oak, giving it a milder smoke flavor. The brisket and sausage are some of the best, but for a special treat stop by on Pork Chop Wednesday.

Another top barbecue spot is Limon’s BBQ. Cooked slowly on rotisserie pits, Limon’s meat is smoked with a mix of mesquite, oak, and pecan woods. The flavors really come through in their brisket and pork baby-back ribs. Although Limon’s is known for their German potato salad, the menu has a Texas flare with Spanish rice and pinto beans.
