The Coastal Texas Barbecue Trail!
Barbecue in the Coastal Bend is about more than the amazing brisket and ribs – it’s about a true Texas experience. This region is host to larger-than-life stories about where Texas started and these barbecue joints carry that history in their buildings and their multi-generational ownership. On top of that, the nearby historical locations like the Presidio La Bahía and the Museum of the Coastal Bend tell a story about Texas that’s hundreds and hundreds of years old.
Experience the amazing brisket, sides and desserts at these Texas style barbecue destinations through a suggested itinerary. Learn the story behind each restaurant and meet the characters that make the Great Coastal Texas Barbecue Trail a genuine Texas experience!
Take a piece of the trail home with you and get a FREE Great Coastal Texas Barbecue Trail T-shirt! All you have to do is eat at three or more of the barbecue joints on the list, save your receipts and redeem them for a FREE trail t-shirt at the Explore Victoria Visitors Center at 700 N. Main, Ste. 101 Monday-Friday 8AM-5PM.
