Leon's "World's Finest" In & Out B-B-Q House

55th and Broadway Galveston, TX 77551 | Galveston | 409-744-0070

Location Description:

There are eight tables at this converted roadside stand on Galveston Island. The electric-knife-cut brisket is sliced thick, so opt for a chopped sandwich. The ribs are succulent, and the sides are incredible. Stop in and grab some smoked meat to eat at the beach, but don't forget the green beans, turnip greens and Leon's stepped-up rice. The potato salad is among the best in East Texas.
