The Great Coastal Texas Barbecue Trail

A Taste of Texas BBQ

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

Five 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. Previously named one of Texas Monthly’s “50 Best BBQ Joints,” the Mumphord brothers cook the “old-fashioned way” using direct heat with mesquite and oak, giving the meat 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 Uncle Mutt’s Bar-B-Q Co. This family-owned joint dates back to the 1980s. Their meat is cooked exclusively with oak – slowly basted and smoked for hours while rotating for an amazing consistency! Try the Uncle Mutt’s Plate with ribs, sausage and chicken. Don’t forget the sides – Uncle Mutt’s offers more than a dozen options daily.


While in Victoria, you can find plenty to do – from kayaking the Guadalupe River or exploring the rich history to enjoying the diverse music scene. Check it all out on the BBQ trail itineraries. Learn more at CoastalTexasBBQ.com.
