Exchange Student gets educated on Texas BBQ

The road to great bbq starts at any point on the globe and leads you right here to the Great Coastal Texas BBQ Trail in Victoria, Texas.  The newest trail riders are the Bendusch Family pictured here from the state of Rhineland-Pfaltz in Germany.  Vanessa (third from the left) was an “Academic Year in America” (AYA) student for 2015-2016 school year and attended East High School. Pictured with her are (l to r) Andreas Hellwich (step-dad), Susanne (mom), Vanessa and Steven (brother).

Before Vanessa flew back home to Germany, her family came for a visit to the Crossroads Area. Her host mom, Lynne Hughs, took the gang on a culinary cruise of the BBQ trail, stopping at Uncle Mutts. They all agreed that it was “really good with lots of meat”. Vanessa told her family it was her favorite BBQ place in Victoria.

We are delighted to share this trail with the world. It is fast becoming a destination of its own within our lovely historic town.

Our current BBQ Trail promotion is FREEBIE FRIDAY—come in on Fridays with three receipts from any of the bbq joints on the Great Coastal Texas BBQ Trail to redeem for a t-shirt AND dip into the grab bag for a chance to win more prizes! Offer good through Labor Day.

Come soon and come often. We’ll save ya’ a plate.
