The Great Coastal Texas Barbecue Trail Highlights New BBQ Itineraries
Trail features seven of the best-reviewed barbecue joints in Texas with historically significant museums.
Victoria, TX: Explore Victoria announced the launch of the Great Coastal Texas Barbecue Trail – the trail makes it easy for anyone to find and try some of the best Texas barbecue while experiencing more than just the meat.
“Barbecue in the Coastal Bend is about more than the amazing brisket and ribs – it’s about a true Texas experience,” said Anthony Cordo, Director of Explore Victoria. “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.”
“The barbecue joints here are our secret; they represent some of the best-rated barbecue on review sites like Google, Yelp and TripAdvisor.” Four of the restaurants are rated as good as or better than the golden standards in Lockhart and Austin.
Stops on the barbecue trail include: Aunt Jo’s BBQ, KB’s BBQ, McMillan’s Bar-B-Q, Mumphord’s Place, Quality Packers Smokehouse, The Fire Pit, Uncle Mutt’s Bar-B-Que, the Presido La Bahía and the Museum of the Coastal Bend.
The Great Coastal Texas Barbecue Trail is a fun, inexpensive retreat to get immersed in Texas’ food history. People who go to at least three of the seven barbecue joints can redeem their receipts for a free Great Coastal Texas Barbecue Trail t-shirt at the Explore Victoria Visitor Center. The trail starts online at CoastalTexasBarbecue.com.
