Saw this place listed here on TripAdvisor, so went over for lunch. Only car on the lot :-( Inside was pretty torn up, but there were also some building materials, so perhaps soon, something new and wonderful? In short: Closed.

Simp's Kitchen had closed after the last hurricane that hit Galveston. They have reopened and below, you will find my review. They serve southern (soul) food and do a great job of it. My wife and I had never been to Galveston, so we decided to pass through and spend the night on the way to Houston for a baseball tournament. We came into Galveston for the first time by way of the ferry along the coast from the East. as we drove into town, It was late for lunch, so we were looking for a place to eat. We drove by Simp's and just had to come back. We are very happy we did. Wonderful food. Not a fancy place, but you can't get food this good in a place with linen napkins. The portions are huge, the sides are plentiful and we enjoyed every bite. We don't have much reason to eat supper, though.The food is served on a very large plate that normally seems it would work as a serving plate, not a portion for the small of appetite. My wife had chicken, mac and cheese, cabbage rice and gravy came with the meat choice. That plate had a half chicken on it! I had meatloaf, green beans, broccoli rice and the same rice and gravy that comes with the meat. Every bite was eaten. It was THAT good.
