The food is delicious and the venue has great ambiance. You step up to the inside window to place your order and sit at inside picnic tables to enjoy.

Queen's is a noteworthy stop for lunch or dinner. The brisket is tender, and they sliced it thin without any fat as requested. My husband knows great Barbeque since he is from South Carolina. He thinks Queen's is a great meal, complete with unusual side dishes, country music playing, and autographed pictures of famous Country Music Artists! Texans take their... More

Acknowledging that "the best barbecue" is a highly subjective topic, I would rate Queen's as one of the best I've had in quite awhile. The prices are very reasonable and all of the meats that I tried were delicious. The location is, like so many other restaurants, in a corner building not too far from the seawall. It's nothing fancy... More

Some of the best barbecue I've ever had. The cliffhanger sandwich is Amazing and the service was great. We were vacationing there and unsure of what to order and they gave us several sample sides to try their items! Homemade desserts were great as well. Well worth the trip!

We stopped at two other bbq places before landing here. What a gem! We had 7 people in our group. The staff was knowledgeable and made excellent suggestions! Everyone was stuffed and happy. I would recommend to out of towners.

Went to Queen's to grab a couple of cliffhangers... And as always they were delicious. Cliffhangers and stuffed potatoes are the best. Keep up the good work!

Queen's is in my opinion one of the best three BBQ places on the Island (the other two being Leon's and Leo's). The dish that I think sets Queens apart is the BBQ baked potato. Either bring a big appetite or share it with a friend. Prices are great as well.

There is limited parking at this location. If you park in the residential 2 hour parking they will give you a parking pass inside. We all got the loaded bbq potatoes. They were fair with the meats and toppings but they had grease coming thru the bottom of the tray. My only major complint was they do not have bbq... More

Went to Queen's barbecue on our holidays in Galveston. It is just off the sea wall. There is free parking. I had the rib sandwich and piña cola cake. The ribs were very smokey and a little heat and the meat just fell off the bone. The piña cola cake was very rich and delicious. My husband had the poor... More

I've traveled to Galveston twice on business in the last 7 years and both time have enjoyed the lunch special at Queen's. Wouldn't miss an opportunity to go again.
