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.

a lady at a shop recommended queen's to us. we got there just before they closed and instead of rushing us out, the gal at the counter couldn't have been nicer. the food was very good and reasonably priced. my only regret is that i didn't like the beer i ordered by that was my fault.

Stopped by today after 10 years away. Now I remember why I hadn't come back. Food: Brisket was almost as tough as shoe leather, and tasted to me like roast beef that had been sprinkled with sauce. Potato salad was bland. Beans tasted like they were straight out of a can. Flat and boring. No 2-meat combo--only 3 meat--so I... More

We asked the locals where to find good Texas BBQ. They recommended Queens and they were right. We tried a variety of things and found everything tasty.

What an authentic southern BBQ restaurant. Queen herself came over to our table and took photos with us. This place has been in business for maybe 30 years, and it is just so fun. My BBQ ribs fell off the bone, and the creamed corn, green beans with ham, and giant one pound baked potato tasted like my Texas grandmother... More

Its' the best in Galveston. Great country music plays. You order up at a window. Place doesn't look like much, but is very comfortable and very Texas. Wish they served biscuits, but save the 2 slices of white bread for the seagulls!

We have tried this place twice now, thinking perhaps we ordered the wrong items. Nope, the meat is just average, the BBQ sauce is just about the same. Lots love it though, so perhaps we ordered the wrong things twice. The service is well, you go order it yourself. Its fairly fast. Not expensive.
