    Looks like they didn't even bother hitting up the "Golden Triangle"...

    I love Leon's (esp. the brisket), but when it comes to Queen's, there's two words that does it for me: Turkey. Cliffhanger.

    I hope readers will respond to this article with their recommendations. I've now lived in the county for over a year, and I'm still looking for a primo BBQ house. Leon's definitely has a lot going for it, but I'm surprised at such a high rating by Texas Monthly.

    My personal favorite BBQ in Galveston County isn't even from a BBQ house: it's the BBQ ribs at Sunflower Bakery on the Island. The sides are excellent, too. Unfortunately the ribs plates are specials, not on the daily menu.
