The Fort Bend Foodie 10/23/13
Galvan’s Sausage House
1924 Hwy. 90A (near Pitts Rd.)
Cuisine: Homemade Sausage, Brisket, Ribs and Boudin
Folks, this may be the best-kept secret in Fort Bend County. A very unassuming place tucked in a small, red, wood-framed building with no more than five tables in it. Across the dirt driveway is an outdoor covered area where firewood is sold and meats are smoked in barbecue pits. This is an obvious mom & pop business that, based on the steady stream of customers that come in to pick up orders or stay to eat, is popular among the locals.
There you will see Mr. Galvan who prepares & smokes the meats himself. His significant other takes your order. They specialize in sausage and boudin, but the brisket and ribs are very good as well. All of these are offered prepared and hot, or prepackaged and frozen adjacent to the counter if you wish to pick some up for the future.
You get your choice of all beef, beef & pork, or all pork sausage, spicy or mild. It has a finer texture than most sausage with a thinner skin than most, so it is easy to eat and cut. It was juicy and had an excellent flavor, as did the pork boudin. The brisket was excellent, although the pieces served were a bit fatty. It had a full-bodied smoke flavor without a bitter after-taste. And the sauce was very good also.
The sides were canned or, for the most part, not prepared in-house. The quality of the barbecue rates right up there with the best, but other rivals beat them out on the sides.
Overall, if I wanted good barbecue to take home, this would be my “go to” place and I like being able to get the boudin to go with it.
Overall Rating: 4 stars.
