Review №1

Just moved to town from South Korea. Great food quick service friendly staff. I was missing some good ole catfish. I'll definitely give them my money again!!

Review №2

Took my Mother and she was not disappointed. It is the best BBQ she said she has had. I have pre ordered our Thanksgiving dinner from here. Everything is reasonably priced.. We can't wait to try Thanksgiving Dinner

Review №3

The portions size is like for orphans. Not even texas orphans. For hobbits orphans. But really, the place doesn't look like Texas hospitality place should. The only thing really make you feel welcoming - might be the parking spot.

Review №4

Friendly service!I hadn't been to a Grady's in years - this location reminded me of what I'd been missing! I had the chicken strips, fries, gravy, and Pepsi. The chicken strips were huge! I ate 1.5 strips, most of my fries, used all of the gravy ... left satisfied & with enough for an evening snack!Courteous staff, clean tables, good food & good prices!! Will definitely return!!

Review №5

Tender brisket, melt in your mouth pulled pork and juicy spicy smoked sausage what a great meal. If in San Antonio definitely stop by for some unforgettable tasting bbq with some great Texas twang.

Review №6

If you need consistently good quick BBQ. Go here. Not that sorry excuse for a BBQ chain - Bill Millers. They could do more good by increasing their Brisket portions however. Their spicy BBQ sauce is on point. Good Job Grady's ...keep it up!

Review №7

Food was nice and juicy. Nice staff and friendly. Not too crowded at time we went. Hand sanitizer available and distancing tables.

Review №8

Food is not bad but have had much better for the higher price. Not much can be said about service. You order at a counter then your name is called for you to pick up at the pickup window.

Review №9

The best catfish in town and an awesome staff. Keep up the good work.

Review №10

The Turkey was awesome - juicy and flavorful. I also loved the chicken my family tore through the rest of large family order and made fun me for suggesting that the smaller meal would be enough. If I had known I would have gotten even more bird (my faves)

Review №11

Stopped by today with the family for lunch. The food was awesome! The staff was great, thanks for the hospitality. Best cat fish I have ever had and the cream corn was delicious.

Review №12

Our first time in and it was not a disappointment. Shawn and Julian made us feel like we were regular customers they've known for years. We really appreciated the hospitality and the food was delicious. We had the little pig out and a half rack of ribs.

Review №13

Great customer service and the food was so good. We were tired and hungry after a long day at Sea World and this place certainly hit the spot. Very clean and social distancing in place.

Review №14

Every time we go we receive great food and great service!

Review №15


Review №16

Food was hot and fresh. Person who took my order in drive thru was friendly.

Review №17

Called in a order over the phone for pick up at I 35 location. They said it was $17. Pick it up and its $23 for 1lb of brisket. Get home its fat and only 9oz. No manger will answer the phone. Never again.

Review №18

I recommend this place to anyone visiting the San Antonio area really good customer service and their food was delicious

Review №19

Great people and everything taste so delicious.

Review №20

Most excellent! Great CF Steak, and the staff was awesome!

Review №21

Nice barbeque place with a good selection of meats a sides. I originally wanted a half rack of ribs but was informed they were out. I ended up getting the three meat plate (brisket, pulled pork, sausage) and fried pickles and mushrooms for my sides. My wife the two meat (sausage and chicken) with mac-n-cheese and mashed potatoes. Everything was good. My wife was disappointed the chicken came out as a whole wing on the bone vs shredded.

Review №22

Congratulations to the chef excellent Catfish, Fried Okra, Fried Mushrooms

Review №23

Service and food was good as expected.

Review №24

Had lunch with a couple of friends and we all really liked our plates. The chicken tenders were really large. My friend really liked his catfish and my other friend liked his brisket sandwich. We gobbled up the fries. All plates were flavorful. All plates were combos averaging 8 to 9 dollars. Order up front then your name is called to pick up your order.

Review №25

Great food! Great staff! Great place for lunch or dinner!

Review №26

Pretty good place overall, very good brisket and clean place. The one issue was I was with 2 friends and 1 never got called up for her food so just waited for a while. Not a huge deal or a deal breaker just was inconvenient.

Review №27

Cuz i ordered the food on the phone they said five minutes it would be ready and it ended taking like 30 minutes and then they didnt have what i wanted

Review №28

Seems like a great place when its on. Out of signature sides @11 am...half rack was dryed out @11. Place shows promise though so im going to give it another try later in the week.

Review №29

During this pandemic Grady's IH 35 is short staffed...but the two guys working are killing it! Great attitude and great morale! They definitely deserve a raise and a bonus! It was totally worth waiting.

Review №30

Excellent staff great food. Best BBQ chain in SA hands down!!!!

Review №31

Food is always good, had the catfish dinner, service was friendly, food was served fast and hot. The only negative thing I have to say is that the restaurant could use a good cleaning, no paper towels to dry your hands in the bathroom, tables were sticky, so was the floor.

Review №32

My favorite is the chicken tender mealthe whole staff is so friendly great feeling also a great place to eat lunch they understand you're on the lunch break .And get you your meal hot fresh and ready on time. Inside their extremely clean establishment very relaxing "the great experience keeps bringing me back...

Review №33

The service was fast and friendly and the food was good.

Review №34

The brisket and the pool pork is good.

Review №35

Friendly and reliable local BBQ restaurant chain.

Review №36

Some of the best bbq I've ever had! Brisket was tender and moist! French fries were cooked and seasoned just right! This will be a definite pit stop anytime I'm in the San. Antonio area!Great customer service as well!!

Review №37

The was great .I will go again. But .it was hot .inside .the restaurant.

Review №38

Good food, good time while there!!

Review №39

Veronica my Cashier was friendly and gave great customer service. Nice and clean restaurant and restroom. Food taste great!

Review №40

Friendly staff and quick service. Ordered the brisket plate. Brisket was hard and cold, would not recommend it.

Review №41

Corn wasn't good to me. Asked for lean meat and it came with a bunch of fat on it still. My daughter got double fries as her two side choices and it looked like one side portion. But she didn't want me to complain upfront, so I let it go. Overall, I did not feel like our meals were money well spent. Wont be going to this location again.

Review №42

Sausage Brisket sandwich is perfect: the meat, BBQ sauce, and the bun is moist like the chicken sandwich at Popeyes. I would go again. In fact, I have been again.

Review №43

Good service, however the food was EXTREMELY greasy. They was great puddling through the bun and dripping everywhere.

Review №44

Not only do they have great ribs and catfish but an amazing staff as well thank you!! For making me feel at home there.. you must go to experience it yourself..

Review №45

The food is great and so is the service, but the building needs renovations badly especially in the bathrooms!

Review №46

The staff here is always helpful and the food is amazing. Can't beat the prices and the quality.

Review №47

Grady's is, I think a newcomer, not sure how long they've been around. Texas is the premier place for barbecue, I think, so you got to bring it, and Grady's has the most delectable ribs. My companions over the years have enjoyed their barbecue, and one is in love with the fried Okra.I am in love with the fish and potato salad. A few months ago they received a not so nice rating, but I can attest that has been rectified.Everything was clean, fresh, and popping hot off the grill and out of the pot!!. They are back in the saddle and ridding tall and good.Did I say the fish is awesome . So are the sausage and brisket. Lean. Posted a pic, started eating and almost forgot , so plate looked more presentable before I started to have at it! Do enjoy, service is great, staff are friendly and welcoming as soon as you come through the door. , Enjoy!!!

Review №48

Good food, decent prices. Places is always empty during lunch... Makes it a Fast lunch Run.I do wonder about the health of the business due to the lack of customers. But if you really want the best of the best i suggest B&B SMOKE HOUSE...

Review №49

Great Chicken Fried Chicken. Service was great and the atmosphere was nice!! Family oriented and a clean dining experience!

Review №50

Delicious plus great customer service skills!

Review №51

I got the chicken and my friend got the chicken fried steak. It's was all fantastic. The portions were huge. I had enough for a second meal for lunch the day after. Check this place out for sure!

Review №52

Food was tasty and hot. Service was awesome. I was skeptical about trying Gradys. But i would definitely come back to this location

Review №53

Off the chain. Try the fish as well!

Review №54

Same great taste as always. I love their catfish it is always crispy and done to perfection. Their mac and cheese is really good too.

Review №55

Cancelled Doordash order without an explanation. Doordash takes 5-7 days to refund after a cancellation. Won't order from here again.

Review №56

Some great bar b que. Real laid-back place to watch a game or get togethers

Review №57

Like the fish and the employees go every Friday

Review №58

Decent Brisket for the price.

Review №59

Great food, device, and environment. Got the three meat brisket, chicken and sausage with a beer was $18 little bit more than I wanted to spend but worth it.

Review №60

I have been visiting Grady's for at least 30 years. The changes over the past 10 years have not all been on the positive side. On this most recent visit, the catfish lacked the crunchy, seasoned exterior I've grown accustomed to. There are plenty of bbq restaurants in San Antonio, but the fried catfish at Grady's has always been one of my favorites. I will visit again hoping this was just a one time thing.

Review №61

Food and service are very good. Restaurant was very clean with a customer friendly setup.

Review №62

Shawn was the most helpful guy I've ever known. He was so fast and professional, and patient with us. I will definately be back. This location has their Sh#@ together!!

Review №63

Good meat, decent sides. The creamed corn has little flavor. Brisket is either very tender and juicy or dry. Depending on the day, the food can be quite inconsistent.Edit:The management must have changed something, because the food is much more consistent. The brisket is tender and juicy, the sides are always hot, and the service is speedy. I've changed my rating from 3 to 5 stars. Great job, Grady's!!

Review №64

I always love going to gradys, the food is good and the customer service is awsome.

Review №65

Fish was very good .. Cooked fresh, brisket was served with nothing but fat but I took back up and asked for brisket with meat and they replaced it. Was very good ..

Review №66

Friendly staff, good atmosphere & GREAT FOOD can't beat it

Review №67

Thanks Gradys and Veronica for the awesome food and great service!

Review №68

Friendly staff, Veronica was my cashier gave speedy service. Great customer service and a welcoming smile. You need more employees like her. Food fresh hot and delicious.

Review №69

I haven't been here in a good while, I arrive here early today, hoping I get some fresh brisket, well now you probably already figured it out why I'm writing this. Well my brisket was dry and hard, pinto beans had know flavor same goes the potato salad. The only good was the onions. No I'm not mad just disappointed, I here so much of this place being great. Now I remember why haven't been back for so many here. Well this place is off my list, oh I'm not recommending this place, good luck to those who go there. Grady's step up to the plate.

Review №70

My Fiance bought two BBQ plates totally 40$ man the food was extremely nasty. I will never buy any food from Grady's BBQ again the meat was dry , not seasoned, Mac n cheese nasty and beans old and dry. SMH

Review №71

Ate here yesterday...the food is amazingly great. I'm not a fish fan but wanted a change. So I got cat fish and its delicious. This is probably the only place I'll order fish from. The tartar sauce was great as well. The food was freshly made and the fries were crispy and soft on the inside. I had the pleasure of meeting Veronica through drive through and she is a sweetheart. I couldnt make up my mind on desert. She suggested pach cobbler and she was so rite. It's great. No complaints at all. Thank you for a great experience!

Review №72

I deliver for these guys but if the service for customers entering this establishment is ANYTHING like the customer service I just received....I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU FIND SOME OTHER BBQ PLACE TO EAT... There are much better places not far from this one anyways....I s just literally ignored for 30min while waiting on an order I was l picking up for a customer so you might want to think twice shot even ordering from a delivery service from this PARTICULAR restaurant as is obvious they could care less about togo customers getting their food in a timely manner

Review №73

Had the best dining experience!!! The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming, Veronica went out of her way to make our dinner superb!!!! Nothing beats killer BBQ after swimming all day at Splashtown!!! Highly recommend for food family and fin!!!

Review №74

Food was made fresh, taste delicious and employees gave great customer service

Review №75

So underrated. Delicious BBQ food.

Review №76

Good food. Inexpensive. Very friendly service. It's a chain, but the fireplace and ambience did not feel generic. It's a casual, "fast food" feel BBQ place.

Review №77

Very good food and service

Review №78

10.27 “lunch special” for a small sandwich cold fries and a 30 minute wait in the drive thru. If I knew it would take that long I would have driven home and eaten for free. Not once did they check in or say it's almost ready just disappeared to front of store. Only reason I got my Food was because I honked my horn because I was about to ask for my money back since I used my whole lunch break. I was the first car in line so it wasn't like they were serving someone else.Now I remember why I stopped going here.Food not worth 10 dollars anyways but when it's not even convenient how does this place stay open.

Review №79

This place is awesome!! Great food! Great staff!! Especially Veronica!! Great stop before Spurs games for some great food. Been coming here for years and have never been disappointed.

Review №80

The brisket and fish is good also great customer service

Review №81

Gradys is really good everytime we go. The service is fast and friendly and the food is really good. They have the nicest people working there and cooks who know what they are doing. Great place to enjoy!

Review №82

Definitely not a go to place had a big group food was cold flavorless staff wasn't to friendly waited almost and hour for a side salad definitely needs to step it up random girl that works there just walked in for a few mins made order and left looked like she was ready to go to a club it was a mess not returning.wouldve gave a no stars if I could

Review №83

Bought a fish sandwich and the fries & hush puppies were cold. The fish was luke warm. Was given a cup for drink and the lid did not fit. I will not be going back. This was around 6:30 pm

Review №84

Grady's always excites us with their consistently super tender meats and tasty sides! Their strawberry lemonade ain't bad, either!

Review №85

Great service with a smile and the eats are delicious

Review №86

Great food!!!

Review №87

Was very disappointed, ribs were tough and tried to cover up with sauce. Staff was very nice but the best thing I ate was the mashed potatoes. Sorry not worth the money.

Review №88

I should of went to Bill Miller's never going there again took my family to the 35 and splash town location got there and ordered the little pig out that feeds 3 to 4 people chicken was dry they ran out of sausage and baked potatoes gave us more Turkey than brisket pulled pork look old not happy at all

Review №89

Enjoy coming. They recognize repeat customers. Good food.

Review №90

Came on vacation with the family and we visited this place as soon as we arrivd to SA. The first thing i noticed when i walked in was the floor was very sticky and the place seemed like it needed to be cleaned. The staff is awesome! Friendly and fantastic customer service!! The cashier took our order fast and we got our food in less than 5 min. When we sat down I noticed the tables were also sticky and kind of dirty. As i was eating my food I could smell the restroom from where i was sitting and i wasn't sitting near the restroom...The fries and potato salad was A+, but the brisket was dry and hard to chew for me. We all have our different opinions and this is mine. I will just stick to Rudy's bbq :) Oh yes and also i wish this place had regular sandwich bread!!

Review №91

Not too many people, hood fpod

Review №92

Great food, friendly staff, and food location.

Review №93

I placed my order at the drive-thru window for some smoked turkey, sausage, and fried mushrooms. The attendant that took my order was really nice but he needs some training on how to take an order through the drive-thru window. When I got home, my order was correct to include the extra barbecue sauce I requested.

Review №94

The Staff was very helpful and friendly, and the food was excellent, I had the one meat plate, Brisket, with cream corn, and potato salad, it was great. Their ice tea was good too. And great prices as well. I like going to the location on I-35....

Review №95

There's something about this place...oh I know...they have some damn good food!!! The catfish is the best in SATX and don't bother looking somewhere else for some "On-Point" BBQ. Fast service, HUGE portions, don't go anywhere else.

Review №96

I am sadly disappointed. The portion was very small for the amount I paid, I was expecting at least a bigger portion. I disliked the potato salad and the mac n cheese was dry and gummy. The brisket very good, but was very fatty. The sausage tasted frozen and the chicken was dry. I craved bbq alll day only to get this plate and not be satisfied I only ate it to not waste my money.

Review №97

The fried catfish platter was on point.

Review №98

Brisket tender but dry. The longer I chewed the bigger it got in my mouth. Large serving of meat on the sandwich is one good point. Quality lacking. Sandwich was on standard hamburger bun. It would be better seved on a french roll and the bread would not fall apart so easily. Price steep also. 9.99.

Review №99

Very cozy atmosphere and the food was amazing! They give you a good amount of food for the price.

Service was great , food not so good
