Glad someone told me to go to the Barbeque place with the big pink pig out front. Coming from South Carolina, it did not dawn on me that pig would not be the main thing on the menu. Made it easy to make sure I was at the right place. Big establishment, but not many cars in the lot the... More

We hosted a family reunion at this venue. We used the restaurant's Patio Cantina. The owners were super helpful in the planning process - no hassle. The process ran very smoothly. The day of the event was flawless. The staff members tending to the event were extremely helpful. They were there for anything I needed. The food was delicious. We... More

Coming from KC, I have high standards for BBQ. This is one of the best I've tried, and beats many of the big names in KC. The ribs are melt in your mouth and doesn't have as an overpowering smell as the ones in KC. The sauce is flavorful and tasty! Iced tea was great and so was the service.... More

It was a Monday night and I was the only customer at 6:00 PM. That said they were ready to feed an army if needed. I went with the 2 meat plate (ribs & sausage). Both were meaty with a rich flavor. Sides of Potato Salad and Cole Slaw were excellent as well. I suggest you have them give you... More

Being from NC we like our pork bbq. Most brisket to me in my past visits to Texas has been on the dry side. Not at the BBQ Man! Sausage and ribs were very good also. BBQ Man Restaurant isn't much to look at from the outside. Almost doesn't look like a restaurant with the high fence surrounding it. They... More

This place was pretty cool, very dive like. It is dark with wood paneling and you order cafeteria style. The workers are very efficient, and they got a lot of people through at a very busy lunch hour. We knew this was a good place when we saw all the locals walk in. The beef brisket sandwich was great, the... More

Excellent Texas Bar-B-Q. This is real Bar-B-Q. This is well known in Corpus and a favorite of the locals. A must while visiting Corpus. Excellent smoke ring on the beef and the ribs are also wonderful.
