Just visited yesterday on October 8th. Also bought their small cup of coleslaw and German style potato salad. Took all of it home for dinner. The ribs were smoked to perfection, Texas style. And, my wife and I know ribs! We judged BBQ for 15...years in the Hill Country of Central Texas nearly every weekend from March - October until we moved here to North Padre Island 4 years ago. The coleslaw was excellent and though I haven't had German style potato salad in decades, we really enjoyed it. There was enough ribs (1 lb), coleslaw and potato salad to feed both of us for dinner and have enough left over for a light meal the next day. Got out of there for less than $25 with a 20% tip. Can't beat that given the current economic crisis!More

Great atmosphere, check. Great service, check. Great food, check. Great bang for the buck, check. We entered hungry and left with full stomachs. This cafeteria-style smokehouse has a selection of meats and sides. It's no wonder they have won awards consistently.

We each had the rib (your choice of beef or pork and one specialty meat (your choice of brisket, chicken, sausage etc), this comes with your choice of two sides plus two cornbread muffins. The St Louis style pork ribs were excellent as well as...the beef ribs. We were full after that and took the brisket home! Relax atmosphere and good service. Plus a soft serve machine to help yourself after dinner, Free!More

We were looking for lunch on our day trip to Corpus Christie - and turned to trip advisor for a recommendation for BBQ. This establishment did not disappoint! We all had a whopper of a smoked pulled pork sandwich with all the sides. Everything was...delicious, reasonably priced, and all staff members were extremely helpful. Top Notch.More

The brisket was really good and so was the sauce. We loved the beans but the other sides need a bit of work!! The chocolate chip cookie and brownies were extremely dried out as if they had been sitting out. Would go back for the...meat but that’s all.More

If you haven't tried the "Beef Rib Dinner Plate" you have missed the best item Silverado has to offer! The Bar-B-Que time is, I understand, about 21 hours before it is served to the customers. This meat melts in your mouth. The large chunk of...beef slides off the bone and appears like a roast on the plate before you! I start at one side and eat every bit of the entire meat mass. This includes the rather gristly part next to the bone which is usually discarded. The roasting is so long that that part and any other usually unused parts is so tender and tasty, you realize it would be shameful and a waste to leave it on the plate. If it is too much, eat 1/2 of it and take the rest home in one of the cartons they have waiting for you and have it tomorrow! The home-style sides are varied daily and all nearly too good to be restaurant fare. Go, Go, Go!More

When in Texas, why not find some good bbq? This restaurant was recommended and the food was incredible. The brisket and pulled pork were suggested and they did not disappoint. The prices were very good and portions were big.
