“Best BBQ on the planet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

I've been all over the country and I've NEVER had barbecue this good! Silverado knows what's up and I'm sad I don't like in corpus anymore.
It's a tad pricy but you get great portions, tasty food, awesome service, and it's very clean! I recommend the brisket and ribs!!

“A Super Smokehouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

We were looking for a great Smoke House / Pit BBQ whilst in Corpus Christi and we happened upon Silverados. Not quite what we expected as it was a canteen style servery. BUT, that aside, what great food at reasonable prices. If you like Beef Rib, then the ones I had (one massive one, actually) was superb. Sadly my eyes were bigger than my belly and I went for some Pork ribs as well..........No way could i fit more than a mouthful in...! The restaurant isn't a sit down and be served restaurant, but don't let that put you off. The food is great and there are a couple of servers in the background that check on you regularly. Now, on to the servers....All a great bunch, but if you do go on our recommendation, and you see John, say hi from us. A thoroughly nice chap who makes your meal a special one.

“Really good BBQ in Corpus Christi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

Referred by an antique shop owner, or we never would have found this place, kind of back from the road. Excellent BBQ, carved in front of you,served cafeteria style. Great selection of sides, and to top it off, a free ice cream cone.

“BBQ Just doesn't get any better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Today (Wed., Mar 5), my wife and I visited the Silverado SmokeHouse. This was our third visit over the past several years. As I've indicated in previous reviews, this is a definite stop in our visits to Corpus Christi and this visit was perhaps the best of our three.

I had a pork rib/brisket combo plate with slaw and potato salad. The ribs were very juicy and the meat extremely tender. And there was a lot of meat on those ribs. The brisket was very juicy and so tender that it was hard to pick up with the fork - it kept breaking apart. That was some of the best ribs and beef, I've ever had. And the slaw was fantastic as was the potato salad.

My wife had the pork ribs with spinach and sweet potatoes. She said the spinach was wonderful, in fact she wished she had gone back for a second helping. Likewise, she loved the sweet potatoes.

I was very tempted to get their beef ribs. The size of the meat on the ribs reminded me of the huge ribs offered by Coopers BBQ in Llano, TX.

The staff was extremely pleasant and stood ready to remove any and all dishes from our table as we finished with them and to refill our glasses of tea. However, we did not feel rushed to leave.

The prices were very reasonable given the high quality of the food. I've paid more for less in other establishments. I had no regrets in paying for our food today.

If you love BBQ, don't pass up on visiting the Silverado SmokeHouse.

I have entered its location into my GPS and we will definitely revisit there upon our return to Corpus Christi.

“RIBS!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

Tried this based on TA reviews and was not disappointed. Pork rib meat fell off the bone. Sides were hot and tasty. Sauce a little sweet for my taste. Will go back!
