The selection of jerky is good, but take more than you think because you'll run out fast! A half pound of beef jerky for our family of four didn't survive the four hour drive we had ahead of us. 😄

My wife and son split The Deluxe BBQ plate with Sausage, Sliced Brisket and Pork Ribs and three side it was almost too much for only $10.95. The best side they had was the Rice Salad, which was outstanding. I ordered The Brisket Sandwich and added Sausage to it. It was wonderful. I also had English Pea Salad and Black... More

We ordered lunch platter and lunch rib. Both are beyond our expectations, especially the sausage. One of the hidden secrets on interstate hwy 59.

BBQ sandwich is large! Very tasty, you can add your own condiments. Banana pudding always a delight.

As you may know, I like BBQ. Mikeska is good ole Texas BBQ. Nothing fancy, but plentiful and enjoyable. I had the pork and sausage - both were very good. Don't waste your time on fast food - this place is right off the highway. I bought some of the chocolate chip cookies to go - great with milk! Look... More

Stopped in for lunch on our way to Corpus, got there just in time (11:30). This is a self service establishment, counter order. Plenty of side dishes and appear to be "homemade", tried the mustard potato salad-way too much mustard & pimento along with sweet relish, almost soupy! The sliced beef/brisket sandwich I had was TOUGH and chewy with little... More

This place has grown slowly over the years and getting bigger. The quality and taste is outstanding. The selection is great and getting more plentiful. Parking is ok and the place is very clean. Only negatives are the staff are starting to be a little lazy and not as friendly as they used to be. The food got them this... More

We stopped for lunch and bought a sliced beef sandwich and a brisket meat stuffed potato. It did not seem like there was very much meat on my husband's sandwich or my potato. We thought the meat had no flavor and the BarBQ sauce had too much vinegar in it. They have a salad bar that is included but we... More

The sausage is phenomenal here and the ribs are decent but realistically everything else is average at best or even worse (the beef which is tri tips rather than brisket). Growing up here I always thought it was the best but after having went to many other barbecue places across Texas there is just no possible way it can compete... More
