Good Smoke. Late night find. Ribs were very good, nice smoke ring, meaty, falling off the bones (love pigs on a stick). Burnt ends were nice, tender well cooked. Brisket was very tender with a nice smoky richness. I think they were using mesquite, but it was good. They said they smoked the brisket for 20 hours. A return trip... More

You can always tell a good place by how many construction trucks are parked out front, and this place was full of them. The food was really great, tender, very tasty beef. The BBQ sauce is very good! Not a p[lace to be missed!

Ribs a little underdone, brisket a little over done, cole slaw watery, beans could use more zip. Tea was good. With as many choices as there are in Corpus, try another.

Really good BBQ and fast. If you're in the area and looking for a quick meal, this is hard to beat. The line moves quick and the brisket is very good. Got the 3 meat with jalapeño sausage, brisket and ribs. Ribs were small and kind of dry but brisket and sausage were top notch. Two sides and bread make... More

What great BBQ. LOTS of meat options, and all are great. Ribs, and brisket are wonderful - as is the chicken. Sauce is well seasoned, and a great complement to the fare. Side options of potato salad and cole slaw are good. Great prices and friendly service make this place a hit. Lots of seating and good parking.

The bbq here is amazingly yumm, smoke flavor is mild and not over powering just right amount of flavor. This bbq joint isn't afraid to cut the brisket/sausage you get a healthy serving. I get the "jimmy storm" special, it has a little bit of everything except chicken. That long slab/slice of burnt marble end is the best part. That's... More

This is what I call a Mom and Pop, old school BBQ Joint. When I travel, I always try to find the true local flavors, and this place had what I was looking for. My son and I ate here for lunch, and it was quick but very, very, very good! It's set up similar to a buffet, but you... More

The best bar-b-que ever! I had the brisket and spicy sausage. Delicious. My mom had the ribs and my uncle had the chicken.

This is a fun place. Stopped here for business lunch. You walk up and place your order and they cut your meat and assemble it. You go down the line and get any sides you want and your soda/drink. I got the brisket sandwich with pinto beans. He was excellent. Brisket was very tender and tasty. Quick lunch and a... More

I flew into Corpus Christi tonight and was hungry enough to go right to Google Maps to find somewhere close by to eat. This is not the best part of town, but the reviews for The Bar-B-Q Man were so good, that I thought I'd take the very short drive to try it out. When I got to the restaurant... More
