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

I had a spicy sausage BBQ sandwich, and it hit the spot! The staff was super-friendly. I was given Dr. Pepper refills, even though I was still good-to-go at the time. Any time I said "Thank You", I always received a "Thank YOU!" in return. I'd recommend it!

This is some of the best barbeque in Texas. The brisket was lean and full of flavor. All the other items were very good as well. The staff was very friendly and service was great. I will stop here again when in Corpus

I am not going to sit here and tell you this is the best BBQ you have ever tasted. I will tell you that I have eaten here 10 times over the last couple of years and been happy with it every time. The brisket and sausage are good. Not the best I have ever had but consistently good. Great... More

Stopped in on the way to the airport. Place was packed for lunch with locals, which was a great sign that the food was good. I was not disappointed in the BBQ and the portion was more than I could finish. Great service with a smile.

The food was good but this is not fantastic bbq. The brisket was too lean, I like a little fat on mine. They were out of ribs, which is what I really wanted to try.My son had the sausage and it was kind of dry and hard. The green beans and potato salad were good. The slices of bread are... More

Brisket, ribs, jalapeño sausage all tender and full of flavor! Cole slaw was damn good. Had no room for the green beans but didn't need them. Great service friendly smiling staff. Would definitely go back. Parking lot was full for lunch but there is additional parking across the street.

This was hands down the best barbecue I have ever tasted. Maybe there is better BBQ, but I have yet to taste it. The gentleman at the carving station was very friendly and generous with the BBQ and the price was very good. In fact, after we ate I went back and got a couple of pounds to take with... More

I was in South Texas on business trip and thought I'd try local BBQ. First comment: WOW! Big portions (I had the two meats & 3 sides option). Incredibly friendly service and delicious food. These folks know how to do BBQ! This restaurant offers 'old school' 70's decor and the authentic, really good food, value, quality service provided by helpful,... More
