Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 July 2017

Really good cuts of meat at a reasonable price. People are nice and friendly. Carl, the owner, is very knowledgeable and helpful . We are very lucky to have this place in our little out-of-the-way neighborhood. We were also impressed with the cleanliness and eye appeal of this country meat market. Friends tell us that their burgers and pulled pork sandwiches are really good also.

Excellent burgers from meat processed on site by hand. Also many other treats and meats available for sale. Fast, super friendly service. I highly recommend this place. Picnic tables around the side of you choose to stay to eat.

This place is in reality a meat market with some other goodies. They serve really good sandwiches and have lots of other snacks. Their meat market is excellent and they will hand-cut whatever you want. One of the better places in the Nueces Canyon.......

For the most part Camp Wood is not someplace most people will find, it is definitely off the beaten path. It is a one light town and that one light is not an actual stop light, but a flashing light. However, if you happen to find yourself in the area you must stop at the Nueces Country Smokehouse.

The place is a real deal smokehouse and purveyor of quality fresh meats, sausages and jerky. You can also tell that it serves the locals with a variety of things such as milk, bread etc. which is probably appreciated given there is not a real grocery store in the community.

Their hamburgers rank right up there with the best. Cooked to perfection on flat-grill using freshly ground beef they are so different from the many places that use preformed patties. This is my third time at the Smokehouse and I opted for the bleu burger which has blue cheese mixed in the ground beef. It also has crisp fried bacon slices and wonderfully fresh lettuce and tomato. The burgers are served with in-house made potato chips where are better than french fries any day of the week. My travel companions enjoyed the cheddar bacon burger and found it just as enjoyable.

You eat outside under a porch with ceiling fans which are appreciated given the south Texas heat. We were sad to hear that Red the house rooster was no longer around. On previous visits he was always a treat.

Before leaving I purchased their summer sausage for home. It is a great sausage with a robust flavor and tantalizing smoky aroma. Just one bite tells you that these guys know what they are doing.

If you happen to be in the area make sure to stop at the smokehouse. We actually drive over from the Frio River each year while on vacation just to enjoy a burger. It is worth it.
