Corpus Christi

Postby azcharlie » Tue Oct 20, 2015 11:12 pm

Hi my name is Charlie and I'm new here so I hope this is the right place to post a question.

I will be coming to Corpus Christi next week for 3 days to visit my daughter, granddaughter and my 2 great grandkids. I came to visit last year and my son-in-law took us out for some Q. I don't remember the name of place but it was not very good. So this year I would like to take them out to get some good BBQ. I would to avoid the big chain places and find a nice local joint.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Google "Corpus Christi Best BBQ" and go to the link to Trip Advisor. I don't go out for BBQ very often so can't comment on the list. Howard's BBQ used to cater client lunches where I worked and I thought they were pretty good. Been to their restaurant one time and it was good. Been to a couple others with a dining out group that I didn't care for.

Couple other non-Q restaurants you may want to try:

Ginger Cafe on Staples - Mediterranean food. Get the lamb shank - no knife needed
Niko's steak house - Medium priced steak house that do most things well

We were in Corpus with friends from Sweden. We went to Rudy's. We had pulled pork, turkey, and sausage. They were all pretty good. 8/10.

I checked on Cotton's and some others it seems that most are only open for lunch and close at 3:00 PM. But I think I may have found a place that may fit the bill. It's called Bar B-Q man. Has any one heard of this place or had any experience with them?

Well I just got back from Corpus Christi. I had a great time even got to go trick and treating with my great grand kids. What a blast.

I arrived there on Thursday evening and thought I would drive straight over to get some BBQ. This place is a little hard to find even my GPS couldn't find it at first. But once I got there it was well worth it. The place is clean and has a welcoming feel to it. The owner (pit master) serves up the meat right in front of you. I had brisket and pork ribs with potato salad and coleslaw. The meat had a really good smoke flavor and a nice deep smoke ring. The ribs were tender but not fall off the bone just the way I like them. the sauce was served on the side. After I ate the owner took me in the back and gave me a tour of his pits. All in all a great experience.

My recommendation: If your in Corpus stop by and check them out.

Nice - they advertise in our church bulletin. I'll have to check them out.
