The BBQ trailer in Corpus Christi (Called Two Bobs I think). It's on the corner of Holly and Betty Jean. Be there at 6pm cause they sellout daily. Brisket is insanely good and the chop beef sandwich is greatest chop beef sandwich in all the world.
Vietnam Restaurant in Corpus, Little spendy but awesome food!
Gristmill in Gruene, TX is a classic but always a treat. I can never tell if the food is that good or if the layout is just so cool that it makes me think the food is good. Maybe both?
Ronnies Ice House Barbeque, (says Ronnies Pit BBQ on the front of the building) in Johnson City is pretty good.
Besides good meat, I had some sauerkraut salad. It was pretty good, served cold.
Beware, they close at 3pm.
