Growing up in Texas, being raised with BBQ as a corner stone of our traditions is quite common. I have also traveled across these United States for work and have already been open to trying different styles of BBQ. There are plenty of good ones and few great ones. Michael B's, to me, is classified under one of the great ones. Over the course of the past couple years, in picking my children from school, we passed the restaurant plenty times. Always smelling the hypnotic aroma of the smoking meat. Finally, we stopped in and had some lunch there one afternoon. It was then and still is the best BBQ in Corpus Christi. What Michael B's lacks in atmosphere or fancy decor like some other places, it more than makes up for with their friendly and family-esque approach. You immediately feel as if you are at your family reunion with all the people you care about. Let's not forget the quality and precision of the smoked meat. Smoking a brisket is almost an art form. When you have had one done right, you truly appreciate the type of cut of meat it is. The flavor, tenderness and overall quality cut is what separates Micheal B's from many others (including the most well known places in town). The chicken, ribs, sausage, chopped beef and even fried fish are every bit as good as the brisket. Excellent food and great people is what keep me and everyone I can tell going to Michael B's. Quit wasting your time trying to find good BBQ or settling for the high dollar but ok tasting food from the other. Go to Michael B's and know, that you are enjoying the best BBQ in South Texas.

I visit to dine here about 2 times per year and I would recommend it as good. It is local with a small town and family feel. The service has been good and the food is good. I would recommend any steak as the flavor is excellent being cooked in a wood pit. Another recommendation is the Chicken ala Cordon Bleu. The building has an older look to the floors, ceiling and decorations but it is clean and looks nice. I can't remember the menu selections offhand but they are plentiful with steak, combination plates, seafood, appetizers, lunch plates, sandwiches, and mexican dishes to name a few. I found their menu on the coastalbendmenuguide web site.
Siverado is located on Weber in the same parking lot as Safari Sports Bar. You cant miss it,right in the back. When you go you have to try the poor boy grande .It is an enormous sandwich! You will be hooked. I personally order mine without sausage. Because normally it comes piled on with both sausage and brisket not to mention the chopped brisket with barbecue sauce on the bottom! Mmmm :) Go hungry. You also have to try their turkey and dressing dinner on Sunday. Bring the family. Ya'll will love it.
