This is definitely a great place to go to if you're on Padre Island. I was very hungry from a long walk on the beach and the wonderful smell reeled me into this place. Best brisket I've had in a very long time. Service is good, friendly staff and the restaurant was clean and welcoming. I will be stopping by... More

Super place for BBQ and grill food. Many great items on the menu make it difficult to choose, although you will not be disappointed with any selection. I has the St Louis ribs and they were fall off the bone wonderful! Great decor, love the old pictures.

We arrived after lunchtime to grab some burgers and try a lot of the famous specialties like gator etc. We took the bison burger, fried gator nuggets and a beef burger with mushrooms and Swiss cheese. Change of sides was no issue and service was great. The lemonade was also worth the miles there, so in total we didn't regret... More

We stopped here for takeout. I got the 2 meat plate of brisket and turkey with potato salad and beans. The turkey was fantastic! Brisket was very good also but could have been trimmed a little better. Beans were good but was disappointed in the potato salad. Overall 4 stars. I would return when I'm down here again.

The aroma of smoking meat is fantastic upon walking in. The home-cooked meats and sides are absolutely delicious. Had the brisket sandwich and green beans.

We stopped at the donut shop at the end of this strip mall...which by the way were the BEST donuts we've ever had...they also have breakfast sandwiches...everything homemade. Now to the Mesquite BBQ & Grill...we met the owner in the donut shop. We told him we could come there that evening for dinner. Wow, what a great menu. We ordered... More

Small family operated restaurant with friendly staff and good service. They offer a variety of meats including buffalo, elk, antelope, as well as beef hamburgers. The BBQ beef brisket was very good. Casual atmosphere and friendly clientele. Order at the counter and food will be brought to your table.
