smokin’ the
good stuff

fresh daily × while it lasts × from the heart


Located in a 90 year old warehouse in Corpus Christi’s port-industrial district, Hoegemeyer’s simple methods bring south Texas Mesquite barbeque to the masses.


Hoegemeyer (pronounced Hay-guh-my-er) opened its doors May 15th, 2013 in Corpus Christi’s industrial port area bringing the best barbecue to downtown. Our building has been around since at least the late 1920s (as evident through some of Doc McGregor’s aerial photos.) At the time it was a transfer house from rail-to-road. We’re big on family and fixin’ delicious food. We smoke barbecue and cook fresh every day and go until we’re sold out. We thank you for stopping in and genuinely appreciate your business.

David Page, pit master and owner, has been in the restaurant business since high school. In 2008 he sold the last restaurant he ran and thought he was done.  After a few years of cooking on the sidelines, he got the itch to open another restaurant. When thinking of a location, he considered a few different places, but just kept thinking about putting barbecue in downtown Corpus Christi. We have owned the barn for almost twenty years and are finding out new things about it’s heritage all the time.

This South Texas barbecue comes from the heart – we love to serve good food and give people a good time.  We cook fresh every day and when we run out, we’re out. Lunch is served daily Monday through Friday, from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. – we’re available for special events, mixers, catering, parties, fundraisers and more after hours and on the weekends. We’re family, and want you to be a part of ours.

catering options

Part of growing up in Corpus Christi is learning to live that laid-back lifestyle - keeping it low and slow (just like smokin’ our brisket). After opening our second location in Fredericksburg, we’ve come to realize that Hill Country living isn’t all that different. We welcome any size catering request, from a working office lunch for 10 people to meat cut on site for 500. Check out your barbeque catering options below - if nothing fits what you need, call us!


office packs

We realized that making your job easier makes everyone’s jobs easier. We came up with our Office Lunch Packs. Each pack is designed around feeding 10 people and includes everything you need - from food & drink to paper goods. You just pick which meat combo, your sides, and whether you want your tea sweet, unsweet, or both.

in-house parties

This is what we love doing; welcoming others into our business and treating them like family while serving food from the heart. Both our Corpus Christi and Fredericksburg barbeque locations are similar in their rusic ambiance, each with their own twist.

With low minimums, straight forward pricing, and no “rental fee” needed to throw most shindigs (or gatherings or hootenannies), we want to share our space and food with you. Birthday parties, baby showers, wedding receptions, company meetings, client appreciation, weddings showers, rehearsal dinners, and more have been celebrated with us.

off site catering

Although bringing our delicious barbeque to you involves some logistics to keep everything fresh, tasty, and temperature controlled, we’ve covered events from 50 to 500 in some fairly demanding conditions. Whether serving freshly sliced brisket sammiches on your back patio for 25 to serving brisket & sausage cut on site with two sides, cobbler and tea to 500 workers at a topping off event 7 stories in the air, we’ve been there and done that.

Because each situation is different, we have to quote off-site catering per event.
