Hoegemeyer – pronounced Hay-guh-my-er – came about when considering names for our barbecue joint in Corpus Christi for two reasons: we’ve got strong German heritage & a need for something unique . So we decided to use the surname of our sweet aunt and uncle who now reside in Fredericksburg, Texas. Hoegemeyer’s opened its doors May 15th, 2013 in Corpus Christi’s industrial port area bringing more 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 (with only a brief interruption). 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.
