Corpus Christi's Best Barbecue JointHoegemeyer – 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.

  • Bushbullit Live

    Jul 2014
    - 07:00 PM -

    Hoegemeyer’s Barbeque will be hosting Bushbullit Friday July 25th from 7:00pm until midnight.  Come on down, drink a cold one and enjoy some live music in downtown Corpus Christi.

    BUSHBULLIT is a nickname for Armadillo, which has been a symbol for Texas music for years. It brings back memories of the Armadillo Headquarters in Austin, Texas in the early 70′s. Formed in 1976, BUSHBULLIT first performed at Inza’s Lonesome Coyote Saloon, in Corpus Christi, Texas. In the early 70′s, 0.B. Gonzalez, lead guitarist and vocalist, found early success in a band called Apple which recorded and produced two singles which were regional hits in Houston, San Antonio & South Texas. Bushbullit’s music is made by O.B., Eddie Saenz on the bass and Antone Perez on drums.

    Their nightly repertoire includes tributes to Southern Rock Bands like ZZ Top, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Fabulous T-Birds, Johnny Winter, Freddie King, Willie Dixon, Delbert McClinton, Allman Bros., Marshall Tucker and Lynyrd Skynrd. Other Classic rock includes the music of Jimi Hendrix, Cream, George Thorogood, Creedence, Bob Seger, “Jim and Van Morrison.” BUSHBULLIT continues a legacy and tradition started long ago. This synergistic alliance of Texas Rock and Blues musicians collectively represents the dynamic make up and sensational sounds of the South Texas’ best kept secret, BUSHBULLIT. This coalition of musicians proved to be a melding of talent that elevated BUSHBULLIT into a league of their own.

    For years BUSHBULLIT has continued to make their presence known on the South Texas music scene playing local venues such as Executive Surf Club, Cassidys Irish Pub, The Mug Room, The 19th Hole in Beeville, The Lighthouse in Padre Island, The Havana Club, San Patricio Rattle Snake Races, Bayfest, Brewster’s Street Icehouse, Concrete Street. They have their own brand of original Texas Rock and Roll as they go “Slidin’ Thru Texas.” In most places they play classic rock & blues.

     The history and legacy of Bushbullit starts in 1976 with Kerry Patton, Vic Godines and O.B. On guitar/vocals. Later that year “Lucky” Lee Holcolm on drums and George Crawford on fiddle/guitar joined Kerry and O.B. Many years later in 1988

    O.B. Relaunched BUSHBULLIT with Walter Presley and Billy Cartier and played together for 13 years. After several band member changes the winds of change placed O.B. Gonzalez, Doc DeAlcala and Eddie Saenz together. David “Doc” DeAlcala and O.B  played the Cannery club house gig in Corpus Christi in the late 1980′s, an unexpected event caused the passing of David “Doc” Dealcala suddenly in April 2005. In June 2005, Mike Collins joined the band. Most recently Mike Collins left the band and Antone Perez joined the band on drums and vocals. The band continues to dish out original music as well as variety of classic rock tunes.
