About Us

The Bar-B-Q Man Restaurant began serving Texas-Style Bar-B-Q in 1977 under the guidance of Malcolm DeShields Sr.  Through the years our 2.4 acre facility has grown to include a full service restaurant, bar, a party area, and beautiful Cantina patio with lots of shade trees and picnic tables.


All food is prepared on-premise and is supervised by the DeShields family in the same manner it was when food service first began in 1977.

For lunch or dinner, Monday through Friday, the Bar-B-Q Man Restaurant offers a large assortment of our own freshly smoked and barbequed meats.

The catering offered by the Bar-B-Q Man is capable of delivering a full meal for from 2 to almost 2,000 people, almost anywhere in South Texas

Our on-premise catering can usually be accommodated with as little as 12 hours notice (subject to availability of facilities and staff).  Visit our Catering page for more information.

And…don’t forget our takeout To-Go Menu great for office, family and other functions.
