Soulman’s Barbeque – Texas style

It has taken me many years to warm up to barbecue. Tough and dry meat, overpowering “smoke” flavor, and too much salt has been my experience with joints proclaiming they have the “Original Barbeque”.

Joe has radar that finds these places he gets excited about while I drag my feet and only go along hoping for a Wendy’s or McDonalds after he has filled up on the lack luster stuff.

Rudy’s Barbeque in Pharr, Texas was the first place I fell in love with Texas Barbecue.

Joe found Soulman’s Barbeque and it is almost as good as Rudy’s and I highly recommend either place to fill up on fantastic hand dry rubbed, slow wood smoked meats.

We spent the night in Mesquite, Texas staying at the Quality Inn (formerly Comfort Inn). A short walk of about one city block is where we went for dinner at Soulman’s.

Joe had the two meat plate with beans and coleslaw while I had the Double Barreled Baked Potato.


You leave hungry from this place and it is your own dang fault. If you travel through Texas you might want to find at least one of these two, if not both, barbecue joints. You just might become a convert 😀
