Smokey Tales BBQ

Like beachcombers searching for treasure, we’ve scoured South Padre Island from shore to shore for good barbecue, and we just may have discovered it. Smokey Tales’ hot links had a nice spicy punch and very little grease. The pulled pork and well-rendered fatty brisket were served moist with a nice hickory flavor. Luckily they didn’t need any of the sauce, which was served in a cold squeeze bottle, straight from the fridge. The smoked green beans sounded great, but they were mushy and reminded us of something out of a can. The house-made mac and cheese, on the other hand, was creamy and delicious.
