“Texas Pride Barbecue has always been a destination for locals, but we felt that there was an opportunity to share authentic Texas food and music with a wider audience this summer. The region hosts millions of visitors from all over the world and we feel that ‘The Texas Experience’ will give everyone a chance to feel the pride of being Texan,” stated Tony Talanco, owner of Texas Pride Barbecue. “We promise that our complex, with a playground, antique shop, tattoo studio and gaming area will have something for everyone,” concluded Talanco.
Texas Pride Barbecue has been a longtime favorite of locals and visitors but was placed in the spotlight after Guy Fieri from the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives” showcased the restaurant. The restaurant features traditional slow cooked mesquite barbecue, sides and must-have desserts. Additionally, the facility has hosted numerous Grammy-award winning musicians, local entertainers, fundraisers and several events including motorcycle rallies.
