Texlahoma BBQ recently held a ribbon cutting with the Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce to celebrate their grand opening at 2080 E 2nd St.
Founded by native Texans in 2015 (Brian is from Houston and Jennifer is from Amarillo) who transferred to Louisiana and then Oklahoma while working in the oil and gas industry, TexLaHoma BBQ was born. The couple started catering BBQ out of their home to make ends meet during an ebb in the energy field, eventually buying an existing barbecue joint from a widow after her husband passed, renovating it and building a new smokehouse. Seeing a gap in the market for Texas- style barbecue, the couple added the spice of Louisiana and opened with one smoker serving only sandwiches. Since then, Texlahoma has been through six smokers and has added a car hauler converted into a food truck trailer. With their first location open in Edmond at 121 E Waterloo, and now their second location off Second Street.
