A Taste of Texas

A Taste of Texas was founded in 2017 with a passion for amazing food and service. Humbly starting as a one man operation, A Taste of Texas has expanded to include family and friends who believe in the quality and success that we bring to our guests. Texas BBQ takes time and our goal is to provide the truest Texas BBQ experience with a commitment of excellence for any occasion. From prep to table our BBQ takes a minimum of 24 hours. We believe this time is necessary to produce the highest quality food and service. We pride ourselves in our creative and wide ranging creations. Our sandwiches, for instance, are quickly becoming a destination listing on all food critics and BBQ bloggers bucket lists. Through word of mouth, a lot of hard work, and a commitment to producing the best BBQ for any occasion, we believe that A Taste of Texas will become the place your neighbors have been talking about as the most beloved restaurant/food truck/caterer in all of Virginia. Come taste the best that Texas has to offer!

"Amazing pulled pork. So smokey and tender. Delicious original sauces. I can't keep this stuff in my house. I bring home two pounds and it's gone.!"

"Just wanted to take a moment to shout out A Taste of Texas for their Thanksgiving Meal! First of all...from my very first message to this restaurant they were so engaged and quick to respond (on a day they were actually closed at that mind you)...I felt like I was chatting with an old friend. I had never tried this restaurant so I knew I was taking a chance but the customer service alone won me over. After I paid, established a pick up time (ON THANKSGIVING AND HOT which was a HUGE PLUS for me), the owner Tim messaged me back and said he noticed I was a pastor and did I know of anyone in need. Not only THAT but this restaurant has agreed to help me with a campaign I'm doing in December to help single moms. These are my kind of people (and I can vouch they DID INDEED bless someone that I know with a meal♡). Now on to the food....

My husband and I picked up at our time...and they were so organized and ready! They had staff walk our food out to the car and honestly guys...you can just tell these are GOOD PEOPLE! My family enjoyed their meal (ummm, I REALLY loved the mac and cheese, the mashed potatoes were real with tons of butter lol, the collards were pretty good, smoked turkey was good and honestly I didn't eat the green bean casserole because nobody in my house eats it but I blessed another family with the tray. I got to take a much needed break (I did cook a few sides) with no stress, enjoyed my hubs and kids over a good meal and I met some amazing people at this establishment! I'll be back next week to try their BBQ which I hear is amazing! Please try them out! They are close to the Lynnhaven Mall area."

"I had the sliced brisket, mac and cheese, potato salad, and beans... it is LEGIT BBQ! Brisket was tender with incredible flavor as were all of the sides. I also had the sweet and spicy sauce and it was perfect. I will be back to try other things on the menu!"
