Wir hatten Hunger und sind durch Zufall in dem Lokal gelandet. Unglaublich lecker, große Auswahl, super Service und faires Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Wir waren sogar überrascht, wie günstig s war, obwohl es nur wenige Minuten vom Schloss entfernt liegt. Ein super Tip, wenn man unkompliziert sehr gut essen möchte.

Quite a great place to enjoy Texan food. So flavourful I drank a regular coke and thought it was plain. A little pricey but the waiters were so nice when looking after me and my sister when having our food. We didn’t book a reservation, and we were seated no problem 😌

Drinks were great, food was incredible and the staff were nice and friendly. I asked for a drink that had a grape garnish and she said they didn't have the garnish, so I said no problem and said the drink is okay without but I couldn't order it that way, I had to get a different drink which was disappointing but understandable ❤️

Our History

Following many visits to the southern states of Georgia, the Carolinas and Louisiana we are convinced that there is something special in this food that Irish people will love as much as we do. American Barbecue food is perfect with beer and perfect for casual dining in a bar – and it is fun! Then the French / Cajun influence of New Orleans adds a bit of finesse to ensure there is something for everyone.

To guarantee that you get the ‘real deal’ in American food our American chef has brought his unique recipes to Paris Texas and prepares them with specialist equipment including our wood smoker, broiler and char-grill which have been imported from Texas. Our dishes are prepared to suit all palates. A feature of smoked meats is that they are dry-rubbed or marinated first. As a result some of our dishes are both smokey and spicy but many are not. Some are delicately smoked (like our lamb sirloin) while others are stronger, like our ribs. But pork loves smoke – try the pulled pork to prove it for yourself!

We use all the local suppliers and ingredients that we can but for authenticity some things are imported – ghost peppers for our hottest ‘loco caliente’ sauce being a good example.

An extensive range of beers on tap

Paris Texas has an extensive range of beers on tap and in bottle to meet and challenge your tastes – just as our food does. We also pride ourselves on our range of spirits, particularly whiskeys, rums, gins and vodkas. All these spirits encourage experimentation so we probably have a cocktail with your name on it. Some even use our home-made lemonade. We also offer all our wines, including prosecco, by the glass as well as bottle.

So if you want to experience ‘real deal’ American southwest cuisine and a genuine Irish welcome we think you have made the right choice. Our team are always on hand to help you with menu choices and suggestions that will suit your mood today.
