Exceptional service and wonderfully clean and stylish bar/restaurant. I tried their jambalaya and I was very happy with it. Outstanding jambalaya or jambalaya-inspired dishes aren’t very common in Ireland in my view so I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious theirs was. My jambalaya had a lovely smokiness to it and all the meats were well-seasoned and beautifully cooked – from the crawfish to the Andouille sausages. The heat and spiciness was also just right. We revisited this place and the atmosphere was buzzing and lively.

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.
