Our gumbo will warm your body, heart and SOUL in no time! Do you have a cold you need to kick? Let Maw Maw’s gumbo do the trick! Mondays make gumbo even better with our Monday Gumbowl special! A large bowl of Gumbo with a non-alcoholic beverage every Monday for just $10.99! A deal that can’t be beat! Did you know that gumbo is an example of the melting pot nature of Louisiana cooking? The name comes from the West African word for okra, which is gombo. The use of File’ was brought in by the Choctaws and possibly other local tribes, and Roux originally comes from French cuisine. We have always stuck with okra for thickening over file’, but there are TONS of variations out there. If you come out on a weekday between 3-6:30 pm, you can enjoy your gumbo with select half priced drinks and appetizers during the Best Happy Hour in Town! You can even enjoy this beautiful Fall weather on one of our many patios around town. Fall Cold Fronts are the best in Houston, Texas and San Antonio, Texas, and we’ve got one coming through this week! Cold fronts in Houston allow you to feel that winter chill, fighting to come through and into town. We hope that cooler weather will stay longer, but we also know it wouldn’t be Texas if these weren’t our Winter forecasts! What better way to enjoy a fall cold front than to order a hot bowl of chicken and sausage Gumbo from BB’s Tex-Orleans. No matter which way you spin it, Gumbo definitely makes life YUM, and our Maw Maw cooks it better!!
